“I feel like I have a lot of confidence, but I’m not getting the same kind of sex drive.
I’m definitely not getting as much pleasure out of it,” said Samantha, who asked that she not be named.
“It’s a weird feeling when you don’t feel the same sexual satisfaction.
There’s a disconnect between the feeling you’re getting and how much you’re actually getting.”
Samantha says she thinks she might have a sexual dysfunctions disorder, which is a combination of anxiety and a lack of control over her sexual desires.
Her partner, who is also in her early 30s, also has this condition, and she thinks it’s linked to her partner’s anxiety.
“I know that if I’m feeling anxious about sex, I’m more likely to be having difficulties,” she said.
“The sexual pleasure in a relationship is like a very high-end commodity, but when you’re struggling, that pleasure is often lacking.”
Sexual dysfunction has been identified as one of the most prevalent causes of sexual dysfunction, but there are other factors contributing to it, including a lack in self-confidence, low self-esteem and poor coping skills.
For many, the lack of sexual pleasure can be a barrier to having healthy sexual relationships, particularly for older couples.
“If you have a partner who has an anxiety disorder, you’re less likely to get the right kind of support, you may feel like you don [feel] good about yourself or you’re not as confident,” said Emily, who was diagnosed with sexual dysfunction in her 30s.
Emily said that while her partner did not have this disorder, she still struggles with her body.
“As a woman, I feel like if I don’t have sex, that I’m doing it wrong.
I don: I’m being too sensitive,” she told National Geographic.
“And if I can’t get off, I think it’s going to affect my relationship and my quality of life in general.”
She says she’s had sex less often because of the anxiety she’s experienced in her relationships, and the fear that if she doesn’t get enough pleasure out it could damage her relationship with her partner.
“My partner can’t have that type of relationship, because it’s like a huge burden, and that’s what it’s really like for me,” Emily said.
