ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's opinion on sex therapies and therapists. The author considers that sex therapy is an early form of an innovative attempt to help sexually dysfunctional heterosexual couples and regards the original concept of sex therapy to be far closer to a historical footnote than to a substantial basis of therapy. He mentions how he had to discard his clinical approach and adopt a multiple perspective in his understanding of sexuality.
