Certified Public Information Sexologist
With new technologies and two way interactive communications available to the average person, education and therapy in Sexology has gone beyond the traditional office practice. Doctors, holistic healers and other professionals in the field of Sexology are relying more on digital communications with remote patients and many more are using social media to broadcast to a broader audience.
The traditional office setting for patients and those seeking therapy in sexual matters are finding themselves going to the internet to follow “influencers” or view online videos of experts in the profession. Those in the profession who dispense advice, education, post messages to threads, publish digital articles, blog or vlog are having issues verifying their education and authenticity as a expert in the field. With the latest trend of Twitter “un-blue checking” individuals and other social media “deplatforming” or “shadowbanning” experts in the field talking about sex, something needed to be done.
