Sex and sexuality are all part of being human, it is there to both procreate as well for pleasure and for many it is an integral part of a relationship. As we change our sexual side can also change, we can become more adventurous, finding different elements of sex that gives us pleasure.
That said, our as bodies changes there are conditions that can hinder our sex lives’. Just as with women, the male sexual prowess can be part of their identity. When sexual functions change adversely it can make a male feel incomplete. One of the myths around sex is that it has to be all focused around penetration, when there is much more to an active sex life.
Some of the conditions are cause by health conditions, however many have a psychological root cause or can be a mixture of both. It is always advisable to have things checked out with your GP. For the psychological element this is where Sexual Freedom Hypnosis can really help.
Sexual dysfunction can affect men of all ages, but is especially common in older men. The most common problems related to sexual dysfunction include ejaculation disorders, erectile dysfunction and inhibited sexual desire. These issues can often be corrected by treating the underlying causes.
Here are some just some of the conditions that can affect sexual intercourse.
- Erectile Dysfunction – Difficulty getting or keeping an erection.
- Premature Ejaculation - Ejaculation that occurs before or too soon after penetration.
- Delayed or inhibited ejaculation - Ejaculation does not happen or takes a very long time.
- Retrograde ejaculation - At orgasm, the ejaculate is forced back into the bladder rather than through the end of the penis
- Reduced sexual desire (Low Libido) – Decrease desire or interest in sex. The condition is often linked with low levels of the male hormone testosterone or due to also be caused by depression, anxiety or relationship difficulties
