Sexual desire disorders
Sexual desire disorders are different from sexual arousal disorders: the latter deals with the physical inability to have sex while the former deals with reduced mental or emotional desire for sex. In other words, sexual arousal is all about the body and sexual desire is about the brain. Lack of, or decrease in, sexual desire can include depression, aging, lack of exercise, hormonal changes, stress, changes in the relationship that may range from pregnancy and children to retirement and self-esteem. Sexual desire can be impacted by either physical or emotional problems. Talk to your doctor or give us a call.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, is a very common condition in men. Talk to your doctor or visit WebMD for more detailed information.
Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (FSAD)
This very common condition affects 43% of American women. Symptoms center around the physical inability to become aroused. Talk to your doctor or a sex therapist. Symptoms can be altered by changing positions, using tools or surgery may be necessary. But most symptoms can be addressed.
Fetishes & Paraphilias
Paraphilias and fetishes are conditions in which people develop uncontrollable sexual responses toward specific objects. Different from merely an unusual sexual attraction or preference, paraphilias can cause unhealthy sexual obsession and can drastically interfere with the victim's life.
Gender Identity Disorder (GID)
Also known as Gender Dysphoria, this condition is not to be confused with transexualism or transvestitism. This disorder can occur in childhood or adolescence, as well as in adults. It is normal for children to go through a phase were they choose to identify with the opposite sex parent. If behaviors become extreme is may be a signal of abuse. This is a complex disorder; a strong and persistent cross-gender identification. For some it may not adversely impact their lives. If you are confused about your gender identity please get help; depression is common while struggle with this disorder. Information is available at various internet sites or by contacting a caring professional in your area or call us.
If you can't seem to reach orgasm, you aren't alone. You may have Orgasmic Disorder, a condition that affects millions of women and men. Male / Female Orgasmic Disorder (OD) is a persistent or recurrent delay in, or absence of , orgasm following a normal sexual excitement phase. It is very important to remember that because of the great variability that exists between individuals in the amount and type of stimulation required for orgasm, the diagnosis of OD requires that the condition be distressing and interfering to the person.
Premature ejaculation, while common, is far from permanent or incurable. This is ejaculation that occurs before the individual or couple would like. Physically, methods can be learned from your doctor or other internet sites, such as WebMD, to control your orgasm. Psychologically, premature ejaculation can be caused by stress, anger or old issues that surface in your sex life such as guilt or shame.
