The number one reason that couples seek sex therapy is because sex has slowed or stopped altogether and it makes them question the viability of their primary long-term relationship. And while changing patterns in sexual dynamics can take time, it is far from hopeless! Most couples are in fact able to find great satisfaction again in their sexual relationships with the right tools.
By taking our own sexual inventories, exploring our interests and preferences, assessing areas of strength and areas for growth, and learning new ways to communicate our needs with our partners, we can create a new narrative in our sexual story. In this class we will explore why sex changes over time in partnerships, why it matters, what you can do about it, and how to keep fun, interesting, fulfilling and sustainable over time.
