Men & Sex | Fear in Our Sexual Relationships with Women Episode 280, November 25, 2022
My returning guest today is Dr. Avrum Weiss. Dr. Weiss is a psychotherapist, award-winning author, speaker, and teacher. His decade-long work on understanding the inner lives of men culminated with his recently published bestseller “Hidden in Plain Sight: How Men’s Fears of Women Shape Their Intimate Relationships.”
We talk about what a man’s lack of sexual desire means for a relationship and the root causes of that low desire. Learn what men are taught about sex that harms our relationships and how not to see sex as a performance.
Too many men ignore their sexual desires and use sex as validation and reassurance. Sex is about more than making the woman orgasm. Men often get a bad rap as being selfish lovers, but your pleasure does matter.
It’s no wonder there are so many relationship challenges when you hear what women say they learned from their mothers about men.
“Think of foreplay as starting the minute you open your eyes in the morning.”Dr. Avrum Weiss
