A group of French intellectuals have come under fire from feminists over a magazine petition in which several high-profile male journalists, commentators and actors demanded the right to visit sex-workers, The Guardian reported October 30th. The article, “French intellectuals under fire after demanding right to visit sex-workers,” noted that the petition was aimed at countering the government's proposals to criminalise anyone who pays for sex in France. However, the fact that the men's petition on prostitution was deliberately titled "the manifesto of the 343 bastards" sparked fury from some women's groups and MPs.

Following this, Yourwellness Magazine took a closer look at attitudes to sex, and explored the possibility of couples speaking to a sex therapist. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘Complementary wellness encompasses different types of therapy, including the talking therapies and sex therapy. This is a form of psychotherapy that deals with the sexual wellbeing of couples or individuals. In recent times, seeing a sex therapist to deal with sexual problems has become less of a taboo subject, fortunately, but it is still not something that is openly talked about, and therefore there are still many unknowns when it comes to this area. Others find it extremely difficult to imagine talking to a professional about such an intimate topic.’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/10/sex-therapist-answer-problems/#sthash.ErBsMSnh.dpuf)

Yourwellness Magazine explained that sex therapists often prescribe specific, structured erotic experiences for the couple to explore together, and then they will provide feedback on this during their sessions and the sex therapist will help them work through any issues that they may be experiencing. Yourwellness Magazine commented that the decision to see a sex therapist is a serious one. Yourwellness Magazine recommended readers to look online for more information before deciding whether to engage the services of such a professional, and to bear in mind that most sex therapists advise couples to see a doctor as well as a therapist, to make sure that the problem is not physiological.
