    Sexual Resources for Couples Healing From Sexual Addiction

     

    VIDEOS:
    • Wendy Maltz, sex therapist/marriage counselor, has a program called Relearning Touch. It was designed for couples in recovery when one partner was sexually abused in childhood, but even if that isn't the case, healing after sexual addiction can be facilitated by this program. Classic sensate focus, from low risk to higher sensuality.

     

     

    • Gottsex, a video program by John and Julie Gottman, teaching "How to make real love, not just impersonal, shallow sex."

     

     

    • OMGYes is a frank, educational, instructional website about female sexuality. For a nominal fee, you receive access to lessons from real women, age 18 - 95 who share about what works and doesn't work to bring them pleasure. This includes non-exploitive video lessons - NOT for everyone or those in early stage recovery, but this can be an excellent resource for those who are ready.
