Sexual frustration - Definition

July 2017


Definition


Sexual frustration is the feeling experienced when sexual desire goes unfulfilled. Desire and arousal are not satisfied, for various reasons: the desired person is out of reach (absent, married to another), or a poor relationship with the sexual partner (difficulties in achieving pleasure). Anger, and irritation when dealing with these sexual needs that are impossible to fulfill are feelings included in sexual frustration, which frequently affects young women and is also sometimes referred to as Bovarysm. Very common and generating conflicts between the couple, it can be tackled with support from couples' therapy or a sexologist.
