What is a sexologist?

A sexologist is someone who has extensively studied, at a University level, the field of human sexuality in all its aspects. There are presently three fields of professional practice in sexology: research, sexual education and clinical practice. A sexologist can be adept at all three, or specialise in at least two of these areas.

Why would you visit a sexologist?

There are many reasons one might make an appointment to see a sexologist, below are just some of them;

  • You and/or your partner are experiencing some sexual concerns
  • Experiencing differing levels of desire (mismatched libido/desire discrepancy)
  • Erectile concerns (e.g. rapid ejaculation or inability to maintain or gain erection)
  • Inability to orgasm (anorgasmia)
  • Painful sex (dyspareunia)
  • Wanting to explore your sexuality and sexual attraction
  • Wanting to explore your feelings about your gender
