How does sex therapy work for erectile dysfunction?

ANSWER

Sex therapy is a short-term form of counseling, generally involving five to 20 sessions with a sex therapist. A typical session may be one hour every week or every other week.

The counselor will give you "assignments" to do at home, such as:

  • Reading books about sexuality
  • Touching exercises that are designed to take away the pressure to perform during sex
  • Practicing better sexual communication skills
