Having sex is not as straight forward as it may seem, especially in long term relationships. Our personal sexual history, combined with another individual’s personal sexual history, can make things quite complicated! Listen to today’s show to learn how to navigate the sexual challenges that can arise in a relationship.

In this episode, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • How to deal with desire discrepancy and communicate in the most productive ways possible
  • Understanding the deeper reasons that you want sex in the first place
  • Becoming embodied in order to have better, more enjoyable sex
  • Experimenting with power dynamics in the bedroom
  • How to deal with bad sex
  • And much more!

Dr. Marianne Brandon is a clinical psychologist, author, and certified sex therapist with over 20 years experience helping adults create more satisfying intimate relationships.
