The Psychology of Impotence
by Chris Morrow

However, as the sole pillar in a faltering relationship, it can be the weak link. In between these two standards is an entire universe of emotions and experiences that are unique to each couple. 

Think about your feelings regarding your relationship: 

How happy are you with your partner?
How satisfied are you with your sex life?
How satisfied is your partner with your sex life?
Is your relationship based on friendship, mutual understanding and trust, family commitments, or sex?
How well do you both communicate your feelings about all aspects of your relationship?

Remember that a mutually satisfying sex life is an integral part of a healthy relationship.

When the physical aspects of your relationship are on track, you create an experience that is greater than the two of you, and one that adds to your overall mental and physical contentment.

Identifying Sexual Problems and Anxieties

Close examination of your sexual partnership with a view to solving any problems that exist is an extremely delicate matter.

Being able to openly and candidly express the things that make you uncomfortable, cause embarrassment, or deny you pleasure requires a great deal of tact and diplomacy.

Communicating your desires, the things that bring you pleasure and what it takes to bring you sexual fulfillment can be equally embarrassing to express.

Good communication is the key to a happy and healthy sexual relationship.

Being able to speak frankly about what makes you happy and what doesn't requires courage and empathy - the ability to say how you feel and what you want without upsetting your partner or causing them to go on the defensive.

In many cases, couples who have experienced communication problems often seek the help of a mediator or sex therapist to help them clearly and objectively state their case. 

Having a third party present in such situations can help diffuse tension and ease any difficulties partners may have communicating their feelings to each other. Some of the situations where sexual problems can arise include:

When one partner desires sex more frequently than the other. 

When there is dissatisfaction or a lack of pleasure in your sex life.
When one partner feels they give more than they receive.
When there is guilt, fear or anxiety about sexual activity.

When your preferred sexual activities are at odds with each other. 

The psychology of impotence is about sometimes stepping into uncharted waters. 

It requires confidence and the experience that comes with learning, understanding and embracing your own sexual desires and those of your partner.

We're not all mind readers, so communicating openly and honestly, and defining what satisfies you sexually is the first step. 

Listening to your partner in an equally honest and open manner is just as important.

Empathy, patience, perseverance and compromise are the markers of a highly successful sexual relationship.
