Learn Valuable Skills to Cure Sexual Health Issues
Dr. Paul Turek’s philosophy is not just to treat but also to cure men’s sexual health issues. To cure a problem, patient education is crucial. When you see Dr. Turek, you will notice that he takes the time to create a comfortable learning environment to teach you about your body and your condition. He will educate you about the medical cause of your condition using simple, comprehensible language and illustrations. Dr. Turek will provide all the information you need to make informed decisions about the treatment and management of your condition.
Medication can treat or control problems like ejaculatory dysfunction, but behavioral and sex therapy is an important part of curing these issues. Working with a sex educator and sex therapist can help you “own” your sexual health issues, deconstruct them and relearn how to overcome them.
Dr. Turek and The Turek Clinic collaborates with noted sex educators and therapists for cases involving the following:
- Male infertility (for performance issues)
- Erectile dysfunction (for performance issues)
- Ejaculatory dysfunction:
- Premature/early/rapid ejaculation
- Delayed ejaculation
- Primary (lifelong) or secondary (new onset) anejaculation – the absence of ejaculation
What Does Sex and Behavior Therapy Involve?
“When men see me for ejaculation issues, I compare its treatment to having to deconstruct and relearn your golf swing to enable a longer or more accurate drive. And sexual therapy is the key to the entire retraining process.” – Turek
Sex and behavior therapy is designed to give you the tools and resources you need to reclaim sexual function and experience and enjoy sexual activity. Your therapy will be uniquely tailored to your unique goals.
Depending on the case, sex and behavior therapy can include:
- Exploring your sexual history and current lifestyle to identify any conditions or issues that could be contributing to the problem
- Examining any beliefs you have that cause shame, embarrassment or guilt about sexual intercourse or sexual satisfaction
- Examine other beliefs you may have about yourself, your relationship or your significant other
- Decreasing anxiety associated with intercourse and eliminating the pressure to perform
- Improving your body awareness
- Teaching you how to understand the sensations experienced during sexual pleasure
- Teaching you how to gain greater control over sexual stimulation
- Teaching you techniques to gain greater satisfaction from sexual stimulation
- Teaching you systematic relaxation techniques to slow down reflexes and prolong sexual stimulation without the demand for erection
- Teaching and practicing skills to effectively communicate your wants and desires with your partner
Sex therapy often takes between six and 20 weeks, but this varies based on the patient and the problem. Your partner’s participation and cooperation with sex and behavior therapy is crucial for lasting success.
Sex therapists understand that it can be difficult for men to talk about intimacy and sexual dysfunction with a stranger. The therapists that Dr. Turek recommends will put you at ease and give you the confidence you need to talk openly about sex.
