In the last episode of Monocurious we interview Tory and Jackson, a couple living in at Lightning Society, a co-living residence and event space in Brooklyn. Today Tory and Jackson give us a crash course on non-sexual intimacy. Tory tells us why she decided to remain single for most of her twenties, focusing on her independence and building intimate friendships. Jackson, on the other hand, fell into one monogamous relationship after the other, and often felt he lost himself in them. But meeting Tory helped him realize that they could maintain their independence by having their non-sexual needs met by a community of friends. Today's conversation shows how solid and special their relationship is because they don't rely completely on each other for all of their needs. The Monocurious miniseries explores the question: What does monogamy look like in the 21st century? Our relationship dynamics are shifting. Even for people choosing to remain exclusive, monogamy doesn't look like it used to. Subscribe to the podcast to listen to 3 episodes where you'll hear from people who are consciously choosing monogamy instead of blindly following convention.

I sat down with Dr. Tina Sellers about the unfortunate legacy Christianity has with Sexual Shame. With both of us having backgrounds in faith traditions, I believe we share a distress that certain religious communities can't seem to find more sex-positive and effective approaches to such an important part of the human experience. We discussed the history and ramifications of sexual shame and some approaches people may find helpful in reframing these things in their lives.  Dr. Tina Schermer Sellers is a licensed sex and gender feminist psychotherapist, best-selling author, researcher, emeriti professor, and media personality whose expertise spans sex therapy, spiritual intimacy, parenting, medicine, and social justice. Her revolutionary perspectives have been expressed on platforms such as “Spirituality & Health,” “Refinery 29,” “Vocal,” “Medium,” and “Bust Magazines,” along with many podcast, radio, news, and TV outlets. Known for exposing the impact of patriarchy and sexual shame on our ability to securely attach to our partners, and instruct our children to attach to theirs, Dr. Sellers' book, “Sex, God, & the Conservative Church – Erasing Shame from Sexual Intimacy,” has had a global impact. Her latest book, “Shameless Parenting – Everything You Need to Raise Shame-free, Confident, Kids and Heal Your Shame Too!” was a New Release Bestseller in eight categories. She speaks throughout the world on how to heal, and how to raise shame-free relationally confident children. In 2015, Dr. Sellers left her academic position of 28 years to found the Northwest Institute on Intimacy, a post-graduate institute to train psychotherapists, educators, clergy, and physicians in sexual health and understanding their sexual biases. Most do not realize that these professionals do not get sexual health training in graduate school. Since our ability to do pleasure and connection is core to our happiness, it is critical that all professionals serving public health and wellness receive this training.  Dr. Tina can be followed on Instagram @DrTinaShameless.   Please consider donating to keep this podcast going at natashahelfer.com.

As you know, every year or so we do a 7 day sex challenge where we challenge couples to have sexual intimacy for 7 days in a row, and then share their experiences. We call it a "challenge" because it is a challenge to have sexual intimacy for 7 days even when both of you are committed to doing it.In this episode, Nick and Amy discuss the results of the 7 day sex challenge, if they were able to complete it,  and the impact it had on their relationship.

About 10% of all women have never had an orgasm. And more than 80% of women cannot have an orgasm from intercourse alone. Bottom line, it is hard for many women to orgasm.For women who have never experienced an orgasm, or have a hard time having one, sex can feel like a chore. It can be un-enjoyable and even something they distance themselves from. They may feel guilt, shame or as if something is wrong or broken with them which in turn makes things even more difficult and just creates more pressure and anxiety, and less interest in sexual intimacy.The good new is, nothing is wrong or broken and it doesn't have to be that way. Virtually ALL women can learn to orgasm and enjoy sexual intimacy. Once they learn more about their bodies, how they work, and can remove the barriers that are keeping them from having that amazing experience.In this episode, Nick and Amy talk about the 6 steps to orgasm if you have never had one, or find it very difficult to have one.

In this episode Nick and Amy talk about this and also share the poll answers we received from our audience to find out how others view this as well. We believe sexual intimacy and overall satisfaction in marriage do go hand in hand. Couples that have good sexual intimacy where both spouses are satisfied have good marriages. Couples that have infrequent sexual intimacy are much more likely to feel disconnected and possibly end up in divorce.There is a reason that the at the top cause of divorce is due to sexual intimacy issues (or lack of it) in the relationship.Want to get back the sexual intimacy and connection in your marriage?

