Season 2 Episode 15: Sex: Everything Else Has a Deadline

Have you ever thought to yourself “are we having enough sex?” or maybe you have fallen into a rut where you can recall step-by-step how each time will go because nothing ever changes.

Could anyone else be feeling this way too?

In many relationships we will find difficulties related to our sexuality, including mismatched sex drives, doubts, unspoken desires, and self-esteem issues blending into the bedroom.

Sex is something humans do, but for many women we’ve been socialized to hate our bodies, minimize our desires, and to not talk with our partners about sex.

I was able to sit down this week with a fellow college, Vanessa Marin, to talk all things about sex and intimacy, like what kind of myths about sex women hold, the role of body confidence in our sexuality, the foundations of desire, and what makes sex great.

Vanessa Marin is a licensed psychotherapist specializing in sex therapy. She’s here to help you stop feeling embarrassed about sex and start having way more fun in the bedroom. She has a bachelor’s degree in Human Sexuality and Sociology from Brown University, and a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. She writes for The New York Times, Allure, and Lifehacker, and has been featured in over 1,000 times in major publications like O, The Oprah Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Refinery29, and Real SImple.

Vanessa specializes in online programs that help you transform your sex life from ordinary to extraordinary, all from the comfort and privacy of your own home. Through Courses like The Passion Project: A Couple’s Blueprint To Rediscovering Desire And Reigniting The Spark and Finishing School: Learn How To Orgasm and Orgasm With A Partner, she finds immense joy in spreading the message that we all deserve more from our sex lives.

In this episode, we discuss:
– The common myths and beliefs that women hold around sex
– The foundations of desire and how you can nurture yours
– What makes great sex
– Giving feedback to our partners around our wants and needs
– How much sex people are actually having
