Low Sexual Desire and Low Satisfaction
Many people, both men and women, experience low sexual
desire and/or reduced sexual pleasure. Problems with delayed or
diminished orgasms or inability to orgasm are also common.
Situational conditions, health problems,
medications and medical treatments and/or psycho-social factors may be
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.
coaching, we can discuss ways that you and your
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
learn to strengthen your boundaries, communicate to your partner
what you want and don't want, and surrender to the experience of
receiving pleasure (without feeling
threatened, overwhelmed, discouraged, or ashamed).
