TalkSex with Gabriela Rosa

Nov 28, 2021

We have had many people asking us how to have the sort of difficult conversations around sex that we have been highlighting on the show, so today we're talking with Pejman Hoviatdoost about better sex communication. Pejman is a clinical psychologist whose job revolves around people having successful conversations with each other -- both about sex and about pretty much anything else you can think of. 

Pejman and I agree that communication is the beginning of any sexual relationship, that better sex starts with better communication, and that better communication starts with yourself. So he and I talk about why it is so important not to make assumptions when speaking with your partner about sensitive subjects and the crucial difference between what we mean and what we say. We also talk about why self-awareness is so key to having healthy conversations with your loved ones and what we can do to cultivate our sense of self-awareness.

Listen in as we discuss the disconnect between looking sexually provocative for someone else and having ownership of your sexuality and what to do if you've talked to your partner about sex and nothing changes.
