The Vital Connection Between Sex, Intimacy, and Vulnerability - Interview with Daniel Leibowtiz from the Intimacy Institute

We all seek connection with those around us. We have casual conversations with our friends and small talk with strangers and acquaintances. Typically, we seek a deeper more intimate connection with our loved ones, and yet sometimes it’s surprisingly difficult to get there. Despite years of living together, deep love, and an everlasting commitment, it can still be difficult to talk about certain needs and desires. This is all the more so true in a newer relationship.

Daniel and I transcend taboos to explore the territory of intimacy and vulnerability. We learn about Daniel's work as a sex therapist as he shares insights, useful advice, and tips around how we can improve our relationships and sexual connections.

What isn’t working in your sex life? How can you develop a vision of what you want to cultivate in terms of a healthy relationship to your sexuality?

Daniel shares how to overcome the awkwardness of talking about sex and the importance of vulnerability. We discuss a new metaphor for sex and explore why people avoid speaking up about what they're most thirsty for. 

Additional Topics include:

  • Why suffering in silence around sexual connection is harmful for everyone and how to better communicate with your partner about sex.

  • The commonality of sexual dissatisfaction in men and women and what can be done about it.

  • The place of power and privilege in conversation around sex, sexual pleasure, and intimacy. 

  • Obstacles to intimacy for men and how men can get beyond them.

  • Why it’s a common mistake when men try to get ALL of their intimacy needs from their romantic relationship.

  • How Daniel is modeling healthy manhood and fatherhood for his sons.
