S3 E1 - How To Talk To Your Partner About Sex

The Loveumentary podcast is back for Season 3!

This season we're 100% dedicated to helping you create a vibrant, fulfilling, connecting sex life. I've invited one of my best friends, Kristin Hodson, LCSW and Certified Sex Therapist to be my cohost.

Together we're going to tackle the most commonly asked questions about sex. In every episode, we'll give you at least one thing you can do TODAY to make your relationship more extraordinary.

We hope you tune in every week... and more importantly, we hope you take action!

Your life can't change, and your marriage won't improve unless you do what's required to get the results you want.

In today's episode, we'll start with the basics. If you want a better sex life, you have to be able to talk about sex. We spent hours putting together an awesome 7-page guide called "How To Talk To Your Partner About Sex." In the guide, we go over mistakes to avoid, and techniques that will help you feel more confident and comfortable.
