    Room for Two: Soul Expanding Sex (Dave and Carly - Part 2)

    **CLICK HERE TO SUBSCRIBE TO ROOM FOR TWO**

    A few months ago, we posted a full-length Room for Two episode where Jennifer met with Dave and Carly. You can listen to that episode HERE.

    Today we are releasing Dave and Carly’s second meeting with Jennifer.

    In the weeks between their first and second meeting, Dave began showing more genuine interest in Carly and became more protective of their partnership. Carly started to confront her control and punishment towards Dave. The development of both parties resulted in Carly and Dave feeling less resentment towards each other, and Carly feeling greater trust and desire for sexual connection.

    Carly and Dave are now hoping to take their physical relationship to the next level, but find themselves hesitant about the sex they desire. Listen to this full-length Room for Two episode to hear Dr. Finlayson-Fife help Carly and Dave confront their complicated relationship to sexual pleasure.




    This episode is perfect for those who:

    * Feel conflicted about expanding their sexual experiences

    * Have difficulty moving past previous conflicts with their spouse

    * Suffer from "good girl" syndrome or "nice guy" syndrome

    * Crave more novelty in their physical relationship




    This is the second episode of a three-part series. You can listen to the first episode HERE. If you enjoyed this episode, and want to hear more of Davey and Carly's story, SUBSCRIBE to Room for Two today!
