ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's opinion on a discussion about the status of sex therapies. The discussion reportedly had suggested that sex therapies did not occupy a special position and that it was not unique and different from other psychotherapies like cognitive and behavioral therapy. To this, the author replies that there is nothing about the "therapy" part in sex therapy, but it is special because it is related to sex, as the association with sex attaches a unique societal stereotyping.
