I was just concerned about problems during intercourse. I am feeling like a disappointment because I don't orgasm from penetration. Is this something you cantalk with me about?
Mental Health Professional: Linda D., Psychotherapist, LMSW, CASAC replied 7 months ago

We do not have an actual sex therapist here on this site, but we could explore whether this is an issue of feeling trust and emotional safety with your partner which is often needed for a woman to allow herself to surrender and have an orgasm.

I do not agree that most women do not experience sensation during foreplay or intercourse. That is an over generalization.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Well I am able to have an orgasm with a partner but not from penetration. I have had partners discount this experience or even tell me it doesn't count.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I am confused by what you mean by over generalization
Mental Health Professional: Linda D., Psychotherapist, LMSW, CASAC replied 7 months ago

Every man and woman is unique in what is stimulating to them sexually and what they need to orgasm. The range is as vast as you can imagine.

Or that whole last response actually
Mental Health Professional: Linda D., Psychotherapist, LMSW, CASAC replied 7 months ago

What I meant by over generalization is that to say most women do not experience sensation during intercourse is too general and I don't believe to be true based on my experience as a therapist working with women.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Well I think that's what I am concerned about. I am numb during intercourse. And I don't know if that is normal or there is some mental block going on.
Mental Health Professional: Linda D., Psychotherapist, LMSW, CASAC replied 7 months ago

Yes, that is an important thing to explore. Have you had this numb feeling with all of your sexual partners?

Ask Your Own Mental Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I don't feel much inside my vagina. Not mentally numb.
Mental Health Professional: Linda D., Psychotherapist, LMSW, CASAC replied 7 months ago

Why do you feel there may be a mental block?

Ask Your Own Mental Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Idont know. I just don't know if it's normal not to have any feeling during intercourse. And I feel very bad about myself because of it. I have been told by men that the type of orgasms that work for me do not count.
Mental Health Professional: Linda D., Psychotherapist, LMSW, CASAC replied 7 months ago

It is not normal to not have any feeling at all during intercourse. But it is also unfair to tell a woman that how she experiences pleasure sexually during intercourse does not count.

Ask Your Own Mental Health Question
Mental Health Professional: Linda D., Psychotherapist, LMSW, CASAC replied 7 months ago

I have opted out of your question since I do not feel I am being very helpful to you. This will give another therapist chance to help you if possible. I wish you all the best.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
