When Sex is a Problem

Sex is as much a part of our lives as the air we breathe. At its best, sex can be a wonderful, joyous experience. Unfortunately, for some of us, sex may bring more pain than pleasure.

Consider the following:
Experts estimate that half of all marriages suffer from some form of sexual problem which leads to anger, hurt and frustration.

Thousands of women experience pain during sexual activity. Thousands more are frustrated that they have never experienced an orgasm.

Thousands of men are unable to attain or sustain erections. Thousands more suffer from premature ejaculation.

Both women and men experience concerns about their sexual attractiveness, the size and shape of their sexual organs and the adequacy of their sexual performance. They complain of a loss of sexual desire and an inability to be emotionally intimate with a partner.

Child sexual abuse continues to be a major public problem. Recent studies indicate that one quarter to one third of all children and teenagers - boys and girls alike - have been sexually abused by older children or adults.

For everyone who has been sexually abused there is an abuser. It's estimated that half of all child sexual abusers were themselves sexually abused as children.

Many of these people tell us they feel powerless to stop. They are deeply ashamed but don't know where to turn for help.

Thousands or women and men, girls and boys, wage a daily battle within themselves over their sexual and gender identity. They are women who feel they are really men... men who feel they are really women... children and adolescents who are confused about whether they are boys or girls.

AIDS continues to be a tragic fact of life whatever our age. sex, or sexual orientation. Other sexually transmitted diseases are on the increase. Gonorrhea and chlamydia are epidemic. Syphilis, once nearly eradicated in the United States, is reappearing.
