Sex Therapy and How to Have a Sex-Positive Life with Dr. Janet Brito– Episode 147

April 26, 2022

Research shows that couples or individuals who can talk constructively together, or in therapy, tend to have more satisfying sexual and genuinely happier relationships. The topic for today's show is sex therapy and how to have a sex-positive life. To talk about this topic Dr. Graham Taylor is joined by Dr. Janet Brito. Janet is a nationally certified Latinx sex therapist, supervisor, speaker, and trainer. Janet is the founder and owner of the Hawaii Center for Sexual and Relationship Health, a group practice that specializes in relationship and sex therapy, out of control sexual behavior, and gender and sexually diverse populations, and The Sexual Health School, an online training program for healthcare professionals seeking human sexuality training. Together Graham and Janet discuss the challenges of shame and embarrassment around sexuality, the barriers to expressing your sexuality, exploring the origin of feelings with your sexuality, how the negative self-meaning system infiltrates your sexual life, normalizing and validating some of the age-related experiences that folks naturally go through as they age, and ways you can reframe your intimacy and partner connection through therapy. Give yourself permission to ask for help and to find a safe space where you can talk about some of these issues that may be bothering you and allow yourself to create new definitions of sex and pleasure. It's okay to be who you are.
