Sexual Disorders: Problematic sex life     

Loving, sexually gratifying relationships contribute a great deal to our happiness and if we are not in such relationships we are apt to spend a great deal of time, effort and emotional energy looking for them. Sexuality is a central concern of our lives, influencing with whom we fall in love and mate and how happy we are with them. There are however, various psychological and physiological problems that make sexual fulfillment difficult for a number of individuals who develop unusual sexual interests that are difficult to satisfy in a socially acceptable manner. These are known as sexual disorders and comprise of paraphilias, sexual dysfunctions and problems related to sexual abuse and gender identity.

Types of sexual disorders:

Paraphilias or the first category of sexual disorderscan be extremely objectionable and indecent in certain cases. For instance, exhibitionists are sexually aroused by showing their genitals to strangers, who are likely to be disgusted and frightened. Other sexual variants may be problematic primarily to the individual such as transsexualism that involves discomfort with one’s biological sex and a strong desire to be of the opposite sex. Other variants such as fetishism, in which the sexual interest centers on some inanimate object or body part, involve behaviors that, although bizarre and unusual, do not clearly harm anyone.

The second category of sexual disordersfunctions around sexual abuse that is a pattern of forced or pressured sexual contact. It has devastating social effects. During the past decade there has been a tremendous increase in attention to the problem of sexual abuse of both children and adults.

The third category of sexual disorders is that of sexual dysfunctions which include problems that impede satisfactory performance of sexual acts. They include orgasmic disorders, sexual aversion disorder, premature ejaculation, vaginismus, and dypareunia and hypoactive sexual desire disorder.

Research and Sexual disorders:

Much less is known abo ut sexual deviations, abuse and dysfunctions as compared to other psychological disorders. This is because sex is still considered to be taboo in various parts of the globe. Although, sex is a major concern for a lot of people, many have a difficult time talking about it openly. Also, certain issues related to homosexuality, teenage sexuality, abortion and childhood sexual abuse are controversial.
