What Dr. Eilber can say in an interview on
Confidence and Sexual Wellness

Having sexual confidence is similar to having confidence in any other aspect of your life—you should feel empowered to tell your partner what you like and what you don’t like, try new things, say no, pleasure yourself, seek medical or other treatment if your sexual function isn’t what you want it to be, and feeling comfortable and confident in your own skin.

Not being sexually confident is often manifested by not being able to tell their partner that they don’t like something or tell their partner what they want.

​Many women will experience some type of sexual dysfunction that can be related to hormonal changes associated with aging. Sexually confident women will take charge and do what they need to do in order to regain the level of sexual satisfaction they deserve whether it’s taking hormones and/or using lubricants.

I have also had middle-aged women (usually newly single) consult with me because their partner told them their vagina wasn’t tight enough and on examination, their vagina was essentially perfect—their partners probably just aren’t well endowed. When I tell the women that they should all get new partners—that’s confidence!

Becoming More Sexually Confident

How does anyone become more confident with anything? It’s by having success with a situation that hasn’t been successful which usually requires positive reinforcement and a safe environment. One way to gain sexual confidence is to get a partner that is trusted and makes you feel safe and is willing to do what you want. ​

Traditionally sexual confidence was misconstrued as being promiscuous. Fortunately, sexual health and wellness are being recognized as a part of one’s overall health just like mental health.​

Whether it’s the bedroom or the workplace, it’s always important to be confident wherever you are so that you can ask for and get what you deserve to make you happy.​
