What is sexual dysfunction?

If there is an interruption, either physically or mentally, in your normal sexual routines and it is causing you emotional distress than you are most likely experiencing sexual dysfunction.

The dysfunction may be explained by strictly physical reasons (an aging man can’t get an erection anymore because of his medication) or may be strictly psychological (a man feels so nervous about having sex that he can’t achieve an erection), sometimes it is a combination of both.

There are a wide variety of Sexual Dysfunctions and most apply to males and females alike. Sexual dysfunction can be broken down into three main categories: Desire, Arousal and Orgasm. People often experience distress either in their inability to feel desire or maintain an aroused state (lubrication or erection). Additionally, some people have orgasmic problems, whereby they can’t have an orgasm or they have one too fast.
