Tips from Boston Sex Therapist Dr. Aline Zoldbrod
How our parents viewed and talked about sex and sexuality when we were children has a great effect on how we view and feel about sex in our relationships.
When was the last time you saw a movie about someone like you, which portrayed people who live in a house that is similar to yours?" asks Dr. Zoldbrod. The unrealistic expectations about sex, body image, and more can affect your sex life big time.
Is there distance in your relationship? You love your partner, you're committed, and you aren't fighting, but still there's a disconnect?
Sexual problems come in all shapes and sizes, from anxiety to trauma to medical issues to low libido. Each type of sexual issue must be addressed differently, and by a trained professional.
Do you get enough exercise? Most Americans don't! But did you know a lack of physical activity will negatively affect your sex drive? Want to know what to do about it?
Do you feel comfortable asking for what you want in the bedroom? It's important that you do!
Erectile dysfunction (ED) can affect men of any age, but mainly affects older men. Sometimes men don't seek help or want to talk about it, and it stems from our society's "man rules" which suggest suppressing fear and anxiety.
Does your man suffer from low libido? Don't hide in the shadows - shine some light on him! What's that mean?
Did you know that laughing during sex is a great indicator of a healthy romance? In this study, over 40,000 Americans were surveyed about their relationships and the results are amazing!
Do you wind up hurting your partner with your words or actions? Have they hurt you? Forgiveness is an important aspect of healthy relationships, and if not practiced when appropriate then resentment can build.
Resentment can poison your relationship. It's not good to sweep it under the rug and try to forget about it…the feelings will still be there!
