This is my travel blog. One or more times each year I travel to a single country, training local professionals and spending time getting to know the local culture. I blog almost every day on these trips. I’m also an avid photographer, so I include some of my pictures here as well.
When not travelling or working, I pursue my other interests. I’m a serious amateur musician, playing medieval, baroque, and renaissance music on soprano, alto, and tenor recorders. A member of the American Recorder Society and the San Francisco Early Music Society, I play with the South Bay Recorder Society, the Mid-Peninsula Recorder Orchestra, in quartets & duets that meet at my home, and elsewhere. My favorite composers are Vivaldi, Telemann, Bach, and Isaac.
I’m a lifelong stamp collector, which is how I became passionate about history and geography. I now specialize in the postal history of the German colonies and post offices in Africa, Asia, & the Pacific between 1870-1918. My exhibit “Postal History of German Togo, 1870-1918” has won several awards at regional shows.
I thoroughly enjoy films, and typically watch 2 or 3 complete movies every week. I’m also a student of film, especially the period when American movies were censored between 1934-1960. I love the films of John Ford, Alfred Hitchcock, the Coen Brothers, Billy Wilder, Federico Fellini, Howard Hawks, Mel Brooks, David Lean, and Robert Altman.
I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Certified Sex Therapist, and sociologist with a special interest in public policy and sexuality. I’ve written 7 books and hundreds of articles about sexuality, and I’ve published over 200 consecutive monthly issues of Sexual Intelligence. Each year I train thousands of professionals in North America and abroad in clinical skills, human sexuality, and policy issues.
I see men, women, and couples in my Palo Alto office for psychotherapy, couples counseling, and sex therapy. For an appointment, write Klein AT SexEd.org or call 650/773-2425.
My Sexual Intelligence™ blog and monthly electronic newsletter examine the sexual implications of current events, politics, technology, popular culture, and the media. The blog also explores some of the issues raised in my clinical sessions. To see my website, including my blog, speaking schedule, media interviews, and other material, go to http://www.SexEd.org.
