pain during or after intercourse
inability to achieve orgasm
problems getting or staying sexually aroused Sexual Dysfunction in Women:
43% of women experience sexual dysfunction in some form
21% of women between 18 and 29 report physical pain with intercourse
27% of women report intercourse as being un-pleasurable
16% report anxiety surrounding sex Sexual Dysfunction in men:
31% of men report some form of dysfunction*
most common forms of sexual dysfunction in men are erectile dysfunction, ejaculation disorders, and low sex drive *lower rates of male sexual dysfunction may be caused by a lower rate of report by men What Causes Sexual Dysfunction? Sexual Dysfunction have both physical and emotional components Physical causes:

http://www.thedirtynormal.com/2010/07/15/real-pink-viagra-3-stop-having-sex/ Ways to Prevent Sexual Dysfunctions healthy eating and lifestyles can prevent high blood pressure and diabetes, which can cause erectile dysfunction
limit intake of alcohol
quit smoking
seek treatment for mood or anxiety stresses which may preoccupy the mind
increase COMMUNICATION!!! A recent study suggests that the most common cause of sexual dysfunction and disorder in women is unresolved psychological distress-- think about how connected your brain and sex are!
Drugs? Viagra works for men by increasing blood flow to the penis, but Emily Nagoski says the (still nonexistent) female equivalent WON'T work!
No sex at all...? Emily Nagoski has a lot to say about sex and communication A person's sex drive can be dependent on their confidence and feeling of control in the bedroom.
So, if a couple decides to not have sex for a month, as one person is experiencing a decreased drive, they can try this method:
person A and person B are not to have sex
person A, who does NOT experience a dysfunction, is not allowed to initiate anything
person B must initiate some sort of touching or kissing, however no touching of sexy parts
this helps to be person B into the position of power!
at the end of the month, when the time feels right, person B initiates sexy touching, which only one person acts a time
then the mutual occurs, and the situation is reassessed if the dysfunction or disorder is a low sex drive or an inability to orgasm
take a break from sex or trying to have sex
explore your body on your own time
try something new! explore different parts of your body!
take a deep breath. if the dysfunction or disorder is pain or discomfort
breathe. you are not broken.
try exploring your body and see if there's something on your own that doesn't hurt
ask a doctor! they may be able to tell you what's wrong, and there may be a simple solution! remember, orgasms shouldn't be the goal of sex. Ejaculation Disorders Inhibited Ejaculation is where ejaculation is slow to occur or takes a long time to occur
Premature Ejaculation is when ejaculation occurs before or very soon after penetration
Retrograde Ejaculation is when during orgasm, ejaculate is instead forced into the bladder rather than the urethra and thus out the penis
this can occur after prostate or bladder procedures
most often occurs in diabetic patients who experience nerve damage that allows the bladder to accept the ejaculate
