On this episode on Let’s Talk About Sex, Mel and I speak about how the polarity between feminine and masculine energy, ignites sexual passion between partners. Learning what your leading energy is and leaning into it, allows you to take your armour off and be authentic. Authenticity is what builds trust in relationships. And it’s only when we feel truly safe with each other that we can experience a deep, playful, sexual bond.
I really want to speak about this with you because the majority of us know what’s like to look at someone we used to be nuts for and feel either nothing towards them, or worse, experience disgust or disappointment.
It’s something we all experience at some point or another, but there’s some unwritten rule that we’re not supposed to talk about it. If we talk about it, we could end up finding out that actually it was just me feeling this way and everyone else is over the moon in their relationships! And that would be down-right humiliating, wouldn’t it?
I’ve never been a fan of bullshit. I’d rather have an honest conversation than talk pleasantries. The reality of commitment is that it takes awareness, ownership and energy, and sometimes we fall out of love even though we really don’t want to! Perhaps if we actually spoke about these things with people who had better suggestions than “Welcome to married life!”, we’d be able to come up with more creative solutions to this interpersonal challenge.
Who’s more outgoing?
Who’s more romantic?
What was our last argument about?
Get to know Pete and I better as we answer a series of questions about ourselves and our relationship!
Imagine two people who are generally bored in their lives. They go to work, watch tv, go to sleep and do the same thing the next day. They cope with life but they don’t actually enjoy it so much. When you ask these people how they are, they reply with something like, “Not bad” or “Insomma”. Now picture these two people having sex.
Did you see boring, mediocre sex?
Shake that vision out of your mind!
I hope this blog post finds you snuggly and protected from the cold wind outside!
I’ve prepared a video about 3 books to read for a more fulfilling family life. The first book focuses on romantic relationships – issues of security, meeting each other’s needs, communication and understanding. The second book discusses connecting with children and teaching them to become self-disciplined by understanding their emotions. The third book is about the Danish tradition of hygge, and how to incorporate it into your life to increase family bonding and individual well-being.
