    How Do I Talk to My Partner About Sex? with Shaun Galanos

    How Do I Talk to My Partner About Sex? with Shaun Galanos

    We’re going to have “the talk” — except this time, it’s the full version. We know about the birds and the bees, but when it comes to talking about what we want (and need) in the bedroom, a lot of us avoid that conversation. But you know who doesn’t? A love coach. Shaun Galanos is host of “The Love Drive,” a popular podcast about love, sex and authenticity. He also provides sessions and coaching on various aspects of love and life. This week, Shaun teaches us how to have an open and honest conversation about sex and intimacy with our partners.

Ms Danielle is awesome

Loved the first episode. While I can’t relate to being divorced / married / having children I loved hearing how Ms Danielle navigated this incredibly difficult time and I appreciate her honesty and humour! Can’t wait for the next episode.
