There are four known types of sexual dysfunctions; sexual desire disorder, sexual arousal disorder, orgasmic disorder, and sexual pain disorder. The sexual dysfunction that I will be discussing is orgasmic disorder.

The first category that I will be discussing is called the female orgasmic disorder. This disorder causes women to have a difficult time achieving an orgasm, if they can achieve it at all. Some women can achieve orgasms through masturbation even though they have this disorder. Women with this disorder usually do not receive enough clitoral stimulation during sexual intercourse to be able to achieve orgasm. Women may also either be trying to hard or have some type of sexual anxiety that will not allow them to achieve an orgasm. Some women will also experience premature ejaculation but most of the time they will not realize this has happened.

The second category that I will be discussing is called the male orgasmic disorder which is a little bit different from the female orgasmic disorder. Males can usually reach an orgasm but sometimes it may happen either too soon or it will take too long. Some males can still experience an orgasm through masturbation or oral sex. When males cannot achieve an orgasm they may be experiencing psychical problems such as multiple sclerosis, neurological damage, issues with drugs or alcohol, sexual guilt, performance anxiety, or anger towards that person. It is more common for men to have premature ejaculation.

There are several approaches to treating orgasmic disorder. First of all it is very important to seek treatment. So make sure you talk to your doctor about sexual issues. People with these issues can also go to sex therapy and seek help from a professional sexual therapist because they can provide different techniques and exercises that will help the person overcome the…...

...Brittany PSY/265 Week 1 CheckPoint 2 Critical thinking skills are essential to every part of our lives, however they are particularly important when discussing sex. A person’s sexual decisions can have a huge impact on their life (pregnancy, disease and relationships) and should not be made without deep thought and consideration of all possible outcomes. I believe one of the most important critical thinking tools regarding sex is skepticism. People will say anything to try to convince another to have sex. An individual must be able to see through lies and sugar-coated words to see the truth and the intent behind the proposal. That is not to say that all sex should be had only if the parties involved are planning a relationship, but both parties should be able to see clearly what the parameters are. It is also essential to examine all arguments, from all sides, and then form one’s own opinions. Different organizations have different goals (e.g. pro-life vs. pro-choice groups) and therefore will distribute information that is favorable to their opinion. In order to make educated and informed decisions, one must examine all arguments and weigh them against individual values and morals. One organization should not dictate the sexual activities of a person or persons. Finally, it is very dangerous to over simplify or over generalize arguments. Take the issue of abortion, for example. Simply saying that all abortions are wrong (or ok) is not right. Every person has......

Psy265 Week 4 Styles of Love

...Styles of Love | Marcia Brandon | Professor Iwamoto PSY265 June 7, 2013 | Styles of Love Possessive, excited love (mania) can start out as something interesting and fun at first. Mark and Sarah meet at a bar and get a long great. They decide to exchange phone numbers and plan a date for next week. The following week they hook-up and go out to dinner and the movies, Mark is feeling really into Sarah, but after this date Sarah isn’t feeling the same kind of connection as she did at the bar. At this point Sarah decides she only wants to be friends with Mark. However, Mark feels differently and start sending her flowers, visiting her unannounced at work. At this point Mark can’t stop thinking about Sarah, he is losing sleep, having a hard time with eating, and he has become obsessed with Sarah. This level of mania is very unhealthy and is starting to scare Sarah. The unwanted attention, starts to feeling as though he has become overwhelmed with her. At this point things have become very bad for Mark, and can lead to bad things for Sarah as well. Selfless love (agape) is a love that is very giving. The person becomes willing to give-up just about anything to make the other person happy. They value the love of his or her partner more than him or herself. This form of love can become easily abusive. The person receiving this love may take advantage of the loving person, taking him or her for granted. John and Becky have been together for a few months now....

