When Pain Gets in the way of Hot and Healthy Sex
February 13, 2012
Hosted by Jenny Friend, MFT
Physical pain seems to increasingly be one of the reasons people list for not having Hot and Healthy Sex. Sometimes the pain is directly related to their intimate behavior and sometimes its not. Dr. Cindy re-joins us this episode to help us understand more fully why we have some kinds of pain and what we can do about it in addition to or instead of popping pain pills. We’ll be considering pain with an identifiable source as well as less understood pain and exploring medical and emotional/psychological interventions. Call in with questions, comments and the answer of the Sex Organ Question of the week at: 1-866-472-5792.

As a child I was always curious about the way things worked; how the parts went together and meshed with each other. I spent more time than girls usually did under a car, learning about electronics and building things.
As a young adult I had the opportunity to return to school after 10 years ‘in the real world.’ Again my focus was understanding how things worked. This time the questions were about people’s personalities, beliefs, education, experiences and how they mesh in us.
Since I couldn’t seem to find a single program that helped me understand my complex questions, I spent 12 years exploring psychology, sociology, anthropology, and development while earning a Bachelors of Science, a Masters of Education, a Masters in Lifespan Development and a Masters in Counseling.
I did library and experimental research. I observed people in many settings and with different kinds of lifestyles. I talked to them about their lives, sexuality and sexual behavior. I was licensed as a therapist and completed the requirements for certification as a Sexologist in January 2000.
I've practiced as a Sex Therapist since then helping hundreds of individuals and couples, with these and other issues. From this diverse background comes an understanding of potentiality, an ability to see outside the box, and a way of putting people at ease. An alternative perspective allows me to help people see things differently.
