Orgasmic Dysfunction and Painful Sex

Orgasmic Dysfunction and Painful Sex

Read most magazines and you would be led to believe that most women experience at least one, if not multiple, orgasms every time they have sex. Recent statistics indicate, however, that less than a third of women regularly achieve a single orgasm and of the suffering majority, many have never achieved an orgasm at all during intercourse.

Orgasmic Dysfunction

Orgasmic dysfunction or anorgasmia are the medical terms that describe the condition in which a woman has difficulty reaching orgasm. Difficulty reaching orgasm is common in women. Some studies have estimated that one in three women have difficulty reaching orgasm with a partner.

Some women have never experienced an orgasm, either with a partner or even when alone. For others, they seem to have lost connection with their orgasmic sensations, possibly after some trauma, health or relationship crisis. Some women can experience orgasm during masturbation or ‘foreplay’ but not during sexual intercourse. Not being able to experience orgasms can be frustrating and have a negative impact on a relationship.

Painful Sex

Technically, the medical term for painful sex is dyspareunia. There may be physical reasons for this and for that reason it is important to seek medical advice, especially if there are symptoms such as bleeding, genital lesions, irregular periods, vaginal discharge, or involuntary vaginal muscle contractions.

However, there are many cases where the causes for painful sex are psychological, emotional, relational or a combination of all three. For cases of sexual pain in which there is no underlying medical cause, the ICASA Sexual Recovery Programme may be the treatment of choice due to the transpersonal element of the programme and it’s effectiveness in helping to transform negative thoughts and feelings that may have resulted from repressed conditioning, guilt or other unresolved factors from past sexual experiences. For some women, Surrogate Partner Therapy may be helpful, or in some cases essential in order to gain positive experience in a secure and supportive therapeutic environment.

So where do women who cannot achieve an orgasm or those for whom sexual intercourse is a painful experience turn to for help? Through The ICASA Recovery Programme these problems can now be not only addressed but successfully overcome. Discovering how to use your body in harmony with your sexual responses is a natural process that can be experienced without anxiety through the supportive and sensitive help available through the ICASA Sexual Recovery Programme.
