Low self-esteem: the culprit in sexual dysfunction

We value ourselves throughout our lives and depend on our successes and failures.

Self-esteem and sexuality are exercised and built throughout the different stages of life. Since the image is a visual representation of what each of us has recorded, and is the hard disk acquired since childhood, sometimes for emotional or behavioral reasons, what we perceive of ourselves can be altered. When we look in the mirror, the result is negative. This would bring with it, for example, the complex of not wanting to show us, or camouflaging us to see the stereotype instead of ourselves.

We value ourselves throughout our lives and depend on our successes and failures. The social pressure for a role model for both men and women is very strong. This is how self-esteem impacts the sexual life of the human being. Sexual dysfunctions are generally accompanied by low self-esteem and vice versa, there is no sexual dysfunction with high self-esteem. Many situations of intimacy are thus affected, such as decreased desire or fear of rejection, leading to aversion or avoidance of sexual contact or activity for fear of failure.

Distortions based on erroneous sexual models lead us to distance ourselves from the moment we have lived, away from pleasure and away from reality.
