Treatment of sexual aversion is difficult, mainly because most men and women would rather not discuss sexuality and are resistant to seeking help. If they do seek help, the most common treatment involves discovering and resolving the underlying conflict. Generally, cognitive-behavioral therapy is most successful at helping to uncover the re­lationship issues or events from early childhood that contribute to the symptoms of sex­ual aversion. Treatment often includes goal setting and the completion of homework as­signments, both individually and with a partner. It is important that therapy moves at the client’s pace and time is taken to work through his or her issues.

The DSM-IV-TR has two categories of sexual arousal disorders, female sexual arousal disorder and male erectile disorder. Sexual arousal disorders occur even when the client reports adequate focus, intensity, and duration of sexual stimulation. The disorder may be primary, or more commonly, secondary in that it only occurs with a certain partner or specific sexual behavior.
