ABSTRACT
Although sexual dysfunctions among men and women are known to be common and the practice of sex therapy is now well established, there have been relatively few studies that have evaluated the effectiveness of sex therapy treatment programs for psychogenic related sexual dysfunction. There are a very small number of studies that have suggested that cognitive behavioural strategy-based treatment programs may be effective for female arousal and orgasm disorders and for male erectile dysfunction. However, the effectiveness of cognitive behavioural interventions in treating lack of sexual desire, considered to be the most difficult of all the sexual dysfunctions to treat, is largely unknown. Based on cognitive behavioural principles, the intervention consisted of a ten-session program that emphasized enhancing communication between partners, increasing sexual skills and lowering sexual anxiety and performance anxiety. The first two sessions were provided once a week and subsequent sessions occurred every two weeks.
