Do you and your therapist feel comfortable discussing sexual health and sexual pleasure in your therapy sessions? If not, do you know why? The answer may surprise you!
Here’s a long-running joke among sex therapists that gives you a glimpse into what’s going on:
- Client: “Doctor, you know there are just some things I don’t tell you.”
- Doctor/Therapist: “And I want you to know, Mr. So-and-So, that I really appreciate that.”
Unfortunately, the joke reveals so much about our culture, and some therapists never receive training on how to work with clients about sexual issues.
