Dr Lori Beth Bisbey started broadcasting The A to Z of Sex® in October 2016. As the result of an unknown internet issue, 79 early episodes disappeared from podcast providers (though they are all still available on Captivate where all of the episodes live and on atozofsex.com).
We are republishing the episodes to all good podcast providers along with our regular content until all episodes are available. This episode is from June 2017.
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 erotic alphabet one letter at a time. Just a reminder this podcast deals with adult content, so if you don’t have total privacy, you might want to put on your headphones. Today the letter is L and L is for love.
With all of this talk about sex, what about love? How important is love in relationship to sex? Where does love fit in? Is love necessary for good sex?
To help me answer these questions and many more, I’m joined today by Marta has been involved with tech since she left college and a couple of years ago joined to build Desire, a game for couples. Desire game can be as romantic as you want or as spicy as you want, depending on your mood and on what you like in that moment. The game uses gamification to spice up the relationship and bring couples closer creating great memories between them. Desire has currently half million downloads thru iPhone and Android and couples enjoy daring each other.
Today we talked all about love and sex. Self-love came out as the most important in order to create a satisfying sexual relationship. We spoke about love making sex extra spicy and that part of this is as a result of learning people over time. Marta spoke of listening to your partner’s body as being one element that makes sex more intense and that this comes when you love someone. We spoke about polyamory, non-monogamy and monogamy and how love blossoms in all forms of relationships. What’s love got to do with it when it comes to sex? Our consensus was everything – from self-love to the love we have for friends to being in love with our partners.
