Sex should feel good. When it doesn’t, or when sex is unappealing or unsatisfactory, we tend to go down a shame spiral and shy away from sex out of embarrassment or fear. Suffering in silence only intensifies feelings of isolation, but female sexual dysfunction is something many women deal with.
Dr. Patrusky prefaces this statistic by saying these numbers might be underreported because many are hesitant to admit to or discuss this personal frustration. The fact of the matter is, our bodies are working machines operating under a series of systems that can be disrupted by any number of causes. The human body is flawed, just as humans are flawed. Our bodies aren’t something to be ashamed of, but rather be curious about.
