What is Sex Therapy?

Sex therapy is a form of psychotherapy designed to help individuals and couples address factors impacting sexual satisfaction. The goal of sex therapy is to help people move past physical and emotional challenges to have a satisfying relationship and pleasurable sex life.  Sex therapy can also help those who are currently not in a relationship deal with sexual issues or concerns they might have by building coping skills and building blocks.

The goal is with your therapist, to work on coping mechanisms to help improve your responses in the future for a healthier sex life. With each session, your therapist will continue to push you toward better management and acceptance of your concerns that may be leading to sexual dysfunction.

If your therapist suspects a medical dysfunction is the result of a physical sexual concern, they may refer you to a medical doctor. Your therapist and the doctor can consult about your signs and symptoms and work to help find any physical concerns that may be contributing to greater sexual problems.

What Happens During a Sex Therapy Session?

Sex therapy sessions can help you identify and change thoughts and behaviors that are interfering with your sexual life. You may see your therapist by yourself or with your partner(s). Your therapist may ask you questions about your health and sexual background, sex education, beliefs about sex, and specific sexual concerns. They may also assign homework — activities and exercises that you do in the privacy of your home.

Identify and change thoughts and behaviors

Sex therapy may help you identify the thoughts and behaviors that are interfering with your sexual life. Once you're aware of these, you can start to change them. 

Build trust and intimacy

Sex therapy may help you build trust and intimacy with your partner(s). This can be done through exercises that help you communicate better, express your needs, and listen to each other's needs.

Feel comfortable

Sex therapy can be awkward or uncomfortable at first, but it's important to feel comfortable.
You should feel safe to talk about your sexual concerns.
