Anesthesiologist, sex therapist and sex therapist Ann Althouse knows the importance of being in the right place at the right time, when she can talk to people about their sex lives.
Anesthetists like her are an important part of the healing process, she said, and sex education is an important tool to help people learn about their bodies and their bodies’ role in sex.
Althouse, who specializes in sex therapy, said that the medical profession is evolving with the changing nature of sex.
She said she’s glad she can help people navigate that process, because she knows that’s a key component of sex therapy.
“It’s about getting the right people in the room,” Althouse said.
“When I was teaching, the idea of talking about sex was considered taboo.
People had no idea what sex was.
They didn’t understand that it was about pleasure and about sex.
And I think people now realize that sex is a very important part in human sexuality.”
