On today’s show, Emily is joined by therapist and author Sarah Brokaw, host of the podcast Shared Secrets to talk about the ups and downs of relationships and the dynamics between couples.
Who says you need to go out to a fancy restaurant for an overpriced meal to show your true love what they mean to you on Valentine’s Day? Skip the usual Valentine’s crowd and make a reservation for you and your partner at the one place you know there won’t be a crowd: home.
When it comes to gifts, everyone knows that it’s the thought that counts, and getting a little creative is the best way to do that. This Valentine’s Day, don’t just buy your love something and be done with it, make it the inspiration of the night! Have a night of sensation, of exploration, of fantasy.
Back in December, we here at Sex With Emily, asked you all to reflect on your sex life over the past year to see what you liked, what you didn’t, and what you could do to change things for the better. Then, we wanted to know what steps you were going to take to make sure 2018 was the year you became the best lover yet – with a partner and with yourself. Of course, we also made pledges of our own.
Hey, you. Yes, you—exhausted, resentful, sexless mom of three, I’m talking to you.
I know. There’s magenta Sharpie on the wall, a 3-inch layer of dog hair on the floor, and you just stepped on something slimy that you think was cheese (you’ll check it later). You haven’t had a haircut (other than when you took the scissors to your own hair) in eight months and your feet are so calloused, you could run the Kentucky Derby and no one would look twice. Every part of that is true.
But we need to talk about just one thing: the sexless part. Keep reading.
