I have just finished my last assignments for my mental health course this semester. Way to go smexy moi!
It is intensely hard work to work full time, maintain relationships and a social life and study. Is it worth it yes, am I uber tired, yes. Now where are those body slaves where I need them?
Studying mental health makes me wonder in an erotic sense, why there is not more study or literature let alone therapy to help consumers access assistance with it. It’s well known that common side effects of medication include sexual dysfunction, inability to orgasm and lowered sex drive. Yet, it’s barely spoken about or deemed as important in a holistic health level. There’s enough stigma with stating you need assistance or have a mental illness, that I think for many people they suffer quietly.
This is wrong…. Intimacy and love and physical affection is a human need. It helps both emotional states and physical immunity, plus it’s a pretty damn nice way to pass the time if I do say so myself.
It’s not all gloom and doom, there is increasing awareness and programs that cater for being gay, bi or queer and support groups to help with self identity, I just feel that all people suffer sexual crises, and it would be fascinating to hear the shared stories and be able to help alleviate some of the mystery and issues.
Has anxiety, depression or other fears stopped you enjoying sex or intimacy and if so…what do you think would help??
