– Neurochemistry, Romantic & Companionate Love, and how to keep your relationship & sex life fresh
Following on from our last workshop, in this one we will focus on:
- The neurobiology of love and pleasure.
- Romantic & Companionate Love.
- Countering Adaptation, keeping your relationship and sex lives fresh.
This will be a safe place to talk openly about sex, ask questions, test ideas, share your confusion and learning. I’m looking forward to it.
(This is a standalone workshop).
Buying running gloves recently, the cashier and I started talking about our studies. After learning I’d done the MSc in Applied Positive Psychology he asked, “what, in a sound bite, will make a relationship strong forever”? I thought for a moment and answered, ‘that both parties in the relationship understood a long lasting relationship takes more than can be said in a sound bite”.
As well as impromptu evidence based folk wisdom, BSL Interpreting, personal & executive coaching, and running an eclectic range of workshops, I’m known for having spent a summer playing Octopush*, being completely comfortable with saying “I don’t understand” when I don’t, and for having raised two occasionally gorgeous daughters to adulthood. **
But probably what’s more relevant to this workshop, is that I’ve found sex beguiling, confusing, wonderful, terrifying, compulsive, and fun. For years my sexual experiences and confidence were joined at the hip, I’ve had good, bad, awesome and dire sexual relationships, and more recently, I spent 6 years deliberately celibate, and kinda enjoyed it (really). Even more recently I’ve taken part in a spanking workshop, and am having serious fun with my current partner. I’ve found it to be stuff worth thinking about & testing out.
