In this episode…
There is often a lot of shame that comes with talking about sex. Am I sexy? Is my libido too high or too low? What if I can’t get my partner to orgasm? What if I can’t climax? Is it too kinky to introduce toys—or not kinky enough?
Amy Baldwin deals with a lot of shame in her work as a sex educator and coach. But, she doesn’t think we should shy away from these intrusive thoughts; in fact, she says that ignoring our insecurities will only cause them to eventually bubble to the surface. Instead, Amy’s advice is to use that shame as a teacher. By embracing these thoughts, you can get to the root of your feelings, free yourself from any restraints, and step into the fullest experience of yourself—in and out of the bedroom.