Checkpoint- Reflection

...Checkpoint- Reflection XACC291 Checkpoint- Reflection According to last week’s readings revenue expenditures are also known as “ordinary repairs”. These expenses occur frequently, are usually inexpensive, and are to maintain the business. Capital expenditures are additions and improvements being made to a company. These expenses occur to increase a company’s operating efficiency, productive capacity, or useful life of a plant asset. A company must use good judgments when deciding which expenditure to select because of the close similarities that the expenditures share. Some similarities that are shared between capital expenditures and revenue expenditures during a useful life are; they are each expenditures that help the company (revenue expenditures are to maintain the company and capital expenditures are to help increase the company’s investments), they both occur frequently, and are seemingly cost efficient. The entries of revenue expenditure for a company that owned trucks if the business needed to repair a truck they have to pay cash to get the vehicle out of the shop. Or the company has to put brakes or tires on the truck, you pay the bill now. These repairs are recorded as debits to Repair (or Maintenance) expense as they incurred, these debits are paid immediately. Capital expenditure is when something is added on or improved to help increase the company’s investment. When something is being done to help improve the business this is going to bring in some......

Checkpoint: Signals

...CHECKPOINT: SIGNALS Explain the differences between data, voice, and video signals in 200 to 300 words. Include a description comparing the differences between a private branch exchange (PBX) and Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP). The three types of signals data, voice, and video. Besides the obvious differences between these three signals there is more to them. The first signal I will describe is the video signal. Like the name suggest a video signal transmits videos from one point to another. They come in both analog and digital. These can be used by business to transmit videos to video monetors around a business to transmit information to employees. The next type of signal is the voice signal. According to the last weeks required reading, the voice signal, or audio signal, is responsible for supporting applications based on sound, usually of the human voice. (8text) What this basically means is that the audio that goes through a network through a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) or a private branch exchange (PBX) is a voice signal. One of the differences between a PBX and a VoIP is basic function. A PBX is a system that in essence it is an internal telephone network that enables one office to call another office within the company. The company would only need to by one or two main telephone lines to connect to an outside line. So a business would save on money not having to supply each office with an outside line. A VoIP is similar to the PBX, but a......

Prejudice Checkpoint

...Prejudice Checkpoint Genna Lee psy/285 6/15/2014 Prejudice Checkpoint Prejudice comes from an unequal status and from other social sources including learned values and attitudes. Family has that largest impact of learning prejudice. Parents teach their children who and why they should or should not like or trust someone. Many other elements play a role in prejudices attitudes, society, emotions and cognitive processes all influence prejudice as well. Society confirms prejudicial attitudes in different ways. You have the authoritarian personality, religion, conformity and aggression. The authoritarian personality is that those who tend to hostility to a particular group usually shows the same hostility to all groups they see as different. Religion can play a role in prejudice as well because in almost every country leaders invoke religion in order to sanctify the current order of things (Exploring Social Psychology, ch.23, pg.259). An example of this is when the vote for gay and lesbian rights come into play be it adoption, marriage or tax equality you often hear the Bible verses of Leviticus spoken as an example of why it should not be accepted. Those verses are Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13, "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination" (Leviticus ch.18 verse 22). The other scripture you often hear quoted is "If a man lies with another male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death;......

...Checkpoint: Technology-Trendy Communication I think that technology is forever changing and that the companies today use this to their advantage. Most companies use e-mails instead of regular mail and this allows the information to be instantaneously transferred to the other party. Orders can be placed for products over the Internet via an automated system, therefore leaving employees free to do other things that need to be done. There are smart phones, email, text messages and instant messaging for people who are always on the go and don’t have time to sit behind a computer. Accessibility Technology has greatly increased accessibility in business communication. Because of things like smart phones, email, text messaging and instant messaging, information can be sent very quickly to anyone, anywhere. This has altered accessibility in a multitude of ways. People can work or communicate from anywhere and at any time. Your phone is your computer. I think that because technology is so advanced and you can conduct business from anywhere via you cell phone that it may put a strain on a persons personal life, because you will always be available to your job. Companies can also target the social networks such as Facebook and Twitter to inform a different type and age group about their company and what the company supplies and is able to do. So in answer to the question do I think that a business effectively uses the changing faces of technology to......

