In order to have a vital, satisfying sex life we need to have a healthy mind-body connection.
What does that mean?
What we put into our bodies, the health of our relationships, and how we view ourselves in relation to the world all need to be taken into consideration.
Sometimes, sexual symptoms emerge that are uncomfortable, painful or dissatisfying and we need to begin the process of unpacking what is underlying those symptoms.
Am I disconnected from my sexuality?
Am I experiencing shame around my sexual desires?
What lifestyle choices have I made that might be affecting my sex life?
Do I have unmet sexual needs?
Does my partner want more sex than I do?
Am I recovering from sexual trauma?
My work as a sex counselor is to assist in the process of untangling those issues to see where healing can happen.
Sitting on the couch and watching Netflix may be snuggly but not necessarily sexy! Sometimes, putting the excitement back into sex can revitalize your sex life. Esther Perel, author of Mating in Captivity says that arousal in a long term relationship must include being adventurous and open to trying new things. If you are in a long-term relationship and your sex life has waned take a workshop, learn new things and spice it up!
