Get Better Sex

getting better sexGetting better sex has a lot to do with being comfortable in your own skin, being attuned to your partner, and perhaps most of all, relaxing.

When things don’t happen the way you want or expect them to a whole range of challenges can arise in the relationship – strains rising out of the lack of rise in the bedroom perhaps, so let’s look at that.

According to D V Patel, U Patel and J Halls from the Department of Clinical Radiology at St George’s hospital in London, Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is defined as the persistent inability to achieve or maintain penile erections of sufficient value to engage in satisfactory sexual activity. It represents a noteworthy burden upon public health and research estimates that roughly 50% of men aged between 40 and 70 years suffer from ED.

Erectile Dysfunction is caused by physiological, psychological and sociocultural influences and these include fear of intimacy, inadequate sexual information, mental health problems e.g. depression, obesity, traumatic sexual experiences, performance anxiety, poor self-image and major life events, such as pregnancy, childbirth, or loss of a job. A study found that Erectile Dysfunction affects more than one million men in Australia and is more rampant with age.

The International Consultation Committee for Sexual Medicine revealed that the frequency of erectile
dysfunction is:
· 1%–10% in men younger than 40 years
· 2% to 9% in men aged 40 -49 years
· 20%–40% in men aged 60–69 years
· 50% to 100% in men older than 70 years

Previous research proposes that erectile dysfunction has significant psychological and social effects. Researchers John Tomlinson and David Wright stated that when the Sexual Advice Association conducted an online survey, 62% of participants stated that erectile dysfunction reduced their self-esteem while 29% admitted their relationships was affected and 21% reported that their relationship had ended. Erectile dysfunction can be treated at any age but treatment is dependent on your overall health and the underlying cause of the problem.

Over the past 100 years the role of hypnosis in medicine has been rapidly evolving. It was reported by David Spiegel from Stanford University, one of America's leading psychiatrists that official studies highlight that hypnotism does indeed work and its effect on the brain can now be scientifically proven. Hypnosis is defined by scholars as an altered state of consciousness during which a therapeutic goal can be achieved as a result of suggestions made by the Hypnotherapist.

Most erectile dysfunction sufferers get into their own heads, plaguing themselves with questions like “Will this happen again?” and the prospect of sexual intimacy can lead to major anxiety and stress.

Characteristically men who have impotence problems have a great deal of fears, let downs and insecurities about their next sexual encounter. It is truly amazing and in this situation quite unfortunate that a single thought can have such a powerful affect.

Impotence is in most cases caused by physical factors such as sickness, drugs or alcohol however the most debilitating factor of them all is psychological. Hypnosis has proved to be such an effective cure for the psychological factors of impotence and this is because:

· The control of sexual performance is handed back to the subconscious mind. When a man stops ‘trying’ to achieve an erection, the more likely it is that it will happen.
· It helps tremendously to lower anxiety when it comes to sexual performance
· It reintroduces one’s mind to old patterns for not only getting but also maintaining an erection.

It seems that many who suffer from erection problems tend to feel embarrassed and often suffer in silence. Such a waste when treatment using hypnotherapy for erectile dysfunction can prove to be very gratifying and provide really rewarding results.
