Normal Sexuality
Normal person's sexual attraction to another, the passion and love that follows are deeply associated with the intimate happiness which is determined by anatomy, physiology, living style, relationship with the other person and developmental experience throughout the life Normal sexual behaviour brings pleasure to oneself and one's partner, involves stimulation of the primary sex organs including coitus; it is devoid of inappropriate feelings of guilt or anxiety and is not compulsive.
Sexual Dysfunction
The essential feature of the sexual dysfunctions is inhibition in one or more of the phases, including disturbance in the subjective sense of pleasure or desire or in the objective performance. Either type of disturbance can occur alone or in combination. They can be lifelong or acquired, generalized or situational, and result from psychological factors, physiological factors, or combined factors. Sexual disorders can lead to or result from relational problems, and patients invariably develop an increasing fear of failure and self-consciousness about their sexual performance. Sexual dysfunctions are frequently associated with other mental disorders, such as depressive disorders, anxiety disorders and personality disorders etc. Sexual function can be adversely affected by stress of any kind, by emotional disorders, or by ignorance of sexual function and physiology. The dysfunction may be lifelong or acquired that is, it can develop after a period of normal functioning. The dysfunction may be generalized or limited to a specific partner or a certain situation.






Welcome to the Sex Therapy Postgraduate Training Institutes. We are certified sex therapists and supervisors providing sex therapy certification training for medical and mental health professionals.

We offer three unique and stimulating educational Institutes -- Medical Sex Therapy: integrating sexual medicine and the practice of sex therapy in a one week program; the Florida Postgraduate Sex Therapy Training Institute: a one year, once a month course offered via live webcast from our Palm Beach campus; and the Sex Therapy Postgraduate Training Institute of New York: held at the prestigious Faculty House of Columbia University, meeting five times a year for two years.
What is Sex Therapy Certification?

Professional training in sex therapy was established in 1970 with the publication of Masters and Johnson’s book “Treating Sexual Inadequacy.”


Many medical and mental health experts have since written extensively in the sexual field, and have defined specific behavioral and cognitive approaches across a wide range of disciplines. Sex therapy is a specialized psychotherapeutic modality often utilizing a short term approach.

The sex therapist deals openly and directly with sensitive issues. Clinicians who treat individuals or couples of any orientation, families of any configuration, persons dealing with gender issues, or victims and perpetrators of sexual abuse gain expertise practicing specific sex therapy techniques.
______________________________________
Areas of Concentration
Our program covers a wide variety of sex therapy topics including:
• Sexual Dysfunctions and Disorders
• Psychosexual Assessment
• Sexual Trauma
• Treatment of Sexual Problems
• Sexual/Relationship Problems.


Adolescence

Adolescence is simply a transition stage from childhood to adulthood. It is a stage which all young people go through to become biologically and sexually mature. In girls it may start as early as 9 or 10 years and in boys it begins around 12 or 13 years. Adolescence is a time of rapid change in the body, emotions, attitudes, values, intellect and relationship.

Adolescence changes are triggered by hormones of the pituitary gland and the gonads. The hormones bring about the development and maintenance of the secondary sex characteristics.

Adolescence are passionate people and are apt to be carried away by impulse. They can experience irrepressible joy or inconsolable sadness, gregariousness or loneliness, altruism or self-centeredness, insatiable curiosity , confidence or self doubt.

An adolescent is expected to

_ become independent of his/her parents.

_ establish a new social and working relationship with peers of both sexes as well as with adults.

_ adjust to sexual maturity and changing roles

_ decide on future goals.

A soothing lotion is used for application

The Getting partner gives verbal/non verbal directions about preferences for the location and the intensity of touching

The giving partner provides pleasure accordingly to the getting partner

The getting partner should inform the giving partner if anything is unpleasant, irritating or distracting

Both should think and feel sensuously

Avoid touching the breasts and genitals at this stage

The couple should Not proceed to intercourse

The entire procedure is reciprocated by the other partner

The procedure is repeated daily for 3-4 days.

Step 2

Coital Postures

Objects:

The Individual need variation and break the monotony. Certain postures may promote or prevent fertility. Certain postures compensate incompatibility due to overweight, protuberant belly, fleshy thighs and indifference in stature of both partners.

Limitations: Coital Postures base on Sexual Response

1) Alfred Kinsey writes “Sexual responses involve steady and convulsive building-up of neuromuscular tensions. As action develops, abrupt build-up of tensions at the approach of orgasm, remarkable rigidity develops before orgasm, explosive discharge of neuromuscular tensions at orgasm and abrupt cessation of tension after the orgasm….

…… The attention of individual is so centered on the sexual activity that he is not consciously aware of the sensory stimulation.”

Therefore, it would not be easy to maneuver the desired coital posture.

Second Limitation of Coitus.

2) The alignment of penis with the vaginal canal is must for intromission.

3) Seeing the pictures of coital postures is stimulating, but their practical performance is not easy.

4) Most of coital postures shown in books are like acrobatics.

Do coital postures enhance the pleasure?

Eating ice-cream in sitting, standing, or Shirshasan does not improve taste. Same rule applies here.

Ideal Coital Posture:

1) Should be easy for complete intromission.

2) Should be convenient for pelvic movements.

3) Should be comfortable for both.

4) Should be giving pleasure for both.

5) Should be suitable for fertility.

Coital Postures:

There are certain advantages and limitations to every coital posture.

1) Un consummation Position: Women keeps her legs straight and wide apart. Man sleeps on top. This is unsuitable for coitus. As alignment is wrong, the semen is spilled on the vulva. This may lead to un consummation and infertility.

