With Australia moving slowly out of lockdown and other parts of the world still in lockdown, I thought this podcast from Dr Justin Lehmiller is something powerful to listen to.
Dr Lehmiller is joined by Dr Lori Brotto and they discuss how the COVID-19 coronavirus is affecting people’s intimate lives.
Some of the questions they answer are:
- What are some effective coping strategies for relieving stress and anxiety in order to pave the way for a more active and fulfilling intimate life during this challenging time?
- How do you successfully navigate singlehood in the era of social distancing?
- Some people under lockdown are in abusive or unhealthy relationships. How can they stay safe and find the help they need?
- What are the potential silver linings of this situation? How can we utilize this time to explore our sexuality and develop a new intimacy with our partners?
This is a great place to start if your ever wanted to work on your intimacy!
