How do I talk to my partner about sex or trying something new?

If it was easy to talk about sex, we’d do it all the time. But I promise once you start, it’ll become just as easy as talking about the weather. First, you have to start with a curious, open, and non-judgmental conversation about your sex life. 

“Hey babe, I realize we haven’t talked about our sex life before, and while this might be uncomfortable, I thought we could try out some healthy communication. Dr. Emily says ‘communication is a lubrication.” 

Obviously find your own words, but just start talking. Many couples listen to the podcast together and use it as a book club for their sex life. I understand it’s not easy, so be patient, honest and understand that having healthy sex is a journey, not the destination, and talking about it is the first step.
