Infidelity not a death sentence

Infidelity is a painful experience of betrayal and experts say it can be healed.

Imagine finding out that the person you trust the most has hurt you more than anyone.  People who have been betrayed express feeling like the world around them no longer makes any longer, that they can’t trust their instincts, and that every thing they once believed in has lost it’s value.

If you or someone you know has suffered from infidelity take time to get the help you need in order to heal.  Take a look at Janis Spring-Abrams book, “After the Affair” and read the article below. Sex Addiction Los Angeles

Cybersex addiction help

Cybersex can be as much of a threat to relationships as other infidelities are.  It’s important to set boundaries in your relationship and have explicit conversations about what is okay and what isn’t.

Talk about your life together. It’s crucial to talk to one another while in relationship and decide what is okay for you as a couple.  Discuss what infidelity means to you both and set those boundaries.  Talk to one another about whether it is okay for your partner to look at online pornography.  Do you want to be present when he/she does that or does it matter to you? How do you feel about your partner contacting other people via the web for cybersex? Make sure that you and your partner keep current about what does and doesn’t work for you.

Does cybersex take up a lot of time? One of the earmarks of any of addiction is a loss of time.  How much time do you spend on the Internet. Does it take time away from your erotic life with your partner?  Does it diminish your sexual desire for your partner?  If you are devoting more time to online sexual activities than your partner, then you are creating a breach to intimacy in your relationship and can also be  a sign of a cybersex addiction.

Secret, shaming, or abusive. If you become secretive about your on-line behavior then that is a sure sign that you have a problem. It doesn’t matter whether you are hiding what you are doing, how much time you are spending, the sites you are visiting, or the people you are talking to. If a behavior is secretive, shaming, or abusive to yourself or others – you have a problem.

Cybersex addiction can be treated.  For more information on how to get help with your problem, go to www.thecenterforhealthysex.com for resources and treatment options. Any form of sex addiction can be as devastating as drug/alcohol addictions. Get help now! Sex Addiction Los Angeles

What is dyspareunia?

Dyspareunia is the term that refers to any recurrent genital pain that women experience when they have sexual intercourse. Vaginal pain can develop into a cycle of anticipation of pain which can then cause physical tension that will maintain or increase pain. Women will then naturally avoid having sex in order to avoid the pain. Possible causes of dypsareunia include functional, medical, and psychological conditions. Sex Therapy Los Angeles
