Tampa Life Coach - Dr. John Arnaldi - The Intimacy Coach


Low Sexual Desire and Low Satisfaction

Many people, both men and women, experience low libido (low sexual desire) and/or reduced sexual pleasure. Problems with delayed or diminished orgasms or inability to orgasm (anorgasmia) are also common.

Situational conditions, health problems, medications and medical treatments and/or psycho-social factors may be contributors. Communication problems and relationship conflicts also can reduce sexual desire and satisfaction.

Some psycho-social factors have long-term effects, like anxiety, depression, shame, mistaken beliefs, negative body image, and traumatic experiences. These can block or diminish pleasure throughout an individual's lifetime, often without the individual's awareness.

Low self-esteem and negative body image can get in the way of love, intimacy, and sex. Negative body image means you feel unhappy with or ashamed of your appearance or parts of your body.

In coaching, we can discuss ways that you and your partner can increase the capacity for pleasure and intimate connection, including how to achieve satisfying orgasms. We begin by identifying your concerns and the sources of the problem.

Reaching your full potential for pleasure requires learning to love yourself and your body, without shame or judgment. Coaching can help you to learn to strengthen your boundaries, communicate to your partner exactly what you want and don't want, and surrender to the experience of receiving pleasure (without feeling threatened, overwhelmed, discouraged, or ashamed).
