Do You and Your Spouse Have Mismatched Sex Drives? There Is Help.

Deborah O. Day, Psy.D - Monday, May 15, 2017

Like most things in life, it is good practice to find a match; someone that is on the same wave length as you are, and has the same goals. After all, if you are not heading in the same direction, how are things going to work out? That goes across the board with any relationship you have, whether a professional relationship, or a personal one. Every relationship you have, it needs to be a good match where both parties are benefiting from the relationship; needs are being met. That said, we have no real control over who the heart falls in love with, and having mismatched sex drives with your partner, can propose a list of challenges that put strain on your relationship. The key to happiness, is learning to overcome those challenges. At Psychological Affiliates in Orlando, Sex Therapy plays a major role in striving for a harmonious relationship. As much as some wouldn’t like to admit it, your sex life with your spouse, is important. What happens, or doesn’t happen in the bedroom can trickle over and carry through the other aspects of your life and your relationship. Balance is key, and understanding is key. Psychology in Orlando is the foundation at Psychological Affiliates, and therapy treatment that is interactive and engaging deems better, more effective results.


What is Sex Therapy?


There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to Sex Therapy; be it from crazy practices you may have heard of from a scandal in the past, the movies and sensationalism, or just your own opinion. There are many reasons to seek sex therapy, of them, here are some, but are not limited to:

  • -Sexual Trauma
  • -Premature Ejaculation
  • -Mismatched Sexual Drives
  • -Sexual Dysfunction
  • -Painful Intercourse
  • -Lack Ability to Achieve an Orgasm
  • -Addiction or Compulsion
  • -Trust Issues/Infidelity
  • -Orientation/Gender Issues
  • -Conflict Issues
  • -Childhood Upbringing
  • -Abuse

There is a long list of psychological effects that are imprinted when people suffer. While the act of sex is a physical action, sexuality is prominently psychological. People that have experienced issues with any of the above-mentioned challenges, may have adverse psychological residuals. Not all situations can work out on their own. Not every challenge can simply run its course and work out without the assistance of external factors. External factors like Sex Therapy can bring a level of understanding that identifies triggers, and underlying factors that play a role in one’s current state. Sex therapy, traditionally is about 8 to 12 sessions. The first session is for assessment and evaluation; identifying the issues at hand, the situation. It works like most other therapies, it seeks to identify and define the challenges, develop a customizable plan to address the resolution of emotions linked to the dysfunction or abnormality in the relationship or the individual, and to resolve the issue so that the participants may live a normal, healthy sex life.


Is There a Resolution to Mismatched Sex Drives?


There absolutely is a resolution for mismatched sex drives for couples, regardless of what the underlying reason for the mismatch is. Women and men are very different when it comes to anything sexual. Generally, men view sex differently than women, our attitudes and perception is already different. Our behavior, attitudes, fantasies and desires are very different from one sex to the other. Then, once you take into account a person’s personal preferences, their upbringing, values, and experiences, you add even more complexity to our sexuality. Relationships can be challenging, but there is always a solution for harmony. Simply altering the way you look at something, can change the way that something makes you feel. At Psychological Affiliates in Orlando, Florida, we take every case seriously, with a goal of resolution and harmonious happiness in the end. We seek to empower patients to live a full quality life.


If you are experiencing sexual challenges in your relationship, look at the other areas of your relationship and your life, may it be personal or professional, and recognize how things could be better. With our help, sex therapy could bring you a better-balanced life, providing a stronger and loving relationship for both you and your spouse.
