The fact is sexual problems come about within the context of a relationship and can’t be dealt with without considering the health of the relationship.
This leads us to the third myth which shows up like this, “I can just take Viagra, it’s quicker and easier ” Our instant society fosters quick and easy solutions even for an issue like erectile dysfunction.
People often have questions about sex therapy and their questions bring to light myths about sexuality and therapy to deal with sexual problems.I’m going to discuss some of the myths that have been brought into my office recently. It’s very common that a husband is disappointed in how frequently he and his wife are having sex.I take an active role in the therapeutic process by engaging with the client so he or she feels understood, respected, and seen.The feelings of shame, fear, anxiety and other painful emotions are soothed so the client feels taken care of.This feeds into the idea that partners don’t have to slog through the scary or embarrassing work of actually talking about sex and what turns them on, they can just take a blue pill instead.
If the male had talked with his partner he might have found she was more comfortable not having intercourse. Then there are those who might be hoping against hope.
The myth is that she is the one that needs to be “fixed” with very little to no input or participation from him.
Actually, when there are desire problems both partners are involved. There is no uninvolved partner when dealing with sexual issues. Once sex is going great all our relationship problems will be solved. Sometimes a couple will specifically request to focus on just one issue such as orgasmic capacity or premature ejaculation.
