By Jennifer Benjamin Miss that erotic charge you had when your love was brand-new?Reboot in the bedroom with these tips for turning up the heat on your old flame.Long-term love brings all sorts of advantages: a shared history with the guy you love most, a partner who you know will always have your back, and a warm, satisfying sexual connection that can only come from years of intimacy.
So seeing a sex therapist is like going to a gynecologist for gynecological problems rather than to a family practice physician. That isn't to say that one couldn't get good help from a non-sex therapist for a sexual issue, it's just that the likelihood might be a bit less.
Most sex therapists have a particular awareness of sexuality that rises above personal opinion or personal experiences.
We usually have several choices of ways to treat a particular issue when someone presents it.
We tailor our treatment to the person(s) before us.
For years, I have had a practice full of couples for whom that simply was not true.
Sex therapists also tend to have much greater than average knowledge about the physiological processes that are a part of human sexuality.
We tend to work collaboratively with physicians to address the entirety of the causes of sexual concerns.
We are not a "bigger hammer" there to coerce a person who wants less sex into wanting more.
There is a sexological method to treating sexual issues.
With the exception of when separate sexual surrogate therapists are added (in a very small number of cases), sex therapy is completely talk therapy.
Sex therapy views sexual issues as being resolved by specifically addressing them, rather than by the assumption that when the individuals in a relationship work out the relationship issues, the sex will just fall into place.
