Women too suffer from sexual disorders

Experts say that the relationship between men and women should be mutual and they should share their dilemmas like they share their life decisions. They feel that the spouses are good, but the communication between them is very poor


Communication between spouses important, say experts

With men and women these days actively participate in everything and sharing their happiness as well as other decisions of the life, experts say that they should also openly communicate about their dilemmas too.

“Nowadays, in many cases, relationship between spouses is extremely good, but the communication is very poor,” said Dr Saroj Gumaste, consultant sexologist and diplomat of American board of sexology, gynaecologist and a golden Lamp award winner

Having said that communication is very important, most experts believe that communication for women or girls needs a lot more acceptance, “It’s wonderful that now we acknowledge that women too can have sexual dilemmas. There can be many kinds of dysfunction for women like orgasmic disorder or desire disorder etc,” said Dr Anjali Chhabria, a consultant psychologist and psychotherapist and the founder of Mind Temple.

Chhabria further added that for a woman, the intimacy is complete with experiencing orgasm while for men, it generally begins with orgasm.

“Mindfulness, often living and focusing on a thing completely helps sexually,” said Janki Mehta, a Consultant psychologist and a faculty at SNDT as well as director and co-founder of Mind Mandala, an integrated psychological service centre in Mumbai.

“It’s important to start talking about sex at home. Parents can use some icebreakers like movies or so to communicate. That is very important. Your kids need to develop that confidence in you,” said Havovi Hyderabadwalla, a clinical as well as forensic psychologist, who is also co-founder of Mind Mandala.

Sexuality for the elderly was also widely discussed by Dr Varsha Reddy, a consultant sexual and reproductive health, MGM hospital, Kamothe, ” Sexual assaults on an elderly women is an acute problem and we (society) need to address them. All of this is because it’s difficult for us to put the elderly and sexual health together.”
