Sex and Sexuality

Sex is important. It is what brought us here. Sex is not everything, however, but it is certainly an important aspect of our humanness. Sex is not what we see on television, read in magazines or experience on the Internet. Sex is what we make of it – it’s our own invention. Some refer to sex as a gift – others call it a curse. So how do you gauge if you are sexually healthy? If sex or sexuality causes you inordinate stress, anxiety, depression or other strong negative emotion – then you may have a sexual issue.

Sexual issues include low sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, sex that has become too routine, disagreements as to who should initiate sex, discomfort regarding sexual fantasies, and dealing with sex after an affair. Healthy sexual expression requires that you feel good about yourself. If you were abused, neglected, or have a poor self-image, it can be difficult to trust even those closest to you. Understanding, accepting and living with one’s sexual orientation is also another area that can cause considerable distress for many individuals.

The good news is that most issues of sex and sexuality are manageable and quite treatable. Psychological attention that is targeted and solution-focused can provide you with relief from your sexual issues. Dr. Cristiano is well trained and experienced in all major areas of sex and sexuality. He can help you find your answers, guide you toward your goals and assist you in regaining control of your life. But you must reach out to us first, so that we can start to help you help yourself. We encourage you to schedule your one-on-one consultation now. The longer you wait, the longer you will delay feeling better.

Ask yourself the following questions…

  • Is stress or anxiety interfering with your sex life?
  • Is sex no longer satisfying?
  • Do you have “unacceptable” sexual fantasies?
  • Are you unable to perform sexually as you once did?
  • Are you having difficulty expressing your sexual fantasies to your partner?
  • Has sexual abuse or a sexual assault diminished your desire for sex?
  • Do you think you’re addicted to pornography?
  • Are you questioning your sexuality?
  • Does your sexuality cause you stress, anxiety, anger or sadness?
  • Are you having difficulties accepting your sexual feelings?

If you answered YES to one or more of these questions, you may have a sexual issue that requires attention. We encourage you to contact Dr. Cristiano for further assistance. He can help.

Make that first step to improve your life.

You deserve no less.