2) ‘T’ Position: Woman sleeps on cot. She is brought down to the foot end of bed. Man kneels on floor between her two thighs so that he is perpendicular to her. A pillow is kept under his knees to raise his torso. Man can see genitals of both and maneuver the alignment. He holds her thighs to make pelvic movements, and stimulate clitoris simultaneously. Posture suitable for beginners and obese people.

3) ‘L’ position: Suitable for those who sleep on ground. Women sleep with pillow under her buttocks, separates her thighs apart and bends them towards her belly. Man sits in Vajras an between her thighs, perpendicular to her and moves forwards so that his thighs are under her thighs. This posture is also for beginners and obese persons.

4) Male superior coital position: Woman sleeps on bed with pillow under her buttocks, separates her thighs wide apart and bends them towards her belly. Man sleeps on her, inserts penis in vagina and makes pelvic movements by embracing her. Because of close contact man gets orgasm faster. Woman is pinned down and devoid of clitoral stimulation. She may not get orgasm in this position.

5) Knee-elbow Position: Woman supports her body on her knees and elbows. Man kneels behind her.

6) Training position for Ejaculatory control: Man sleeps on bed with his knees bent and separated. Woman sits between his thighs and extends her legs on the side of his body and stimulates his penis. Used in treatment of premature ejaculation to train the penis for delaying the ejaculation.

7) Position for female stimulation: Woman sits on bed and separates her thighs. Man sits behind her with his legs outside her. Suitable for stimulation of breasts and clitoris.

8) Female superior coital posture: Man sleeps on bed. Woman sits on him with her thighs outside his. She inserts penis in vagina and makes sliding movements so that her clitoris is rubbed against his pubis. Woman can have orgasm quicker. Man can last longer. Man is pinned down. Not suitable for fertility.

9) Lateral Position: Both lie laterally in face-to-face position. Both are free to move. Coital act lasts longer.

Note:

· After insertion coition lasts for 1-3 min.

· Simultaneous orgasm of both is not possible.

· Woman should have orgasm prior to man, during fore play by stimulation of breast and clitoris. This will lubricate vagina and enhance stimulation of penis. If he has orgasm prior to her’s, he loses erection and she remains half way.

· It is man who initiates activity.

· Man is interested more in orgasm, while woman is interested in more in foreplay.

Medico Legal Aspects of Sex Therapy

INTRODUCTION

Sex and human sexuality are sensitive subject. To deal effectively with any problem of human sexuality , one has to constantly evaluate its merits and demerits from social , scientific , moral , ethical and most importantly from the legal angle. Following are some of the guidelines for therapist to keep in mind while dealing with clients with sexual problems.

CONSENT

Taking informed and expressed consent is of utmost importance while managing any patient. Examining and / or treating a patient without consent would amount to assault and battery which is punishable under criminal law irrespective of absence of negligence or successful outcome of treatment. The consent should be free willed, informed, intelligent , specific and express. Person giving consent should be competent to do so, failing which, consent should be obtained from the lawful guardian of the patient(In cases of minor and/or Mentally retarded).

EXAMINATION OF A FEMALE CLIENT

Besides obtaining a valid consent, in case of female patient, the therapist should always have a female assistant present when examining a female patient This is important for the therapist in order to protect himself from a possible charge of indecent behaviour molestation or even sexual offence like rape ect. Being llevelled against him . Mere presence of husband or any male companion of the female patient is not enough. A sex therapist, in particular, is most vulnerable and therefore should be most careful.

USE OF SURROGATE PARTNERS

Use of surrogate Partners for sex therapy is questionable both ethically as well as legally. Sexual involvement of the therapist is universally accepted as unethical. There have been a number of cases where the therapists themselves, having acted as surrogates, have been punished for sexual molestation of their patients. It may also invite a criminal charge of adultery in some countries, including India .there are cases on record where the therapists have been charged with and convicted of rape.

Unlike some other countries, the socio cultural set up in India is different. The laws governing sexual behaviour are neither liberal nor evolved as much as in some of the western countries. Besides, surrogacy is likened to prostitution by many. Even if one were to consider surrogate partner as a therapist, then the ethical code prevents a sexual relationship with a client. Moreover, there is every possibility of a disease being transmitted. Particularly the HIV infection, in view of sex with multiple partners by a surrogate person.

Therapist should have uppermost in mind the special values of intimacy and love that our culture teaches us to nurture.

PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCY

It is the ethical responsibility of every sex therapist to maintain high standards of Professional competence and integrity. Competence without integrity or integrity without competence is an unsatisfactory compromise of professionalism. It is most important to protect the public and the other professionals from persons who represent themselves as sex therapists who are in fact lacking in competence and integrity.

Competence in another primary discipline such as psychology, psychiatry or counselling is not equivalent to competence in sex therapy.

A sex therapist should possess adequate knowledge of the following:

1. Sexual and reproductive anatomy and physiology.

2. Developmental sexuality from a psychobiological point of view.

3. Marital, Family and Interpersonal Relationship and Socio-cultural factors in sexual values

4. Physiological and medical factors that may influence sexual functions such as pregnancy, contraception and fertility, illness, disability, medications .

5. Multimodal techniques and theory of sex therapy and psychotherapy.

6. Pharmacology of the medications used to treat sexual dysfunctions particularly with respect to their adverse effects and interactions with the drugs being consumed for other ailments.

7. Ethical issues in sex therapy and principles of evaluation and referral.

8. Laws related to sexual behaviour.

POINTS TO BEAR IN MIND

· All forms of sex therapy which violate the local laws should be handled with care recommending oral sex as a part of therapy is violative of section 377 of the indian penal code which deal with unnatural sexual offences.

· The Hippocratic oath forbids the physician to take advantage of the therapeutic context in order to engage in either homosexual or heterosexual relationship.

· It is a universal rule that whenever dealing with reproductive functions is involved, express consent of both the spouses should be obtained.

