Psychogenic erectile dysfunction is one of the most common reasons for sexological consultation. At this point in history, it is well known that there are drugs to solve the problem. However, this solution is not always the most effective nor convince the men suffering from the dysfunction.
Maybe because the Person is also interested in what may be causing it. He worries about knowing the roots of the problem to try to face them. You may be interested in analyzing them to a certain extent, and by trying to solve them at a more psychological level.
It is also true that a man who suffers from erectile dysfunction and who seeks sex therapy may feel very uncomfortable explaining his problem. We can say without a doubt that daring to talk about it is an important step in its solution, which is even more relevant in the case of this dysfunction. Often it can cause them much embarrassment to openly acknowledge the problem because erection has long been associated with masculinity, virility, and male potency.
Myths And Taboos That Do Not Help
The myths about virility certainly hinder the situation. A man who has erection problems may feel devalued by thinking he is “less man”. Unfortunately, there are numerous occasions when you react in this way. The worst thing about it is that you kind of think only increases your insecurity and your obsession with getting erections. The pressure is exerted and, under pressure, many people work worse or are blocked.
Conflicts Of Masculinity In Sex?
The funny thing is that often, everything starts with a simple trigger (a punctual erectile dysfunction). After this, the man in question is quick to think that the problem is here to stay.
This belief stems from insecurity and lack of self-confidence, as well as inadequate sexual information. The man forgets or does not know that anyone is likely to have a trigger at some point. It is something punctual and can occur for various reasons, such as being tired, stressed, or in an uncomfortable situation, to name a few examples.
The Psychological Causes Of Erectile Dysfunction
There can also be more serious causes, such as those related to depressive states. For example, it can occur due to the grief produced after the death of someone close and loved.
It should be remembered that a good part of the problem comes from the idea that the performance, especially that of the male, must be practically perfect. The human being, man or woman, is not always in a position to perform adequately in any situation and in all areas of his life, and sex is one of them.
In the development of any person, it is important to promote healthy self-esteem, which will lead to a sense of security and self-confidence that will allow you to have sexual relations with full normality. This will be useful throughout life, including also the sexual domain. Also, it is necessary to eradicate myths and beliefs that only serve to confuse and pressure both men and women.
