Are You Normal in Bed?
Jean Malpas, director of Ackerman’s Gender and Family Project, was recently interviewed by CNN contributor and sex therapist Ian Kerner in “Are Your Normal in Bed?”
The survey results call into question stereotypes that men compartmentalize sex and emotions, says Jean Malpas, a psychotherapist in New York. “Men are often described as rigidly separating sex and feelings,” he says. “However, many straight, gay or bisexual men I encounter in my clinical practice appreciate meaningful sexual intimacy. They often long for a sexuality anchored in the complicity and playfulness of their romantic relationship.”
