Fear of sex: what to do if you find physical intimacy terrifying

We speak to psychosexual therapist at the College of Sexual Relationship Therapists Krystal Woodbridge and sex and relationships expert Tracey Cox about facing your fears and learning how to enjoy sex:.

If this is the case, you might benefit from speaking to a sex therapist. Ask your GP for advice or visit the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists to find a therapist specialising in sexual and relationship issues.
