Sex Therapy Central Coast & Newcastle

Sex and lovemaking can be the most delicious or dissatisfying part of your life and your relationship.

 

Sex is about so many things; Love, fun, eroticism, lust, connection, pleasure, ravishment and surrender.
Great sex and lovemaking can be the glue that keeps you feeling deeply and physically connected with each other, enabling you to weather many other kinds of storms in your relationship and life in general.  

The paradox of sex is that when it is good and satisfying, sex plays a small but positive role in your relationship (about 15 – 20%) ; BUT when sex is unsatisfying, avoided or a problem, it plays a hugely powerful drain and negative role in your relationship. (from 50 to 75%)

Many couples experience sexual problems

About 45% of couples have concerns or problems with sexual desire, arousal, orgasm or sexual satisfaction. Sex problems are rarely a simple performance problem with a simple cure. They are a result of psychological, physical and relationship factors and can cause great  emotional suffering and distress.

Although sex is a common topic for jokes  and social conversations, most couples don’t really talk much with each other about what they like and don’t like, nor are most people educated on how to have an enjoyable and healthy sex life.  Most people get by on trial and error and some information picked up from books, television and friends.

How does a long term relationship affect sex?

Often it is assumed that once you have been together for a period, that the fun and quality of your sex life naturally diminishes, but research has shown that this is not the case, and that the best sex can actually  happen in couples who have been in a committed relationship for 15 years or longer.
