I recently wrote an article for Graceless Media in their Mental Health Issue. I watched the Netflix Show “Sex Education” as a way to introduce the concept of sex therapy to readers and had a great time writing about what sex therapy is and what the show got right and wrong. Check out Why You Should Go to Sex Therapy!
“Our body is a system. Our mental, physical, social, and emotional health is an integrated whole that functions – or dysfunctions – together. Sexual health is included in that mix; it’s an essential part of being human. We are all born sexual beings. Sexuality is about pleasure, enjoyment, sensuality, and joy – whether it is a part of a sex act or not. No matter how we identify our sexuality (or asexuality) and gender (or lack of gender), humans are sexual. So, the notion that sex therapists focus only on concerns surrounding physical sexual problems is a faulty one. Sex therapy is typically a holistic practice which helps you get in tune with your body’s needs.”