· Proof of competence is the ability to provide objective and responsible services to the clients.

· There does exist a potential liability under the laws of the land prohibiting consensual conduct such as prostitution, fornication, lewd and lascivious behaviour and adultery which might arise from therapeutic or nontherapeutic sex research activities.

· Sex between therapist and client is always unethical. No matter how therapeutic the rationale might appear, there is no justification for a therapist having sex with a client. The purpose of sex therapy is to improve function, not to change values or beliefs of the client.

Frigidity

Frigidity is inhibited sexual excitement during sexual activity. Frigid means cold. The term frigid refers to non-response to emotion, applied especially to inability on the part of the woman to feel sexual desire. A frigid female is devoid of sexual feelings and cannot achieve an orgasm.

Aphrodisiacs

These are substances thought to increase the sexual drive or ability of the individual. They are mainly desired by males.There is constant search for aphrodisiacs. Over the centuries human beings have used extracts of trees, roots, flowers, insects, animal parts, Spanish fly, strychnine, alcohol, and drugs for this purpose. However, according to scientific research there is no effective aphrodisiac available.

Foreplay

The best aphrodisiac can be a caring, sharing partner and foreplay. This is the stimulation of sensitive body parts to get the partners into the excitement stage. The sensitive body areas different in individuals. Therefore the partners have to explore each other to find out sensitive areas that will lead to sexual excitement.

These areas could be the ear lobes, neck, lips, inside skin of the upper arms or things, toes, fingertips, soles of the feet, breasts, and genitals. These sensitive areas are called erogenous zones. These areas can be stimulated by stroking, squeezing, tickling, licking etc. the partners must communicate and express to each other what is pleasurable to them and what is not. A woman usually takes a longer time to get aroused than a man; so foreplay should take this into consideration.

Once the two partners have agreed to have a sexual relationship then it is the responsibility of each partner to satisfy the needs of the other. This should be done with care, understanding and respect.

Conception

Conception is the physical and physiological process of a sperm fusing with an ovum. Conception occurs as a result of sexual intercourse. The society requires a child to have a father and a mother, not just so that they contribute a sperm and an egg cell, but so that they can nurture a child after it is born. Therefore, society expects children to be born in marriage. However, a man and a woman who are not married are capable of sexual intercourse and of making a baby. But this baby may be socially at disadvantage if brought up by a single biological parent.

When a man and a woman want to have a baby, vaginal intercourse provides a kind of sharing. The timing is important as the egg in a woman has a life span of only 12 to 24 hours. Hence, the period during which the egg and the sperm can unite is limited to about 2 days in a month, around the time of ovulation. May differ in some women. However, sperms are produced in millions each day, facilitating fertilization since only one sperm is required to fuse with the egg cell. The moment of the ovum by the sperm is called conception. It normally takes place in the outer part of the Fallopian tube.

During vaginal intercourse the erect male penis enters the vagina of the female. Sperms are ejaculated near the cervix of the uterus. The sperms swim from the uterus into the Fallopian tube and to the ovum. The head of the sperms enters the ovum and its tail is dropped off. The nuclei of the male and the female cells then fuse to form the zygote. This is called fertilization and leads to conception.

The directions for making a new baby are contained in the zygote. So both partners contribute to the characteristics of the baby.

5 Ways to Enlarge Your Penis

Men are always concerned about their size and in extreme cases, this concern is also a cause of anxiety disorders. Even though, a large penis does not provide men any edge in terms of sexual pleasure, still it is big cause of concern for most of them. Other factors like erectile function and length of sexual intercourse play a more important role in sexual pleasure.

Here are the 5 ways to enlarge your penis:

  1. Have lots of fruits and vegetables: For a healthy and long penis, you need to have fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants. These elements are very helpful in fighting free radicals (elements that damage your body) that form in the blood vessels. Additionally, antioxidants also help in strengthening the blood vessels.
  2. Say yes to exercise: Exercising regularly can significantly affect your penis size and cause you to have a long and healthy penis. By exercising from time to time, you end up improving blood flow to the organ as well as clearing up the blood vessels.
  3. Cut down on your stress levels: Stress and anxiety can also reduce the size of your penis. This happens as negative feelings cause blood to flow from the penis. As a result, it becomes very difficult to increase the size of the organ. Another reason that can contribute to the small size of your penis may be sexual performance anxiety.
  4. Quit or reduce smoking: Smoking can considerably affect the size of your penis due to the blockage that small tobacco smoke particles create in the arteries that supply blood to the penis. Moreover, since smoking is associated with heart diseases, the flow of blood to several organs in the body gets affected including the penis.
  5. Take a warm shower: A warm shower can aid in increasing blood flow to not only your body but also the penis. The warmth of the water aids in augmenting blood flows into the organ, enabling the growth of the penis.

Male Orgasmic Disorder


Definition:
Persistent or recurrent delay in, or absence of, orgasm following a normal sexual excitement phase during sexual activity.

In this disorder, a male cannot reach orgasm during intercourse although can ejaculate by partner's manual or oral stimulation. Some can ejaculate only during masturbation. Some have ejaculation during sleep but not in waking period.
Orgasm and ejaculation though occur simultaneously, are different entities. Orgasm can occur in the absence of ejaculation and vice versa.

Causes:

Dislike for a partner.
Testosterone deficiency.
Religious restrictions.
Myopathy, Neuropathy.

Masturbation guilt.
Spinal cord lesion.
Guilt regarding nocturnal.
Retrograde ejaculation.
Emission.
Fear of pregnancy.
Drugs.
Inadequate sexual stimulation.
High threshold of ejaculatory reflex.
Low Libido.
Mental Block.

