Men’s Sexual Issues

Women’s Sexual Issues

Experiencing sexual problems can be distressing for some men. Socially, men receive messages of the need to be “good at sex” and the messages include to desire sex all the time; be able to get an erection at any desired time and maintain it; and be able to ejaculate on command (not too soon, yet not take forever). These social messages are confusing and misleading. Men who experience erectile dysfunction or impotence, premature ejaculation or cumming to quickly, delayed ejaculation (difficulty with ejaculation), or simply do not have a high sex drive are left to feel inadequate, and this can challenge their sense of well being and masculinity.

There are also other issues which can also affect men’s sexual performance. Body image issues, depression, anxiety, stress, whether personal or work stress, grief and ageing can also impact on sex lives. Most men will experience some form of sexual problems /issues, or sexual dysfunction, at some point in their lives. Psychosexual or sex therapy, or sex counselling, can help you deal with issues and problems you are experiencing with your sex life.

You may find the information below on some of the different conditions men may experience useful in your search for an explanation. If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment call Dr Christopher today. Sex Life Therapy has sex therapy clinics in Collingwood and Frankston.
