Most people do not know where to turn when sexual problems creep up. Unlike medical concerns, sexual issues are not something most people feel comfortable discussing with friends and/or neighbours. Most people have no trouble sharing with one another about their lives (e.g. they share parenting difficulties) but find it almost impossible to talk - even to their best friend - about specific sexual difficulties. The result is that many men and women suffer silently whilst at the same time feeling sexual inadequate and abnormal.
Our sexual self-esteem is an integral part of who we are, how we see ourselves, and how we relate to others. In a nutshell, our sexual self-esteem plays a key role in how we see ourselves not only in the bedroom, but also how we feel about ourselves “out of the bedroom.” When a sexual dysfunction develops in either partner, ultimately it will affect both partners and this may cause a great deal of distress.
