Three sex problems that are more common than you think.

Emese Taylor, 17 February 2017

When it comes to sex, things can get a little embarrassing. A lot of people don’t like to discuss the details of what goes on behind closed doors, and with good reason. But this can mean that, if you’re experiencing a sex or relationship problem, you might feel isolated and alone. It can be easy to think you’re the only person in the world going through it, but we want to re-assure you that you’re not! Here are three of the most common sex problems, and a little bit about how we can help you overcome them.

Erectile dysfunction

While age can increase your changes of experiencing erectile dysfunction, it occurs in men of all ages. In fact, recent studies show that 1 in 4 men seeking help for erectile dysfunction are under the age of 40. It’s a far more common problem than you might think, with an estimated 50% of men experiencing erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives. There are things that can be done to improve the situation, and those effected should never be ashamed to seek help.

Porn addiction

Porn is more easily accessible than ever before. And, as a result, porn addiction is on the rise. Research states that in an average month, 70% of men are said to frequent porn sites. However, normal, healthy habits slip into addiction when they interfere with the ability to live life normally. If someone is struggling with porn addiction, they may find themselves unable to engage sexually without the aid of porn. It’s a problem that isn’t talked about as much as it should be, and it’s becoming increasingly common – particularly among men.

Negative body image

Having a negative body image can impact all areas of your life, including in the bedroom. Thinking of yourself as unattractive can severely impact your desire and ability to be intimate with others. When in a relationship this can often cause strain between partners. Our bodies can change quite drastically over time – whether it’s through weight change, childbirth, or simply caused by getting older. As a result negative body image is something that a lot of people struggle with, and sufferers are never alone.

The good news is all of these common problems can be dealt with.

Low Self Esteem or Falling Out of Love with Yourself.

It's often said that we can be our own worst enemies and this is never the more the case than when it comes to our mental health and well being.

Dating During the Christmas Period.

Christmas can be a stressful time for everyone. For those in an established relationship, the traumas of arranging celebrations and negotiating the often difficult path of family affairs can be a trial unto themselves and those who find themselves single can also find the festive period to be a difficult time for them.

Common Fears in a Relationship and how to Conquer them.

For many of us, a lasting relationship is a primary aspiration. For some, this will be due to their desire for companionship, for others a pursuit that results in children of their own. It is not uncommon for a relationship to be viewed as a culmination of everything one has worked towards; studying hard for a good education, striving for progression in the work place and building a comfortable home can all be seen as pieces to a larger puzzle that make up the foundations of a solid relationship.

Forgiving After a Betrayal.

To be cheated on by your partner, someone to whom you have given your trust and your love is a terrible betrayal. More than just a thoughtless act, it sets in motion a series of complex and increasingly toxic feelings, breaking down everything you have worked so hard to nurture and causing deep wounds that many simply can't recover from.
