Unhealthy views on intercourse additionally contribute to sexual frustration “Ideas like ‘I must be having extra intercourse,’ or ‘somebody ought to give me extra intercourse,'” for instance, are a giant wrongdoer, says urologist and life coach Kelly Casperson, M.D.
“I believe generally folks imagine they need to have their sexual wishes met by a companion,” shares Candy. Usually, this perception stems from their upbringing, society, gender roles, faith, previous companions, “or straight-up selfishness.”
There are different ways in which commoditizing intercourse results in sexual frustration, too. In truth, Casperson says some folks use intercourse as a car for shallowness. “Somebody could grow to be reliant on intercourse as an exterior reward—i.e., boosting self-image—and will by no means really feel happy as a result of inside work that must be performed.”
