131: Communication Tips for a Better Sex Life

Why is talking about sex in our relationships so hard sometimes? Not satisfied in bed? Unhappy with the frequency of sex in your relationship? Do you want to simply spice up your sex life? Sex is a huge part of relationships, and it’s often not talked about at all, or in a productive way. Listen to today’s episode to learn how to talk about sex with your partner and ignite your sex life.

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Learn how to avoid a ‘sexless’ relationship (having sex less than 10 times per year – 1/3 of couples are actually ‘sexless’).
  • Get the tools to have a productive conversation about sex with your partner.
  • The importance of giving your partner a warning that you want to have a sex talk.
  • Understand why it’s critical that the ‘sex talk’ is an ongoing conversation.
  • Learn how to communicate the change in your sex life you want to see in a positive manner.
  • Find out the steps to having the who, what, where, when, why conversation about sex in your relationship and learn how it can help tremendously.

Be attentive to your partner and respond to their needs. This could be a need for help, or a sexual request. It is important to always give a response, even if it is just to let them down softly.

Advice for Newlyweds

Relax with each other. Realize that marriage is a lifelong process and it takes time to enter the ‘real love’ phase where things get smoother.

Advice for Single Listeners

Examine the commitments of the person you are interested in. Have they kept a job for a long period of time? Did they graduate college? If they have a child, do they support them? If they have a pattern of keeping past commitments, they are more likely to be a committed partner.
