Episode 155: New Year's Resolutions for the Best Sex of Your Life

The end of another year is rapidly approaching, and that means a lot of people are soon going to start making resolutions for self-improvement. Oftentimes, those resolutions revolve around improving one’s physical health through exercise and diet, or bettering one’s mental health through finding better work-life balance or setting new boundaries. However, as you ponder your own resolutions for the new year, consider resolving to have better sex. With the right set of sexual resolutions, you can start to enjoy the best sex of your life!

I am joined today by Dr. Juliana Hauser, a licensed marriage and family therapist and licensed professional counselor who specializes in relationships, sex, and sexuality. In addition to running a private practice, Dr. Juliana is a nationally known expert in this area whose work has appeared all over in the media. Some of the topics we discuss include:

  • What are some practical things people can do to develop a greater sense of sexual empowerment?
  • What are some resolutions people can make to improve their physical, mental, and emotional well-being that can also boost sexual performance and sexual satisfaction, too?
  • How can partners break out of sexual routines and introduce more novelty into their sex lives in the new year?
  • How can you learn to be more “present” during sex so that you can fully enjoy the experience?
  • What does a “sex plan” involve, and how could you benefit from developing your own sex plan?
  • Are there any sexual resolutions you shouldn’t make that might be counterproductive?
