07 The Libido Issue

Description of the episode

The topic of today’s episode is low libido or sex drive. It’s one of the most common issues that sex therapists see in their practice. Usually, it’s either the partner who doesn’t have much of a libido and you miss feeling connected to it, or you’re totally fine not being connected to your sex drive, but your partner is not. If you find yourself under the dry spell or in a sexless marriage and you wonder what the heck is going on, today I’m going to unpack the most common reasons behind the low libido and what you can do about it.


You’ll hear me often saying that I view sex drive and sexual energy as a life force energy. So, I invite you to get curious about it and check out my Mojo Magic guidebook for low libido at  https://HeatherShannon.co/Freebies
