I practice pro-sex therapy. I don’t really feel I have the option not to in my NYC therapy office. In the case of sex, everyone has it, had had it or has a significant relationship with it. Sex is such a vital part of who we are as human beings. To ignore it would be akin to ignoring feelings.
People need to talk about sex. This isn’t just because people can have all sorts of challenges related to sex (difficulty getting turned on, being too turned on, being into a partner and then not, negotiating safety, making sense of fantasies, negotiating consent and feelings around a pressured sexual experience, etc.). Understanding a particular individual’s life often needs to include an understanding of his or her sex life.
