Sexual dissatisfaction occurs when your sexual experiences do not bring you pleasure, fulfillment, or connection. Sexual dissatisfaction can be accompanied by feelings of dread, anxiety, frustration, and discomfort. Over time, you may notice that you want to engage in intimacy less frequently or find yourself avoiding intimate experiences all together. At times sexual dissatisfaction my occur in combination with “sexual dysfunction”, a persistent and recurrent problem with arousal, desire, orgasm or pain that interferes with your ability to engage in intimate experiences.
