Sexology is the interdisciplinary study of human sexuality, including human sexual interests, behaviors and function. Clinical sexologists facilitate clients’ sexual growth by helping them to identify their sexual goals and by offering education, resources, tools and techniques to help them meet those goals and ultimately manage their own sexual growth. The process entails the following steps:
Helping clients to identify where they are when they arrive and where they want to be when they finish their work with a sex specialist.
Helping clients to identify the factors that allow them to feel safe and those that prevent them from meeting their sexual goals.
Designing and suggesting exercises to help clients to progressively expand their sexual comfort zones until they reach their goals.
