Sex, Anxiety, and Hypnosis

Anxiety is the single most common psychological problem associated with sex and sexual intercourse. Studies show that majority of people have experienced some anxiety related to sex.

In men, the form of anxiety experienced most frequently is known as sexual performance anxiety. Men too often tend to view sexual intercourse as a kind of contest or performance that can be measured in terms of success and failure. The anticipation of failure can cause the male brain to release hormones that undermine sexual activity through premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction.

In women, the form of anxiety experienced most frequently when approaching sexual intercourse is a generalized anxiety related to stress and relationship difficulties. Women tend to view sexual intercourse as a form of intimacy, and so insecurities from relationship instabilities or body image problems can undermine their sexual arousal. Women’s sexual responsiveness tends to be more complex than men’s, but a woman’s anxiety can shut down her ability to become aroused or achieve orgasm just as easily as man’s sexual performance anxiety can cause premature ejaculation.

Hypnosis for Anxiety Related Sex Problems

Fortunately, hypnosis has a strong track record of success in treating anxiety and anxiety-related sexual dysfunctions like low arousal, premature ejaculation, and erectile dysfunction. There is also ample evidence that advanced hypnosis can help women achieve orgasm.
