This research ties into the wider debate how sex should be managed in the therapeutic space. A recent NHS campaign "Sex. Worth talking about" (2009) is urging patients to take their concerns regrading sexual functioning to their treating clinician. Indeed, talking about sexual concerns should be a routine component of clinicians' interaction with clients as most psychotropic medication affects sexual function and many mental health difficulties affect clients' ability to be intimate. Clinicians should be able to create environments where clients feel comfortable discussing their concerns even if they are sexual in nature. However clinicians remain to struggle to address their client's sexual concerns which comes hardly as a surprise as training about sexual issues remains to be largely side lined in most therapeutic training courses and sexual difficulties remain to be seen as the specialism of sex therapists.
Psychologists and therapists need to move clinical practice forward and seek to overcome social barriers in therapeutic practice. This research is examining how sex is managed by therapists and to what extent professionals who have been trained to work with the public therapeutically are more able to draw on transgressive cultural ideas that professionals who have not.
