Anorgasmia is the inability to reliably orgasm. It often leads to stress, relationship issues, and even reduced fertility. Luckily, most cases can be resolved.
What is Anorgasmia?
Anorgasmia is a persistent difficulty in reaching orgasm or the inability to reach orgasm at all. It occurs in people of all genders and leads to fertility concerns for many men.
Anorgasmia can also lead to problems like reduced sex drive and the inability to get or stay aroused during sex. These cases are frequently referred to a sex coach.
What causes anorgasmia?
Anorgasmia is caused by a number of things, including:
- medical conditions
- drug & alcohol use
- sexual trauma
- low self-image
- mental blocks
- depression & anxiety
In some situations, anorgasmia is initially caused by medications or medical conditions. However, when medications are changed or the condition is resolved, anorgasmia persists.
In these cases, stress, low self-image, and/or mental blocks have often become the new cause of anorgasmia. For many people, one or a combination of these was the problem all along.
How is anorgasmia treated?
If anorgasmia appears with the onset of a new medical condition or when beginning a new medication, treating the condition or changing medication often resolves the issue. If you experience pain in addition to anorgasmia, talk to a doctor.
For those experiencing anorgasmia after sexual trauma, and/or alongside mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, or substance abuse, therapy can be a source of relief. A sex therapist can be especially helpful in these situations.
In cases where anorgasmia appears before or in the absence of new medications, conditions, or trauma, sex coaching is an effective form of treatment.
Professional coaching has helped countless people resolve anorgasmia in the absence of medical and mental conditions.
What is sex coaching?
Sex coaching is ongoing consultation with a qualified sexuality professional. A certified sex coach is trained in the causes and treatment of anorgasmia and can provide guidance in reducing stress and changing the thought patterns that allow anorgasmia to persist.

- identify their specific issues preventing orgasm
- create a personalized plan to resolve those issues
- stay on track and motivated with regular check-ins
