065: Listener Q & A: Non-Existent Sex Lives, ED from Diabetes & Vanilla Partners

Description of the episode

In this episode, our host–Certified Sex Therapist Heather Shannon–tackles listener responses to the question “What Do You Wish Was Better About Your Sex Life?” We had both a college student and a 70-something say their sex-life was non-existent. See what Heather has to say could be going on in that case. Then we have a partner who is having a hard time not taking her boyfriend’s ED personally. Learn what really goes on with ED. We continue the ED thread with someone who hasn’t been able to have penetrative sex with her partner for 11 years due to diabetes–how can she adjust to still feel connected with her husband? And lastly, what do you do when your partner isn’t interested in your kinks?
