    The #1 Sex Life Destroying Habit & How To Fix It

    The #1 Sex Life Destroying Habit & How To Fix It

    All of us have struggles communicating, and these struggles often seep into the bedroom. As sex and couples therapists, we often run into couples who avoid talking about sex and sexual needs. Instead, they defer to an avoidant-style habit that can be a sex life killer: making assumptions. 

    When we make up stories about our partner, it kills the curious drive that creates sexual magic. When we assume our partner knows what we want, we forfeit the possibility of getting our needs met.

    The Shared Trauma of 9/11

    The Shared Trauma of 9/11

    Where were you on 9/11? We all remember. It's been 20 years.
    Most of us were stunned, watching the twin towers fall, but George was with the FDNY rushing to Ground Zero, following his training, following his instinct to get people out of there.
    Listen up as he shares about the worst of times -- the horror of the day and months to come, searching for people who were still alive and finding none. And the best of times -- the support and love that people poured out to the first responders, to their neighbors -- the cohesion of a community and a nation united. "There's value in pain if we face it with others." -- George Faller
    Today, we honor George and all the first responders who ran toward the danger. We send gratitude and peace to Kathy Faller for watching her young husband leave in the midst of chaos, not knowing what would happen and for holding down the fort afterwards. To both of them, we celebrate that in the midst of fear, they could turn towards each other and find comfort.
    G - we love you! Thank you for your vulnerability in sharing with us.

    Frustrated Pursuers–The Pain of Rejection

    Because sexual Pursuers are usually the sexual initiator, they are often facing rejection. Over time they become anxious about initiating.

Clear and Real Podcast

As a therapist, this is an amazing resource primarily because of the down-to-earth and real language. Very vulnerable and invites dialogue in places that are typically fully of shame and not welcomed.

Saved my relationship

I have health problems and sex can be hard for me, I’m also 35 to my mans 29 years and my drive isn’t not always there. Sex is usually painful because I have interstitial cystitis amongst other things, and I’m not the pursuit but I do understand my man has needs and feels neglected. Listening doesn’t make me feel alone I feel you put things into perspective so instead of making it about my health issues I could see his sexual frustration was equally relevant.
