Sexual expression—whether intercourse, oral sex, manual stimulation or French kissing—is a superb conduit for affection and love. Couples who either do not make love or do so infrequently are usually not as close emotionally as couples who frequently make love.

There is a lot of confusion about who is qualified to treat sexual problems and relationship problems. Those seeking help have to wade through Google and Psychology Today listings to try to find an appropriate therapist. Just because someone is given a green arrow by Psychology Today does not prove that the therapist is qualified at all.
Headlines abound with new information about Harvey Weinstein’s aggressive and exploitative violation of a woman’s right to self-determination, free will and probable criminal activities. The Weinstein story has rightly highlighted the abuse of power to exploit and rape women. We need look no further than Weinstein, Donald Trump and Bill Cosby to see glaring examples of sexism, groping, using and otherwise exploiting women. Although there are too many men who use and abuse women, there are far more nice guys who insist on clear mutual consent prior to any sex.
