There's a new update to the Diagnostics and Statistics Manual (DSM) , the official diagnostic guideline for psychologists and psychiatrists.  You may not realize it, but the DSM shapes how medical doctors, mental health professionals, and even the courts treat sex-related issues.  I've got a bunch to say about the changes they've made and the ones I wish they'd make.  Sex addiction, gender identity, and other politically-charged sex issues will be on my agenda and you're invited to listen in or call up live.
