Everything You Wanted To Know About Sex Therapy (But Were Too Afraid To Ask)

Ever wonder what exactly happens when couples and individuals visit sex therapists? We went straight to the source and asked. Below, sex therapists from around the country answer the most common questions people have about sex therapy. What happens during sex therapy, honestly?  Get your mind out of the gutter: Having sex is not part of a therapy session, said Kimberly Resnick Anderson, a sex therapist in Los Angeles, California.  “Some of my clients are surprised ― dare I say, disappointed ― when they discover my office is not decorated with dildos, vibrators and butt plugs.” As Resnick Anderson explained, sex therapy is a legitimate form of traditional psychotherapy (talk therapy) with a focus on sexual feelings, attitudes, behaviors and education.  “I use a client’s sexual and developmental history as a backdrop to interpret current sexual function, expectations and satisfaction,” she said. “Sure, provocative material may be discussed ― and intimate topics may be explored ― but sex therapy with a licensed mental health professional never includes any sexual contact.”  What kinds of people consult with a sex therapist ― and can I go alone?  People of all stripes make appointments with sex therapists ― and yes, solo visits are cool, said Megan Fleming, a psychologist and sex therapist in New York City. “I see singles and couples of all different ages, sexual orientation, ...

Conclusions: Limberg flap reconstruction for pilonidal sinus in the setting of acute abscess is a viable option with outcomes comparable to that for disease without acute abscess. This practice will avoid the pain and cost associated with a prolonged local wound care regimen involved in drainage of the abscess prior to flap reconstruction.

We describe a case of a patient with severe intellectual disability and an open fracture of the distal lower limb. After fracture management and debridement of devitalized tissues, the resultant soft tissue defect was covered with a free gracilis flap. On postoperative day 7, the patient ripped out the newly transplanted flap. The flap was too traumatized for salvage, so a contralateral free gracilis muscle flap was used. The patient showed good aesthetic and functional outcomes at a 1-year follow-up. When planning the postoperative management of patients with psychiatric illness, less complex and more robust procedures ma...

Abstract BACKGROUND: While multifraction radiotherapy (RT) regimens (MFRT) have been considered the standard of care in patients with metastatic epidural spinal cord compression (MESCC) with limited prognosis, recent randomized evidence has demonstrated that single fraction RT (SFRT) may be equivalent in terms of functional and overall outcomes. A systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted to determine the effects of SFRT compared to short course MFRT in patients with MESCC. METHODS: A search of OVID, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials from inception to February 2018 was con...

Marijuana consists of a mixture of dried plant leaves, flowers, and/or stems of the Cannabis Sativa plant. In addition, there is a resin-based version of marijuana that is called hash. Most people either smoke marijuana or vape it (warming it, but not cooking it), but it can also be ingested in oil form. The most common way to ingest marijuana is to roll it up and smoke it like you would a cigarette or cigar, or use a smoking tool like a pipe. Some users, however, consume weed by infusing foods (i.e., butter and cooking oil) or teas. What happens to your body when you ingest marijuana? THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the mos...

Summary We attempted to evaluate whether circumcision has an effect on premature ejaculation. We searched three databases: PubMed, EMBASE and Google scholar on 1 May 2016 for eligible studies that referred to male sexual function after circumcision. No language restrictions were imposed. The Cochrane Collaboration's RevMan 5.2 software was employed for data analysis, and the fixed or the random‐effect model was selected depending on the heterogeneity. Twelve studies were included in the meta‐analysis, containing a total of 10019 circumcised and 11570 uncircumcised men. All studies were divided into five subgroups by ty...
