Sex should be simple, and it is, for the most part. What complicates it for us is what we bring to it in terms of personal and social expectations, as well as our experience of the constantly shifting sexual landscape, past and present. Sex therapy can provide you with a roadmap to better navigate your experience.
Why Sex Therapy?
You might be thinking, why do I need sex therapy? Shouldn’t I be able to figure all this out on my own? After all, sex is just part of the human experience.
If you step back a moment, you’ll realize sex isn’t just about sex. It’s about your relationship to sex and your own sexuality. For many, that gets muddied along the way because of those pesky personal and social expectations, along with a whole bunch of other things. Sex therapy is a way to sort that out for yourself and your partner(s).
You may be stuck in the constraints of your upbringing, or your perception of what sex is, what it should be and should be for you. Sex therapy provides you with a new way of looking at sex and sexuality that can help you shed those limitations, bringing a deeper understanding of what it means to be a sexual being within the unique context of your needs and your life.

What If It’s About Trauma?
Trauma comes in many shapes and sizes and sexual trauma, whether it’s sexual abuse, victimization, or the hangover from a narcissistic relationship, is no different. Whatever your history, when it comes to sexual trauma, these things, and others, can introduce anxiety into the mix, affecting desire to engage in sexual activity. It can also go the other way, impacting the way you engage with others and the intensity and quality of your relationships.
Sex therapy supports you in working through these different aspects of your social life, make better choices and develop healthier relationships. This leads you to a transformation of perception, and, ultimately, an experience more holistically aligned with who you are as a person and the way you are in the world.
What’s The Bottom Line?
Sex is good. This may seem obvious on the surface, but many people don’t have that experience. Social expectations and personal constraints can keep you on a leash, so to speak, hindering your personal development and not allowing you to flourish as a fully-fledged human being.
Sex therapy helps you sort through the obstacles and challenges of relating to yourself as a sexual being, nourishing and amplifying those aspects of yourself that may be stunted, dormant or distorted. Whether you’re trying to figure out how to develop intimacy in a relationship, struggling with sexual identity, looking in an the exploration of polyamory, considering a foray into kink, or just looking for a decent orgasm, sex therapy can help get you there.
