TopicStarter Posted September 28, 2021 Share Posted September 28, 2021 Frustration sets in when your sexual needs are not met. And, it is possible to feel sexual frustration whether you are single or in a relationship. Many people experience this as a build-up of sexual tension to a point where it feels uncomfortable. Since there is no outlet or release for sexual energy to dissipate, it leads to frustration which can cause other issues like anxiety or depression. In my experience, I was sexually frustrated in my marriage which caused constant arguments and irritability about my needs not being met. Thankfully, over time I realized that there are healthy ways to deal with it. Here are some things I did to reduce sexual frustration: #1 Identify The Root Cause In essence, sexual tension can be compared to a stressful situation, so the methods used to deal with it overlap stress management methods. First, take a moment to sit and understand yourself. Often people feel sexual frustration when they have dissatisfied sexual experiences, lack of partners, mismatched libido, or unhappy sex life with their partner. Finding which issues are causing you stress will help take further steps to manage the frustration. #2 Masturbation One of the easiest ways to reduce some of the tension is to indulge in self-pleasure. It is not always possible to find partners to have sex with, especially if you have been single for a while. In that case, regular masturbation can help relieve the stress caused by built-up tension. Even though people in relationships might not consider this option, self-pleasure is a great outlet for those not satisfied in relationships too. #3 Engage In Other Non-Sexual Activities Using your time and engaging your brain in various activities throughout the day will likely leave less time for sex and frustration. I don’t mean to say you should avoid your problems, but physical activities like sports, dance, or yoga are excellent stress management techniques. Keeping your body and mind engaged positively impacts your quality of life and reduces overall tension, including sexual tension. #4 Take The Help Of An Expert In my case, my partner and I reached a point where we could not reconcile our difference in sexual needs and wants. Some might take this as a trivial matter, but the relationship was breaking over our inability to understand each other’s sexual preference. That’s when we reached out to an expert who helped us break the barrier which was ruining our marriage. When you think things are getting out of hand and cannot solve them on your own, maybe it’s time to consult a professional. Is sexual frustration something you have faced? What steps did you take to overcome it. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
