The Right Way to Have Sex

In this episode...

Is there a right way to have sex?

Everybody thinks they’re doing it wrong or someone else is doing it better. There’s so much shame surrounding sex.

Today on The Soul of Life I speak with two Brooklyn psychologists, Signe Simon and Simone Humphrey about their podcast, LoveLink, founded to help people talk more about sex and love.

We talk about really common reasons people have problems with sexual intimacy, and challenge the traditional norms around penetration and orgasm. Says Simon, “What happens before sex? What happens during sex? What happens after sex? What’s the appetizer, what’s the entrée, what’s the dessert?”

We talk about the power of discovering the difference between arousal and desire.

How are millennials are having sex? Does marriage matter anymore?

Do you feel anxiety about having one partner for the rest of your life?

"A lot of women in heterosexual couples come in and say, “I just don’t really want to have sex. I have really low desire. Something is wrong with me.”
