TalkSex with Gabriela Rosa

Nov 7, 2021

Today's guest is the fabulous Michaela Josephson, a psychologist and sex therapist who focuses on helping couples navigate relationships. In this episode, we discuss ways for partners to deal with differences in libido in a relationship and still feel close and connected through potential discrepancies in desire. 

Michaela asserts that no couple is beyond hope because there are many reasons why sex drive differences may occur in relationships and also many ways to address differences in libido. She also cautions that, while sex is only 15-20% of a relationship, without a healthy sex life the negative ripple effect of a challenge in this area can consume up to 70% of the joy in a relationship. So in this episode, we discuss the many ways you can negotiate your sex life with your partner and how to avoid self-judgment when figuring out how to name your desires.

Listen in to this episode as we talk about how to candidly express your feelings in a way that is well received by your partner and why a little porn research might be just what the doctor ordered.
