Dealing with Sex Shame


Go to to try online therapy through BetterHelp.

For a long time I’ve wanted to talk about sex shame on this channel. How many people experience it, how often, and in what ways. I think it is the number one cause of sexual dysfunction and dis-ease. I asked people on Facebook and Twitter to share their experiences of sexual shame to address them more collectively and received hundreds of messages describing shame from family members, friends, organizations, teachers, and medical providers. People referred to body shame, shame about gender, relationships, prowess or lack of. Some of them felt too ashamed to disclose the shame.
This episode is for all of us to recognize what’s happened and why we have the feelings we do. It’s also to continue the process of letting the shame go — setting it on fire — talking it out with a therapist.

I care about you and want you to live your best life!
