Hosted by Jessica Ford, MA, M.S.W., LCSW
At the beginning of your relationship he couldn’t keep his hand off of you and you felt the same way. A few years, children and various life events later there is a shift and he no longer comes to bed until after you are asleep. He moves away when you touch him. When you do have sex it is good just not too connected. You try and talk to him…you hear everything is fine. You argue with him always wanted to hang out with his friends instead of doing things with you. The strain and tension in the relationship boils over into your daily lives and you find you can’t agree on anything. What’s going on you wonder and you seek help, asking the therapist is he gay. Two amazing guests, Dr. Emily Nagoski, a sex educator and Dr. Joe Kort, a sex therapist join the show to discuss when sexual desire changes…how to understand it and learn to what to do.
