Sexual Compatibility - Is it Necessary to Have a Long Lasting Relationship?

Sexual Compatibility - Is it Necessary to Have a Long Lasting Relationship?

Compatibility between couples is a hotly debated and researched topic that encompasses many things. It includes mental, social and financial compatibility among many things. One of the most important thing between any couple is also the sexual compatibility.

Sometimes, this topic is given overt importance while sometimes it is pushed to the side. Some of the factors, which determine the importance of sexual compatibility in a long term relationship are mentioned below:

  1. Experience: It may be the case wherein one of the partners is far more experienced than the other and this might cause certain issues in the relationship. While this may be a temporary problem, it may rear its head up later when one of the partners wants to try something new and the other wants to stick to the same old thing. Thus, it is better if both the partners have fairly equal level of experience so that they are on even keel.

  2. Confidence with your own sexuality: Although experience matters, confidence with one’s own sexuality also counts.  An experienced partner may be less confident than an inexperienced partner in some cases as well. You should have explored your own sexuality in some ways to understand what your likes and dislikes are and what your no-go zones are. This will help you communicate them better to your partner.

  3. The amount of sex drive each partner has: Two people will not have the same level of sex drive. What matters is how close they are and how adaptable they are to each other. If one partner wants sex every day and the other wants it only a few times a year, then it is obviously going to cause problems. It is important to gauge that at the start of a relationship as this can end up being a major disappointment and a deal breaker in the long run.

  4. Openness to discuss sex and adjusting to your partner’s needs: This is a very important parameter as openness to discussing sex means you are comfortable trying to gauge each other’s desires, likes and dislikes and thus adjusting accordingly. It is important for both partners to meet at the middle which will result in a happy relationship in the long term.

  5. Have realistic expectations: It is important to have realistic expectations with your partner as far as sex is concerned as there are bound to be differences. However, if there are certain points which you think may cause problems, it is important to discuss them right at the start of a relationship, as they may end up causing problems in the long run.

Why is sexual compatibility important?

Sexual compatibility is very important as physical attraction and shared pleasure are two of the major contributors to pair bonding within a relationship. It is very important to be able to discuss sexual compatibility as this often gets buried under financial and social compatibility. However, it may cause major strife and marital problems later. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

I am suffering anxiety disorder from last 10 month so what should I do for it and how long it take and cure.

I am suffering anxiety disorder from last 10 month so what should I do for it and how long it take and cure.
Hi lybrate-user, first of all I would like to tell you, that in anxiety there is a role of both medication and psychotherapy to cure oneself fully. You will have to continue medication for a year or so as suggested by the doctor, do not leave the course in between or you will elapse and again start having the symptom. For, psychotherapy you can consult a psychologist online, it is important to treat the anxiety from root. While everyone struggles with fears daily, in the case of anxiety, these fears significantly affect a person's ability to function at work, in school, or in relationships. Having an anxiety disorder can feel hopeless, but there are ways to help. Practice deep breathing. Imagine your stomach as a balloon. Inhale fully and deeply through your nose, feeling your stomach expanding. Then, exhale, gradually allowing your stomach to collapse. You can perform deep breathing exercises during a panic attack or frequently throughout the day to reduce stress and fend off anxious feelings. 20 to 30 minutes of deep breathing daily is ideal. Reciting a script in your head like" I am safe. Or" I am perfectly calm. May help. Train yourself to be calm with meditation or yoga. Daily engagement in calming activities can help you rid yourself of anxiety or keep these feelings under control. Meditation involves mindfully clearing your mind of fears or worries and focusing on cleansing, relaxing breaths. Yoga incorporates stretching and body positions called asanas with meditation and breathing techniques for a full-body calm. Look up meditation for beginners or online or sign up for a yoga class at a fitness studio near you. Eat several balanced meals per day. Anxiety can be exacerbated by not taking care of your body. Have a healthy, balanced meal of lean protein, fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy several times a day (i. E. Between 3 and 5 meals daily)[18]. Plus, keep energizing snacks like fresh veggies, fruit, and nuts on hand to fuel your body in between meals. Eat foods high in healthy fatty acids like salmon and avocado in addition to complex carbohydrates such as whole grain oats and brown rice to manage anxiety naturally. Avoid caffeine and alcohol. These substances can actually make anxiety worse. Both alcohol and caffeine can make you edgy and interfere with your sleep cycle. Engage in regular physical activity that matches your abilities. This can include walking your dog through the park or a more vigorous exercise regimen such as high-intensity interval training. Research shows that regular exercise provides mood-enhancing endorphins that not only help build self-esteem but take your mind off what's making you anxious. In order to be sure that you stick to a routine of regular physical activity, it's best to sample a variety of activities and rotate between a few that you enjoy the most. For example, you might like participating in group sports most. However, you might also enjoy swimming for when you do not have a group of people with whom you can play. Always speak to your doctor before starting a new fitness regimen. All the best.

Dear Lybrate user it's important to get your physical check up done. Consult your physician and get the evaluation done for any physical leading to these issues. For inattentiveness, try preparing a to do list before beginning your day. Put a tick mark when that particular task is finished. Similarly try to organize your work like labelling important folders, cabinets. Keep your work in sections. All the best.

