Sex is the corner stone of romantic relationship and when one of the partners in a relationship experiences aversions to physical intimacy it causes severe strain and results in mental agony leading to depression and associated illness.

Sexual aversion

Sexual aversion in effect is an emotional reaction, albeit a negative one towards sex. It is a persistent dislike which makes the affected person to avoid sexual activity. On an average, it is found to be more prevalent in women than men. Nonetheless, it is common for the men to lose interest in sex in their women which results in their experiencing a negative feeling commonly termed as dysparenunic. What is important in this case is that it happens after an intercourse and the causes behind it may not be complex if one cares to investigate the factors behind experiencing such negative emotions. More often than not, it indicates just an inadequate knowledge in which case handling the problem is not difficult. On the other hand, if it takes place out of a dislike of one’s partner then it causes an alarm and needs expert intervention in the form of counseling at the hands of qualified medical professionals.

Some of the other causes of sexual aversion

• It is possible that sexual aversion is caused by a dislike towards sexual organs, whether it is penis, or vagina.
• Some negative stories which we have heard during our childhood might be showing off at the adulthood. It is possible the women might have been made to believe that sexual intercourse means pain and the fear of pain might be driving them away from sexual acts.
• Yet another cause could be in the form their being abused sexually.
These causes may show themselves in symptoms which could be seen in the dislike towards sex. Some of such instances may be outwardly manifested in the forms of
• A dislike when one of the partners attempts to touch, caress, or kiss the other partner.
• When the sexual organs are touched
• An unusual haste is shown

Treatment

The treatment in such cases assumes more than ordinary importance for the reason that those who are afflicted with such dislike suffer from low self-esteem. They also exhibit insecure attributes, get depressed. Some of the methods by which this problem could be handled are:
• Relaxation
• Communication
• Treating sex as a pleasurable activity and preparing oneself mentally by imagining that it is nature’s gift which also is linked to the desire of women to bear, deliver and nurture children and creating a sense of responsibility in men in bringing up their children.

Conclusions

Finally we need to remember it is possible for sexual aversion to be misdiagnosed. This is for the reason it may be masking some other problems as severe stress, fatigue or some diseases as diabetes playing havoc preventing human being to lead a normal life.
