We usually talk about unhealthy sex and the forbidden especially when it comes to healing from pornography and sexual addiction. Even though focusing on sex won't fix a pornography or sexual addiction, couples who are working solid individual recoveries need good information so they can learn how to create healthy sex in their marriages.
Join me as I interview sex expert Laura Brotherson, licensed marriage and family therapist and certified sex therapist, as we discuss 20 keys to health sex.
In this first episode of my two-part interview with her, we discuss:
- Why pornography is a sexual mis-educator for both men AND women
- The "Characteristics of healthy vs. unhealthy sex” chart (items 1-10)
