Erectile dysfunction, or impotence, is the inability of a man to develop or maintain an erection sufficient for his sexual satisfaction or that of his partner. The most to aging and include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, low serum testosterone, or side affects of medication such as anti-depressants.
Most men experience erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives, due to situational stressors or fatigue, and will be psychologically unaffected by it. However, due to expectations about male sexual function, especially if self-worth and self-image of masculinity are deeply connected to sexual performance, some men may react to an episode of impotence by becoming more anxious, which results in further sexual problems and increased “performance anxiety“.
Depression, stress, and anxiety disorders are the most common causes of psychological erectile dysfunction. Other psychological causes may include a history of sexual abuse or emotional trauma, guilt and shame, grief, or relationship problems.
A sex therapist will evaluate and treat the psychological aspects of erectile dysfunction by assessing patterns of negative thoughts and behaviors and evaluating potential relationship problems associated with erection problems. Sex therapy also provides resources on sexual skills or techniques, reducing performance anxiety, support for relationship problems, and evaluating unrealistic sexual attitudes.
