Sexual relations can be the most intimate and satisfying communication two people experience. Yet sex is difficult for people to talk about, let alone improve, when problems occur.

Sexual concerns can evolve slowly over years. Or arrive without warning. Problems with sex offer an opportunity to restore an entire relationship. But these same issues can end a relationship.

Sexual Problems
Common Causes and Solutions

Many sexual problems are caused by common, treatable conditions such as: Depression, Anxiety, Menopause, PMS, and other medical conditions. This site provides the Sex-Test for you. These conditions are all treatable with medication and/or therapy (or both). Seeking help for a sexual problem is no longer cause for embarrassment.

Problems With Sex...

What Are They?

Sooner or later, each of us as a couple or an individual will have a sexual problem. In most cases, we won't even remember when the problem started...we'll just notice that it hasn't gone away. Perhaps we won't even know what to call these problems. Here's a partial list of some of the more common complaints:

  • Desire Discrepancies: A common conflict between partners where one desires sex more or less frequently than the other, often resulting in marital as well as sexual conflict.  Order CDs or tapes  1, 3 and 5 for men or 1, 4 and 6 for women.

  • Impotence: Inability of a man to attain or sustain an erection satisfactory for intercourse. Order CDs or tapes 1,4 and 6.

  • Premature Ejaculation: Consistent inability to control the ejaculatory response for as long as the male desires.  Order CDs or tapes 4 and 6.  This is 100% curable.  Ask questions through Email.

  • Retarded Ejaculation: A phenomenon in which intra-vaginal ejaculation does not occur; often an emotional response.  Order CDs or tapes 1,4 and 6.

  • Non-Orgasmic Response: (Inability to climax)  Difficulty with orgasm with a partner. Order CDs or tapes 1, 3 and 5

  • Dyspareunia: Painful intercourse. This can be due to a variety of physical, hormonal or physiological problems, often accompanied by emotional distress. Order CD or tape 5 and Private Pain: It's about life, not just sex..A book on Vaginismus; Ditza Katz, Ph.D and Ross Lynn Tabisel, Ph.D.; Hardcover
    List: $34.95 ~ Our Price: $30.45  

  • Vaginismus: A conditioned spasm of the lower vaginal muscles which makes penetration painful-sometimes impossible.  Order CD or tape 5 and Private Pain: It's about life, not just sex..A book on Vaginismus; Ditza Katz, Ph.D and Ross Lynn Tabisel, Ph.D.; Hardcover
    List: $34.95 ~ Our Price: $30.45  

  • Aversion: A problem that has a continuum of symptoms, from low sex drive to the total avoidance of all sexual contact. Aversion may have a physical basis, but usually has emotional origins. Order CDs or tapes 1, 3 and 5.

Behind each of these clinical terms are people-perhaps people like you and your partner- who believe that seeking help for a sexual problem should be no more embarrassing than visiting your family doctor for a sore throat.

Our audiotape series, Your Sexual Health, explains in detail the sexual problems discussed above and treatments available. An excellent resource for everyone.
