Sex Therapy Anyone?

If you want to be better in bed, you need to do your homework! Try Dr. Laura Berman's weekly homework assignment, designed to help you ace your sex life. Dr. Laura is the director of the Berman Center in Chicago, a specialized healthcare facility for women and couples where she provides general and sexual therapy. She is also an assistant clinical professor of OB-GYN and psychiatry at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University. Dr. Berman has been working as a sex educator, researcher and therapist for 20 years. She is the author of the New York Times best-selling book Real Sex for Real Women. (featured on Oprah)
This Week: Sometimes, no matter what you do to make your sex life more enjoyable, there still seems to be problems in the bedroom. This week, consider seeking out couples therapy or sex therapy. Check out the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists for a recommended provider in your area.
Often there is a stigma associated with seeking professional help or support, especially when dealing with matters of the heart and bedroom. That's understandable, because our personal lives are intimate and private! Frequently, we associate the need to seek professional support with a sense of failure or feelings of inadequacy. Women have a tendecy to share PERSONAL information with other female friends. Usually these female friends, though well intentioned aren't qualified to offer an unbiased opinion based upon years of experience, research and professional practice. Nor are they sworn to an oath of privacy and discretion. So, why not consider it sex therapy? Your mate probably doesn't want you disclosing your bedroom concerns with your girlfriends and vice versa. A therapist is discreet, judgement free and may be able to rock your sex life!

My husband HATES when I discuss our relationship with my friends. And I think he would hate going to a therapist even more. Especially when discussing sex. I think it certainly has something with having to admit there is something wrong. How do you even discuss sex therapy/therapist and your mate he not feel inadequate?

I've seen some the episodes of Oprah with Dr. Laura. She seems really good at what she does. I know they have discuss sex toys and positions and everything!!

I think if all therapist were a good as her more would be open to the idea. But usually when I think of sex therapist I think of little old ladies, like Dr. Ruth and the one that use to come on Oxygen...not sexy! LOL
