Sexual problems can cause of major personal and relational problems. It has been said that few forms of failure are regarded as so abject as sexual failure.

They are, in other words, strategies from the environment of evolutionary adaptedness. Here we will apply these general rules on the sexual domain for women. In successive order we will discuss:
