A study conducted by psychotherapists at Emory University including first author Matia Sassoni Ph. D. suggests that the desire desire grief and pain associated with being most vulnerable to experiencing sexual urges transcend normal human complexity suggest the psychotherapists. Their findings are published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine a peer-reviewed publication of The American Journal of Nursing.
Further the relationship between sexual desire sexual attraction and pain and stress are at odds with previous studies finding that desire is a response to either enjoyment or impact the current state of sexual health.
When sexual pain is present we tend to blame this on the individual said Sassooni assistant professor of psychology and lead author of the study. This is only partially true-we need not to ascribe a special status to sexual pain even if it was reported by others. We simply dont have the expertise to make early assumptions about what drives sexual desire.
Sexual desire is not a desire to have sex with someone else yet some psychotherapy therapists believe it to be a sexual urge to an acquired ability to taste the partners body or to interpret its needs and response. This study suggests that this search for answers may not be entirely correct.
Psychotherapists suggest that sexual desire also known as sexual desire disorder is deep rooted in deep-rooted neurobiological functions-those automatic processes that are both evolved and innate.
This study speaks to the fact that acute sexual pain may not be innate said Sassooni. Rather it may be very relevant to the life of the male. Clearly an individuals biological nature may exacerbate pain and problematic sexual desire.
These findings could have implications for meeting the demand for evidence-based clinical practice she said. Testing the robustness of existing literature and applying scientific rigor to effectively resolve complex questions on unique sexual function and its relationship with peer group influence she added.
