What is Sex Therapy?
Sex therapy is a type of psychotherapy that deals with the issues related to sex. Sex therapists are specially trained professionals who help individuals, couples or families get rid of their sexual problems. They will provide you clinical assessment, diagnosis and treatment regarding your individual concerns about sexuality.
Sexual health is an integral part of overall health and well-being. When something is impacting our sexual health, it can have a ripple effect on every other area of our lives. Issues such as erectile dysfunction, low libido, premature ejaculation and difficulties with orgasm can make us feel anxious, frustrated, embarrassed and even ashamed. This can lead to relationship problems and affect our self-esteem. At the end of a day, a one-hour appointment with the doctor can make our life into a better place by fixing our sexual health.
How does Sex Therapy work?
Some people may think that sex therapy is for people who have serious problems such as rape, incest or molestation. In fact, anyone who has sexual concerns can seek help from a therapist.
Sex therapy is similar to any other type of psychotherapy. You treat the condition by talking about your experiences, concerns, and emotions.
You then work out coping mechanisms with your therapist to help improve your responses in the future so that you can have a healthier sex life.
During your initial appointments, your therapist will either speak with you alone or with you and your partner. The therapist is there to guide and assist you in dealing with your current problem:
- They are not there to take anyone’s side or persuade anyone.
- Furthermore, everyone will keep their clothes on. The sex therapist will not have sexual relations with anyone or demonstrate how to have sex with anyone.
Your therapist will continue to push you toward better management and acceptance of your concerns that may be causing sexual dysfunction with each session. All talk therapy, including sex therapy, is both supportive and educational.
It is intended to provide solace and encouragement for change. You will most likely leave your therapist’s office with homework and tasks to complete before your next appointment.
If your therapist suspects that your dysfunction is the result of a physical sexual problem, they may refer you to a medical doctor.
Your therapist and doctor can discuss your signs and symptoms and work together to identify any physical issues that may exist.
What are the sex therapy sessions look like?
In addition, the therapist may assign you exercises and tasks to complete with your partner on your own time. Sessions typically last 30 to 50 minutes. The therapist may recommend weekly sessions or less frequent visits, such as once a month.
What can sex therapy help with?
A sex therapist can assist people with a variety of sexual issues, including lack of desire.
- It’s difficult to have an orgasm.
- Inability to have penetrative sex or pain during sex
- Erectile dysfunction (difficulty getting or maintaining an erection), premature ejaculation, or other ejaculation issues
Do I require sex therapy?
One way to determine whether you need to see a sex therapist rather than another type of talk therapist is to consider which aspects of your life are most affected by how you are currently feeling.
If your sexual dysfunction has a negative impact on your quality of life and emotional health, you should see a sex therapist. Similarly, if your most serious personal concern is a lack of intimacy or difficulty communicating with a partner, consulting a sex therapist is a good place to start.

“It has assisted me in confronting those uncomfortable aspects of myself rather than sweeping them under the rug or attempting to ignore them. I’ve been able to take a step back and examine the areas of my life where I’ve been self-conscious.”

3) Couples are treated as a unit by dual-sex therapy teams.
4) a brief intensive programme
When it comes to being a sex therapist, there is more to it than meets the eye. Did you know, for example, that they earn an average of $25.81 per hour? That equates to $53,693 per year! Between 2018 and 2028, the career is expected to grow by 22%, creating 54,200 job opportunities across the United States.
Sex therapists are psychiatrists, psychologists, marriage and family therapists, or clinical social workers who have specialised training in dealing with sex and intimacy issues. They do not engage in sex or have any physical contact with their clients.
Most sex therapists see individual clients for 45-60 minute sessions at rates ranging from $120-$180, and couples and relationships for 75-90 minute sessions at rates ranging from $190-$310. The availability of certified sex therapists in your area, as well as general mental health costs in your state, may cause these rates to vary greatly.
