Sexual issues or concerns can often interfere with a healthy relationship and its intimacy. Sexual problems, whether they are physiological issues such as erectile dysfunction, vaginismus, and other issues, or psychological issue like anxiety and depression, can inhibit sexual desires. This results in feeling disconnected or undesirable. Many couples feel that sex is a taboo subject and any conversation relating to it needs to remain in the bedroom. This stance prevents them from being able to find the means to break through their concerns and develop new ways to satisfy their sexual desires while creating a strong emotional bond with their partners, but successful sexual satisfaction counseling can put them on the track to creating rewarding sexual experiences with their partner.
What Does Sexual Satisfaction Counseling Look Like?
The ultimate goal of sexual satisfaction counseling, also called sex therapy, is to get rid of old attitudes and old views of sex so both partners are once again able to enjoy each other and establish new approaches that improve sexual responsiveness. Sexual satisfaction therapy is not quite like marriage or couple counseling. If you’re having relationship issues, you may need to see a relationship counselor first, not a sex therapist.
With sex therapy, you will learn to recognize and attempt to solve sexual problems that are standing in the way of mutual satisfaction. These can either be physical or mental blocks. After identifying the issues, your trained counselor will recommend activities and exercises that will hopefully improve your communication and trust to enhance your sexual experiences.
Some of the strategies you will learn in sex therapy are how to relax and how not to allow distraction to disrupt you. Sometimes learning to relax can make all the difference. Other techniques taught in sexual satisfaction counseling include learning to communicate what you would like from your partner and learning non-sexual touches. Your therapists might also teach you how to increase or enhance sexual stimulation and minimize discomfort or pain during intercourse.
