Cosmo.com wrote a piece about me!
1. Sessions are more about feelings than sex positions. “Clinical sexology” might sound like I know every sex position under the sun, but what I do is actually pretty similar to couples’ therapy. In my practice, sessions are rarely about how to have more orgasms, or how to last longer in bed, or techniques to have better sex, though some sexologists might touch on those topics regularly. What I do is more like traditional talk therapy, except we’re talking about sex and relationships. You have to know the fundamentals of psychology and counseling in addition to knowing about sexuality. If you want to do hands-on work, become a sex surrogate or a dominatrix. Being a clinical sexologist is all talk, no action.
2. People will assume you’re a sex freak. Call it an occupational hazard, but when you have a PhD in clinical sexuality, people make assumptions about your sex life. When I was single, this came up all the time — men assumed I had no boundaries, that I was totally uninhibited, or that I did it all the time. In some ways, it actually made my dating life easier, because the people who were intimidated got ruled out very quickly. Now I’m happily married to someone who is very supportive of — and isn’t intimidated by — my work.
3. Potential clients may try to use you for phone sex.
