Sexual Aversion Defined by Sex Therapy in Philadelphia. Call today to schedule a consultation.

Most people are not in the mood for sex twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. Sometimes people get sick, tired, stressed out or simply don’t have time. This is normal. However, if the feeling of not wanting sex persists, you might be experiencing a sexual aversion.
Sexual aversions can occur when:

  • You are with the a person for the wrong reasons (e.g. obligation)
  • You and your significant other are fighting and you do not feel emotionally close
  • You dislike the way the person smells or looks
  • You have trouble teaching a person how you like to be touched
  • You are experiencing flashbacks of sexual trauma
  • You don't feel sexual

If you are experiencing a sexual aversion help is available. There are therapists that specialize in helping people grapple with their sexual aversion. Sex therapists can help you learn how to work thru this condition. Depending upon your relationship, coming as a couple can be helpful. Most sexual aversions can be worked through with good communication skills. What you may soon realize is that what you thought was a sexual aversion, was simply you and your partner forgetting the importance of seduction. Without seduction, people often don’t feel sexy, or in the mood. With that being said, your sexual aversion may be a lot more than your partner simply forgetting about seduction in which case we strongly encourage working with a couples therapist trained in overcoming sexual issues.
