Dr. Marty Klein has been a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Certified Sex Therapist in Palo Alto, California for 42 years—over 40,000 sessions with individuals and couples.
Marty is the award-winning author of seven books on sexuality, including the ground-breaking Sexual Intelligence. Psychology Today simply says “To improve your sex life, buy this book.” His recent book on the conflict between male porn users and their female mates is called His Porn, Her Pain.
Marty is an outspoken critic of many clinical and popular ideas about sexuality and emotional health. Wikipedia cites him as the foremost critic of the concept of sex addiction. Marty’s Sexual Intelligence blog and YouTube channel are frequently cited as sources of innovative thinking about sexuality, culture, politics, and the media. He recently gave two U.S. Congressional briefings on evidence-based sex education.
Each year Marty trains thousands of physicians, psychologists, and policy-makers across North America, Europe, and Asia—some 40 countries to date. Audiences consistently describe his talks as thought-provoking, practical, and entertaining
