Sex Therapy for Gay Couple Relationships

What is gay couple sex therapy for LGBT relationships?

Sex Therapy for Gay Couple Relationships

Gay couples in a relationship can experience sexual problems in their partnership just as much as anyone else. Working with an experienced gay couple therapist on sexual & intimacy matters can help the couple relieve their distress, find ways to talk about it and discover new to improve their sex lives and intimacy.

There’s not an awful lot – if any – of sex education in schools about gay or lesbian intimate relationships.  Chances are this won’t improve for sometime yet.  Is it any wonder that gay men and lesbian woman have to figure out sex lives for themselves – and struggle when their sexual relationships seem incompatible?

At GayCoupleCounselling.com – we’ll give you the tools to help you talk about intimate sex matters in the safety of the therapy session … AND to take into the privacy of your your own home.

 

GayCoupleCounselling.com helps focus on “secondary” sexual problems.

If we’re talking about sexual dysfunction, then “secondary” dysfunction refers to emotional blocks and difficulties to sex.  This is different to primary sexual dysfunction which is about physical causes (eg a prescription from a GP for Viagra may be helpful to a gay man to address a primary sexual dysfunction).

Working with a gay sex therapist, secondary sexual intimate problems can be addressed such as:-

  • Secondary Impotence (inability to achieve or maintain an erection – an emotional problem).
  • Premature ejaculation (where training techniques may be helpful).
  • Uncomfortable or impossible penetration (problems experienced by both gay men and lesbian women).
  • Inexperience of same-gender sex.
  • Vaginismus.
  • Difficulty/inability to orgasm.
  • Partners have different sex drives
  • Partners have different concepts about what is “good” sex.
  • Sexual fantasies not matching up to reality
  • ‘Lesbian bed death’ (long-term emotional intimacy interferes with sexual intimacy)
  • Body dimorphism (self-worth/self-esteem issues).
  
… and many more issues.

GayCoupleCounselling.com uses Skype Video Chat.

Our video couple-counselling services for LGBT relationships uses Skype’s “group video chat” service and is targeted toward gay coupleslesbian couplesmixed-sexuality couples in intimate/committed relationships who wish to use  GayCoupleCounselling.com‘s therapy services but who are either unable to travel to a face-to-face/in-person meeting, or who are in a long-distance relationship.

Long-distance/remote couple relationships are couples who are in separate countries or separate counties/states/towns who wish to work with GayCoupleCounselling.com specifically as a Specialist in LGBT Couples Counselling.

Benefits of using Skype for Couple Counselling.

  • Not all relationships are in the same home: in the same city, same county/state or even the same country!
  • Long distance couple relationships struggle with conflicts as much as living-together relationships.
  • Working with your partner via Skype with a qualified & experienced gay couples counsellor can be an appropriate therapy for your relationship problems.
  • The same therapeutic boundaries are maintained: time boundaries, session schedule’s and working practices.

Using Skype.

Most couples prefer to use two devices (eg 2 x computers, a computer and a Skype-enabled Smart Phone etc…) but if the couple can tolorate to sit very close to each other then a single Skype camera will suffice;  the couple need to be able to look at each other from time to time The choice to use one or two Skype devices is yours, though.

Confidentiality & Skype Video Conference.

Skype has a position on confidentiality which may effect some couples’ decision to participate in Skype video conference couple counselling – a version of Microsoft’s policy on Skype is here: http://memeburn.com/2011/07/microsoft-and-skype-set-to-allow-backdoor-eavesdropping/

Time Differences.

Skype couple counselling can be ideal for remote/Long-distant relationships – but we will have to manage any time-differences.

Outside-of-session Contact.

It is sometimes necessary to make contact with the counsellor outside of the sessions (e.g. to cancel or rearrange an appointment). When emailing Dean, best practice is to CC your partner in the email.  Unless it has been agreed otherwise by everyone, individual contact with Dean without the knowledge of the partner is not advisable, but we will manage this as far as possible should it become necessary.

Whilst attempting to engage in contact beyond the time-boundaries and therapy-boundaries is discouraged, we will manage situations as they arise.
