Sex Therapy 101 First, let’s talk about what this particular type of therapy is. Put very simply, the goal is to help you have a sex life that feels healthy and happy to you. Sex therapy recognizes. A major focus of sex therapy is the relationship itself, particularly communication about sex between you and your partner. Therapists also focus on any and all sexual issues affecting the two of you, from painful sex to problems experiencing orgasm to desire issues.

So, make sure you are both completely honest with the therapist about your concerns. The difference is that a sex therapy session is specifically focused on helping couples or individuals, overcome sexual difficulties. The reasons a couple, or an individual, might seek therapy are many and varied.

It could be anything from communication issues, performance anxiety, inability to reach orgasm, infidelity, aging, or different libidos. Two. The difference is that sex therapy is specifically focused on helping couples, or individuals, overcome sexual difficulties.

Blog. What To Expect From Sex Therapy. September 24,2015.

When I tell a new friend or acquaintance that I’m a sex therapist, the reaction I most frequently get is, “Oh. Ooooh. OK.”.

This is usually followed by an awkward pause, an avoidance of eye contact, and some nervous shuffling of the feet. The goal of sex therapy is to help people move past physical and emotional challenges to have a satisfying relationship and pleasurable sex life. Sexual dysfunction is common. In fact, 43 percent.

If you have done therapy before, or have tried couples therapy with your spouse you’re going to find sex therapy a little different. The questions will be more direct, and very few things are as complicated as sexual issues so don’t expect your problems to be solved overnight. Sex therapy is a form of counseling intended to help individuals and couples resolve sexual difficulties, such as performance anxiety or relationship problems. Clients generally meet in the therapist’s office.

Some choose to attend sessions alone; others bring their partner with them. For couples, sex therapy can help heal infidelity, enhance sexual and emotional communication, or explore alternative sexual expressions. Please remember, Sex Therapy is for Everyone.

At the end of the day, being human means we are sexual beings. As.

  • Thank you for this video Kati and Lindsay! I requested this on your Twitter account a few months back, so I’m so happy you guys were able to collab!!!! I’m an aspiring sex therapist so this is so exciting for me!

  • do you have to have a highschool degree to become a sexologist? or is it like becoming a beautician where you just need to go to a beauty school and get the degree

  • I’m trying to find the link to find help you n my area. My husband and I are stuggling with the lack of intimacy. He definitely has CPTSD, can you send the link again

  • It seems crazy to me that Americans often have to pay people 100$ a session for people to “make space” and listen to them so the client does the work themselves.

  • Nice colab. Thank you both. I didn’t see The PLISSIT Model https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBleG8SU0NI link among the other referenced links.

  • My husband abused me for five years by taking advantage of my body parts anytime he wanted even though I told him no. Seven weeks ago I asked for a divorce. I was THRILLED at the thought at being single…but he said he would change and begged me to stay. It’s been seven weeks and he has been very respectful and has done some great changing…but my heart and my body and my brain are NOT sexually attracted to him. I have told him this but he said I just need time. Because I am still married to him and chose to stay even when I didn’t want too, he has told me that a marriage requirement is to have sex. The thought of having to have sex gives me so much anxiety. I literally start shaking and crying knowing it might happen. I feel so bad because he is being nice now but I don’t want to be intimate with him at all. I’m going to the doc tomorrow to see if I can get a stronger anxiety pill so I can handle having sex. I’m miserable. How do I change that in my universe? How do I make my body like sex? I could live without it for the rest of my life but there is a sex requirement in marriage. Please help.

  • One of the least invasive and comfortable ways of exploring sex therapy is over the phone, Why not give it a shot with expert Therapist at The Susan Block Institute. Give us a call at 1-2l3-29l-9497. Can’t wait to meet you!

  • Are you suspecting your partner of cheating or having an extramarital affair?
    I’ll advice you to get proof first before confronting him/her. As that could result in unnecessary confusion in your relationship or marriage. it’s always advisable to consult a professional hacker to help you get concrete evidence by discreetly getting access to their phone or computer. [email protected] GMAIL.COM he has worked for me a couple of times and he never disappoints. he provides Accurate results.

  • I am 35 no experience with relation or sex. The sex is not the problem it is the lack of relationship skills.Then there is finding a partner (woman for me). I have M.D.D O.C.D and various phobias with a modified form of Tricktilamnia. I think these issues are a matter of enviroment (state or country) I am screwed.

  • Hi Kati, you mentioned making a video on the different mental health professionals and I just want to say I would love to see that. I hope you make it, it’s a great video idea

  • Yay Dr. Doe is amazing! If you do a video about the different kinds of therapists it would be so wonderful if you included the creative arts therapies! I’m an art therapist and I’d love to see some inclusion about other modes of therapy in that video! Thanks Kati!

  • I can’t watch this my head’s burning and feels weird and very overwhelming. Watching anyways, it’s probably not a difficult video anyways

    Ok it was really extremely nice and comforting, still feels feel really close to being completely horrible.
    It’s too much now things are too silent it’s just too much again

  • This has to easily be my favorite YouTube video. A collaboration with my two favorite YouTubers talking about two things that are not talked about enough! I was fortunate enough to meet Dr. Lindsey Doe last November not long before this video was filmed and hope I get to meet you in person sometime too, Kati! This video collaboration is just awesome!

