Episode 67: Resolutions For Better Sex In The New Year

As you ponder your New Year’s resolutions for 2022, think about things you can do to improve your sex life! With the right set of resolutions, you can address problem areas and tap into unfulfilled desires, which will allow you to enjoy the best sex of your life, boost passion in your relationship, and keep the spark burning all year long. Need some inspiration? I have you covered with this episode!

I spoke with Dr. Jessica O’Reilly about sexual New Year’s resolutions. Dr. Jess is a Toronto-based sexologist, author, speaker, and television personality. She is host of the Sex With Dr. Jess Podcast and the Intimately You program on CityTV. She is also the resident sexologist at Astroglide. We cover a lot of ground in this episode, including:

  • Why noisy sex is (usually) better sex, and how to be more vocal in bed if that’s something you don’t have much experience with.
  • How to break sexual routines and suggest new things to try with your partner.
  • Why it’s important to expand your definition of sex.
  • How resolutions to better your physical and mental health can boost your sex life.
  • How to be more “in the moment” during sex.
  • Practical ways to improve your sexual communication skills.
  • Why it’s important to incorporate more non-sexual touch into your relationship, and how this can improve your sex life.
