What does sexologist do?

A sexologist is a professional who specializes in the study of human sexuality. They are trained in the assessment and treatment of sexual concerns and difficulties. They work with individuals and couples to help them understand and improve their sexual functioning, relationships and overall sexual health.

Sexologists typically have a background in counseling, psychology, or medicine and have completed specialized training in sexual health and therapy. They may also have additional qualifications in areas such as relationship therapy, gender and sexual diversity, and sexual trauma.

The specific duties of a sexologist may include:

  • Assessing and treating sexual concerns and difficulties, such as low libido, sexual pain, premature ejaculation, and erectile dysfunction.
  • Assessing and treating relationship concerns and difficulties, such as communication problems, infidelity, and sexual dissatisfaction
  • Assessing and treating concerns related to gender and sexual diversity, such as gender dysphoria and transgender-related issues
  • Assessing and treating concerns related to sexual trauma, such as sexual abuse and assault
  • Educating individuals and couples on sexual anatomy and function, healthy sexual practices, and the impact of medical conditions and medications on sexual function
  • Providing guidance and support to individuals and couples on how to improve their sexual and relationship satisfaction
  • Conducting research in the field of human sexuality and publishing findings in academic journals

It's worth noting that sexologists may not be medical doctors, so they can not prescribe medication for sexual dysfunctions, but they can refer patients to medical specialists if necessary.