I need more detail history to make a proper diagnosis. You mentioned that she has depression but I think we should look for personality disorder and bipolar disorder also. Anyway continue the medications till you meet a psychiatrist. Regarding Fluvovin 50, it should be taken at bed time as it has sedative property and dose increment can be done if required. Side efeect of dicorate are usually hepatic dysfunction, weight gain, PCOS, tremor, hair loss etc. Wheras common side effect of Fluvoxin are sedation, dizziness, sexual dysfunction etc.

no sex never stops height growth. it improves personal capacity and mental health also. twise or thrice it is also not a big problem. there is no physical problems. if he addicted next time if she is not available then starts psychological problems. there is no chance of physical problems. but there is a chance of psychological problems. early stage sex addiction it is not good for personality development. if one girl is over then he searches another girl. if she not agreed then problem starts. at this without knowing anything it is good. but now generation is very fast. it destroys career life. so my opinion it is better to stop. if is ok then continue. no physical problems will not come in future also. better to take good food and relax most of the time. dont think too much about sex. dont sit alone and dont think alone. be share your personal feelings and problems with close friends and family members. be sociable all the time and be happy all the time. ok all the best.

Dear, for any substance addiction, the best treatment method is to have awareness and use will power. There are rehabilitation measures, but they only work when the addicted person willfully accept it. You may consult a de-addiction specialist. Take care.

I am 58 years old, male with Schizophrenia since 10 years. At present I am put on Amisulpride 200 mg 0-0-1 and Sizopin 100 mg 0-0-1. Of late, I am thinking of replacing Amisulpride with Paliperidone 3 mg OD (Of course, only after the consent of my Psychiatrist, with whom I have an appointment next week). In the mean time, I want to know, how safe it is and will it react with Sizopin? Please confirm.

If you have been stabilized with amisulpiride and sizopin , its better to continue the same treatment. if you have any side effects or if there is no improvement, then only you think of changing the medication. As such paliperidone has no serious side effects but can cause stiffness of muscles and shaking in some pts.

Dear lybrate user the symptoms you described are ruminating thoughts, magical thinking. There may be more and that you may be consciously acting on them or avoiding something to get relieved of inner distress. Medications and in severe cases ect may help. But in your case you want something which you can do by yourslef, so my suggestion to you is that when you get the thoughts you should try to distract yourself by say listening to your favourite music or say do something of your interest or talk to someone you admire in life but donot talk about the thoughts that are goung in your mindmind but rather talk something else or say you may keep a band tied around your wrist and just flick it on your wrist whenever an irrestible thought gets into your head. I hope by doing this you may get over some of your distress. Do tell me more about yourself and you problems. Take care.

I loss my phone. I am very depressed .from two days I feel very bad. And start the head take also .what can I do?
Hi lybrate-user! This is an unexpected incident, so there is no use of you worrying about the loss of your phone let it go. Try to take it easy (If you feel "taking it easy" is not that easy then you can definitely seek a Professional Psychologist help to overcome this problem. You have not mentioned the reason for your depression in losing the phone us it because of storage loss, sentiment or mony. Let it go, try to stop feeling for it, and do not get so much attached to things like phone etc. Definitely you can buy a phone and try to not lose it again. There certain therapies to overcome depression and to lead a peaceful life without worrying for simple loss. You can undergo treatment for the same from a Professional Psychologist or a Counsellor to overcome the same. If you are interested you can contact me either through text chat or online consultation yes you are most welcome. Take care. Be cool and relaxed. With regards

When ever I tired to learn something I feel that my brain freeze and I can't understand any thing and feel sleep like condition.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Mind Control and some of its techniques. It’s a term that can have many meanings. Some people think of it as the ability to take control over the mind of other people. I prefer the meaning of controlling your own mind instead. So what does this term mean? As I have understood up to now, it is the ability to understand and control your feelings, emotions and behaviour. As you do this you have full control of yourself and you can achieve many goals in your life. Also you will have great self-confidence which is the key to success

I have JUVENILE MYCLONIC EPILEPSY since 3 years. I came to know about it when I met a neurologist which had me an EEG test. There is no one in my family have this problem. Not even any neurological problem so far. I don't know where I got this disease. Doctor said the cause is unknown. Also I am physically weak. Is weakness might be a cause? I have also other problems such as memory loss, confusion and attention problem. Are these problems due to that disease? I just want to know what's cause of this.

I am addicted of wine and smoking. So many time I tried to quit but I do not. please tell me what I have to do.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop your habit of drinking alcohol permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from alcohol during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from alcohol you will feel a strong craving to drink just one peg of alcohol whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You cannot satisfy yourself with just only one peg. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of alcohol. Moreover you may feel a slight shivering of your hands after abstaining from alcohol for more than 15 days. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for alcohol.

What is the effect of moderate alcohol on body and which is the second most common organ effected by alcohol abuse.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There is probably no danger in moderate consumption. The problem is that what is moderate now may become full-fledged alcoholism because over time you will develop tolerance and dependence and the consumption will increase and you could become addicted. All of us will obviously deny this and have great confidence that that could never happen to you: this is a great fallacy. Facts prove otherwise. Remember everyone started like that and many have ended alcoholics. In relation to the effects of alcohol on the organs in the body, there is no determined path because of the many other factors that affect the body. It is rather safe to say that the brain is the next organ that will be disturbed by alcohol abuse, other conditions being normal.
