Sexual problems are particularly difficult because of the embarrassing and taboo nature of sexuality. Commonly, they exist within the context of a relationship, so that a person's partner too, is involved. It is said that sex is roughly ten percent of a relationship, but when sex is a problem, it inflates to negatively consume ninety percent of the relationship. When one or both partners in a relationship are sexually troubled, the impact of the problem snow-balls with the passage of time.
Beyond a purely biological need for reproduction, healthy and satisfying sexual play includes a merging of partners, which reduces tension, increases emotional intimacy, contributes to the feelings of connectedness and of being loved; the qualities that people most highly value in a love relationship. Without that, the cohesion between partners is reduced and sometimes lost.
When faced with a sexual problem, a person must first admit to the problem. In seeking help to correct it through sex therapy or through a doctor, a person must acknowledge their own value. The by learning about their sexuality, about their emotions which effect their sexuality, a person must learn and grow. Overcoming a sexual problem is an opportunity to grow. Sex therapy is about helping people to grow by becoming stronger and more self -aware.
Many of the problems listed below may have a physical and an emotional source. Andrew Aaron, LICSW, as a sex therapist helps with the emotional causes of these difficulties. Visiting with a doctor, sometimes a Urologist, may also be necessary to solve the physical causes of these problems.
