Sexual satisfaction and frustration
Sexual satisfaction is not just physical pleasure, nor is it simply the absence of dissatisfaction or problems. Rather, sexual satisfaction involves the overall feeling we are left with after considering the positive and negative aspects of our sexual relationships. But negative attitudes about bodies, genitals and sexuality can get in the way of sexual satisfaction.
Sexual frustration can also happen when there is a disparity between the sexual needs of both partners. For instance, one sexual partner may think that their sexual life is adequate, while the other may think that their sexual life is lacking.
Side effects of sexual frustration are:
- Mood swings
- Low self esteem
- Weight gain
- Short attention span
- Discords in relationship
- Poor work performance
- Poor social performance
If you are sexually frustrated, there may be a solution within reach. Do not settle. Sexual enjoyment and fulfillment is your right and your responsibility.
Ways to get Sexual Satisfaction
Communication: Talk about What You Want
Sharing wants, needs and most torrid sexual desires can be intimidating. Talking about what you’d like to do and have done to you can help to increase your sexual satisfaction.
Foreplay is integral part of sexual activity, which should never be kept away during the pursuit. Your attempts will help in arousal of your partner and chances of better sex are decent.
You need to learn sexual skills. No one is born with these and no one can expect satisfaction without skills.
Be Adventurous: Take Sex out of the Bedroom
Try sex in the shower, in the back seat of your car, or against the kitchen counter. Go skinny dipping in a secluded spot outside. Sexual spontaneity and the excitement of sex in a new place can give you an adrenaline rush, intensifying the experience.
Look Sexy, Feel Sexy
A negative body image can distract you from having satisfying sexual experiences. Try practicing yoga, walking or swimming for 30 minutes every day to see positive effects on your body and on those negative thoughts.
