Wendy is joined by renowned relationship therapist Marty Klein as they discuss our culture's obsession and complication of sex. Listen as they engage in a fascinating discussion about widening the conversation of how we ended up in this place in our relationship with sex and how our anxiety and assumptions, often made in adolescence, affect our relationships, sexual lives and self esteem.
Connect with Marty Klein, Ph. D
Dr. Marty Klein has been a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Certified Sex Therapist for over 35 years. He has focused his entire career toward a single set of goals: telling the truth about sexuality, helping people feel sexually adequate & powerful, and supporting the healthy sexual & intimate expression and exploration of women & men. He pursues his goal of a sexually enlightened world through therapy, lectures, writing, lobbying, media, and courtroom work.
Known and respected by his colleagues, Marty has been elected a national board member of the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality. Marty has also been honored by the California Association of Marriage & Family Therapists. His book “America’s War On Sex” was honored as Book of the Year by the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, & Therapists. As a clinician, Marty works each week with men, women, and couples who have a variety of sexual and non-sexual difficulties–some 40,000 sessions since 1980. He also provides consultations to other therapists, and supervises their cases. Marty has a profound understanding of the incredible diversity of human sexuality and intimacy, whether expressed through BDSM, polyamory, “kink,” or more traditional forms. That’s why he gets referrals from dozens of Bay Area urologists, gynecologists, endocrinologists, psychiatrists, and other physicians and psychologists every year.
