Episode Info:

I invited Jessa to be a guest on the show because I think it’s important to talk about topics that can be hard to talk about.  For women, sex seems to often fall into this category of somewhat “taboo” topics.  I was curious about the courage it takes to work on issues of sexuality, and about how our sexual wellbeing may be related to our overall self-expression and happiness.

Since I let my curiosity drive this show, along with the questions and insights of my clients and community, I wanted to explore sex and how it impacts our lives.  

We talk about:

  • 5 KEY factors that have our sex lives fall apart
  • The sexual avoidance cycle — how to find your way back
  • Sex is primal — so what happens when it’s not going well?
  • Grief, loss, and your sex life
  • Myths about sex
  • Difference between sex and intimacy
  • How are we doing with sex ed these days?
  • #Metoo and consent
