Sex Therapy: Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is Sex Therapy?
A. Sex Therapy is a form of talk-therapy, which incorporates clinical skills to focus on difficulties related to sex, gender, intimacy and sexuality.
Q. Who can benefit from Sex Therapy?
A. Both men and women can benefit from Sex Therapy. This includes, but is not limited to those who are struggling with their sexual desire, arousal, performance, satisfaction or identity (including gender identity), as well as alternative sexuality. Also individuals coping with an STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease).
Q. What happens in Sex Therapy?
A. Often times sexually-related problems are linked to one's daily life stresses such as finances, work, family etc. One's personal history such as sexual abuse, or how one was raised to perceive sexuality and intimacy can also play a role in current sexually-related problems. It is therefore common to talk about past, or other non-sex related aspects of your life in Sex Therapy. The Sex Therapist will often assign exercises to be done at home to gain understanding, comfort and skills both physically and emotionally related to sex and intimacy. These exercises will then be discussed within therapy.
If the sexually related problem is found to be medically related then Sex Therapy will either be replaced, or supplemented with a medical practitioner.
Q. Do I need to be in a relationship to begin Sex Therapy?
A. No. Sex Therapy can be practiced with both individuals and couples.
Q. Is there physical contact or will I need to undress in the sessions?
A. No. There is no physical contact in the sessions and you will remain clothed. Whether working individually, or as a couple Sex Therapy remains talk-therapy.
