102 :: Mismatched Desire + Sexless Relationships with Stephanie Zuber

Episode Description

I met Stephanie Zuber at an Esther Perel event in NYC in November. The focus was the Masculinity Paradox, and the day was filled with powerful conversations about men, masculinity, sexuality, romance and more. 
Intrigued by the work Stephanie is doing supporting couples and individuals in Ithaca, NY with sex, body and relational matters, and my own recent experience feeling a lack of sexual desire for a partner, it was a no brainer. We had to have a conversation about something many people experience in dating and relating – mismatched desire and sexless relationships. 
Join Stephanie and I for a conversation that will support, inspire and encourage you to create more intimacy and rekindle your desire on Episode 102 of Ignite Intimacy!
