Hot Moments in This Episode:
I know that a man who has ambivalence about erotic connection is in a lot of pain, and that his pain and confusion trigger a lot of pain and insecurity in his partner, too. If you’ve been frustrated and hurting about the ways you or your partner pull away from s€x or have conflicting feelings about it, I hope this episode has helped you understand better what has created the tangled dynamics and where you can begin to navigate this fraught territory.
