In private practice she focuses on helping people of all ages, orientations and genders find love, healing and passion. In this episode, we discuss sex after divorce and how divorce can actually improve your sex life!

Sex gets better as you get older! You’re more confident, you’re more selfish, you’re not going to settle for bad sex, and you’re unlikely to get pregnant. Divorce is your door to a second adolescence, but here’s the thing: the rules have changed! You don’t have to be coy, or play games. Seek the relationship that works for you now! You’re not getting younger or more beautiful…unless you can afford cosmetic surgery.

Online is a great resource for meeting someone because it’s given you the chance to spell out your requirements. If you meet someone at a bar, and you are attracted to each other it’s too late to get into specifications for your ideal partner. Online dating provides a built-in screening process.

The secret to getting what you want from sex is to say, “I love when you do X”. Do it from a positive bent. Men’s #1 desire is to please a woman in bed, so help them along!
