Eliza Boquin, LMFT and sex therapist; owner of Flowe and Ease Counseling, and Co-Founder of Melanin and Mental Health joins the show today. She and I had a candid conversation about sex, shame, and how that shows up in our intimate relationships. Unresolved sexual shame prevents us from being emotionally close to our partners, unable to enjoy pleasure, and may cause to check out of our relationships mentally. We discuss whether you should “do it anyway” and have sex just to please your partner when you’re not motivated.
