Sexual Revolution or Sexual Repression – What’s Going On?

Sexual Revolution or Sexual Repression – What’s Going On?

By Erica Goodstone, PhD, LMHC, LMFT, LPC

Are we on the verge of a new sexual revolution?  Are we already experiencing a sexual revolution?  Or is society becoming more restrictive, even at the same time that sexuality seems to be exploited in the media?  Yes, we have a real need for sexual reawakening.  I am not so sure about whether we are having a sexual revolution, but some sexologists believe we are.  In fact, in many ways, the topic of sexuality has become increasingly repressed while our conversations and teachings have become more restrictive.

Welcome to the Sexual Reawakening Virtual Summit beginning June 6, through June 26, 2016.  This is no ordinary summit.  First, you can have your own front row seat in your living room, office, or bedroom.  It is a virtual event, but this is no ordinary virtual event. I have brought together many leading sexologists including researchers, educators, therapist trainers, therapists, medical professionals, and authors. They each share their own unique expertise, advise, and perspective on this vast, important, and often neglected topic.

Our sexuality and our love map – our sexual needs, desires, fantasies, and behaviors – reveal who we are as a man or a woman and as a sensual living human being.  When our sexuality is working reasonably well, when our needs and desires fit comfortably within an established society norm, then sexuality seems to occupy a rather minor part of our daily living experiences.  When we feel emotionally connected, intimate with a partner we love, and we feel sexually content, then sexuality seems to not be such a big deal, but simply a part of life.

When our sexuality is not working well, it can become our number one priority, interfering with and even destroying our relationships, business pursuits, financial assets, and more.  When we have an apparent sexual dysfunction, when our sexual desires and behaviors do not fit the norm, when we are abusing or being abused by others, or when we feel frustrated, unsatisfied, and misunderstood, reawakening our capacity for intimacy and getting a handle on our sexuality can be essential for healthy living.

Each professional sexologist speaking on the Sexual Reawakening Summit will provide insights, information, research, or some valuable tips and suggestions for healing, improving, and enjoying intimate sexuality.  Sexuality seems to appear everywhere in the media, helping companies to sell all sorts of products and services. However, when it comes to understanding and healing the real sexual problems and concerns of real men and women, professional sexologists can provide the help that is needed.
