Sex Education


Medindia Health Network, one of Asia's premiere health care portals, has reported that Female Sexual Dysfunction is an age-related, progressive and highly prevalent problem affecting nearly 30-50% of women globally.
According to, the McKinley Health Center, the body's actual response to sexual stimulation occurs in stages; these stages are fluid, and very individual.

When problems continuously occur at these stages, a woman most likely is experiencing sexual dysfunction. The American Psychological Association (APA) classifies female sexual problems as:
a. Mental disorders - loss of sexual desire or arousal,
b. Discomfort during intercourse,
c. Diminished blood flow to the vagina,
d. Trauma-related aversion to sex,
e. Inability to achieve orgasm.

Sexual dysfunction may have physiological or psychological causes or a combination of both the physiological and psychological.


Sexual dysfunctions are treatable. The first step is to rule out any physical causes that may be affecting the problem. Education, information and counseling are often very effective in relieving sexual problems. If you have questions about any of these conditions, talk with your health care provider or schedule an appointment with a Sexual Health Educator.

"In her book The Naked Truth, author Lakita Garth, an internationally known abstinence advocate, presents a very convincing defense of an abstinent lifestyle before marriage. Drawing from her own background and experiences as the daughter of a strong mother figure and the younger sister of several older brothers, Garth obviously writes from what she knows and teaches.
