There's no shame in consulting a sexologist

  • By Team TDO

Some couples or individuals find it beneath their dignity to even step into a sexologist’s clinic. The common apprehensions are: ‘What if someone sees me there?’or ‘I have a reputation to protect’ or ‘Word will get around that I have a problem’. The list is endless.

Some of the apprehensions are perhaps valid. However, getting over these apprehensions could well spell the difference between life and death. For some people, there is little difference between sexual disease and sex therapy. This is not true. A sex and VD consultant or skin specialist can detect and treat sexual diseases. A sexologist, on the other hand, treats marital and sex related problems.

Who is a sexologist?

A sexologist is a qualified medical practitioner who offers facilitation to individuals or couples on myriad marital issues, relationship and all problems related to human sexuality or behavior.

Due to the changing dynamics of work, home and family today, there are a lot of couples out there who are in a state of ‘sexual despair’. Consulting a sexologist can help identify the problem and then help you take steps to address those issues. There may be issues like incompatibility, frigidity, frequency or plain disinterest in sex, which can be solved by a good sexologist.

It is not unknown for couples to even go in for pre-marital counseling. A sexologist can indeed be the ‘Best Man’ towards marital harmony and blissful sex relations. For individuals also, the sexologist could be of great help in rendering invaluable advice on all aspects of sexual behaviour.
