Hypnosis can help you overcome sexual performance anxiety because it is a purely mental construct based on stress and anxiety in your life generally or about sex more specifically. Either way, anxiety about sex and sexual "performance" is a product of too much thinking about yourself and how you perceive yourself as "measuring up" - no pun intended - in relation to what you think are the acceptable or desirable norms. Being self conscious and self absorbed in this way is a surefire way dampening the spontaneity that is an essential part of mutually satisfying sex.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) in and of itself, sometimes has a physical cause behind it, but anxiety, in relation to sex or anything else, doesn't. Feeling anxious and worried about your sexual prowess or performance obviously has no physical cause, the cause lies within your imagination and how you perceive yourself. If you're stressed at work, have financial problems or whatever, you're less likely to see yourself as being sexually successful and active. The worry and the stress gets in the way of everything else and begins to take priority in your mind over and above sex and many other things which you enjoy simply for their own sake.
Or maybe you weren't stressed about anything in particular but at one point had a sexual encounter that "failed" which can and does happen for any number of perfectly normal reasons. However in an area as psychologically sensitive as sex this kind of experience can set in motion a kind of on going reverse psychology, whereby you begin to fear - "fear" being the operative word here - that it could happen again. That fear sometimes lodges itself in the psyche and can re-emerge just when you least want it to, i.e. during or just before your next sexual encounter.
The result of the fear of so-called failure and of thinking too much about yourself and your performance can often lead to another sexual non event, which in turn establishes an habitual train of thought which starts to become ingrained and lead you to feel, think and believe that you have a big sexual problem. This then begins to compound itself and you end up seemingly trapped in a psychological loop of anxiety and worry around sex, in which sometimes even just the thought of sex makes you feel anxious and a bit fearful. Not exactly the best psychological grounding for good, mutually satisfying sex.
So how can this "loop" be broken and the anxiety around your sexual ability be removed? First of all remember that it's all in the mind, even if it might feel as if it's set in stone. It's not, and you are perfectly capable of changing your mind in any way that you really want to.
This is where hypnosis can really help. Trying to consciously force the anxiety away is of course doomed to failure, would in fact simply intensify it.
However with hypnosis the thought processes that maintain and sustain sexual performance anxiety can be neutralised and dissolved, and replaced with a positive mental association between relaxation, fun, spontaneity, intense physical and mental pleasure and the act of sex itself. By learning to allow yourself to relax and absorbing positive suggestions and mental imagery relating to you and sex, you find that sooner or later anxiety and self doubt have gone and that you and your partner can spontaneously enjoy great sex together. Following are details of audio hypnosis downloads designed specifically to do just that.
