Denver, CO – Our culture is obsessed with sex and yet we still don’t know how to talk about it. According to sex therapist Dr. Rhoda Lipscomb, a healthy outlook and expression of our sexuality can have an amazingly beneficial influence on our lives.

“When people would say, ‘We don’t talk about sex,’ I used to think, “Why not?” says Dr. Lipscomb. “I’m fascinated by how we make such a big deal about sex. We’re going to put a man on Mars but we can’t have an honest discussion about our sexuality.”

Dr. Lipscomb is the founder of Living Life with Passion Counseling Services, a psychotherapy practice that specializes in sex therapy. As a licensed professional counselor, certified sex therapist and clinical sexologist, Dr. Lipscomb’s practice explores the full spectrum of human sexuality, including issues related to sexual function and alternative expressions of sexuality like fetishes.

“Sexuality is often more about our identity than the mechanics of sex,” says Dr. Lipscomb. “It takes a lot of effort to create an environment where people can feel comfortable and safe knowing that whatever they tell me I’m not going to judge them.”

Dr. Lipscomb says whether you have experienced sexual dysfunction, lacked intimacy with your partner or you enjoy dressing up like a baby and wearing diapers, you are still normal. She says even if what a client brings to her isn’t typical, the primary question is, “Is this harming you or anyone else?”

“I have patients ask me if I can cure them. That’s how much shame is associated with our sexuality,” says Dr. Lipscomb. “This is not something you cure. It’s not something that goes away. We’re going to talk about it and explain what it is and what it’s not and how it can work in a healthy manner.
