Other Resources I Frequently Recommend:
Dr K and Healthy Gamer GG – Dr K on faculty at Harvard in Psychiatry. His focus is the gamer world. He provides really rich mental health information. I especially love how he brings in eastern medicine into his work. I’ve personally learned a lot about meditation watching his videos on Youtube. Click here for his meditation playlist.
A great video by Ilan Stephani talking about why creating safety in the relationship needs to come before any other steps.
Guess what, not everyone has spontaneous sexual desire! You are completely normal if you don’t just get struck by the lightening of sexual desire. Watch this video with Emily Nagoski. Check out her book Come As You Are (and the workbook).
Yes/No/Maybe Sexual Inventory List from Scarleteen.
STI Risk Chart from San Francisco City Clinic
