Sexual problems are very common. They affect individuals in what is most intimate for them. They have important consequences in terms of self-esteem and overall well-being. The sexual problems a sexologist most frequently encounters are:
- In women, a difficulty to reach sexual pleasure. It goes from the difficulty or inability to reach orgasm (anorgasmia) to a suffering during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia) or the absence of pleasure (sexual anhedonia).
- In men, the most common problem is erectile dysfunction.
Sexual traumas are an other cause of suffering that is linked to sexuality.