Treatment:

Sensate Focus exercise (mutual pleasuring) is employed daily for first 3 days. Since sex is not allowed, it eliminates the pressure to perform.

Once this is achieved, she stimulates him to the highest degree and as a man approaches ejaculation she inserts penis in the vagina in a woman on top position. If a man is unable to ejaculate she again stimulates him manually and again reinserting when ejaculation is imminent.

Vibrators:

Used for stimulation of the penis.

Common sexual problem in the male erectile dysfunction

Erections. Morning erection.
Certain drugs may impair libido-b-blockers, spironolactone, metoclopramide, cimetidine, opiates (addiction), butyrophenone, anticholinergic drugs (impair erection).

Management
1. Correction of any organic etiological factor-endocrine, vascular, , metabolic, neurological disease, local lesion or alcoholism.
2. Psychotherapy and counselling: emphasis must be on communication between the partners and not on achieving an erection.
3. Approach recommended (masters and Johnson) in stages:(a) the stimulation of each partner's body by the other to learn how best to arouse the other genitals must not be touched at this stage. (b) when both partners are non-anxious in the first situation, genital stimulation is introduced. (c) commencing intercourse with the husband lying supine.
4. Androgen therapy if evidence (clinical or biochemical) of hypogonadism:
Note: testosterone treatment is contraindicated in men who want to have children because it tends to suppress sperm production. Also it tends to precipitate cancer of the prostate in the elderly. Androgen replacement may enhance libido without improving potency. Sex tonics or aphrodisiacs have little or no effect on sexual function except perhaps by way of suggestion.
5. Other hormones: if increase male sexuality: certain exercises can strengthen muscles of the pelvis, in particular those surrounding the penis. They increase the blood circulation in genital area and may enhance quality of erection. The person is advised to check his flow of urine when urinating and then start again repeating this about 5 times. This can be done at least 3 times a day. Once this is learnt, it can be carried out even without urinating.

Premature ejaculation.
1. Anesthetic ointment rubbed into the head of the penis.
2. Wearing a condom. Benzocaine condoms can be used.
3. Fixing the mind during intercourse on non-sexual activity such as business matter or sports.
4. Deep breathing and conscious relaxation of genitals may be tried.
5. Alcohol in small quantity may like a depressant and prolong Ejaculation.
6. Preparing wife by sexual stimulation while keeping genitals away from touch helps in increasing control and time of sexual activity.
7. Ejaculatory control-(i) first phase


(a) without a partner

First step: the man is advised to masturbate himself by to and for of the hand. He must stop before the stage of ejaculation and allow the erection to decline. This should be repeated a number of times of different occasions before going on to the next step.

Second step: (b) ejaculatory control with the partner: the man lies down on his back. The female sits between his legs and masturbates him. When he reaches the stage of ejaculation, he asks her to stop and the erection is allowed to subside. When the sexual excitement has receded sufficiently he asks the partner to repeat the same procedure. This should be done for a total of at least 15 to 20 minutes. After this, the man should ejaculation after reaching the stage of orgasm. When he has attained sufficient confidence of ejaculatory control for about 15 minutes, he goes on to (ii) second phase - this involves intravaginal containment using the stop-start technique or removal and squeezing of the penis.

1. Stop-start technique - at first the exercise of step 1 is begun and when erection is achieved, the female assumes female above position and places the penis in the vagina. She remains motionless. When the man has the feeling of impending ejaculation, he asks her to dismount. The man may go to toilet or keep lying till the excitement subsides. This should be repeated for about 15 minutes before going on to the next stage the procedure is the same as above but this time the female moves to and gradually instead of remaining motionless. When the man feels the ejaculatory urge, he asks her to stop. When the excitation has subsides, the process is repeated. Once the ejaculatory control is achieved by the above methods, it would be possible to have sexual intercourse in any position.


2. Squeeze technique - this is a modification of stop start technique in that instead of letting go the penis at the feeling of ejaculation, partner holds the penis between the index and middle fingers. The thump is placed on the frenulum and the two fingers on the opposite side of the coronal ridge. The partner squeezes the thump and fingers for 4 seconds. The pressure makes the man to lose his erection. After doing this 2-3 times the female adopts the woman above position, and inserts the penis into the vagina. The no motion technique and later the to and motion technique is than adopted as described above.

Note: in men with concomitant ed. The erectile dysfunction should be treated first.

Retarded or absent ejaculation - in less common and has several possible organic causes. However it may be caused entirely by psychological or emotional factors that are amenable to behavior therapy or individual psychotherapy.

Retrograde ejaculation - is due to bladder neck incompetence. It invariably occurs after transurethral resection of the prostate and may occur in diabetic autonomic neuropathy or para-aortic lymphadenectomy.

Delayed ejaculations or failed emission can occur due to spinal trauma and surgical procedures such as radical prostatectomy, proctocolectomy or para-aortic lymphadenopathy.

Inhibited ejaculation is the psychological variant of delayed ejaculation. Ejaculation usually occurs rapidly with solitary masturbation but not during intercourse. A variety of psychological factors may be responsible including fear of pregnancy, guilt and depressed or repressed hostility towards the partner.

Painful ejaculation can be caused by acute genitourinary infection, particularly acute prostatitis or seminal vesiculitis. It may also have a psychogenic basis. Infection can be treated with antibiotic, nsaids prostatic decongestants eg. Bromhexine and if indicated prostatic massage.

SEXUAL PROBLEMS ARISE

Sex is a natural function like digestion and like digestion can be upset by a whole variety of problems, usually not involving physical factors.

We all accept that faulty eating, stressed, anxious or in a bad mood can lead to complaints like loss of appetite, indigestion, constipation even though the body is basically healthy. We also know that if we eat normally, our digestive system works naturally and we enjoy our food.

