Problems between the sheets? Therapist Nicole Engel talks about sexual dysfunction

“Sexual issues are mostly psychological in nature for both men and women. Common problems include difficulties with sexual arousal, desire fatigue and dyspareunia – or pain during sex. Men talk more often about premature ejaculation. Women talk more often about vaginismus, also known as vaginal cramps,” the certified psychologist and sexual therapist Nicole Engel explains.

Nicole Engel: almost every problem can be treated


The term “sexual dysfunction” carries a heavy and
often negative association. But that need not necessarily be the case. Many of
us will experience the challenges of sexual problems in our lifetimes, but these
problems are often treatable through therapy. The real problem is that it’s not
mentioned enough.


Well, thank god there’s Nicole Engel. In our O Talk the Berlin-based psychologist explains exactly what “sexual dysfunctions” are and why we should speak more openly about them. She also shares tips on how those affected can find help. Press play!

Frieda worked as a freelance journalist for over 10 years: She used to write about Easter recipes and style icons, about human metabolism and Michelin-rated restaurants. In short: about everything, except for sex. And for a good reason. Frieda always considered herself to be an average sexual person for all those years. Until a breakup persuaded her to stop taking the pill, which she had been on for 14 years. It was then, at the age of 28, that she finally discovered her wonderful sexuality and found her true, unique and hungry libido. Ever since, she has not only practiced a new sexuality. She writes and speaks about it too. And has never been as fulfilled as she is today!
