Solving Sexual Health Issues Once & For All

Often women get pinned with, “drink a glass of wine because it’s really all in your head” when discussing sexual issues. Many people won’t even get to the place where they feel comfortable to discuss problems regarding their intimacy in the first place. Still others will get slapped with a cream or lubricant and told to “chill out.” Today, I have a very special guest, Dr. Bat Sheva Marcus, who has dedicated years of study in the academic world to understanding female sexual dysfunction. Her book Sex Points: Reclaim Your Sex Life with the Revolutionary Point System discusses the unique challenges that women face with their sexual health, particularly after a long long time of living in a male dominated medical field. In the show, she helps people understand that there truly is one or more root medical causes to these issues and revolutionizes the way we look at women’s sexual dysfunction. She discusses topics that are not always in mainstream knowledge like how testosterone is an essential hormone in the female body as well!Dr. Bat Sheva Marcus is a certified sex therapist and the Clinical Director of Maze Women’s Sexual Health, the largest independent sexual health center in the country. She wrote her dissertation on women and vibrator use while earning her Doctor of Philosophy in human sexuality from the Institute of Advanced Study of Human Sexuality. She also has a Master’s in public health from the same institution. She is a licensed social worker with a Master’s degree from Columbia University. Dr. Marcus has worked as the executive director of not-for-profit institutions and corporations, medical practices and laboratories. In addition to being featured in a NY Times article, she is a frequent guest on radio, podcasts and has lectured both nationally and overseas on a wide variety of women’s issues.Connect with her at www.drbatsheva.com
