    The Sex Therapist


    Growing up with an OBGYN as a father, Emily Jamea naturally had an open environment that fostered candid discussions. This background undoubtedly paved the way for her to become a distinguished sex doctor, therapist and author.


    For many, speaking about sex is still very taboo in society, but many could benefit from a sex therapist.


    It’s up to each distinct couple to determine what a “normal” sex life is to them. 

    Narrowing The Gap


    There are so many elements and individual desires as it pertains to one’s sex life. It’s important to understand that everyone has very specific nuances to connection and sex. 


    When you add in the element of having children, research has shown that partner connection goes down up to 75% after having a child together. 


    One way to narrow the gap in satisfaction is to have a constant practice with oneself; diving into your individual interests and hobbies and not losing yourself to the caretaking of another. 


    Your individuality and sexuality are intrinsically interconnected. 

    Starting The Sex Conversation


    Many think talking with their partner or their therapist about their sex life will be awkward, but once you get over it and lean in, it will become less awkward.


    It’s in everyone’s best interest to speak up about your wants and desires, and ultimately it results in a healthier sex life. 


    It’s vital to have conversations about sex with your doctor to ensure your hormones are level, and also to receive any additional supplements that you may find helpful.
