Sexual Intelligence: A New View of Sexual Function and SatisfactionDate: Mon, February 09, 2015
Time: 5:15 PM
What do most people want from sex?
Marty Klein, Ph.D., Marriage & Family Therapist; Sex Therapist; Author, Sexual Intelligence: What We Really Want from Sex, and How to Get It
What do most people want from sex? A combination of pleasure and closeness; but during the act, that’s not always the focus. Instead, we worry about how we look, smell, sound, and perform; distracted thoughts and feelings can lead to what so many people are afraid of – sexual “dysfunction” and dissatisfaction. Tying to improve "function" and friction doesn't give people what they really want from sex. After all, sex is much more than an activity; it's an idea.
Dr. Klein is an internationally recognized expert in human sexuality. He has been a marriage and family therapist and sex therapist in Palo Alto for 34 years, and he has written seven books on sexuality. Join Dr. Klein as he discusses ways in which we can improve our sex lives and connect with our partners.
