Helping Couples Take the Stress out of Sex

Feel Like It’s Time to Make a Change in Your Sex Life, But Can’t Seem to Find a Way?

This online course for couples may be for you!

Are you in a good relationship but struggling with sex?

Has sex gotten stressful or difficult?

Are you or your partner avoiding sex? 

Based on my new book, this intimacy course is designed to support couples through a process of transforming their sex lives through webinar teaching, structured at home conversations and exercises, and live online office hours for questions and input.

Who is this for?

This is for great couples who wish their sex lives were great, too.

I have designed this course to help great couples—couples just like you—who wish their sex lives were great, too.

What makes you a great couple? When at least some of these apply:

• You are still friends, even best friends. • You manage something well together: you co-parent successfully, you manage your money, or you are cooperative partners in the home. • You can still have fun together. • You have a great relationship, separate from sex. • You can talk about most things. • You share a basic kindness and decency with each other.

This doesn't mean you never quarrel.

This is not to say the two of you never quarrel, or that there aren’t some problems in your relationship. But to get the most out of this book, you will need to have a solid foundation. If you have goodwill, love, and respect but don’t know what to do to address your sex life, this course can help.

But you may need couples counseling first.

If this doesn’t sound like your relationship, though, it may not be time to use this course. John Gottman, a famous researcher of marital stability, writes about what he calls the four horsemen of the apocalypse: defensiveness, stonewalling, contempt, and criticism. These behaviors are good indications of bigger issues in your relationship that will need to be addressed before you can work as a team to tackle your sexual issues. Find a good therapist and get some help, so you can be honest about your issues and learn how to interact as allies. If you do not feel good about the person you are or the person you’re with, it’s going to be difficult to change your situation—because to transform your sex life, it is more effective if you work together.

Frequently Asked Questions

Feel free to email me if your questions aren’t answered here.

What are the dates of the next session?

Webinars will be Monday mornings, 9:30 am Pacific time from January 28 through March 18, 2019. They will be recorded for later viewing.

Office hours will be held on 5 Saturdays at 9:00 am Pacific time and will also be recorded. They will be held on Feb. 16, Feb. 23, Mar. 2, Mar. 16, and Mar. 23,  2019.

What happens in office hours?

Office hours will be held through a private zoom webinar. You can participate anonymously or raise your hand to have your webcam turned on and interact live with me. You can ask any questions you have that arise in the process. You are welcome to submit questions in advance, as well, in order to protect your privacy. I will be there to provide clarification and input. This is not therapy, but my guidance can help you in your process with your partner. These office hours will also be recorded, so you can watch them later if you can’t participate in real time.

Do I need to do this with my partner?
Yes. Because all this material is being presented in just 8 weeks, it’s important that you and your partner are working as a team as you proceed. The book can be used as guidance if you’re doing this on your own.
Is this confidential?
Yes and No. If you participate in live webinars or office hours, you are participating with other people. Because we are working in a group, I cannot guarantee confidentiality. I ask all the participants to respect privacy and not share anything that happens in the course, but I cannot guarantee that. Other than that, your participation is completely private.
Can we do this at our own pace?
Yes. All teaching and office hours will be recorded and available later. However, not keeping up with the course would impact your ability to take advantage of the office hours to get your questions answered and to get input on your individual situation.

The Course Includes

This is an 8-week course, with 8 webinars that can be watched live or at your convenience. The webinars will be offered on Monday mornings at 9:30 am Pacific time but also recorded and available for later viewing. They will be held weekly, from January 28 through March 18, 2019.

There will be 5 online open office hours offered at various times during the course. They will be held on Saturday mornings at 9am Pacific time.

Sex Without Stress Course Testimonials

“Being asked to slow down and explore together our emotional, family, and sexual histories, made it easier for us to be compassionate to ourselves”

“We were able to overcome these feelings by being honest, and I think it actually brought us closer because it made us understand where each of us was coming from during sex”
