Mindful sex: Incorporating mindfulness into sex therapy for women with mixed female sexual dysfunctions

Alice Hucker

Many women with female sexual dysfunctions (FSDs) struggle to be mindfully aware and engaged during sexual activity. Instead, “mindless” engagement with their partner and their own body can lead to distraction from the moment, increased anxiety, decreased relaxation, and an inability to tune into pleasurable sensations. Traditional cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) techniques for FSDs have tried to target women’s difficulties in engaging in the sexual moment, but a recent and promising addition to the treatment of FSDs to more directly target “mindless” sex involves the inclusion of mindfulness - a Buddhist meditation practice. 

 
Recorded in October 2012 at the 13th ASSERT National Conference:
Sexuality: Beyond Difficulties, Definitions and Diversity, Melbourne, Australia.
