What is it about men? Why do so many men have such a hard time being present? Where does fear of commitment come from? What makes a man go missing in bed? With all the recent advances in our understanding of female sexual psychology, male sexual psychology remains a confusing realm for clients and therapists alike. This workshop will demonstrate new, cutting-edge approaches to understanding the male erotic mind. You’ll discover how to:
- Help clients understand how the differences between men’s and women’s social and emotional development often play out in heterosexual relationships
- Address the misunderstandings common differences between male and female eroticism can cause for couples
- Explore the ordinary traumas involved in “growing up male,” and how they can get incorporated into a man’s sexual fantasy
- Help clients accept aspects of their partners’ erotic natures that may not fit the conventional script for heterosexual mating
