Men's Sexual Trauma
Show Notes

If you have a male partner who avoids sex or gets stuck in his head sometimes during sex or about sex, this episode is for you.  

If you or your partner struggle with what the industry tends to call “sexual dysfunction” - which is so pejorative - I do not like any of the medical terms at all - from erections that don’t start or that don’t stay, to ejaculating before you’d like to, not ejaculation when you’d expect to… This episode is for you.

If you are or your partner is a man who is comfortable with sex as long as he’s in control or in charge, or as long as the attention is on the other person, not on him, this episode will be helpful.

And really for anyone who is a man, cares about a man, or walks through the world among men, I believe this episode is really important because it talks about something we don’t talk about:  and that’s the underreported, underdiscussed epidemic of men’s sexual trauma.

This is such an important episode to me because time and again, my male clients will tell me “I’ve never told anybody about this” or “Nobody explains this the way you just did, and it feels like huge burden has been lifted.”  I’m on a mission to lift that burden, to give that relief, to help as many men as possible to feel seen and understood and that they’re normal and they’re not broken and they’re not alone!  So that’s why we’re going to talk about a couple of key things today:

  1.  What sexual trauma IS and how common it is among men
  2. The ways sexual trauma is inflicted for men
  3.  Ways the conversation is silenced around men’s sexual trauma
  4. Signs that you or a many you love is having a trauma response in the sexual realm
