Today we’re talking about sex — our own journey as well as our tips and insight into how you can better approach the conversation around sex and intimacy with yourself and your partner. We believe that it’s really important that you get to know yourself and figure out exactly what you need, have the amount of sex your body craves, and be able to connect sexually with your partner through intimate conversations.
We dive deep into our journey through discovering our own sexual preferences, all of the factors (such as outside stressors and emotional influence) that have impacted our sexuality (for better or for worse), and our personal conversations around sex and connecting intimately. We also talk about Sophie’s experience growing up in a sexual society, my first experience with rejection, our past sexual relationships, and our sexual relationship from when we first started dating to now. We also answer some common questions regarding sexuality, as well as questions from some listeners on Twitter!
