The traditional treatment of psychosexual problems is often long and very generic. In recent years there has been a lot of development in the field of sexuality. The time has come for new solutions to be applied to these problems. Judgment-free therapy without embarrassment.
People can be content with who they are. Be happy through self-acceptance!
Research (Kedde, 2012) has shown that 27% of women and 19% of men experience a limitation or difficulty in sexual activity. It is thought that at least two-thirds of these have a psychological cause.
Slowly, thanks to, among other things, the arrival of 50 Shades of Gray, a more open attitude towards sex has arisen. The sexual norm is constantly changing. Sexuality has been experienced more openly since the 1960s and in the last decades more diverse expressions and preferences have been experienced. Under the influence of emancipation and also globalization, this is more and more accepted and being fought for. People experiment and explore their sexuality more than ever. It’s a stark contrast when you cannot be as open and/or free about your own sexuality, for whatever reason. The reverse side of current developments is that new types of sexual dysfunctions and fears arise. Awareness of the openness, possibilities and ideal sexual images around it means that sexual trust can reach a low point with problems such as erectile dysfunction, anorgasmia, vaginism, fear of failure, shame and problems with intimacy.
The fear of rejection and condemnation prevents people from asking for help. This should not be happening in this age and time!
Sex and sexuality are a normal part of adult life!
This statement seems obvious, but for many people their feelings about sex and sexuality are the cause of their problem. The following reasons can be identified for this:
- previous experiences;
- the learned idea that being sexual is wrong;
- the feeling that your sexual taste is abnormal;
- not being able to talk openly about sex;
- experiencing high levels of anxiety when sex is being talked about or if it is shown on TV, for example.
Sex, intimacy and affection are just as important as food and water when it comes to basic human needs. Not being able to express it is very harmful to physical and emotional health.
