Sex reduces stress, results in better sleep, lowers risk for heart attack and lowers blood pressure. But studies show 40 percent of women experience sexual dysfunction. Sexual dysfunction is anything that prevents a partner from experiencing satisfaction at any point during sexual activity.
A lack of arousal or desire to have sex, inability to orgasm and pain disorders all constitute sexual dysfunction. Symptoms of sexual dysfunction are different between men and women, and have both physical and psychological causes. There are a range of treatments, including therapy, education and medication.
Sexologist Lindsey Doe answered Mamalode’s sex questions before, and she covers all imaginable topics on her YouTube channel, Sexplanations. We suggest her videos on sex drive, choosing a professional, and bringing sexy back.
A recent study found that just talking about sexual dysfunction can have the same impact on your sex life as medication would. So start communicating.
