Episode 114: How To Change Your Sexual Mindset

One of the keys to having truly great sex is approaching it with the right mindset. However, this isn’t something that we’re usually taught in sex education, which tends to focus more on the physiology of sex rather than the psychology behind it. So that’s what today’s episode is all about. It’s a compilation (or “cumpilation”) of some of my favorite tips discussed on the show for changing your sexual mindset.

Specifically, we’re going to revisit my interviews with Joan Price (Episode 86), Dr. Jessica O’Reilly (Episode 67), Dr. Jennifer Gunsaullus (Episode 83) and Dr. Emily Jamea (Episode 93). Some of the topics we explore in this show include:

  • The importance of expanding your idea of what sex is.
  • Why it’s important to make sex a multi-sensory experience.
  • How to feel more comfortable and confident in your own skin.
  • How be in the moment during sex.
  • Why we should stop looking at sex as a goal-oriented activity—and instead, just relax and have fun.
