ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's opinion on an article regarding the status of sex therapy. The author agrees with the suggestion that sex therapy is an ambiguous term, creating confusion and suspicion in the minds of the public and other professionals regarding the therapy and its practitioners. She suggests the term "Psychosexual Therapy," to rid it of any ambiguity and opines that instead of stopping the certification, as suggested, more training should be imparted to practitioners.
