Podcast 67: How To Overcome and Cure Sexual Anxiety

Sexual Anxiety Can Be Controlled

Sexual anxiety in marriage

Today we have a special guest Dr. Lindsey Brooks a sex therapist.  I will introduce in a minute.  

Dr. Brooks has her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology, is a certified sex therapist turned sex educator and has been providing therapy since 2005. She is thrilled to now be bringing her knowledge beyond the therapy office into her Sexual Empowerment School where she teaches women how to build their own sexual self-knowledge, develop pleasure-positive mindsets, and learn sexual communication skills through her on-line 8 weeks workshops and resources.

How to overcome sexual anxiety

  1. She shares how developing a Pleasure-positive mindset can be an integral part of wellness. That for women pleasure is ok and welcoming. 
  2. Boundaries- Be clear before hand and discuss what You want, What You will do and what you won’t do. 
  3. Can be hard to separate emotions and sexuality with someone.  This is where hurt feeling and shame and anxiety can be there if you are not on the same emotional page when having sex.
  4. The Messages or script learned from religions, social media or TV and Misinformation have an impact on what we think is right or wrong, good or bad. You are either a good girl or a fun girl.

How to get rid of sexual anxiety

In her 8 week workshop Dr. Lindsey help to rewrite scripts for more of a pleasure mindset. 

  • Normalizing behaviors and emotions involved. 
  • Reframe Shame and what that person enjoys. 
  • Look at your own Values to guide you.  What feels right, . Not fear or shame.

Women deserve pleasure in sex and for it to be mutual and reciprocated, not one sided.
