6. Arousal Disorders
Female Sexual Arousal Disorder
Female Sexual Arousal Disorder is described as the inability of a woman to have sustained sexual activity with adequate lubrication. Often, these women experience pain with intercourse and avoid sexual contact with their partner. Sometimes women have a desire for sex, however actually “completing” the interaction is difficult due to pain or lubrication problems. There are techniques and alternative strategies to address this issue.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability of a man to maintain a firm erection long enough to have sex. Erectile dysfunction is more common in older men. However the truth is it is a common problem that can occur at ANY age. If the problem is ongoing, it can cause stress and relationship problems and affect self-esteem. Often the problem worsens due to embarrassment and pressure before it will improve. It is always a good idea to expand your sexual repertoire and open up communication to better deal with a problem of this sort.
