.. has earned the reputation of a sex positive culture. But, has it? Of course, there is gay pride and rip-roaring celebratory confetti throwing motorcycle beer drinking street festivals, but what is really underneath all of rainbow cheer? After living here for almost fifteen years, I have discovered a secret that really is no secret. That secret is that most people even after given full rights, (even a full day or a fully blocked off street) to say, “I’m out and I’m proud”are to some degree still filled with much too much pain and sadness. I’m not just talking about queers here folks. I’m talking straight, gay or whomever. There is a lot of shame in our city and it doesn’t stop south of market. Shame is one of the feelings that is common and comes up in a therapeutic context along with the full spectrum of emotions that come from sharing what your feelings are especially in regards to what is going on sexually with you both personally and in partnership.
