For gay male couples, intimacy has its own challenges. Early shaming about being different in gender role and different in sexual desire fosters defenses which protect the gay man from further exposure but at the same time create a barrier to being fully known. Homophobia and gender role constriction leave scarring hardships that often show up as barriers to intimacy. The good news is in couples therapy we can work through those old defenses to bring you out of the suffocating closet into more full engagement with each other. This is truly liberating work and celebrates the power of your relationship!
