A client of mine (we’ll call her “Amy”) who has been working on feeling more comfortable and confident in her sexuality broke into a beaming smile as she exclaimed, “Liz, you’ll be so proud of me!” She recounted a moment from a few days prior when she caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror. […]

Discussing your sexual desires isn’t as easy as, say, voicing your preferences for dinner. It’s incredibly common to experience a veil of hesitation around the topic. Sex/sexuality is such a personal aspect of our most vulnerable selves. We start learning to be private about it from the time we can talk. If this is what […]

Having a baby is extremely traumatic for your body. Though it is taxing on your body, most healthcare providers will clear individuals to return to sexual activity at six weeks postpartum.

“What’s the best advice you can give me?”
This was his first question after learning that I’m a sexuality educator. It wasn’t my first time receiving this question, nor the last.

I’ll admit it: I’m a Scrooge Christmas, and the holiday season in general, puts a sour taste in my mouth. The same old holiday music blasting in the overcrowded shopping malls, the endless promotional emails from stores I’ve never been to, the out-the-door lines at the post office. No thank you. I still celebrate Christmas, […]

What are personal boundaries and why are they so important? Personal boundaries are your core, personal values. What you will accept and no accept. What you are willing to do, and not willing to do. They define who you are, and allow you to say “No”, without feeling guilty. They are important because they help […]

Ok, tell the truth… we have all thought about it. Maybe you’re working from home, a little stressed about the future, frustrated with work, and in need of a mental break. You step away from your computer, grab a snack, maybe a cup of coffee, sit down on the couch to browse social media. As […]

Have you ever said to your partner, “not tonight, I’m too tired,” or “I have a headache” to avoid intimacy? Faked an orgasm just to get it over with? Rest assured, you’re not alone. Many of my clients complain about the lack of intimacy in their love life, and a lack of sex drive. While […]

Many of us are familiar with the commonly used phrase “good touch / bad touch” that is taught to children (and adults, too) about how to identify unwanted touch that is categorized as sexual abuse. The purpose of it is something we can all get behind: to equip our children to identify sexual assault and […]

I was one of the many people who thought personal lubricants were only for the “older folks.” As for many of others, lube was sort of my introduction into the whole pleasure products world. It was the first sex product anyone had ever talked to me about. I had heard time and time again from […]

The flag I was trying to sweep under the rug since I was 18… Vaginismus. At 18, I tried penetrative sex with my first boyfriend, but it was like hitting a brick wall! During another couple of attempts, I did my best to relax and some penetration was possible but just a little bit of […]

So what exactly do I do? This is the most common question I receive! Now, I can’t tell you what every sexologist does, but I can tell you what a typical day in my life looks like. Let’s start by breaking it down. A sexologist means a person who studies human sexuality and sexual behavior. […]
