A Blog About Sex and Sex Therapy

The SexualityResource blog is more than just a sex blog. We’ll cover a broad range of subjects, from general articles to interviews with key opinion leaders to new research on human sexuality. Your sexual health and well-being matters to me, and I’m driven to seek out the best, most accurate, and most useful information to share with you.

Not many sex therapists or sex blog writers are medical doctors.  Having a foot in both the sex therapy and sexual medicine camps has given me a valuable perspective on issues that have long divided sex experts. I’ve written articles on the perils of either/or thinking in sex treatments, and on why the field of sex therapy needs to start questioning its theoretical assumptions.


A Sex Blog in Search of the New

I believe that the worst sin for a sex blog is to repeat old, conventional notions that may or may not still be correct. You’ll find only original material on my blog.  The second worse sin for a sex blog is to be boring. Sex should never be boring, and neither should sex writing.

I’ve not hesitated to write about controversial topics, from Orgasmic Meditation to A Billion Wicked Thoughts, from Sex at Dawn to arousal non-concordance.  A sex therapist is always in need of new ideas, and you never know where the next useful idea in the sex field will come from.  I’m interested in people who will push the boundaries of conventional thinking about sexuality, in order to bring new insights to our field.  At the same time, I’m a skeptic about utopian claims that anything, from technology to non-monogamy, will change the basics of our sexual natures.


Sex Writing that Makes a Difference

I’m an inveterate reader, and for years have served on both the Consumer Book Award Committee and the Professional Book Award Committee of the Society for Sex Therapy and Research (SSTAR).  For the past several years, I’ve been the Chairman of the SSTAR Consumer Book Award Committee. I have a passion for making complex ideas understandable to non-specialists, and for sharing new knowledge about who we are as sexual individuals.

I believe that the approval of Addyi (flibanserin), so-called “female Viagra,” for Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder in premenopausal women on August 18, 2015 may herald a new era of research—where we’ll learn what really works and what doesn’t, and for whom.  I’m eager to listen to all viewpoints and share them with you, as we make our way into the sexual future (and try not to get too lost there).
