She may not be Bill Clinton, but she is definitely one of the most important people in the field of sexuality.  Dr. Patti Britton is the Immediate Past President of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT).  www.aasect.org. Past President’s of AASECT read like the “Who’s Who” of sexuality professionals.  AASECT is the leading organization that certifies sex therapists throughout the world.  As I was thinking about the honor of having Dr. Britton appear on our show, I couldn’t help but think back to the elation I felt the day I learned that my 75 page application to become an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist was approved by the certification committee.  In addition to adherence to a strict code of ethics, AASECT Certified Sex Therapists are required to meet a long list of educational, experiential and clinical requirements.  Few people are better equipped to discuss any sexual concern than Certified Sex Therapist, Dr. Patti Britton.  I hope you will join us for what promises to be an excellent show.  For more about the show: www.sexandintimacyshow.com.   To learn more about Dr. Patti Britton: http://www.yoursexcoach.com/

The Cat in the Hat Smells a Rat…

I heard about this unbelievable “Kitty Porn” story from a colleague.  Frankly however, I was afraid to follow-up because I didn’t want to Google “Kitty Porn” and innocently get caught up in an FBI sting where the good guys were trying to catch the bad guys.  That said I knew this story was the cat’s meow so I took the risk and now the cat is out of the bag.  There is a sex offender (SO) in Florida.  He got busted by the FBI who found over 1000 images of child porn on the SO’s computer.  But here’s the gem of all defenses.  The alleged SO claimed his cat jumped on his key board and downloaded the porn.  Yes, the SO claimed the kitty was responsible for all 1000 pictures of kiddy porn.  Personally, I think this guy is lion.  Furthermore, when the investigatoin is complete I bet they find this guy has a long history of dogs eating his homework!

Sexual Athleticism…

Tonight on The Sex & Intimacy Show our special guest is Lorae.  Like Tiger and Elvis, Lorae is so hot she only needs a one word name!  Lorae is a sacred-sexuality educator who coaches men to be “enlightened lovers.” Her method mixes ancient practices like Tantra and Taoism with the latest western medical and scientific discoveries — and she does it in a way that’s practical, fun, and extraordinarily sexy.  According to Lorae, being an accomplished lover is like being a pro athlete — you need to learn the fundamentals from experts, develop your skills, have intense desire and drive, then  practice, practice, practice. I don’t know about you, but it sounds a lot more fun than Broncos training camp this week!  www.sexandintimacyshow.com

Sex is Privilege…

On August 13, 2009, in Uncategorized, by drneilcannon1

Most of us would agree that Ferraris, mansions, and yachts are reserved for the privileged.  How many of us however view sex as a privilege?  Elderly people who live in retirement homes rarely have sufficient privacy for sex .  People with disabilities are often told they are lucky to be alive so they shouldn’t even worry about sex.  And what about the members of our armed forces who so valiantly serve our country but are separated from their sexual partners for long periods of time.  Next time you see a homeless person give some thought as to what their sex life must be like.  I’m just saying, even if you don’t have a private jet, if you are having sex you may be more privileged than you ever gave yourself credit for.

Hard Days, Soft Nights…

As men’s age goes up, some uncooperative penises go down.  As we age sex can often be different.  Not necessarily better or worse, just different.  I had an older couple in my office today who are learning to redefine what sex looks like for them as they age.  I couldn’t help but think of my two favorite bulls here in the majestic foothills of Colorado. There was an old bull and a young bull.  They stood together looking down at a herd of well groomed heifers.  The young bull declared, “I’m going to run down there and get me one of them cows.”  The old bull thoughtfully replied, “I’m going to walk down and get them all.”  The moral of the story for our aging population; less can be more!

 

There are some things I just couldn’t make up and this is one of them.  A 33 year old woman from the great state of Pennsylvania is getting hitched to an amusement park gondola ride.  The couple has been dating for over a decade with the bride-to-be having ridden the ride 3000 times during the 10 year courtship.  The ride is manufactured by a company called Weber and as is the custom, the bride will adopt Weber as her surname. Very traditional, don’t you think?  The cool thing is that the bride is a church organist so she can play her own wedding march.  It seems they are practicing safe sex as long as she wears her seatbelt and she seems to be satisfied with her sex life so there isn’t much for me to do here.  A source close to the situation who asked not to be identified told me the happy couple will be going to Disney World on their honeymoon.

Too Much of a Good Thing…

Imagine a woman who is constantly aroused for no apparent reason.  Imagine she is unable to control when and where she has orgasms.  Imagine that even orgasm doesn’t bring resolution to her heightened state of arousal.  On the surface it sounds great, but it is generally very problematic for those concerned.  The term for this condition is Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome (PSAS).  Many women who have this condition don’t know what it is, don’t know where to turn, and feel ashamed because of it.  If you are in this situation here is a resource for you:  http://www.psas-support.com

APA Says Gays Don’t Need to be Fixed…

Sending gays to therapy to become “un-gay” has been a hotly debated topic within the mental health community for many years.  One school of thought (from a very tiny school with even smaller thoughts) is that homosexuality is a mental illness and that gays should undergo “reparative therapy” in order to become heterosexual.  The American Psychological Association (APA) representing its’ 150,000 professional members, said yesterday that after an exhaustive review of 50 years worth of studies, even if gays wanted to become straight there is no credible evidence concluding that reparative therapy is effective.  As a clinician who has worked with countless people of every sexual orientation, I can say with confidence that sexual orientation is not a choice, but rather a clear case of nature over nurture.  The only people that need repair are the people who impose their moral values on others, pathologize those who are different than themselves, and claim there is only one way to live in this life.
