    In this episode of the Intimate Marriage Podcast, Alexandra Stockwell, MD, delves into the shortcomings of traditional sex education and proposes a new paradigm for learning about sexual intimacy.

    164. The Power of Affection and Showing Love to Your Spouse (and how it Benefits your Children)

    In this episode of the Intimate Marriage Podcast, Alexandra Stockwell, MD, explores the profound effect that a loving and intimate parental relationship has on children. Alexandra highlights the naturalness of affection within the family setting, and describes the astonishment of those who have never witnessed such intimacy between their own parents.
    This episode stresses the importance of nurturing the spousal relationship for its own sake and also as a gift to one's children. She also challenges the traditional notion that children should always come first at the expense of the couple's connection. 
     
    Also in this episode:
    A strong marital bond is essential for providing children with a positive model for their future relationships.
    Prioritizing the relationship with your spouse does not detract from your children; rather, it benefits them by demonstrating a healthy, loving partnership.
    Intimacy and affection in front of children, when natural and appropriate, contributes to a nurturing family environment.
    It’s important to find a balance between focusing on your children and nurturing your marital relationship. Doing so supports the healthy development of a child's identity.

    162. The Erotic Path to Freedom: Embracing Sensuality and Vitality in Your Life with Bob Gardner

    162. The Erotic Path to Freedom: Embracing Sensuality and Vitality in Your Life with Bob Gardner

    In this episode of the Intimate Marriage Podcast, Alexandra Stockwell, MD, invites Bob Gardner to share his innovative and intriguing perspective on cultivating passion and aliveness in relationships. Bob shares his transformational journey from enduring years of shame and personal distress to removing the inner shackles and attaining the zenith of inner freedom. His teachings, influenced by the resilient ethos of Russian Cossacks, revolve around alchemizing one's bodily and emotional responses to stress. Bob emphasizes the power of direct experience and the liberation from internal constraints, affirming that freedom is indeed a learnable skill, one that stokes passion for life and relationship.
    Also in this episode: Understanding the separation between one's thoughts and reality is key to experiencing life beyond self-imposed limitations.
    Freedom from internal tensions can be learned and embodied, rather than just tolerated or willed through.
    Bob Gardner explains the significance of training the body and mind to respond calmly to stressful stimuli through rigorous practices.
     
    About Bob Gardner:
    Bob Gardner is the Founder of The Freedom Specialist, a body-based approach to happiness, health, and well-being on auto-pilot. He is also the author of the book Built for Freedom and host of the podcast Alive and Free.
    After 18 years of being trapped in addictive patterns, and on the brink of both divorce and suicide, something inside Bob told him it was not time to quit just yet. So, against the prevailing wisdom that said these problems are permanent, Bob chose to create a way to permanently eliminate them from his life. His body-based, no-nonsense approach to freedom has since helped thousands of people leave their struggles behind and find real freedom and happiness.

    161. Breaking Taboos: Exploring Frequency of Sex in Long-Term Relationships

    161. Breaking Taboos: Exploring Frequency of Sex in Long-Term Relationships

    In this episode of the Intimate Marriage Podcast, Alexandra Stockwell, MD, explores a question that frequently murmurs in the back of many couples' minds: "How often should we be having sex? What’s normal?" With an enlightening approach, Alexandra delves into the complexities underneath this question, offering both men and women advice on how to find the answer that best suits their unique relationship, and desires. She encourages listeners to shift their focus from quantity to quality, emphasizing the importance of creating sexual experiences that both partners look forward to.


    Also in this episode: The "normal" frequency of sex in a marriage is subjective and should be based on mutual satisfaction, not societal expectations.
    Quality of sexual experiences is far more important than frequency although they are deeply interconnected.
    Couples with differing sexual desires should work together to create gratifying experiences, seeking external guidance as needed.
