I always find it really interesting when I work with individuals and couples to see how they react when I bring up sex. Some are really comfortable with the conversation, others aren’t so much and truthfully I can understand both. Sex can seem like a very intimate conversation to have with your counsellor and it is okay if they don’t want to talk to me about it but it is important to talk to their partner about.
Let’s be honest intimacy is the main thing that separates out a relationship from a friendship and it is an important part of being together. When I speak of intimacy I don’t necessarily mean sex but rather any kind of physical interaction (kissing, cuddling, fooling around, sex etc).
