Hi everyone! Welcome to the A to Z of Sex. I’m Dr Lori Beth and I am your host. We are working our way through the sexual alphabet one letter at a time. Today’s letter is I and I is for Intercourse. When talking about sex, intercourse is a word we use for fucking. Intercourse is also used to refer to communication and that is how we will address it here.
Want to know fun–and arousing ways to communicate your sexual needs? Perhaps you want to enliven your “sex-as-usual” with your partner. Or, maybe you are not sure when or if to have sex with a new partner–or agree to do certain sexual things. No worry. Today’s guest Dr. LeslieBeth Wish, has great advice that is tested and tried with thousands of couples she’s counseled.

In this episode we spoke about how important communication is and how to make sexual talk easier by making it fun. Dr Wish talks about having the sex conversation in a restaurant adding an extra layer of excitement or titillation because people around you have no idea what you are talking about. Dr Wish talked about the first two years or so of a relationship you are in arousal mode and so sex drive is high. Once you settle into the relationship, that will die down. It has to we can’t stay in that state forever. To re-invigorate your sex life, you need to bring surprise back. Things cannot continue to be predictable. We talked about ways to breathe new life into the sex life that are easy to try and fun to try. We highlight laughter as being something that brings couples closer.
