Overcome sexual issues from childhood and pursue a healthy sexuality. If you are struggling with fear of sexual intimacy, sexual compulsivity or sexual fantasies that upset you, you can learn to think of yourself in positive ways so that these issues gradually become less dominant in your life. People are often amazed at how much friendship, love and sexuality have to do with one’s relationships with one’s parents. A preoccupation with bondage is often related to parents who refused to accept the love offered by the child, or parents who frustrated the child when the child wanted to be loved. Bringing these relationships out into the open is the beginning to addressing them in positive ways.
Couples who are having sexual problems can benefit from therapy. Sometimes one or the other in the couple is angry and this is interfering with their sexual expression in their relationship. Sometimes one person has been hurt in a past relationship that is interfering with the present. Finding a safe place to talk about those hurts is essential to a healthy sexuality.
