Sexual problems

People of all ages have sexual problems.

If you suffer from erectile dysfunction, have issues getting aroused or having an orgasm, experience pain during sex, or exhibit addictive behavior relating to sex, we have good news for you: There are real solutions to these problems.

Sexual problems are more common than you think

Are you concerned as a woman because you have muscle cramps, pain, or difficulty having an orgasm during sex? Are you concerned as a man because you have erectile dysfunction or exhibit addictive sexual behavior? Do erectile dysfunction or sex addiction worry you as a man? Many people go through these situations. Sexual problems are more widespread than you might think. They affect people of all ages.

psychological causes

Sexual problems can be a result of both physical and psychological issues. Many people think that sexuality works naturally and is always fulfilling. Those who experience it differently may feel inadequate or frustrated.

On the contrary, it’s perfectly natural that one’s sexual activity changes in frequency and quality in the course of life or a relationship. Problems such as erectile dysfunction, pain during sex, addiction to sex, or difficulties getting aroused or having an orgasm, often occur due to:

  • a demanding or stressful life situation
  • a lack of self-esteem or low self-worth
  • damage to a relationship or to bonds with a partner

Sexual problems are a clear sign that change is on the horizon. It’s normal not to know what to do next. If a condition persists for too long, it makes sense to seek professional advice and support.

Sexual problems trigger shame

Since sexual problems are stigmatized in our society, they trigger incredible insecurity and shame. Healthy sexuality depends on many complex factors and is naturally prone to difficulty. Everyday stresses and relationship conflicts can reduce the desire to have sex. You are not alone in this. Get yourself help!

Addressing sexual problems

Certain themes are essential to our experience of sexuality and eroticism. It’s not just about how you live your sexuality, but also about the particular meaning you attach to it. Sex can be an act of intimacy, of communication; to express gratitude, or to relieve tension. These ideas are closely linked to one’s own personal history.

If your sexual problems persist for more than six months and you cannot get any closer to a solution, then seek help and advice in counseling, therapy, or from a specialist. This is an important first step.

Sexuality seems to be taboo in our society. Nevertheless, most people find it difficult to have an open conversation about their problems in this area.
