7. Orgasmic Disorders
Anorgasmic (Can’t have an orgasm) – FEMALE
A disorder which may result from a traumatic experience, but can also be acquired through problems within relationships. Female Orgasmic Disorder occurs when there is a marked delay or absence of orgasm associated with the sexual activity. If this is causing a problem in the relationship, or causing personal distress for the female then it is considered dysfunctional. Often women are educated incorrectly about how the body works and they have false knowledge and expectations for orgasm. In a frank and informative therapy session, this can be altered.
Anorgasmic (Can’t have an orgasm) – MALE
The delay or absence of orgasm following what is typically a normal sexual excitation phase is not abnormal. After a normal phase of sexual excitement, the man’s orgasm is persistently or repeatedly delayed or absent. If this is causing relational or personal distress then it is worth addressing in a non-judgmental and confidential environment.
Is the persistent or recurrent experience of ejaculation with minimal sexual stimulation before or shortly after penetration. Thus, it occurs before the man (and his partner) wants it to occur. This can be embarrassing and unsatisfying for the man. It may also lead to him avoiding sexual interaction so as not to get himself in this seemingly shameful situation. By learning specific start-stop strategies, changing the sexual routine and communication, an elongated duration of intimacy can often be achieved.
