Ever wonder… what is sex? We live in a society that is saturated with references and euphemisms for sexual activity. It’s everywhere, and is present in most areas of our lives. Sex is on the brain for lots of people, and not just men.
Sometimes, vaginismus might make you feel like you are all alone on your path to recovery. A path full of pain and uncertainty…
Staring at the nudist I've become, I wouldn't truly understand actually why I was afraid of this. Why would I ever want to hide exactly what I came into the world with during birth!
There are so many women who feel as though masturbating is truly as worthless as it sounds. Insisting that this pleasure is only limited to men and that we're feminine beings. We may never happen to do such things of that nature. Why not happen to take a leap of faith just one time and see where it leads? You'll be astounded to witness your own results.
I was awkwardly sitting on an arm chair in a well-lit office, with my sex therapist across from me, and a tissue box expertly positioned on the coffee table between us.
Has the word ‘vaginismus’ recently been introduced to your vocabulary?
I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety for many years and have been on many different prescription medications as well. The medications made me feel “normal,” for a time… until they didn’t anymore, and I had to find another prescription that would give me that normalcy again.
Ex NBA player Lamar Odom’s confession that he engaged in sexual relations with more than 2,000 women points to the issue of manhood. Even if this count is true which is dubious, it’s not a good sign. While he claims that he is a “sex addict” the truth is that there is no such thing. Having sex with scores of women does not make a man out of anyone. It makes you a hunk of flesh guided by whatever whim that points you to the next female. The psychology of his actions is for his psychiatrist to determine, but the term “sex addict” is an anti-concept. It has no definition. One might be a whim worshipper and get kicks from coital relations but that is not the same as some who remain addicted to drugs. Speaking of which, Odom claims that the sexual promiscuity triggered his drug habit. In all of the subjective ways that a male might find himself, Odom has crossed that threshold. To say that the action of laying down with women lead to a cocaine addiction is purely based on feelings. As he emoted about becoming a licentious person and adding that drugs merely supplemented the situation.
As a heterosexual female, I can't speak on behalf of all sexual relationships but, I feel like the importance of masturbation is pretty universal and is essentially the first step of getting to know your body.
Depending on where and when you grew up, as a teenager you may have gotten a moderate amount of sex-related education, you may have had a clunky demonstration of rolling a condom over a banana, or you may have been taught that abstinence is all you need to know.
