I’m a tiny bit nervous to be sharing this one with you, due to its intimate topic. Yet, I know how important it is to talk clearly and in a supportive way about our own personal sexuality. If you have little ones around you might want to keep this conversation private (use earbuds). Enjoy!
What we Talked About
- Nurturing our sensuality
- Her upbringing and how it influenced the work she is doing today
- The culture of empowerment through beauty and sex
- How she started her sexual wellness business
- How having children can change our intimate relationship with our partner
- How routine and resentment can affect our sensual relationship
- The mental load of parenting
- The importance of identifying where you need support and asking for it
- Making time for yourself and your partner
- Creating relationship check-in and co-creating excitement
- Practicing self-pleasure, keeping your libido healthy and alive
- Reclaiming your bedroom as your romantic space.
