- Talk to your children about sex from the time they are born. Start with the anatomically correct terms.
How to Get Your Libidos to Match
- Understand the Sexual Motivation Cycle.
- From 6 months to 2 years in a relationship, you have Spontaneous Desire. Spontaneous Desire is when you can have a thought about sex that gets you easily aroused.
- After the honeymoon phase, we switch over to Responsive Desire. Responsive Desire is when you are neutral. You are open to having sex, and are not trying to avoid it. This is a healthy and normal place to be.
- Make a list of what turns you on and what turns you off. Figure out when you have the most energy.
- Share the list with your partner and figure out the best times to do it.
How to Get Into Alignment
- Protect more of your time and figure our what you need in different moments. Spend time with your friends and family. See who are the faucets and who are the drains of your life. Hangout with more faucets.
