Are you or your clients/patients getting what you want when it comes to sex? Odds are, probably not. Most of us have sexual fantasies that we wish were part of our sexual reality; however, few of us have shared these desires with our partners, let alone acted on them, because fear, shame, and embarrassment are holding us back. We need to move past sexual shame and learn to communicate our desires in order to establish happy and healthy relationships. Sexual communication has a number of benefits, from establishing greater intimacy and closeness to keeping passion alive for the long haul.
