Restore Your Sexual Connection
Feeling disconnected sexually is one of the first signs that a relationship may be heading for trouble. But it can be a difficult topic for couples to address openly, even in marriage counseling. Despite feeling sadness, rejection, pressure, or frustration around sexuality, many couples feel inhibited from discussing it with each other: It just feels too vulnerable.
So they avoid the conversation. Over time, unfortunately, they often become increasingly disconnected — both sexually and emotionally — as a result. Don't let this happen to your relationship. It's time to fearlessly face your sexual relationship, and start having the open conversations that will help not just restore your sex life, but restore the emotional intimacy and positivity to your relationship again.
Be honest: Is your sex life withering? Has it been weeks, months or even years since you and your partner had a meaningful, let alone erotic, sexual experience together? Does sex feel more like another obligation as opposed to a pleasurable point of connection? Are you starting to feel more like room-mates or buddies than lovers?
If so, you're not alone. Many busy, high achieving couples start to lose their sexual connection over time as the “stuff of life” starts taking priority over sexual intimacy. Keeping eroticism and passion alive in long term relationships requires effort and intention, but unfortunately it's one of the easiest things to put off. Many couples let it go for too long, and over time start to experience negative consequences in many different areas of their relationship as a result.
The good news is that intimacy and desire can be restored.
You can have a vibrant, enjoyable sexual connection again. The first step on this journey is educating yourself and learning new ideas that will help you address the core issues affecting most dissatisfying sexual relationships.
On this edition of the Love, Happiness and Success Podcast I'm offering my best advice on how to:
- Stop neglecting your sexual relationship
- Have time and energy to invest in your erotic connection
- Increase your (and / or your partner's) sexual desire
- Use your sexual relationship as a vehicle for personal growth
Listen, and learn how to banish “sexual apathy” from taking over your marriage, and what new research on sexuality and desire shows about how to bring sexual energy back to life — both in yourself, and in your partnership.
I hope this information helps you start to find your way back together again.
