Sexual health is a big part of life. It can affect and is affected by other aspects of health. This includes physical, mental, emotional, and social health. Being in good sexual health means you are well informed, careful, and respectful to yourself and others. It also means enjoying yourself sexually in a way you are comfortable with.
The first thing to consider is to know if you want to see a therapist by yourself or you want to see a therapist with your partner. That is, do you need an “individual therapist” or a “couple’s therapist”. Most therapists who see couples also have experience with individual counseling but are aware that couple’s therapy is truly a specialty and you want to see someone who has experience with couple’s. Just because someone is an excellent individual counselor does not mean that they are successful with couples.
There’s no doubt that you’ve likely seen many commercials promoting different ways for men to improve their sexual function and desire. If you take these ads at face value, you may be tempted to think that only one gender matters when it comes to sex.
