Should my partner go to sex therapy with me?

ANSWER

Sex therapy is most effective when a man's sexual partner is willing to be part of the treatment. Studies have shown that for men with stress-related ED, having the partner involved resolves the problem 50%-70% of the time. When the man must go through counseling alone, the results are somewhat lower.
