While it's true that the largest portion of sex life coaching that Betty and I do for our clients surrounds the exciting subject materials, we also are there to coach clients through relationship issues as they pertain to their shared sex life. This is a blog on my most recent session with a couples client we'll call, "Judy and Keith." They gave me permission to discuss these specific sections of their coaching.
There are more individuals “coming out of the closet” to live their sexual truths than ever before in history (well at least it appears that way!). Why? The most obvious reason is that homosexuality is becoming more accepted.
You've pretended that the problems weren't there. You've thought and thought about the troubles in your marriage searching for a solution. You've talked and maybe even argued with your partner about this challenge you face. Maybe you two have stopped talking about your marital problem because it feels too big and impossible to deal with.
The quest to find love is as old as the fairy tales we've read about; knights in shining armor coming to save damsels in distress and a kiss turning a frog into a prince. But alas, if finding love were as easy as reading fairy tales, we'd all be in better shape. The truth is, it's rough out here for various reasons I'll write about at a later date. Why make a challenging situation even harder by erecting the added barriers of race and ethnicity?
YourTango Expert Delaine Moore investigates what's really happening in the bedrooms of divorced and single moms. Are single moms attending to their sexual needs? Are they quietly abstaining or could it be that a revolution of sorts is happening and more moms are having unattached sex than ever?
Question: "I have met a wonderful man but the sex isn’t great and I am wondering how do I approach or discuss it with him without making him feel inadequate and get my own needs met?” – R.G., Calgary AB Answer: Appreciate you writing in A.G with this very important and sensitive question. Matters of the heart are tricky enough, add sex into the mix and it can easily become a minefield.
I know. You’re rolling your eyes and going “puhleeeez, Kim, no more tabloid fodder!”, yes? Well, as you know, I’m all about conscious relating and sometimes the attention given to celebrities making really bad mistakes can become excellent teaching points for what NOT to do. And, this would be the case with the recent news of Kim Kardashian and her “72 day” marriage.
I’m frequently approached with the question “Kim, I really want a man in my life and I just don’t understand why I’m not meeting anyone!?” Attracting a man is not rocket science. Attracting the RIGHT one however can be a little trickier. Most women I coach are dating at a later stage in life – often after long marriages that kept them off the dating scene
Question: “I seem to only be attracted to emotionally unavailable men who resist commitment. I date them then break it off because it’s unhealthy. How do I end this repeating pattern? ” - A.K, Vancouver BC Answer: Thanks for writing in A.K.! I know it’s SO frustrating to have those pesky patterns you can’t seem to shake on your own. No matter what book you read or advice from friends – nothing seems to work, right?
