And Confidence Is Important
The confidence she mentions is so important. It’s a theme that runs through my coaching work regardless of platform. You might be surprised how getting a few answers about sex or dating can really transform your outlook and how you interact with other people.
If you’re looking for support around mental heath issues as well as sex or sexuality, online therapy might be for you. Talkspace offers therapy through online chat with the same option for privacy and anonymity as these other platforms.
Angie Gunn is the sexuality expert at Talkspace. She says, “I treat individuals and couples seeking sex therapy and assistance with relationships and pleasure in general. I find that Talkspace is a great outlet for these topics because many individuals struggle with finding confidential and safe places to explore all the parts of themselves. Many therapists lack training in sexuality topics and have discomfort going into depth in much-needed ways. At Talkspace I train and consult with other therapists to support ongoing education and learning, as well as competency in treating complex sexuality concerns.”
All of these platforms have extensive documentation about how they were created, who works for them, and what their mission is. This makes it much easier for you to do your research and determine what kind of support is the best fit for you.
Whatever way you choose to educate yourself and seek support, whether from one of these platforms or another source altogether, don’t hesitate to be a discerning consumer. If information about sex, gender, bodies, or relationships ever feels negative or shaming, that’s a sign you should doubt the source or at least do further research.
Sex should be fun, pleasurable, and meet your personal standards for safety. These days we have more access to information that will help us achieve those goals than ever, we just need to know where to look for it.
