How Anxiety Impacts Sex with Dr. Lauren Fogel Mersy Your Anxiety Toolkit Podcast Host Kimberley Quinlan

I cannot tell you how often I get asked about how anxiety impacts sex. Social media followers often ask questions that involve how anxiety decreases sex drive, how sexual arousal can occur at unwanted times and the impact medication has on sexual arousal and orgasm. 

In today's episode of Your Anxiety Toolkit, we have Dr. Lauren Fogel Mersy to speak about all things anxiety and sex. Dr. Lauren Fogel Mersy is a certified sex therapist, psychologist, and upcoming author and she answered all of my questions on how anxiety impacts sex. 

When discussing the topic, Dr. Lauren Fogel Mersy answered the following questions: 

  1. How can we refocus on the present when anxious?
  2. Does anxiety impact orgasm?
  3. Can anxiety cause sex to be painful?
  4. How to handle arousal related to unwanted, intrusive thoughts?
  5. How to manage strong feelings about sex, such as desire but also repulsion?
  6. How to manage sex hygiene?
  7. Will medication impact sexual arousal?
