139: Avoid These Common Sex Life Pitfalls

There can be many areas in our lives and relationships that can cause frustration and disappointment. Your sex life shouldn’t be one of them. Learning how to communicate your needs and desires, understanding your partner’s sex drive and confronting sex life negativity are just a few ways to prevent some of the common troubles many couples run into. Listen to today’s show to prevent these common sex life pitfalls from wreaking havoc on your relationship.

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Learn how to talk about sex, your desires and fantasies with your partner.
  • Avoid getting distracted during sex and become more present for a better experience.
  • Navigate the desire discrepancies in your relationship. Do you or your partner want to have sex more often? There are ways to compromise around this!
  • Understanding your partners sex drive and what ‘gets their motor going’.
  • Confronting any negativity surrounding your sex life.
  • And much more!

Jessa Zimmerman is a licensed sex therapist whose work focuses on helping couples who have a good relationship but who are avoiding sex because it’s become stressful, negative, disappointing or pressured. She teaches, coaches, and supports people as they go through her 9-phase experiential process that allows them real world practice in changing their relationship and their sex life. She is the host of the Better Sex podcast and will be releasing her first book later this year.
