    Overcoming Critical Body Image Thoughts

    Overcoming Critical Body Image Thoughts

    In our world with its focus on physical perfection, we all have aspects of our body which we criticize, and even avoid looking at in the mirror. These critical thoughts can intrude before, during, and after sex, diminishing our ability to be in the moment with our partner. We talk through this thorny issue as an example of how to begin to address it with your partner.

    Oral Sex -- Do you want it and your partner doesn't?

    Oral Sex -- Do you want it and your partner doesn't?

    Oral sex - you like it. You don’t like it. What works. What doesn’t work. Laurie and George talk about it all. They role play a couple who gets stuck in retaliation - if you don’t go down on me; I won’t go down on you. Then, they demo how a couple might talk to help each other work through their difficulties with oral sex.

    She Needs to Get Ready; He Needs to Get Going

    She Needs to Get Ready; He Needs to Get Going

    She needs more foreplay and he doesn’t wanna lose his erection. Women need a slow patter of arousal to reach the best climax. Men when they’re on sildenafil (viagra, etc.) need to use their erection - soon. This is a familiar dilemma for couples in their 50s. George and Laurie role-play a couple who learns how to talk about this problem.

    Stop the Toxic Sex Cycle: Blame and Forget

    Stop the Toxic Sex Cycle: Blame and Forget

    Libido is shared between the couple. The pursuer afraid of being rejected, almost starts every initiation with an edge of criticism. So the sexual moment starts the partner off without even being given much of a chance at feeling desire. In our case example, she’s not turned on because she hears the edge and then she’s blamed. 
    On the flip side is a lack of engagement. The withdrawer can nearly erase the whole idea of sex because it’s safer. But unfortunately this sends the purser a message that they don’t care.
    And send the pursuer the whole responsibility for the sexual relationship.

    The Cycles - Summarized and Explained

    The Cycles - Summarized and Explained

    In most of our episodes, we use the emotional and sexual cycles to bring coherence to the issues that plague committed relationships. We wanted to explore and summarize the emotional and sexual cycles in one condensed episode. Many couples feel like they are facing unique, specific troubles, when the reality is, these relational upsets are all manifestations of the underlying sexual and emotional cycles. A clear understanding of how these cycles power your relational upsets provides an avenue for hope and change; rather than dealing with hundreds of different issues, you and your partner can team up to clarify the cycles and understand your partner better.

authentic beast ,

My fave podcast. Real ways to talk SEX & LTR

Brava! Truthful, professional, and science-based content all of us can use tonight. (And it won’t embarrass you to listen! Ok, much...) Tho this is definitely a “straight” pod, the relationship work hits it + the how-our-body-actually-works info is invaluable no matter your age or persuasion. Feedback — how ‘bout we mix up those roleplay names? ... Miguel or Jamal, occasionally, rather than Joe? This is SUCH great work, I’d love it if it would be a tad more inclusive, ethnically. We know this baby is heard and enjoyed ‘round the planet. Big thanks to hosts & crew. Keep em comin’.

Interesting take on the delicate intimacy tango

Love the analogies. This episode calls both partners out for their contribution to the problem but in a way that identifies the ‘cycle’ as perpetrator, and the couple as co-victims. Has huge merit if both parties can buy into this, the only derailing risk being in not dealing with each one’s own issues (family of origin, abuse, etc.)

Saved my marriage ,

Amazingly Real and Helpful Advice.

This has been the most beneficial podcast. The examples, situations, emotions, and vulnerabilities around relationships and sex are spot on. The advice provided is so supportive of both partners regardless of the situation and continually encourages patience, love, compassion, and support. Hands down the best relationship Podcast available.