  • So, after watching several times I am still left wondering what the difference is between a sexologist and therapist. Sexologist addresses a general assessment based on first 3 tiers of PLASSIT and therapist does intensive therapy? How, then, are LMFT’s professionally trained and accredited to treat psychological issues that can be devastatingly serious relating to sexual issues; particularly the issue of child sexual abuse, parental borderline personality disorders, attachment-based alienation, etc. of which many adult sexual issues stem from?

    Dr. Lindsey noted a “piece” of continuing education regarding sexuality but is this enough to deal with such an important issue?

  • I want a baby from last year, my husband feel like having sex just once or twice a month, and that doesn’t help in producing baby, I am on edge of divorce, bcus m done m stressed, can lead to suiside, bcus I don’t know what to do.

  • #KatiFAQ
    I’ve been trying to start journaling but I feel like I never know what exactly to write or that what I am writing is stupid. Any tips? I recently read Hannah Hart’s book, Buffering, & she has said multiple times that journaling is something that she does daily.
    I truly think it would be beneficial to me but I’m stuck ��

  • I’ve considered going through the a Sexology degree in my future. I’m almost done with my Art Therapy/LMFT master’s program. I think it would be really awesome and interesting to combine Sex Therapy with Art Therapy.:)

  • So for a someone who has experienced sexual trauma, is a sexology the best possible for treatment?
    I am diagnosed with PTSD due to sexual abuse and it can be difficult to with at times. I go to group therapy, but it seems awkward and innapropriate to speak about in front of others…

  • i thought this was interesting kati. I am home from the hospital they were not gonna let me home due to my intermittent explosive disorder and violence towards my sister but she seemed to be able to control it they heightened my meds in a hope to help keep me out of the hospital. but the ied is bad. it is slipping again i am having trouble with my meds and these are signs that i am going backward and the rages are more violent and last longer how can my sister help keep me out of the hospital help coz it is a struggle due to how severe it can become and is getting help kati.

  • I was cold towards my wife for a long time. She was losing interest in me and in sex. Now i am using Prolargentsize now and really enjoying life to the full. I will continue ordering it on Prolargentsize

  • A friend of mine believes her therapist is trapping her. It’s a family therapist so she’ll talk one on one with my friend or with her and her parents. My friend truly believes she no longer needs to see this therapist every week(she’s 19 and I’ve known her for almost 10 years and agree she’s truly happy on her own now) but the therapist has told her parents to make her keep going. Her parents have now told her if she stops going she’ll be kicked out. The therapist now even tries to convince her that she’s not really happy and tries to make her doubt everything she does.

  • Oh wow I didn’t even know that this sort of therapy exist! Thanks for educating me, enjoyed watching this a lot. I love when you have guests on your channel, Kati ☺️

  • I have a question. Can sexual arousal soften the cervix? I have noticed that some women feel pain if a penetrating object makes hard contact with the cervix, others find it pleasurable. Could this have to do with overall firmness of the cervix?

  • How come there are not more youtube channels that deal with this subject? I am desperate to find a sex therapist to help with my identity of being gay, and trying to find myself, which is so much harder when you are isolated.

  • Thank you guys for having the bravery to be femme bodied persons discussing these topics on social media. I needed this information to be able to discuss this and ask for this in therapy wothout feeling terrified/ashamed. There are tears in my eyes thank you so much for the healing your energy spreads.

  • I am going into my masters now for clincal counseling psychology. I want to study to be a sex therapist, it is an area I would be good at but I was told that its harder to get insurance to back up a sex therapist…is this true?

  • Hi Kati, again you’re not counseling me but your videos are giving me courage to reach out to my care network with specific topics. This is a hard one for me, but necessary. Thanks for your work! These videos you make are making a difference.

  • You’re both such lovely educators AND talk about/ spread awareness of things that are “taboo” which shouldn’t be. Love both of your channels.

  • I gasped when I saw both videos from you wonderful ladies in my subscriptions. I didn’t know this was a collab I NEEDED until It happened haha. Thank you!

  • Im studying Occupational therapy and we have many seminars on Sex and Sexualityy PLISSIT model!! im glad that internationally ( i am AUS) and interdisciplinary have ways to discuss this topic!

  • Hey Kati, do you have any advice on loosing someone to suicide? I lost one of my teachers Friday and I’m taking it quite hard.. I have another teacher that I’m very close with and that I talk too, but I don’t wanna burden her.. my psychologist is gone on Christmas vacation and my parents don’t wanna hear anything of the situation… thanks.


  • Also blown away by the idea of people having a sexologist/therapist like people have family doctors or dentists. I think everyone could use some variety of therapist for a least most seasons of their lives. Good to hear this being normalized.

  • Katie is so cute \(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥\(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥\(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥\(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥\(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥\(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥\(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥\(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥\(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥\(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥\(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥\(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥\(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥\(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥

  • A lot of women and experts, really want you to know they have the key to unlock your libido once more.
