CATCH UP WITH K + L

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, K + L chat about relationships + being single! Lindsey shares what she enjoyed doing before her new relationship, and her appreciation for having a plan on her own terms. They talk about how the physical aspects of relationships change over time, and the differences in what you openly talk about (*cough* BLOW JOBS *cough*) when in a relationship vs. single. K + L also share their plans for Valentine’s Day!

THE INTERVIEW

Today we are live in LA with sexologist, dating expert, and author of The Game of Desire, SHAN BOODY! We are talking sex, relationships, communication, and intimacy. To kick it off, K + L reveal some crazy stories from their past—K before she met Justin, and L during her seven years of singlehood! Once we dive in with Shan, she shares how she got into this field and her passion for making sex education ‘sexy’ versus boring and dry. Shan talks greatly about cultivating the skill of communication, and ways to make sex conversations fun and pleasurable. We explore how our parents, and the way we experienced love growing up, influence our relationships today. Shan unpacks her concept of ‘dating with dominance’ and women being in the driver’s seat of their love lives. We also dive into polyamory, open relationships, and their effect on monogamy – while wrapping it up with some Almost 30 Nation dating stories!

We also talk about:

  • Shan’s yuck vs. yum conversation tactic
  • Balancing working on your relationship vs. allowing it to be
  • Meeting your partner where they are vs. saving them
  • Advocating for your needs in the bedroom
  • The beauty in dating
