Did becoming a parent change your erotic life? Of course it did! Kids change everything – your experience of your body, time, freedom, personal space and mental load will never be the same! As parents, our priorities change, and that keeps our species going. But kids don’t have to mean the end of your erotic life – as parents we can still choose to prioritize pleasure and connection with our partners – but it isn’t easy, and often takes a deliberate effort and framework to make it happen.
On this episode, the wonderful Dana B Myers joins us to talk about the process of reconnecting to our erotic lives as new parents. How do we give ourselves permission to take time and space away from our kids? How do we slay the mom guilt and focus on our own needs for half a minute? What dynamics with our partners help support a more sensual life – and what are the major roadblocks that get in the way?

Becoming a parent changes all aspects of your life, forever – including your erotic life. There is no going back to a “pre-baby body” or the time and freedom you had with your partner before welcoming a child. There is no going back – but we CAN choose to move forward into a more joyful and playful relationship with our sensuality and sexuality.
