Sexual intimacy can be the ultimate physical expression of passionate love, though many people struggle to express their sexual desires with their partner, or avoid engaging in self-pleasure. To help us explore intimacy, self-pleasure and self-love, I am speaking with Sex Therapist and Certified Somatic Sex Educator Stella Anna Sonnenbaum. She helps couples and individuals find more intimacy, connection and pleasure in their lives and relationships. In this episode we discuss the importance of self-pleasure, how to bring more of yourself to your relationship and how to keep a long-term relationship alive and thriving.