In a similar way if sex is allowed to happen naturally and in a relaxed way our bodies will respond normally without any conscious effort on our part.

Common examples of problems

1. Misunderstanding or lack of information about sex – how to act

2. Bad feelings about sex or its consequences

Fear of pregnancy or pain

Fear of failing to perform normally or well, Guilt (Believing that sex is wrong)

Disgust (feeling that sex is dirty or messy)

3. Problems in relationship

Feeling angry, bitter or resentful towards your partner

Feeling insecure or frightened of being hurt

4. Bad feelings about yourself

Feeling depressed, worthless, not deserving pleasure

Feeling unattractive, unhappy with your body

5. Unsuitable circumstances

Feeling too tired, or hurried, or preoccupied with other things

6. Alcohol, some drugs or medicaments

7. Being in generally poor condition

How Do These Problems Affect Sexual response?

It is well known that sexual problems are caused by inhibition of the natural response, but not understood that it is usually performance anxiety that keeps the problem going.

Basic principles

1. Improve communication within the relationship.

2. Correct ignorance and misunderstanding about sex.

3. Allow yourself to relax and enjoy your natural responses.

Communication Guidelines

It is never too late to learn new ways of communication, improved communication is essential if a sexual problem is to be resolved.

Here are some basic principles of communication:

1. Aim to communicate with each other as two adults. In many marriages the husband communicates like a father and wife like a child------ and in others the wife behaves like a mother to her husband who reacts like a son. Such ‘parent and child’ relationships do not promote or encourage healthy adult sexual responsiveness.

2. Encourage your partner to use term ‘I’ and allow him or her express feelings of hurt without your reacting too violently and discouraging self expression.

3. Praise and encouragement work better than criticism. SEXUAL RESPONSES

These responses can result from all sorts of factors from fantasies, from seeing an attractive person, hearing nice music, masturbating, touching, kissing and caressing each other and from full intercourse.

These bodily responses usually go through three phases:

1. Arousal or excitement.

2. Climax or orgasm.

3. Resolution or returning to where we started.

1)AROUSAL PHASE

In the man, erection of the penis may be the first thing to happen. As arousal is increased, he feels more excited, In the women, slight swelling of the outer lips of the vagina and increased lubrication inside the vagina occur at an early state, as with the man’s erection.

2)CLIMAX PHASE

As arousal increases, the man reaches a point of no return after which he will ejaculate, whatever happens. The fluid ejaculate can vary in quantity but is usually about a teaspoonful. It is perfectly clean and contains good things like sugar to feed the sperm. As he ejaculates so he experiences a climax, a sudden buildup and release of tension followed by a feeling of well being and calm

The women may or may not come to orgasm or climax. She does not ejaculate like the man but she experiences a similar buildup and release of sexual tension-rather like a sneeze, though much more enjoyable. It lasts approximately 5-15 seconds. There are usually contractions of the vagina wall and surrounding muscle which the woman may be aware of. Most woman need caressing of the clitoris before they reach a climax.

3)RESOLUTION PHASE

This is the after the storm when the body settles down and both partners feel fulfilled and calm, often pleasantly sleepy and relaxed. In the woman, the feeling of fullness or congestion in her pelvis and her general sense of excitement may take longer to settle, particularly if she has not experienced a climax.

GUIDELINES TO HELP IMPROVE YOUR LOVEMAKING

Stage One

The equally important for improving sexual relationships.

If you are doing the caressing, assert yourself. Touch your partner where you want to touch in a way that is nice for you and for as long as you wish. It is nice to touch and feel close to your partner.

Stage Two

This stage is similar to stage one. Each session has two parts with one person starting to caress first in a pleasing for him or her; Protecting – if you don’t like what’s being done, move your partner.

Stage three:

Sensate focus with genital contact.

Exactly the same basic principles apply for stage of the programmer.

1. intercourse persists but now genital contact with the hands and/or mouth is permitted.

2. Each session is in two parts as before: A caressing B-then B caressing A.

3. As before, alternate partners initiate the session, touching in the way he or she wants to touch, with the partner protecting himself or herself from anything that is disliked and guiding the hand to show what is particularly pleasurable

4. Do not concentrate solely on the genital regions spend as much time before on general body caressing and kissing as well.

5. The use of body lotion or KY jelly can enhance the pleasure both to the caresser and the caressed, especially when touching genital areas.

6. The only goal is to be able to relax and enjoy what is happening. Check for spectatoring and learn ways of getting back to being fully relaxed and involved.

7. The partner being caressed may not become aroused and many or may not ejaculate or reach a climax. The response will vary from session to session and this is normal. Do not aim for a climax or orgasm but if it does occur it does not matter and need not mean the end of a session.

8. If premature ejaculation is a problem, you will be given additional suggestions on deal with this.

Stage Four

Sensate focus with genital contact and simultaneous caressing

1. Sex is a natural response if you let it happen.

2. Be on guard for spectating.

Stage five

Vaginal containment

Once sensate focus with genital contact is going well and the male partner is getting reasonably firm erection you are ready to enter

allow the freedom to experience sensations physical contact with each other without performance anxiety, failure to achieve a particular goal.

After a period of mutual caressing, involving the genital area, when you feel that you are ready, and when you feel your partner has a reasonably firm erection, you are invite the penis into your vagina……..

If you wish, you can then resume genital caressing and perhaps repeat the process over again. Remember that you are both to concentrate on the sensations you are feeling from your genital region and relax and not start any thrusting movements.

Initially you should only allow vaginal containment for a brief period. The period of containment can be gradually lengthened on each occasion.


Stage six

Vaginal containment with movement

You should be touching and being touched in a way that is pleasant for both of you and with no particular performance in mind other than of giving and receiving pleasure.

