I see many people coming into my practice because one partner has kinky desires and the other partner doesn’t like it. On this episode of the Sexology Podcast I’m joined by Dr. Cat Meyer to talk about BDSM, how to approach conversations regarding your preferences, and how to navigate BDSM if your partner is into it, but you aren’t.
It’s quite possible that people may have an aversion to other’s erotic templates. It’s important to fully relax into who we are. This may require putting aside your eroticism for the sake of your partners. Sometimes approaching it as a fun exploration can make a huge difference. Enjoy the unfolding. Sex can look different and sexual experiences will more than likely be different with different partners. A therapist can help you navigate and translate if you’re nervous about having a conversation with your partner or confused about how to accurately articulate your desires. It’s common that couples wish they had more support.
