It is very intricate!
For something that is one of the most popular pastimes in the world, there is nothing simple about having sex. There are many issues that can keep a couple from enjoying sex. These issues include physical and emotional factors, each playing a part in contributing to a measure of sexual dysfunction.
There is no doubt that sex and emotions are inseparable. To begin with, studies have shown that your mental state has a lot to do with your interest in sex. It is hard to get in the mood if you have something heavy weighing on your mind, if you have had a disagreement with your partner, or perhaps feeling anxious after a difficult day at work.
Physical factors, such as a lack of sexual desire, painful intercourse, erectile dysfunction, as well as other medical problems, cannot be separated from the emotions. Each troublesome issue has a root in the mind, and the mind is the home of all your emotions.
How emotions get drawn into the discord
Problems can occur at any time, no matter how successful and satisfying a relationship may seem to be. Here are some emotional issues which can pop up and put a damper on your sex life.
- A poor body image is a real problem for both partners, and if a careless remark is made by one, it can draw hurt feelings into the relationship. Taking offence can take the spark out of love-making.
- If a partner or spouse is found out to be a cheat, trust is often broken down and may take a long time to build up again. Emotions tend to run wild at such times, and the offended person can draw emotions into the dispute, so that there may potentially be a complete shut-down of sexual relations.
- Baggage from the past, such as religious issues, or a very strict upbringing where sex was never discussed, may have created feelings of guilt or shame about the sexual act. These emotions, when brought into a relationship, often lead to sexual dysfunction and low libido issues.
If not attended to, sexual dysfunction can tear even the closest of relationships apart. If you are at a crossroads of what to do about sexual problems, it is important to communicate openly with your partner about your feelings, and also possibly get an insight into your partner’s feelings.
Addressing sexual dysfunction
If you step back and look at the big picture, you may notice that sexual problems may be affecting other areas of your life. If this factor is concerning to you, the good news is that you do have options. A visit to the doctor will help to establish the best option for you, and once you take advice and put the effort into play, you are definitely on the right path to restoring your sex life and healing the emotions that are actually inseparable from it.
