In today’s time, sexual problems are easier to treat than ever; with the right medication, and sex therapy and a good sexologist. As we grow older, the hormonal and anatomical changes have an impact on our sexual life as well. What we fail to realize is that such problems can be easily resolved, only if we seek out the right kind of help.

Barring physical or medical reasons for sexual dysfunctions, minor issues can be resolved with lifestyle adjustments. Here a few ways you can avoid sex life pitfalls:

1-Read and educate yourself:

Do not think yourself alone if you are facing a sexual issue. There are many people out there, suffering from multiple sexual issues. Therefore, find time to educate yourself about your problem so that you can discuss it with your spouse and get a better handle on things.

The best thing for you to do is to talk with your partner, but if you are hesitant, then just underlining a particular passage and making your spouse read it can help shed light on your concern.

2-Don’t have unrealistic expectations:

Many sexual issues stem from the comparison of real-life experiences with those shown on screen. People fail to realize that people on screen are merely acting and none of those emotions and feelings is genuine. Movies and series thus set up people with unrealistic expectations and when those expectations are not met, that’s when people face sexual pitfalls.

3-Don’t compare your life with others:

Just like real life scenarios should not be compared with those on screen, similarly, real-life relationships should not be compared to other peoples’ relations. Everyone has different battles to fight, so it is unfair to yourself if you are comparing your life to others.

4-Talk with your partner:

As mentioned before, talking to your partner can help sort so many sexual issues. However, many of us find it difficult to discuss this subject, even with our spouses. Any talk of sexual problems can make one self-conscious and vulnerable. Nonetheless, it must be realized that your partner and you may not be on the same page when it comes to sex, and only with discussion and dialogue can you solve sexual issues.

5-Do something relaxing:

It could be that you or your partner are simply anxious before sex. If so, a simple and relaxing mutual activity can help put both of you at ease. It could be anything from watching a movie together, reading or going for a walk.

6-Seek the help of a sex therapist:

When nothing seems to be working for you, the answer may lie in seeking outside help. A sex therapist can help you identify your sexual issues, and solve them with the help of your spouse. A sex therapist can also help re-establish intimacy between you and your spouse without you feeling pressured.
