So Tell Me About the Last Time You Had Sex:
Laying Bare and Learning to Repair Our Love Lives


After more than 20 years of doing sex ther­a­py, Dr. Ian Kern­er is a Sher­lock Holmes of the bed­room‚ a sex­u­al detec­tive help­ing indi­vid­u­als and cou­ples solve the mys­tery of their sex­u­al dis­tress: low libido, the inabil­i­ty to per­form, sex­u­al anx­i­eties, erot­ic con­flicts, a secret desire they’re keep­ing from a part­ner (or even them­selves). And just like a detec­tive, one of the first things he does is return to ​“the scene of the crime.” Dur­ing a first ses­sion with a new patient or cou­ple, he always asks: ​“So, tell me about the last time you had sex.”


Ian Kern­er is a licensed psy­chother­a­pist and nation­al­ly rec­og­nized sex­u­al­i­ty coun­selor who spe­cial­izes in sex ther­a­py, cou­ples ther­a­py, and work­ing with indi­vid­u­als on a range of rela­tion­al issues. He is the New York Times best­selling author of She Comes First and many more, focus­ing on heal­ing sex­u­al­i­ty and rela­tion­ships. He is a Clin­i­cal Fel­low of the Amer­i­can Asso­ci­a­tion of Mar­riage and Fam­i­ly Ther­a­pists; cer­ti­fied by the Amer­i­can Asso­ci­a­tion of Sex­u­al­i­ty Edu­ca­tors, Coun­selors, and Ther­a­pists; the Soci­ety for Sex Ther­a­py and Research; and the Insti­tute for Con­tem­po­rary Psy­chother­a­py. He lives with his wife and two sons in NYC.