As before, start with mutual caressing involving both non-genital and genital areas in a way that feels good for both of you and although the man may have erection fairly quickly, it is important that both of you should feel aroused and receptive before vaginal entry takes place.

After a period of vaginal containment, you may try some limited thrusting movements to see how this affects your sensations. Only do this briefly to stage with but if you are enjoying the feelings this produces, allow the movement to continued.

The movements of intercourse feel different In the different positions you can try and it is important to experiment to find ways that suit you both. This is normal for both sexes. Many women find that they respond better at particular time of the month. Many women enjoy clitoral stimulation in additional to the thrusting of the penis and most find that they reach a climax most comfortably and pleasurably in this manner.

PREMATURE EJACULATION

This problem can be first tacked during stage. As mentioned earlier every man has a point of no return after which he cannot avoid ejaculation. During your partner’s caressing of your penis, you may feel yourself getting aroused to such a degree that you can predict that you will ejaculate shortly. This is a learning process which every male has to undertake at some stage in his life and it is never too late to learn control of ejaculation. It will, however, take time and practice and will require the full understanding and cooperation of your partner.

If you have difficulty in gaining control using this method take time because you are changing what is probably a long-established pattern then you can try the squeeze technique.


SEX THERAPY

Sex therapy is based on behavior therapy. It is a type of re-educative therapy. The fundamental of behavior therapy is that all the behaviors are learned, even the maladaptive behaviors. The behavior therapist helps the client to unlearn the unadaptive behavior and replaces it with newly learned adaptive behavior. The aims of behavior therapy are primarily educational and techniques facilitate improved self control.

From amongst several techniques that are used in behavior therapy, ‘systematic desensitization technique’ is used in sex therapy. Prior to 1970 sexual dysfunctions were managed by psychiatrists. After 1970, the masters and Johnson model of sex therapy made it possible to treat sexual dysfunction by psychologists, social workers, nurses, counsellors, and medical doctors.

Their approach included :

1. Instead of treating the affected individual, the couple is treated. It is the relationship that is affected. This strategy provides an opportunity to gain the co-operation and understanding of both the partners in overcoming the problem.

2. Two therapist-a man and a woman work together as a team. This gives each partner a same sex therapist to whom he or she can relate more easily.

3. Masters and Johnson recognized that it was important to identify organic conditions that might require medical or surgical treatment instead of sex therapy.

4. They also found that explaining the anatomy and physiology of sexual response to the clients often had important therapeutic benefits.

5. To individualize the therapy so as to meet the specific needs of each couple.

6. The therapist must avoid imposing his own values on the client.

7. the fear of performance and ‘spectatoring’ are often central to the cases of sexual dysfunction. The pressure of performance is removed initially by banning sexual contact. Couples are then helped to rediscover the sensual pleasures of touching and being touched without the goal of particular sexual response(Sensate Focus Exercise).

8. Blaming each other for the sexual problem is discouraged.

9. When a couple’s relationship improves outside the bedroom, it is apt to have positive results in the bedroom too.

Basis :

Sexual response is the function of Autonomic nervous system and is a physiological change when effective sexual stimuli are present , and a person is psychologically prepared to respond to them.

All the sense organs are to be used to create a situation conducive to sexual response . (touch is most important).

Systematic Desensitization : A mode of psychotherapy where all the anxiety provoking stimuli are arranged in an ascending level, and the client is exposed to, one by one, Both the partners are to be involved.

Relaxation: Deep breathing, deep muscle relaxation and pleasant imagery are incorporated.

Reassurance.

Stages :

1. Sensate focus

2. Woman superior position

3. Lateral position

4. Men superior position

Format :

No rigid format

Variations in time, frequency and structure depending upon the dysfunction, the patient and the therapist.

Results:

Not as definite as in pharmacotherapy

As you shall sow and water, so you shall reap

A skilled and knowledgeable therapist is like a good seed

Client’s receptive min is like fertile soil

Compliance and cooperation by wife is like watering by gardner

When all the three factors combine, the results are good.

When sex therapy works, it does wonders and results are unparalleled for that particular couple.

Contraindications:

Severe Depression

Active psychopathology

Substance abuse

illness

Hostility in couple-interaction.

MASTURBATION

Definition

Masturbation is deliberating self-stimulation, which effects sexual arousal.

Males:

About 94 percent males are involved in masturbation which leads to orgasm. Some individual does not masturbate because they do not have sufficient sex drive. There are some slow reacting individuals who find it impossible to attend orgasm in masturbation.

Masturbation provides the chief source outlet in early adolescence.

There are few males who masturbate only once or twice in their lives; and other are who have frequencies that may average seven to twenty or more in a week for long periods of years. There are few males who are still masturbating at 75 yesrs of age.

Masturbation after marriage is confined to those periods when wife is away. Sometimes masturbation is product of fact that wife does not want sexual relations as frequent as male would like to have, or that periods of pregnancy, menstruation or illness interfere with regular intercourse.

There are definite taboos against masturbation, with the explanation that it will drive you crazy, give pimples, make one weak, bend the penis, cause impotence, affect vision or do some other harm, more often masturbation is simply rejected because it is considered unnatural.

Masturbation usually does not continue for more than a minute or two. Some individuals achieve orgasm in 10-20 seconds. In males masturbatory techniques are largely manual. Some boys masturbate by moving penis against a bed or against some other object. All males experience sexual fantasies during masturbation. Some use erotic pictures for stimulation during masturbation. Many individuals find some additional stimulation in observing their own genitalia.

Boys learn to masturbate through friends or literature. Frequency of masturbation is inversely proportional to nocturnal emission. Males with high frequency of masturbation may have low rate of nocturnal emission and vice versa.

