    Hi ladies. There is a recent blog posted regarding anxiety and desire.

    Essentially, it is very difficult and often impossible to get aroused and desire intercourse and also enjoy orgasms while still in an anxious state of mind.

    An excerpt from the blog includes:

    f a woman is still experiencing a high level of anxiety and low desire after her Botox treatment, which sometimes happen, then it is important to explore how one can reduce the anxiety. Maybe taking a warm bath with scented candles and soft music, having a romantic supper at home and dancing afterwards, performing erotic massages on one another or maybe taking an evening walk under the stars. One needs to communicate with one’s partner to explore all the different possibilities on reducing the anxiety associated with vaginismus or everyday life – be open to all possibilities.”

    A further patient testimonial includes:

    “We arrived at the ocean, walked the beach, talked about our future and having a family, had the most relaxing supper imaginable at a really nice restaurant with fine linens, candles and soft music. When we arrived back at the hotel, I was totally relaxed. My husband was very gentle, caring, loving and provided a safe atmosphere for us to go forward.”

    What have you done to help you relax prior to intercourse that may help future patients who are now transitioning?