116. Is This Toxic Emotional And Sexual Intimacy Game Being Played In Your Marriage?

The Ultimate Intimacy Podcast

We recently did a video on social media for the men titled "the reasons your wife doesn't want to make love to you". We have heard alot of the women state it is because their emotional needs are not being met. In one of the comments from the video, a husband stated: “A man's emotional needs are linked to his wife making love to him, which she won't do unless her emotional needs are met first, Thus the man becomes responsible for his and his wife's emotional needs."This was a powerful statement which caused us to do this podcast, and reflect on this in our marriage as well.Most women want an emotional connection before having a physical connection with their husband. And for most men, they need to have the physical connection before they will feel safe enough for the emotional vulnerability and connection with their wife.So for MANY marriages it looks like this: The wife will withhold sexual intimacy (and sometimes use it as a weapon) as a punishment to try to get the emotional intimacy she wants from her husband. The husband is usually upset and doesn't meet his wife's emotional needs because his wife won't meet the physical needs in the relationship (because a husband needs the physical connection first). Sound familiar? This toxic game is played in many relationships.. and in this game, no one ever wins and the marriage suffers from it, many time ending in divorce. In this episode, we discuss the games that are played and the things couples can do to get both of their needs met.If you haven't already, go check out the Ultimate Intimacy App in the app stores, or at ultimateintimacy.com to find "Ultimate Intimacy" in your marriage.

We have never done a podcast on this topic until now because we never thought it was an issue, but after having several women reach out to us about this, we realized it was more prevalent than we thoughts. Although this episode is geared towards women who have husbands who don't want to have sex, this topic can apply for both spouses.

Throughout our lives, we have many boundaries. These boundaries are in place to establish what is acceptable and not acceptable. In our jobs we have boundaries. We establish boundaries with our kids, our inlaws and other family members. We know what we can and can't do. And there are consequences for crossing those boundaries. The boundaries are there to protect everyone.So why would we not have boundaries in place in our marriage? Our marriages are the most important thing (or they should be) to protect at all costs.We posted a couple videos on social media about boundaries and it is amazing to see some of the comments. People state we are in prison and our marriage doesn't stand a chance. Other people comment on how they allow their spouse to go out with ex boyfriends and be with whomever they want because they trust them. They state that boundaries are just rules to force on someone but it is important to note that boundaries and rules are completely different.So why should we set boundaries together in marriage?What are the differences between rules and boundaries in your marriage?In this episode Nick and Amy discuss the difference between rules, and boundaries and why it is important to set up boundaries TOGETHER as a couple. If boundaries are never established, how would someone know if they are ever crossing the line?This episode will give you some great insight as to why boundaries are so important and we share some of the boundaries we have established in our marriage and how it is provided more freedom in our relationship.If you haven't already, go check out the Ultimate Intimacy App in the app stores, or at ultimateintimacy.com to find "Ultimate Intimacy" in your marriage.

In this week's episode, I'm talking about some of the couples I've worked with who came to me feeling like friends without benefits before we started working together. I'm sharing their stories of how they learned frameworks to help them change from living like roommates to developing an intimate friendship. You'll hear about Jon and Julie, Josh and Emily and Bill and Marsha. Each of them struggled to connect and communicate until they learned certain skills and committed to doing things differently than they were doing before. They needed a neutral third party to point out the dynamics in their relationship they couldn't see themselves. For more information on coaching with me, book a call at: https://secretsofhappilyeverafter.com/apply. For details about the Valentine's Day Romantic Retreat in McCall, Idaho, check out: https://secretsofhappilyeverafter.com/vdayretreat.

Parental Warning: This is not a good episode to listen to with your children.  This topic of having a healthy sexual relationship with your husband while in the trenches of motherhood is one that I have had on my list for months.  I was so excited that Zsanae was not only willing to join me for this conversation, but enthusiastic about the importance of this topic for Christian moms in all seasons of motherhood.Zsanae Miller is a mama to 3 children who are 22, 21, and 14 and is a wealth of wisdom on this topic as she has walked through so many seasons of motherhood.  Sexual intimacy with infants, babies, and toddlers is a unique challenge and I'm so glad to openly talk about that here.  Similarly, Zsanae shares beautifully about the unique challenges with growing teens and young adults as well.
