You Want Someone Else
Show Notes

Let me ask you a personal question (or a few). Do you have fantasies about sex with other people? Do you have sometimes active desires to consummate those fantasies? Do you wonder what that means about you or about your partner? I’m going to guess you answered “yes” to at least one of these questions. And you know what? That is all totally okay. Today we're going to talk about your desire for sex with other people and start to dig in to what that could mean for you.

As you listen to this episode, you'll hear about:

  •  Different reasons you might want sex with another person
  • What your desires or fantasies might signal about your needs and how they could actually benefit your relationship
  • What it means you are fantasizing about a specific person or about finding someone new in the abstract
  • Questions to ask yourself about to get to the root of your desire and address it
  • And more.  

E.g. Join the conversation by listening, then share your story or response on our voicemail at 206-659-9865 or inside our free Conscious Couples' Circle on Mighty Networks.


“ I think of sexual fantasies as being like a Pensieve, they show us ourselves. You can see yourself in your desires.”

-Michele Linsenbury Christensen