Checkpoint Navigation

...Checkpoint navigation It 236 Checkpoint navigation Web site navigation is an important function of a web site; some would argue that navigation is the most important. Why is a web site’s navigation so important? Many factors play a role in the importance of web site navigation. Most if not all web sites include more than one page, different content, or products, and interactive features. In order to access all that a web site has to offer the visitor will want to effortlessly find their way to what they may be looking for. Usability should be simple, a clear pathway that leads to a page as well as back to where started. Navigation menus are common at the top of the page in a horizontal list or on the left side with a vertical list going down. These two places are the most common because this is what the visitor is use to. Familiarity will make for a more pleasant experience. Simplified navigation allows the visitor to better retain the information on the site. Keeping the page options to a smaller number will help insure information is not overlooked. Concise navigation through fewer clicks will also give better results with search engines. To produce the most satisfying experience the visitor should be aware of where they are, where they are going, where they have been, how to get somewhere else, and how to get back to any of the previous mentioned. When labeling the navigation links do so by using familiar terms such as about, contact, services. Although there......

...Checkpoint: Motivating Employees Many employers, large or small, use many motivation techniques with their employees. It is obviously known that an employee who is motivated in their workplace is much more productive than employees who are not feeling motivated. Having motivated and productive employees make for a more successful company. Furthermore, if a business has motivated and productive leaders and managers, chances are they will set the example for the rest of the staff. New employees will develop higher work ethics and better work habits. When other employees see how an employee who is performing well is treated by management, they will strive to receive the same treatment. A noticeable difference will most likely be seen between those employees who are being motivated and treated compared to the treatment that an employee who is not motivated and not productive is given. Motivating an employee or a company full of employees can be difficult for any organization if the necessary reinforcement plan is not in place for those motivators. Motivation can be referred to as either intrinsic or extrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivation focuses more on motivation received from an activity itself such as why children play or adults who work on crosswords or puzzles. There is not a physical goal, other than just the fun they receive from doing that action. Extrinsic motivation focuses more so on a reward or consequence from an activity. An example of...

Psy265 Sexual Techniques

...Sexual Techniques Sha'Tera Harris PSY265 September 15, 20011 Erica Jones Sexual Techniques The first form of sexual technique discussed in the text was masturbation. The text states that the purpose of masturbation is self-stimulation in the hopes of achieving sexual gratification. Next the text discusses sexual fantasies, which can be used by one or both partners in hopes to increase arousal. Finally is foreplay, which involves kissing cuddling, touching, and oral-genital contact. Kissing is not only used as a form of sexual foreplay but also as a form of personal expression. In the context of sexual technique kissing is described in two forms deep kissing and simple kissing. Simple kissing is a kiss with the mouth closed. Deep kissing is kissing when the mouth is open and the tongue into each other’s mouth. Cuddling is described as holding one another in an intimate fashion. Touching can range in form from simply holding hands to caressing a person’s erogenous areas. Lastly is oral-genital stimulation. In women the medical term for oral genital stimulation is cunnilingus, while in men the medical term is fellatio. The roles and connections between touching, kissing, and foreplay would be when two people start kissing and touching and it leads into foreplay and later sexual intercourse. Simple kissing is when the mouth stays closed, yet when the mouth is open and the tongue is in use it is considered to be deep kissing. Touching the partner’s body and or genitals...

Checkpoint Siginals

...Checkpoint Signals IT/242 March 16, 2012 Howard Sims Although voice, data, and video signals travel along the same physical media as one another, many differences exist in the way these signals are actually transmitted. In order to transmit voice signals, a telephone uses a thin diaphragm in the telephone receiver to reproduce vibrations caused by the changing tones in a human voice. Electrical signals that are analogous to the waves produced by a caller’s headset diaphragm flow over the network medium. Voice signals require a dedicated circuit and are not able to use error control because of time restraints. If voice signals were to arrive out of order (like a data signal can afford to do because of the error-correcting information contained in data packets), then they would not be of much use; the voice would sound garbled an unintelligible. Data signals can arrive out of order with little......

