Keely: [00:00:00] So we wanna help guide that and give more information about what sex therapy really is and what sex therapy isn't and hopefully that'll help people make their decisions of what they want.
Melisa: Hi everyone. Welcome back to Queer Relationships Queer Joy.
Keely: Welcome, hello.
Melisa: Hey, Keely.
Keely: Hi Melisa. So we have some updates, um, and today is an episode with you and I, we are just saying how this is in between two, two interviews. And so just our voices today and we're talking. I think the title or how we talk about this is what does a sex therapist sound like or how, what kind of questions do we ask? What is sex therapy really about? We've talked about sex a lot this [00:01:00] year and in other episodes, but we haven't always fully laid down the groundwork, and it's like if someone's coming into sex therapy for the first time, or really how I see it more is if someone is, oh, I've heard about sex therapy. What is sex therapy? What do you talk about?
Melisa: Yeah. Or how do I prepare for sex therapy? You know, for some folks going into therapy with some idea of what you wanna work on, it can be very, very helpful for you and the therapist. So hopefully today's episode gives you some more, um, points that you can reflect on and ideas if you are interested in working with a sex therapist.
Keely: And just what is sex therapy? Yeah.
Melisa: I mean, what is sex really?
