Desire, Intimacy & All the Ways They Influence Our Relationships w/ Annika Cook

Desire is something really normal, but we don’t talk about it and the way intimacy can impact the way we feel about ourselves and the relationships we sustain.

A lot of the things we believe about intimacy and desire could actually work against creating a deeper connection, so how do we shift to something better?

How does desire actually work and how can the connection we have with our bodies influence desire?

In this episode, sex and couples therapist Annika Cook joins me to discuss what desire is, how it impacts our relationships, even the one we have with ourselves.

Obligation kills desire.