Masturbatory activity does not do any harm to the individual. It is the conflict, fearful social disgrace, guilt-feeling that harms. It ultimate sexual capacities, occasionally attempting suicide. On the other hand masturbation provides a regular sexual outlet which alleviates nervous tension and body live a balanced life. There is no evidence to prove that masturbation interferes with high mental physical or moral efficiency.

There is tremendous individual variation in the capacity to engage in this sexual activity without undue fatigue. Therefore it is not possible to define excess. Secondary the Autonomic Nervous system has control over the sexual activity. Like salivation or perspiration the response is adequate according to the simulation.

For most males, coitus is primary and masturbation is secondary. For young people masturbation is the chief source of sexual outlet up to the time of marriage. Masturbation is an alternative for coitus.

Females:

Masturbation is the one activity in which the second largest number of females engages both before and after marriage. In coitus, a female may be delayed or completed prevented from the most specific and quickest means of achieving orgasm.

Masturbation has not been as frequent and regular a source of sexual outlet for females as it has been for the males. Many males are inclined to overestimate the incidence and frequencies of masturbation among females. In females, masturbation may or may not be pursued to point of orgasm, and it may not have orgasm as its objective. Erotic satisfaction and some release from erotic tension are its objective.

Most of the females discover how to masturbation as a result of the exploration of their own genitalia. Females do not discuss their sexual experience in the open way as males do. Many females do not begin masturbation till the age of thirty while most of males begin masturbation after the onset of adolescence. About 94 percent of males masturbate, while only 62 percent of females masturbate a sometime in the course of their lives.

There is higher incidence of masturbation among the older females since there is an actual increase in erotic responsiveness at older ages, reduction of inhibition and they might have learnt by experience of obtaining similar satisfaction though self –masturbation. This is in contrast to males who reach their peak incidence in teenage. In elderly females as the estrogen level falls, The sex stimulating testosterone hormone (produced by suprarenals) level increases.

Some women who fail to reach orgasm in coitus are then stimulated manually by their husbands, or they masturbate themselves until they reach orgasm. Some of the married females , on the other hand, confine their masturbation to period when their husbands are away from home.

The frequency of masturbation in single females is once in every two to three weeks and in married females it is once in a month. There is individual variation in any type of sexual activity. There are some females who regularly masturbate to the point of orgasm several times in immediate succession as often as 10 to 20 and even more times within single hour. Many women often fear that masturbation would do them physical harm, and consider it morally wrong and biologically abnormal. The scientific truth is that masturbation does not harm in any way.

Females choose more types of technique of masturbation than males do. Females most frequently involve in manipulation of clitoris is and /or labia minor. Clitoris is a small bud-like structure-a homologue of male penis, which is located at the upper end of vertical cleft of female genitalia. Labia minor are the paired inner lips and represent body of the penis in male. In masturbation the females usually moves a finger gently and rhythmically over the sensitive areas, or applies rhythmic or steady pressure with several of her fingers or with her whole hand.

Frequently one or two fingers are moved forward between the labia in manner, which brings each stroke against the clitoris. Sometimes the labia are gently and rhythmically pulled to stimulate them. Because these structures are attached to the clitoris. She simultaneously stimulates the organ. Occasionally, her heel or some other object is used to press on the sensitive areas. Clitoris and labia minor are the portions of genitalia which are best supplied with the end organs of touch. Females do not masturbate by penetration of vagina, since walls of vagina are practically without nerves, although there may be some sensory nerves close to the entrance of vagina. Deep vaginal penetration is men’s fantasy and is not the sexual need of women. Major lips of female genitals are involved in masturbation much less frequently. The above mentioned techniques are used by 84 percent of females; while 10 percent of females masturbate by crossing their legs and pressing them to exert steady and rhythmic pressure on the whole genital area. Such pressure affects the clitoris, labia minora and majora. During masturbation the female may lie face down or with her knees drawn against her belly. Her buttocks may then move rhythmically forward and against each other. In face down position the female presses her genitalia the bed or against the pillow, which is placed under her pelvis or between her pelvis or between her thighs. Thus the clitoris and other portions of genitals are stimulated. The speed with which the orgasm is achieved through the use of such technique is equal or superior to that with which orgasm may be achieved by any other method.

Nipples of the breast are erotically sensitive in nearly half of the females. The females may stimulate them with her hand simultaneously while manipulating her genitals. Breast stimulation alone is not sufficient to effect orgasm.

In connection with the above-mentioned techniques of masturbation, most of the females make only occasional vaginal insertion by their finger. Females do not use dildoes as men imagine.

Unlike males, females do not fantasize about coitus while masturbating. Females masturbate for the sake of immediate satisfaction and as a means of resolving physiologic disturbances, which arise when they are aroused sexually. After masturbation, they function more efficiently in their everyday affairs.

Some females believe that pimples, mental dullness, poor posture, stomach upsets, ovarian pains, infections, weak eyes, headaches and several ailments are due to masturbation. Physicians have not been able to relate these disturbances to masturbation. Thus, masturbation is a safe sexual outlet for females as well as for males. Fatigue after masturbation is like that which follows after any other activity utilizing energy. They recover from exhaustion within a matter of minutes or after a night of sleep.

Sex researches have come to a conclusion that the tremendous amount of damage done is due to the worry over masturbation and attempts to abstain from this activity, rather than the activity itself. When no guilt, anxiety or fear is involved, the physical satisfaction due to sexual activity leaves an individual well-adjusted psychologically. It has been observed that premarital experience in masturbation actually contributes to the female’s better capacity to respond during coitus after her marriage. It has been experienced by many women that premenstrual pain is relieved after masturbation. The reason is that as a result of orgasm achieved through masturbation, the blood flow in the genital area is diverted to the rest of the body and the congestion of blood that causes pain is relieved. It has also been observed that if a female gets orgasm during coitus chances of pregnancy increase since the mouth of the uterus opens wider, allowing more sperms flowing in.

