Sex Spoken Here: Let’s Talk about Gender
Welcome to my virtual therapy room! I am Dr Lori Beth Bisbey and this is Sex Spoken Here. Remember that this podcast deals with adult themes so if you don’t have privacy you might wish to put on your headphones.
Today I am continuing my series about gender. Last week I started my discussion with Melvin Marsh. Today we are continuing that discussion. If you haven’t heard part 1, go on and download it and have a listen.
Melvin Marsh is a practicing medical hypnotherapist in with particular interests in medical hypnosis, phobias, and anxiety. While attending medical school, hypnotherapy was suggested to him to deal with his own anxiety problem caused by a residual medical phobia. As hypnotherapy started to relieve the symptoms, he realized he could use hypnosis to help his future patients. Eventually, he left medical school to pursue studies at HMI College of Hypnotherapy where he graduated with honors. He became a certified hypnotherapist under the strict guidelines of the Hypnotherapist’s Union Local 472 AFL-CIO, the strictest certifying agency in the United States requiring an additional 80 clinical hours over that of the National Guild.
Melvin has been interviewed by top podcasts, including being interviewed by the famous Adam Eason of Hypnosis Weekly and is much in demand as a speaker and teacher.
We started by finishing our talk about screening and therapy prior to transitioning and the number of people who have second thoughts and return to their original gender.
We moved on to the difficulties involved in dating and talked about when it is appropriate to tell someone that you are trans (as soon as possible says Melvin). We spoke about the effects of transition on sexuality and the fact that sometimes sexual orientation changes and other times it does not so nothing can be assumed. We talked anatomy and the changes that happy for FTM transsexuals.
We spoke about the different ways people like to have sex, the importance of getting pronouns correct but the recognition that honest mistakes are usually quickly forgiven.
We spoke about how awful it is when someone repeatedly chooses to address a person incorrectly and how invalidating that is.
