The most common problems facing American couples--of all age groups, straight or gay, married or unmarried--are inhibited sexual desire and discrepancy of sexual desire. Unfortunately, most “remedies,” such as sharing sex fantasies, being verbally explicit during sex, and using porn videos, just make the problem worse, adding embarrassment and hopelessness to an unhappy situation. In this course, we’ll discuss more healthy solutions to adress in the consulting room.
What's Covered in A902 Helping Couples Find Their Sexual Chemistry:
- How committed couples can identify the sexual style that works best for them--complementary (roles are equal and flexible), traditional (one person initiates sex, the other intimacy), emotionally expressive (adventurous and erotic), and best friends (focusing on intimacy and spiritual partnership).
- Specific steps to helping couples find sexual strategies that are congruent with their own preferred style.
- Techniques for working with the specific vulnerabilities of each style that can subvert sexual desire.
- How to identify the different modes of arousal suited to different couples.