Sexology course for medical practitioners

Normal Sexuality
Normal person's sexual attraction to another, the passion and love that follows are deeply associated with the intimate happiness which is determined by anatomy, physiology, living style, relationship with the other person and developmental experience throughout the life Normal sexual behavior brings pleasure to oneself and one's partner, involves stimulation of the primary sex organs including coitus; it is devoid of inappropriate feelings of guilt or anxiety and is not compulsive.
Sexual Dysfunction
The essential feature of the sexual dysfunctions is inhibition in one or more of the phases, including disturbance in the subjective sense of pleasure or desire or in the objective performance. Either type of disturbance can occur alone or in combination. They can be lifelong or acquired, generalized or situational, and result from psychological factors, physiological factors, or combined factors. Sexual disorders can lead to or result from relational problems, and patients invariably develop an increasing fear of failure and self-consciousness about their sexual performance. Sexual dysfunctions are frequently associated with other mental disorders, such as depressive disorders, anxiety disorders and personality disorders etc. Sexual function can be adversely affected by stress of any kind, by emotional disorders, or by ignorance of sexual function and physiology. The dysfunction may be lifelong or acquired that is, it can develop after a period of normal functioning. The dysfunction may be generalized or limited to a specific partner or a certain situation.

What is Sex Therapy Certification?

Professional training in sex therapy was established in 1970 with the publication of Masters and Johnson’s book “Treating Sexual Inadequacy.”


Many medical and mental health experts have since written extensively in the sexual field, and have defined specific behavioral and cognitive approaches across a wide range of disciplines. Sex therapy is a specialized psychotherapeutic modality often utilizing a short term approach.

The sex therapist deals openly and directly with sensitive issues. Clinicians who treat individuals or couples of any orientation, families of any configuration, persons dealing with gender issues, or victims and perpetrators of sexual abuse gain expertise practicing specific sex therapy techniques.

COUNSELING

Many people think of counselling as giving or offering solutions to the problem. However, counselling is neither of these. When the client comes for help with a problem he has to change something in himself to solve it. This may be a change of attitude, of perception of self or of others, of habit or a change of behavior. Counselling is teaching the client ‘life-coping skills’.

Goals :

To help reduce the level of anxiety when confronted with a stressful situation

To help bring about a meaningful change in the client and function more successfully

To facilitate client’s decision-making process

To help client to plan his solution for his problem using his value system

Essentials:

Listen actively, and question effectively

Accept the client , respect him, his ideas and feelings

Show empathy ( recongnition of another’s feelings)and warmth

Be honest and non-judgmental

Counter the myths and misconceptions

Maintain confidentiality

Counselling can never be hurried (average time: 30 min)

Hold the counselling session in a private place.

PLISSIT Model :

Sexual problem, where there is no organic cause, can be effectively tackled by the use of PLISSIT madel of sexual counseling. This is behavior treatment for sexual problems. This is based on the belief that human behavior is a learned process. Maladaptive behavior can be unlearned and positive behavior can be substituted.

PLISSIT Model was formulated john anon in 1976 .this model suggests therapeutic interventions 4 levels:

Treatment level I P: Permission:

The counsellor asks questions about client sexuality e.g. sexual thoughts , fantasies, dreams, feeling, sexual arousal, masturbation, nocturnal emission etc. The counsellor assures the client that he is O.K. and to continue doing what has been doing.

Level II : LI: limited information ;

At this level the counsellor explains why the client is O.K. the counselor counters myths and misconceptions related to his sexual problem and provides scientific information on the concerned topic e.g. masturbation, oral sex, breast and genital size during menstruation/ pregnancy etc.

Level III : SS : Specific Suggestion:

At this level the counsellor provides alternative explanation for the problem (learning & conditioning) and offers specific suggestions to the client to manage the sexual situation e.g. specific coital position during pregnancy; sensate focus; kegel exercise.

Level IV: IT: Intensive therapy:

At this level analysis and treatment of attitude, reinforcing and discriminative function of stimuli that elicit inappropriate emotional responses are required. Paraphilia, marital discord, substance abuse required this level of therapeutic intervention.

Additional instruction to the client :

1. Tobacco : To stop smoking or any other use of tabacco. Nicotine in tabacco causes vasoconstriction and enhances atherosclerosis.

2. Balance diet : To avoid excessive consumption of fats, sugars and salts and to take plenty of proteins ( egg white, pulses, fish, skimmed milk) , green vegetables and fruits. Udid contains natural testosterone and soyabean contains natural estrogen. Idli made from udid and rice is a nutritious food item. Vegetarian and non-vegetarian diet are equally good provided extra milk is consumed by vegetarians. Balance diet provides enough energy for sexual activity.

3. Exercise : The aim is to achieve physical fitness and not the body building. Exercise should be done on empty stomach. It should be gradual. If pain occurs in the chest during the exercise, it should be discontinued immediately and seek physician’s advice.

The four components of physical fitness are:

(a) Cardio-respiratory efficiency : Running, swimming, fast walking, cycling or spot running, ,minimum for 20 min and at least for 5 days in a week. The pulse rate should be 220- age *4/5

(b) Flexibility : Yogasnas. Each asana should be done for 2 min. Difficult and painful asanas need not be done.

(c) Endurance : sit ups, push ups

(d) Strength: Wait lifting, bulwarker.

4. Body weight: Excessive body weight may cause difficulties in the sexual activities. Optimum body weight is calculated by the formula of body mass Index (BMI)

B.M.I. – Body weight in kg/ ( Height in meters) 2

The resultant Should be 25.

Both, Dieting and exercise are necessary for the weight reduction.
