In this ep, the brilliant LMFT Shadeen Francis and I explore sexual communication and intimacy: How to get better at it, like how to bridge sexual incompatibility, how to step into what it is we’re actually craving, love in the time of COVID, the difference between fantasy and fetish, and of course, how to discuss all of this with your partner.

Shadeen Francis is a licensed psychotherapist, a media personality, graduate professor, and author whose expertise spans the domains of sex therapy, emotional intelligence, and social justice. She has been featured on platforms like ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and the New York Times to share her unique perspective, and her insights have been printed by Cosmopolitan, MindBodyGreen, Refinery29, Playboy, Nylon magazine, and Tinder Swipelife, among others.

Known for her signature brand of warmth and humor, Shadeen is sought internationally to speak on topics like imposter syndrome, sexual self-esteem, the art of negotiation, and the healing power of orgasms. Combining her love of learning with her background in Neuroscience and radio hosting, she transforms difficult subjects into actionable and engaging conversations. From couples to corporations, her collaborative style leads people to the heart of the issue in order to transform challenges into opportunities for growth.
