    Desire After the Wedding Cake – Is Marriage An Anti-Aphrodisiac?

    Desire After the Wedding Cake – Is Marriage An Anti-Aphrodisiac?

    What happens to sexual desire after marriage?
    Everything can change! Men are usually sexually consistent throughout the dating process and marriage. Women, on the other hand, are statistically more likely to switch from sultry to celibate after the wedding cake digests. Even women who were sexually engaged throughout the dating process can fizzle out once they embrace married life.
    For husbands, the switch can be confusing, and so in this episode, we will try to iron out a bit of that confusion by digging into what it is about marriage that dampens sexual desire. 
    Research concludes that in dating and early partnership, what secures a woman emotionally is male sexual desire. 
    Women rely on this primal sense from men that creates a feeling of being wanted. As far-fetched as it sounds, in early partnership, the man’s relative emotional availability is not meaningful in making her feel secure. What makes her feel secure is his sexual desire for her. In short, male desire drives female desire, but unfortunately, desire also has enemies.
    While it’s easy to blame marriage, the byproducts of marriage–time and togetherness–are the real villains.
    Listen as we talk about the real reasons for the shift in desire after marriage!
    “Being desired is the best sexual orgasm for women.” – Meredith Chivers, Canadian sex researcher

    What Does An Orgasm Feel Like? Tips for Talking About the Big 'O'

    What Does An Orgasm Feel Like? Tips for Talking About the Big 'O'

    What does your orgasm feel like? An orgasm is so powerful – It’s almost indescribable! 
    In this episode we talk about how to put words to it! And give you tips on how to talk about orgasms with your partner. Laurie and George also open up about what their own experiences are like… Practicing what we preach – VULNERABILITY!
    If your partner asked you to describe how an orgasm feels in your body, could you do it? Would you do it? 
    It's difficult to find the words to describe the feeling and to explain what the body experiences during sex. Sex is, after all, a non-verbal language. However, that doesn't mean we should resign to remaining non-verbal about sex. Working through the discomfort of such an intimate conversation can improve the quality of our sexual encounters and, subsequently, our romantic connections.
    If you're ready to talk about the big O, we have 5 open-ended questions you can use to keep the conversation flowing smoothly while improving the emotional connection you have with your partner. 
    The conversation isn't meant to put pressure on either of you. The ultimate goal of sex is pleasure and connection, not orgasm. Instead, it's intended to open the door to communication. It's a way to explore how orgasms work and don't work while encouraging intimacy. As the saying goes, "communication is lubrication."

    Why and How to Talk About Our Sexual Past

    Why and How to Talk About Our Sexual Past

    A person’s sexual history is profoundly revealing.
    Those who have attempted to discuss sexual histories with their lover know the conversation can elicit different emotional reactions. It can be awkward to ask your partner about their past or have your partner ask you about your sexual past, but the outcome of braving such a conversation is stronger intimacy.
    Join George and Laurie as they get beyond numbers and into curious questions. Find success in discussing sexual histories, learn about your partner's accelerators and brakes.
    Caveat: use caution if your partner is a jealous person.

    Closing the Orgasm Gap

    Closing the Orgasm Gap

    Not fair. Women have less orgasms than men; Laurie and George talk about the disturbing stats. Why is this happening? Do men still not know how a woman gets aroused and reaches orgasm?

     

    Are we as parents and a culture teaching young women and men about what a female bodies might need?

     

    Women are socialized to give instead of to get. And men are more shaped to get what they need. George volunteers that women also need "fairplay" not just foreplay.

    Pain Points – How To Heal Attachment Injuries Together

    Pain Points – How To Heal Attachment Injuries Together

    How do we heal the pain created by reaching for our person and finding they aren’t there? We’ve all experienced hurt and disappointment in relationships. When a healthy attachment is present, the pain is acknowledged, and you move past it together. However, when there’s an attachment injury, the process of moving forward is blocked...
    Dr. Sue Johnson defines an attachment injury as a “feeling of betrayal or abandonment during a critical time of need.” If our lover isn’t there for us in those moments or doesn’t show up, it’s incredibly painful, and our bodies are smart enough to avoid future pain. 
    The pain we experience in these moments is sent to our limbic system. In response, our limbic system releases stress hormones, alerts our amygdala to danger, and embeds a message in the hippocampus that says, “Do not depend on this person again.” 
    The good news is that it’s never too late to heal an attachment injury! The body and the brain stand outside of time. Our bodies hold memories, and we can go back to them and heal them now. While you can’t change what happened, you can change how you feel about what happened, which can change everything. 
    Let’s talk about HOW to heal these attachment wounds… together.
