Hating Viagra

Okay, I’m sure some people have good reasons for taking this drug. I’m just not so into them. And as counter-intuitive as this may sound, I’m NOT getting into why men have erectile dysfunction on this post. For more on sexual dysfunction look at Lessons from a Family Therapist

Suffice it to say that sexual dysfunction by definition is a couple problem.

It is a problem that surely cuts deep, hurts both partners, may have roots in family attitudes, religious upbringing, sexual traumas, lack of education about the human body and what it can and can not do and when, and may be associated with 25% of all divorces in the United States.

So why don’t you guys just take an expensive pharmacological treatment and FIX IT?!?!

Now, doesn’t that sound silly? There, I’ve said it. No more on this for a long time excep to say that:

Actually, 80% of couples with sexual dysfunction treated with behavioral-psychotherapy (by trained sex therapists) are cured.

Look up an AASECT provider in your home town. It's also something some marital therapists (like me) do for loads of money using NO surrogates. Surrogates may work on Boston Legal, but here in Chicago it's all about your marriage.

80 percent? Says who? My sex therapist colleagues agree that they can help about a third of the people who come to them by a lot, another third just a little, and the last third depart unchanged. Easiest to help: premature ejaculation. Most difficult? Desire differences in partners, and lack of attractiveness to spouse.
