Seattle Sex Therapist Debunks Modern Myths of Sex and Porn "Addiction" With 'Sex-Positive' Website for Puget Sound Couples and Singles

SEATTLE, WA and POULSBO, WA--(Marketwired - Feb 6, 2014) - Tiger Woods, Bill Clinton and Anthony Wiener are not "sex addicts," contrary to what millions of Americans have been told in TV and tabloid reports. To listen to the so-called "sex addiction" experts, these public figures have succumbed to their most primitive desires by uncontrollable forces.

Indeed, the same charges have been leveled against the average male -- young or old -- and even some women -- in relation to pornography. The claim is that viewing pornography on the Internet leads to affairs, prostitution and other addictions.

Dr. Roger Libby, the renowned Seattle sex therapist, board-certified sexologist, Puget Sound couples counselor and pioneering sex researcher, who was the first to use the term "Sex Positive" in his acclaimed college textbook, has prepared something special for those who want to learn more. In time for Valentine's Day 2014, Libby has given Puget Sound Couples a heart-felt gift, a uniquely informative Website that explains what it means to be 'Sex Positive' in print, podcast and video form

DrRogerLibby.com is home to straight talk instead of double-talk about the misconceptions concerning sex in our society today. From the constant advertising barrage over "male enhancement," to the disturbing international trends of countries that ban or repress sexuality and human rights.

Dr. Libby points out that the notion of sex and porn "addiction" has been soundly rejected by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders for good reason. The Seattle sex expert who has appeared on countless television talk shows like Oprah Winfrey (twice) explains that you cannot be addicted to yourself. Unlike alcohol and drugs, sex is part of us.

Dr. Libby sees many Northwesterners in his Seattle and Poulsbo, WA offices. But instead of shaming clients into feeling guilty about normal sexual desires and behaviors, he employs cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to help those who are out of balance about sex to get back into a healthier equilibrium.

His practice -- and his blog, dubbed Sound Sex Therapy at www.drrogerlibby.com/sound-sex-therapy-blog -- offer a more uplifting outlook for his clients. A sex therapy video gallery of educational, two-minute videos covers the nature of sound sex therapy, affairs, obsessive-compulsive behaviors and how to deal quickly and effectively with sexual problems, explaining his rational views.

Unlike many therapists, Dr. Libby uses humor to balance the typically serious and boring approach to sex taken by sex addiction counselors and some of the media. He views sex as intimate fun, rather than a duty or one more thing to check off our to do list.
