Hypnosis in Sexual Problems

  • P. Oystragh


Until recently, sexual problems were rarely presented to a doctor. Many reasons can be cited. If there were difficulties in this area, it was considered a problem for the female and it was something she had to bear stoically. In any case, women were not supposed to enjoy sexual relationships. All this has changed and sex is no longer a dirty word, and in some cultures even ‘nice girls’ are permitted to enjoy sexual relationships.
