Sexual Identity & Difficulties

Many of us, at different life stages, may experience sexual problems and feel very alone with this difficulty. In particular, our family background, our life experience and the way sex is portrayed in the media can lead us to be unrealistic in our expectations of sex or to misunderstand what is possible.

You may be concerned that your difficulty might be related to a physical condition, in which case you could discuss this with your doctor. Most sexual concerns, however, have a psychological component and if you feel it would be helpful to talk these through with a therapist, then please see our therapist listing.

Gender identity disorder occurs when a person feels as if their biological gender doesn’t accord with who they feel themselves to be.

Gender identity disorder (GID) or transsexualism is defined by strong, persistent feelings of identification with the opposite gender and discomfort with one’s own assigned sex. People with GID desire to live as members of the opposite sex and often dress and use mannerisms associated with the other gender. For instance, a person born a boy may feel and act like a girl. This is distinct from homosexuality in that homosexuals nearly always identify with their apparent sex or gender.
