Common Men’s Sexual Issues
For some men, getting through sexual problems can be distressing. According to society, men receive messages with the needs to be “good at sex.” These messages includes:
- desire sex all the time
- Get an erection at any desired time and maintain it
- Ejaculate on command (not too soon, yet not take forever)
These social messages can often be confusing and misleading. Because some men who experience premature ejaculation, cumming too quickly, difficulty with ejaculation, erectile dysfunction or impotence, or who do not have high sex drive are left to feel INADEQUATE and this can challenge their sense of well being and masculinity.
There are other issues that men undergo with which also affects their sexual performances and overall sex lives.
- Stress whether it is personal or work
- Body image issues
Male sexual problems, issues, or sexual dysfunction may come at any point of man’s life. That is why it is suggested for a man to seek some help from a psychosexual therapist. By doing so, they can learn more about sexual health, undergo sex therapy counselling, and deal with mental health issues.
