Recently, Allen Bergin in his President's Message in the Spring 1981 AMCAP Newsletter presesnted a statement of his views on sex therapy suggesting that is merely represents "modern sensual technologies" which "too frequently offer sensual substitutes for genuine intimacy" (1981a, p.1). It is our belief thet Dr. Bergin has presented an extreme view which some members may have misinterpreted as an AMCAP position paper rather than an individual's opinion. The authors, having specialized in the treatment of sexual dysfunction as well as in marital therapy, will present an alternative viewpoint on the value and need for sex therapy among LDS couples.
