What we talked about

Erika monologues this week! She talks all about breaking down the expectations of sexuality and intimacy and challenging perfectionism.  What expectations do you have around sexuality and intimacy? We're all vulnerable to thinking there's a way that sex “should” be. Erika encourages us to find value in the imperfect, variable, couple-sex experience.

How do expectations impact your sexual life on your own or with partners? How do we cope when threat systems affect our ability to be sexual and intimate with our partners? Hint: Relaxation is key!

Erika offers a little education into the “5 Purposes of Sex” and the “3 Sexual Arousal Styles”, and reminds us that sex is a part of real life. That's right, they are not separate things. Listen in to hear the rest!
