Health Care Without Shame: A Handbook for the Sexually Diverse and their Caregivers
Too often, people with alternative sexualitites – the gay or lesbian or bisexual, the non-monogamous or kinky – have trouble finding competent, understanding care for their mental and physical health. Now, Dr. Charles Moser – founder of the American College of Sexual Medicine and Health, and one of the nation’s leading authorities on sexuality-related medicine – has created a comprehensive guidebook for anyone who’s ever struggled with the sentence, “Doctor, there’s something I have to tell you...”
Dr. Moser explains how and when to come out to your health care provider, how to protect your confidentiality, how to handle it if a health care provider isn’t understanding about your alternative sexuality, how to deal with sex-related emergencies, and more. He also includes essential information for health care professionals about the health and lifestyle realities of people with alternative sexualities. Vital information for anyone whose sexuality is non-traditional – and for any health care practitioner who wants to provide the best possible care for patients of all descriptions.
