Involuntary Celibacy

Recent studies show that most Americans will spend an average of 19 years of their adult life single.  Some of those will “play the field,” some will be serially monogamous before finding a lasting partnership, and some will choose to spend some or all of that time celibate. Other research shows that many people in long term relationships will go through a period of involuntary celibacy—celibacy foist upon them by circumstances beyond their control and not of their choosing because of the medical or emotional unavailability of a long term partner.  Premature ejaculation, for example, can be so frustrating for the partner that it leads to avoidance of sexual contact.

Involuntary celibacy can destroy a marriage or long term partnership, but it doesn’t have to.  Dr. Rosenquist has successfully treated many relationships where sex had been scarce or absent for months and years at a time.
