World Sexual Health Month is wrapping up! Let’s celebrate – I am Christene Lozano, Certified Sex Therapist. Here to answer your questions. AMA
Update #2 [2:05pm EDT]: Thank you all for your questions and vulnerability in sharing here. Seriously, being truly vulnerable about sex is hard work. I hope the info shared here was helpful - happy to have been of support. So cool to see everyone's interest in sex and sexual health. I won't be taking any additional questions. Continuing to work through the ones posted, won't get to them all, unfortunately. Thank you for understanding.
Feel free to sift through the comments in case you find something helpful and to support your fellow Redditors who may be struggling. One of the best parts of hosting this AMA was seeing how kind most people were to each other. Your thoughtfulness can mean so much to the person on the other end of it. Thank you for having me :)
Update #1 [12:05pm EDT]: I'm working my way through your great questions. I won't be taking any additional questions soon to allow time to get through the ones posted. I'll update when I'm no longer taking questions.
Hi there! I’m Christene Lozano, a sex therapist specializing in helping people restore emotional and sexual intimacy. I am a Certified Sex Therapist (CST), Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT), and Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT).
I wanted to hop on Reddit to host my second AMA for World Sexual Health Month. We live in a society and culture in which many people are both obsessed with sex and also embarrassed about it. While sex is abundantly advertised in the media, many feel shame and have difficulty talking about sex. Even talking about it with your long-term partner can be hard. From desire, masturbation, and porn, to sexual intimacy, orgasms, and sexual trauma – you and your questions are welcome here.
Due to the topic of sex being uncomfortable for many, please be kind and considerate when asking questions and commenting. Stay curious and non-judgmental. We are a group of diverse cultures, ethnicities, spirituality backgrounds, sexual orientations, sexual experiences, genders, and so forth. What works for one person may not work for another. We want to keep this space safe for everyone.
*Note to my SA/PA community including partners: Because this AMA will be hosted in the IAmA sub, there will likely be many non-SA/PA questions and comments. Some folks may have sex and relationship questions you find triggering. Please notice if triggers get stirred up for you and practice some healthy self-care.
I’ll be here at 10:00am EDT to answer your sex and relationship questions. AMA.
I may not be able to address every question, and I will edit this post when I am no longer taking questions. Please do not private message me. I will kindly redirect you back to this AMA if I am still taking questions. Thank you for understanding.
