FREE Sexual Integration Program

Have you been in sex/porn addiction therapy for a year or more and are still struggling? Do you want to move beyond secrecy and find a way to be honest, confident and shame-free about your sexuality? You might be a candidate for an alternative treatment program called Sexual Integration Theory and Practice. We are inviting 8 participants to this FREE 8 week program. Sessions are 50 minutes scheduled once per week. This program has a value of $800 plus. If someone is experiencing compulsive use of porn or sex, often called porn/sex-addiction, the Sexual Integration approach considers that the behavior may be a symptom of an underlying psychological conflict, not a psychological nor physical addiction. Here are some other possibilities that SITP considers in assessing the client: The core conflict may be the internal psychological struggle the client has about their own sexual desires not matching the moral or religious expectations of partners, family, religion or society. This inner conflict can include feelings of deep shame, confusion, fear of being discovered, or harsh internalized self-judgments condemning their sexual desires.  These sex-negative judgments opposing their authentic [...]

Erotic Archetypes, Symbols & Mythic Sexuality – Lecture Presentation for EUROTAS 2019

A Transpersonal View of the Empowering and Healing Dimensions of Sexual Authenticity Presenting at the 20th Anniversary Conference of the European Association of Transpersonal Psychology, Paris France, Sept 2019 My lecture will demonstrate how embracing one’s authentic sexuality from mainstream to Kink, can lead to a sense of wholeness, empowerment, deep intimacy and ecstatic transcendence of the ordinary realms of consciousness. This implies consensual, negotiated, conscious expressions of one’s sexuality. At the same time, the path to sexual authenticity offers an opportunity, if not a necessity, to untangle decades old internalized shame, fear, trauma, and moral judgments that may resist one’s authentic sexual desire. The path to sexual authenticity runs parallel to the path of sexual healing. Context  The “normal” range of human sexual expression is shifting profoundly. Millions of people around the world have already crossed the thresholds of previous cultural, moral and spiritual norms for acceptable sexual behavior. Millions more stand at their own thresholds, hesitant but eager to cross over. This mass excursion into the full spectrum of Erotic expression is unprecedented in the history of civilization. New relationship styles are emerging, [...]

Helping Client’s Embrace Their Hidden Sexuality – Case Study

A client chooses to explore the depths of her submissive sexual kink after keeping it hidden for decades. Her reluctant "nice guy" fiancé slowly warms to his own dominant counterpart. “It was incredibly empowering… to reveal the secret desires I had hidden away for decades. I finally met this young girl who has been with me, in my fantasies or mythic desire, as you call it, in nearly every orgasm throughout my life…I felt so enlivened, so awakened by the experience.” A client couple was divided by an unbridgeable erotic mismatch at the start of our work together. The woman had intense life-long sexual desires to submit to an aggressive dominant man.  Her partner was taught growing up to treat women with respect and tenderness. During the course of their work with me, her enlivened passion began to wake up the dominant, sexual masculine within her fiancé. Up until this point, he had been the kind, sweet masculine presence he had been raised to be. While this made for a generally easy-going, loving day to day relationship, it also left his partner’s fierce authentic erotic desires [...]

Secret Sex Lives – Why Do We Fear Being Honest About Our Desires

There is a long unending stream of national news reports about politicians, teachers, religious leaders, entertainers, sports figures and other celebrities, caught in some variation of sexual dishonesty. Pundits and experts often label the behaviors, and the fall from grace that follows, the result of sex or porn addiction. These highly publicized celebrity cases point to, but overlook a larger issue of rampant sexual dishonesty that is found at every level of the culture. These cases are just the visible tip of the iceberg of our collective sexual shadow, and the secretive ways we attempt to express our sexuality. Imagine all the rest of the population that are indulging their sexuality in covert ways. The stats are astronomical! My concern is that the current psychological tools used to assess someone as a sex/porn addict, a hypersexual or a sexual deviant, are inadequate and outdated. They do not allow for nor encourage this amazing range of emerging sexuality. Many assessed as having a sexual disorder may simply be men and women who have an alternative sexuality that is outside the range of those doing the assessment. [...]

Innovative Sex Research Explores the Psychological Dynamics of Kink Sexuality

Researchers hope to expand project from 3000 participants to over 10,000 in the next 6 months Dr. Jeremy Thomas and Galen Fous MTP believe their Kink-focused research project, including the largest sex-survey of its kind to date, can help curious individuals as well as psychology professionals, better understand the emerging phenomenon of Kink sexuality. The on-line survey, developed and curated by Fous is completely anonymous for participants. To insure privacy, no personal information is gathered. What is unique is that participants can opt-in afterward through a separate email to receive the compiled responses of all participants. Many participants commented after receiving the results they felt a huge relief to understand they were not alone in what they desired. Dr. Thomas, Director of Gender and Sexuality Studies at Idaho State University and Researcher with the Center for Positive Sexuality (CPS, along with Dr. DJ Williams and  Emily Prior MA, also from the CPS,) are joining Fous to do a scientific analysis of the data gathered from his survey.  Fous hopes to expand the survey from the current level to over 10, 000 participants over the next [...]

Kink-Positive Therapists Monthly Webinar – 8/26, 11AM PT

Are you a therapist, counselor or coach interested in learning Shame-Free Kink-Positive insights and tools to support your clients?   There has been an explosion of Kink sexuality across all levels of society in the last decade. But Kink is a very complex sexuality that requires coming to terms with the sex-negative fear, shaming, trauma, confusion and sexual dishonesty prevalent in our culture. This complexity has left many of the current academic and clinical models of sex therapy and psychology inadequate if not obsolete.   The initial webinar covered the principal concepts of Kink Psychology, Archetypes, Personal Erotic Myths and the 5 Keys to conscious integration of one’s Kink sexuality into their everyday lives. If you are new to Kink and Kink psychology I recommend reviewing this video before attending future webinars. It can be viewed on my youtube channel at https://youtu.be/Nad7AWeRD-g . In this month’s webinar I will review issues I have addressed with singles and couples related to consensual Kink. This would include dealing with a client’s embedded shame, fear and trauma that may resist honest authentic expression of one’s Kink desires. As [...]
