Our thoughts and feelings about sex play a huge role in how we approach our clients and the work that we do as sex therapists, not to mention our personal relationships.As a culture, we are exposed to a wide variety of sexual behavior, prejudice, preference, and lifestyle that we are constantly in the process of internalizing and reacting to. As we know, pregnancy brings about a plethora of major changes to the body and mind.Private colleges must provide "Title IX" enforcement of sex crimes in order to receive federal funding.This means that an accused student at a private school has very few rights and can be expelled from the school almost automatically.Students at state schools, colleges and universities have broader rights to defend themselves against rape accusations, but still face a very difficult fight to clear their names and save their academic futures.