Checkpoint on Orientalism

...2012 Checkpoint Characteristics of Orientalism, Prejudice and Discrimination Nicci Eth/125 Cultural Diversity 2012 Checkpoint Characteristics of Orientalism, Prejudice and Discrimination Nicci Eth/125 Cultural Diversity Let’s think- What is the true difference? This to me is hard; I don’t like to distinguish all the differences between different races- because to me everyone is the same. The true difference between Muslims and Arabs is that Muslims are people who follow Islam, the religion and Arabs are people from Arabia typically. In my own opinion I would say Arabs are the ethnicity or race and Muslim is a religion. In the past 2 years, the policy changes that have occurred would be that the justice department policy change that would allow the FBI to investigate Americans without evidence of wrongdoing, relying instead on a terrorist profile that could single out Muslims and Arabs. Under this new guideline the FBI would be permitted to consider race and ethnicity when opening an investigation. This to me sometimes is still unfair and people are judgmental of Arabs and Muslims ever since 9/11. Which to me is sad and unfortunate because not everyone is a terrorist and just because of their religion or culture they are discriminated against more I believe. Two characteristics of Orientalism are Spirituality and its diversity in terms of people. These things create stereotypes amongst different people. Hate crimes stem from ignorance about a different......

Checkpoint Money

...CheckPoint - Money Steven A. Tijerina XECO/212 Principles of Economics April 21, 2012 Jason Kelley Money Moneys acts as a unit of account by providing a measure of the value of exchanged services and goods. Understanding monetary value enables suppliers and purchasers to make sound decisions on the number of goods to purchase and the number of goods to supply. Money is used as a medium of exchange when completing any financial transactions, for example, if money did not exist then the only recourse would be to barter by directly exchanging goods and services. The downside of bartering to obtain a good you must have a good of equal value that the other party wants or needs. Another flaw to bartering is the double coincidence of wants, which makes transactions much more difficult to complete because one party does not need what the other party has. Money eliminates the barter system because money is used as a medium of exchange for transactions by all the parties involved. Store of value is a medium of exchange only when money retains its value, in other words, $1000 in the present economy retains the same monetary value 10, 15, 20 years down the line; however, inflation and cost of living decrease the value of money as prices rise. Money is not the only store of value, for example, others include artwork, postage stamps, gold, and land or similar valuable goods. Money is liquid compared to other......

...Week 9 Checkpoint PSY/265 06-31-2012 Lauren Klatzker Week 9 Checkpoint What are the effects of the media’s portrayal of sexuality on adolescents’ sexual lives? It is certainly evident that adolescents are directly affected by the media’s portrayal of sexuality. For instance, the media has a growing tendency to depict young adolescents acting in sexual and mischievous ways. Media that is deemed as appropriate for adolescents also contains sexual content; both directly and indirectly have an influence on them. Sex is all over the media and as a result adolescents are being greatly exposed to it. Adolescents have a higher probability of becoming involved in sexual activities, and added social pressure is placed on these adolescents since the media often times depicts it as a cool and trendy thing to do. The opposite holds true as well; it is not cool and untrendy to not be involved in sexual activities. The media’s portrayal of sexuality can cause adolescents to believe it is okay being promiscuous and/or sexually active. What are some negative and some positive effects of the media’s portrayal of sexuality? Some of the negative effects of the media’s portrayal of sexuality pertain to the fact that it causes adolescents to become sexually active at a young age and subjects them to the possibility of disease, and pregnancy. There are additionally some positive aspects, too. For instance, the media’s portrayal of sexuality exposes adolescents to the potential...
