Let’s talk about sex baby! Physical intimacy enables us to connect with others, experience an ecstatic moment, and take pleasure in the sensuality of another body. Sex can be the ultimate expression of romantic love, or an emotional roller coaster. For some, it’s a simple tension reliever, used solely to procreate, or just another way of having a good time.

During true sexual intimacy, the adult brain is fully activated and your partner feels valued and desired. You want to give and receive pleasure and sexual satisfaction while achieving a deep emotional connection with your partner.

Intimate connection, however, is largely a matter of state-of-mind and habit. Dissociation during sex is a subject matter that gets little attention. It can be triggered by daily stress to fear of intimacy, insecurity, or trauma. Some define it as sexual disconnection from one’s spouse/partner.
