Understanding our sexuality, and our partner’s, may feel like a confusing and daunting task. Our sexuality is often influenced by cultural programming, issues of shame and any number of other factors. Listen to today’s show to better understand your sexuality, what you desire and the tools to communicate these things with your partner.
