I don't have the time to answer most of the questions people send me privately about sex and relationships, so every Monday I publish a couple of questions from the previous week's mail, along with my in-depth answers.
To get me to answer your question on the blog, you must follow these E-Z directions.Some caveats:
1. Send me email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your question.
2. If you want your name published, tell me: otherwise, all questions will appear anonymously (and I will delete all identifying information as well).
3. You can ask me ANYTHING related to sex, from questions about what's normal to unusual fetishes, problematic relationships, sexual dysfunction, to get my professional opinion. You can also ask me personal questions or questions about my books, practice, etc. I don't mind. Be creative!
I can't answer everyone. If I get too many questions, then I'll start picking and choosing according to ones that are unique in some way--whether it's a rare fetish, a strange situation, or a really surprising/funny question.
Please remember that my opinions are just that. It's not gospel, even if I express strong opinions. I'm a clinical sexologist and sex therapist in private practice. I hold a Ph.D. and Masters in Public Health, both in human sexuality. I am NOT an M.D., a psychologist or a psychiatrist. The only kind of health issues I advise on are reproductive health and body image. (See my FAQ for a full list of my credentials.)
If you're in a real crisis in your life, a Q&A column is not the solution. Seek out counseling or therapy services. I do not offer referrals. However, you can visit my therapy FAQ for some consumer tips on shopping for competent therapy:
