From Crisis to Connection: Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife - Reclaiming your sexuality - Episode 87

from crisis to connection podcast Apr 08, 2021

In this week's episode, I have a discussion with Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife about how to reclaim personal sexuality in recovery from sexual betrayal.

This is a confusing topic for those who have sexually betrayed their partner and for those partners who have been sexually betrayed. These are the some of the questions I hear on a regular basis from couples who are working through sexual betrayal:

What to we do about sex after betrayal? My own sexuality feels so altered, how do I get it back?  What if I don't want to have sex or be a sexual person?

This is an episode for people in all stages of recovery - from early in the healing process or later when you're trying to navigate a new sexual relationship. 

In this episodes we discuss:

How sexual betrayal impacts individual sexuality for both the unfaithful and the betrayed. What individual and couple factors influence how deeply sexuality is impacted. The steps individual might consider as they begin reclaiming their sexuality. The roadblocks that get in the way of reclaiming personal sexuality in the wake of sexual betrayal. The growth we see as individuals work to reclaim their sexuality.
