Mindfulness May Help Women with Sexual Dysfunction
ISSM Scholarships - ESSM School of Sexual Medicine: Application Deadline is June 1
Practicing mindfulness - paying close attention to the present - could be a useful technique for women with sexual problems, according to a recent study in Sexual Medicine Reviews.
The approach allows a woman to cope with distractions and anxieties by focusing on the current moment and the physical sensations and intimacy with her partner.
In their review, researchers analyzed four studies on mindfulness and sexual outcomes published within the last five years.
