Content: Professor Michael Perelman’s work has undoubtedly stimulated significant innovations in sex research and therapy. His career journey was inspired by his collaboration with Helen Kaplan back in the 70s, which lasted for 20 years. Kaplan’s work strongly impacted today’s integrated sex therapy, first described by Althof, Leiblum, McCarthy, Rosen, Segraves, and Perelman himself. In 1995, having been appointed Co-Director of the Human Sexuality Program (founded by Helen Kaplan), Perelman refined his mind/body ideas into the well-known Sexual Tipping Point® model (STP). The STP depicts a person’s moment-to-moment sexual response, as regulated by the interaction of their constitutional sexual capacity with biomedical, psychosocial, and cultural determining factors. It is valuable for modeling treatment and can easily be used to explain risks and benefits for patients with sexual disorders.
In this interview by Evie and Francesca, Michael walks us through the evolution of sex therapy during the last 50 years through the eyes of an active witness and agent of change. Michael shares his opinion on what the STP adds to the clinical practice of sexologists, its constant development, how it could be applied across the full spectrum of sexual concerns and disorders, and the most common misinterpretations. Michael also offers his point of view on potential pitfalls therapists should avoid, highlighting the clinical skills that contributed the most to his clinical practice.
