On this episode of the Sexology Podcast, I’m joined by Sari Cooper as we talk about sexual avoidance.
After couples move in together, get married and start to feel like family, it can feel like the flame starts to diminish. This is where the roommate dilemma comes into play. You lose a sense of planning, anticipation and excitement.
Couples actually need some gap, some distance between them in order to see their partner anew. It’s important to see your partner in different ways and from different perspectives to keep things fresh and exciting. Each step, emotion and bit of anticipation fuels the fire is a part of the process.
During this episode, we discuss differentiation, jealousy, distrust and sexual disorders that may contribute to unconscious avoidance of sex.
- Defining sexual avoidance
- Root causes of avoidance in couples
- The period of limerence
- The notion of differentiation
- Distrust manifesting as jealousy
- Sexual disorders that contribute to sexual avoidance
