Want to have better sex!? If you answered, YES!, then this episode is for you. It turns out that as relationships mature, the sex tends to become less frequent and less passionate. Don’t despair! There are simple steps to help improve your sex life right here in this episode. Listen and learn!

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Why being aware of when you’re aroused and what that feels like is the first step to better sex.
  • Dumb and happy arousal and why it’s important in your relationship.
  • Why women are increasingly less satisfied in bed and what to do about it (hint: smartphones and porn).
  • The importance of taking your time during sex and not simply having the goal of climaxing.
  • Why you should ‘simmer’ and not only get aroused when you are going to have sex.
  • Understanding that everyone is responsible for their own arousal.
  • Learn what ‘lazy sex’ is and how it can help your relationship.
  • And much more!
