In this episode, sex therapist Dylan Davies and I discuss how partners can improve their communication about sex, pave the way to increased desire, more and better sex, and deeper emotional intimacy. You’ll learn how to preserve eroticism in your relationship, how to conjure up desire, and hear about Dylan’s favorite phrases for making sex more interesting. We’ll also debunk some common myths about sexual communication.

Additionally, she enjoys helping couples cultivate and refine the art of eroticism in their relationships. Her mission is to help her clients explore the paradoxes of sex and intimacy, prioritize pleasure and create more vitality in their lives – in and out of the bedroom.
