What is gay sex therapy?
Gay sex therapy can be best described as the process of learning new skills and working through old emotional hurts to help LGBTQ+ people experience more rewarding sexual experiences.
How Our LGBTQ+ & Gay Sex Therapists Can Help
LGBTQ+ people are particularly harmed by society’s frequent messages that their sexuality is gross, weird, or immoral. This false information is often internalized by LGBTQ+ people and can impact our enjoyment and expression of sex.
Perhaps you’ve wondered if your inability to be satisfied means there is something wrong with your sexuality. Maybe you’re concerned you are addicted to online chatting or hookup apps, and that it threatens your ability to commit to someone you care about. You may worry about ruining your relationship, yet you can’t seem to stay away from these temptations.
Our LGBTQ+ sex therapists are experienced to help you with the following:
- How to accept your sexual identity
- How to improve low self-worth or self-acceptance when it comes to sexuality
- How to address and help solve sexual incompatibility
- How to resolve differences in sexual desire
- How to cope or manage with sexual infidelity
- How to manage open relationships when it comes to sex
- How to cope with gay loneliness
- How to address and manage sex addiction or sex compulsion
- How to manage erectile dysfunction
- How to reduce anxiety during sex
- How to manage not being aroused by your partner
Why Choose The Gay Therapy Center?
Our LGBTQ+ sex therapists can help you learn how to talk about sex and feel closer to your partner at the end of the conversation. For example, when someone you love says no to sex, it has an emotional impact. We can help you both process the feelings that come up when this happens: how it feels when a partner doesn’t meet sexual needs, as well as how it feels when you can’t give your partner what they desire.
In our sessions, you will learn how to talk about sex in a productive way and let go of the shame surrounding your sexuality. Our approach is based on the belief that sexually healthy people accept their uniqueness rather than fight it.
Good communication is slow and deliberate, whereas fighting happens “fast,” often with partners quickly saying things that are hurtful or unproductive. We will show you communication techniques built on empathy, deep listening, and decelerated conversations that will enable you both to fully hear each other. We want both of you to be able to talk about sex in a way that brings you closer together, rather than driving you further apart.
In addition to communication skill-building, we may teach you “sensate exercises” to practice outside of therapy sessions that include:
- Non-sexual touching
- Getting in-tune with emotions and sensations
“Working with my therapist has helped more than I knew I needed. I can’t put into words how grateful I am for this experience.”

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Is gay sex therapy expensive?
Good sex and satisfying relationships are major determinants of happiness in life. Our LGBTQ+ sex therapy is an investment in your romantic future, and your ability to connect with others. When something of value experiences difficulties, you invest time and money to get it fixed – relationships are the same way.
Our therapy fees begin at $185 per 50-minute session, and you can find more information about our therapy fees and insurance here.
2. What if I experience further shame in the therapy session?
We already know LGBTQ+ people experience shame. We’ve been there, and we know how to bring about conversations about sexuality in ways that soften feelings of shame that may arise. Ultimately, we strive to create a safe, nonjudgmental atmosphere in which you can be yourself and voice your needs without judgment.
3. What if my LGBTQ+ sexual experience isn’t understood?
This is the primary reason our clinic exclusively has LGBTQ+ sex therapists. We believe that no one quite understands the experiences of LGBTQ+ people and issues tied to sexual identity like other LGBTQ+ people.
