From a bioenergetic viewpoint, the concepts of shame and sexuality are put in mutual context taking as the point of departure that they mutually influence the organismic energy system and its economy, asking: How can sexuality influence shame? How can shame influence sexual function? How can we deal with shame and sexuality in psychotherapy? Develop-mental issues, energetic and characterological dynamics with therapeutic implications are included.
