In this episode, our guest Juliette Karaman, a certified mind and body coach specializing in healing, trauma, and navigating body shame, joins us to discuss the decline of intimacy in long-term relationships and strategies to reignite passion and connection. The conversation revolves around the five ways to pleasure, similar to love languages: energetic, sensual, sexual, kinky, and shapeshifter, each representing a unique pleasure archetype.

Key Points:

  • The decline of intimacy in long-term relationships often results from a lack of communication, vulnerability, and prioritizing everyday tasks over quality time together.
  • Taking sex off the table and focusing on emotional connection can help revive intimacy in relationships.
  • There are five different erotic blueprints: energetic, sensual, sexual, kinky, and shapeshifter, each with its own characteristics, desires, and shadow sides.
  • Men may struggle with finding a balance between leading and surrendering in the bedroom.
  • Communication, feedback, and exploration are crucial for a fulfilling sexual experience.
  • Shifting the focus from orgasm to exploring and experiencing pleasure in the body can enhance intimacy.
  • External factors such as stress, hormones, medications, and environmental influences can impact intimacy and sexuality.
  • Creating a safe space for partners to express desires, boundaries, and preferences is essential.
  • Addressing past traumas and their impact on sexual experiences can contribute to healing and growth.
  • Curiosity, self-awareness, and self-reflection play a significant role in deepening intimacy.
  • Love languages and erotic blueprints help us understand and meet each other's needs.
  • Letting go of resentment and consciously working on creating a fulfilling sexual relationship is crucial.
  • Scheduling time together and setting boundaries when needed are important aspects of maintaining a healthy relationship.
  • Seeking support and guidance can help navigate relationship challenges and facilitate personal growth.

Quotes from the Episode:

  • "It's important to explore and communicate with your partner to understand their preferences and desires."
  • "Shift the focus from orgasm to exploring and experiencing pleasure in the body."
  • "We often don't receive in the same way that we give... For a woman, it's difficult to receive, for men, it's difficult to receive."

7-Day Homework:

  • Set a timer for 5 minutes and write down everything that annoys you in your relationship
  • Make a list of 10 things you love or loved about your partner
  • Schedule a date morning when you don't have phones or kids.  Ask the question, "Tell me what you love about me?  Tell me what you desire out of our relationship?"
