Abstract: Frigidity is a non-medical sexual dysfunction and inhibition of sexual pleasure (orgasm). Its etymology can be organic or psychosocial. Some of the causes of frigidity among women in Nigeria were traced to socio-cultural such as religious factors, early marriages, environmental stress, sex myths, taboos, belief: and traditional female circumcision. The study also listed some of the negative consequences of frigidity to include reduced/total loss of sexual enjoyment, stigma, ego despair, familiar separation (divorce) and in extreme cases, depression. In order to stem the tide of frigidity and its allied negative consequences in Nigeria, the researchers recommended among others two (2) multimodal counselling approaches- (Sensate Focus and the PLISSIT model), legislation against childhood marriages, obnoxious sex practice and the sustenance of the on-going global women, empowerment schemes.
