Sexual dysfunction is the term for when you have difficulty with any stage of ‘normal’ sexual activity, such as: 

  • arousal or desire
  • physical performance
  • physical pleasure or sensation (including pain)
  • the ability to orgasm

People with sexual dysfunction are often unable to fully enjoy sex. Most people experience   sexual problems some stage in their lives and having issues with your sex life can be very upsetting. However, there are a wide range of treatment options available, and most people will be able to overcome their problems.

Your experiences are only ‘dysfunctional’ if you consider them a problem.
