Females can be sex addicts too!

A recent article in Marie Claire Magazine talks about how sex addiction affects females.  I believe women get caught in a neuro-hormonal roller coaster where they chase sex for love hoping to meet “the one.” Take a look at this well-written article. Female sex Addiction Treatment Los Angeles

Ways women orgasm

Are you interested in the ways women orgasm?  If so, why?  If not, why not?!

There are a lot of myths about female orgasm and little understanding about female sexual arousal.  The truth is that all women are NOT created equal in this area.  Each woman has distinctly different patterns of arousal and needs to understand her own body so that she can bring herself to orgasm.  Once a woman is familiar with her sexuality in intimate ways and what her sexual preferences are, she can then communicate them to her partner.

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

Do you talk about sex?

When sex is hot and heavy with your partner, there’s nothing to talk about.  Over time your sexual attraction, libido, desires, and interests change.  If you don’t talk about it sooner rather than later, you could find yourself in martial gridlock. Sex Therapy Los Angeles
