Sexology is the scientific study of human sexuality, including sexual interests, behaviors, and functions. ‘Clinical Sexology’ is the term used to describe psychosexual therapy or sex therapy.
It is used to help address a variety of issues such as concerns about sexual functioning, difficulties in your sexual relationship, concerns about sexual interests or sexual orientation, compulsive sexual behavior, erectile functioning concerns, difficulty with sexual arousal, trouble reaching orgasm (anorgasmia), painful intercourse (dyspareunia), premature ejaculation, intimacy issues related to a disability or chronic condition, and concerns regarding past unwanted sexual experiences.
Sex therapists do NOT have any type of physical contact with clients. Sex therapy is typically short in duration. However, the number of sessions depends on the concerns and goals being addressed.
