Dr. Laura Berman of Oprah fame is the now reigning It Girl of contemporary sex and relationship therapy. She’s got credentials (LCSW, PhD), experience (20 years), the looks and charm of a Goddess (innate), and a TV series (In The Bedroom) on the Oprah Winfrey Network. The show, like Dr. Berman’s books on sexual fitness and pleasure, is a treasure-trove of information for guests and viewers open to suggestion. Guest couples receive a mindful assessment of their challenges in the bedroom (and beyond) by an always professional and reliably wise and sensitive therapist. There’s homework, then follow up, and hopefully success. She shines her light on examples of typical challenges that often wreak havoc on the intimacy shared (or not shared) by couples of all ages and situations.
My husband and I had the good fortune to appear on The Dr. Oz Show with Dr. Berman for the finale of the National Sex Experiment. Dr. Laura (as well as Dr. Oz) are as delightful in person as they are on TV. Learning about relationships and sex, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, has never been this meticulous or easy.
