Forbidden Dark Places – Shame & The Sexual Cycle
Within the sexual cycle, shame takes many forms. We might feel shame over what we've done, things that have been done to us, or over our desires and fantasies. If one partner brings up a new sex act and their partner has a disgusted reaction, it can create deep shame for even bringing it up or disgust at one's self for having "such" ideas, further fueling the shame cycle.
How do we close the gap and find attunement within this mismatched experience? Listen to Laurie and George roleplay these conversations.
All The Feels – Sharing 5 Primary Emotions with Your Partner
5 primary emotions: joy, fear, anger, sadness, shame, and disgust – feeling all of them is important, especially with your partner. Emotions are the language of the body. They say, "pay attention, something's happening!" But so often we don't pay attention, choosing, consciously or unconsciously, to disconnect.
While there are many tools we can use to rewrite the script, in this episode we're going to talk about co-regulation and co-creation ("CoCo") And learn how to share and navigate emotions togethe
The 3 Roads of Connection – Is Your Relationship On the Right Path?
Let's use the 3 road analogy to discuss the sexual and emotional cycles: the High, Middle, and Low Roads. Research highlights the importance of navigating all three roads for relationship success. The question is, how do we navigate them?
Balancing all three roads within your relationship will require a conversation that isn’t for the faint of heart.
We’re putting all the pieces together in 5 exercises that will challenge your relationship and open the door to communication.
Script For A Sexual Breakthrough!
EFT walks couples through a de-escalation process, but what sets EFT apart is Stage Two. The second stage focuses not on “what’s wrong” but on making things right in the relationship.
In stage two, couples learn to replace the negative cycle with a positive. They create “new moves.” The script in this episode is about compassionately sharing and accepting each other’s needs.
By integrating these new moves into your relationship through better communication, you can continue to grow in sex
5 Sexual Initiation Styles – Which Turns You On?
How do you initiate in the bedroom? ;) George and Laurie explore (and joke!) about 5 different initiator styles: Seduction, Touch, Emotional Connection, Sex Talk and Power Play.
Which way do you like it best? Which way does your partner like it best? Does seduction begin with the way you drink your coffee in the morning like it does with Laurie? Are you missing each other because of a style difference?
The Yin and Yang of Sexual Energy
This episode is all about finding balance in Yin, Yang, and sex.
Combining Yin and Yang in the bedroom requires honoring our evolving natures. The balance is ever-changing because people are ever-changing. In the bedroom, that means honoring and asking, “Where am I now? Where is my partner now? What do I want now?”
Both Yin and Yang are needed for our sex lives to flourish. Partners in relationships can both be dominant in one type, but we most often see opposites attract.
AMAZING!!! I find myself sending podcasts to my friends. I am a loyal listener, you can always find a podcast that you can relate to from your past, your present and maybe your future. Keep up the AMAZING work and thank you for the knowledge and help.
I love listening. I do find G a bit too shallow, and his voice is annoying.
My boyfriend and I are always looking for ways to grow our relationship. This podcast really helps us to talk and approach awkward topics in a fun way. Love the two hosts, they are a great pair!
