Sex carries so much currency in our internal and external landscapes. For many, sexuality is cloaked in shame, fear, or heady expectations that leave us feeling short-changed and disempowered. Fortunately, the tides are shifting with the help of pioneers like Dr. Kate Balestrieri, a sex therapist helping people integrate the physical and emotional components of sex, sexuality, and relationships. 

Sex Therapist and Psychologist, Dr. Kate Balestrieri, Unpacks What it Means to Feel Sexually Embodied & How You Can Support Your Libido in 2022

True sexual embodiment is a journey, not a destination (the same can be said for orgasms). This conversation undresses all the topics you’ve probably been thinking about but were too scared to utter out loud. Krista, Lindsey, and Dr. Kate candidly untangle the narratives surrounding porn, patriarchy, and partnerships while boldly confronting the common intimacy challenges in modern relationships today. 

“We have been conditioned to think that a woman who has some power around her body or sexuality is evil, bad, damaged – and that’s just a narrative that I don’t subscribe to.” – Dr. Kate Balestrieri, Sex Therapist

We also talk about:

  • How the nervous system affects pleasure 
  • Navigating expectations around sex
  • Exploring blocks in partnership
  • Why couples therapy works
  • The spectrum of sex positivity
  • Patriarchy and internalized misogyny 
  • Desire, fetish, and ethical porn
  • Tips for elevating your sexual practice 
  • Processing sexual trauma
