173: How to Initiate Sex Like a Pro, Featuring James Christensen

by | Feb 9, 2024 | General Posts, Podcast

We recently hit a major milestone with this podcast: 1 million downloads! Thank you for your support!

Let’s be honest here. Initiating sex is not easy at all. We want the other person to take charge and initiate, right? We worry, how are we going to be received? There’s also so much of ourselves wrapped up in what it means to initiate, or not initiate, sex. And past experiences tend to influence our reluctance to initiate as well. Yet, the reality is if one of you doesn’t initiate sex, sex is never going to happen in your relationship. 

So why is initiating sex so hard? What are some common reasons why people, me included, struggle to initiate sex sometimes? How do we get better at this very intimate act of bidding for sexual connection?

I’ve been pondering these questions lately, and I’m grateful to meet up with James Christiansen, a licensed marriage and family therapist from Roseville, California. You’ll quickly find out that he has a brilliant sharp mind and quickly cuts right to the heart of the matter.  

And this episode, we’re going to talk about what’s at the heart of initiating sex, because it gets a lot deeper than what you’re probably thinking. And by the end of this episode, hopefully you’ll take more courageous action to cherish your spouse more than before.
