  1. Have the best sex of their lives
  2. Break through plateaus inside AND outside the bedroom

through expanding their ‘Erotic Menu™’.

Guiding Principle, Quote, or Mantra

The empowered desire approach – Responsibility, curiosity, and vulnerability.

When You Tripped Up

There was a tendency that Jamie played out in several relationships that she described as her trip up. Her tendency was to want to control her partner and manage their experience. She’s always been very intense so it was showing up in her relationships by trying to control everything. When she wasn’t able to control she would begin to be resentful towards her partner and the situation.

Where she figured out how to work with her actions was by giving herself her own playground where she could be at her full self. That place was the bedroom. She could exercise her full potential. She set up a container where she could be a lot and not limit herself. What she found by creating this was this deep bodied surrender.

Why was the bedroom your chosen safe playground?

There was a simple seed of desire that made me want to play with this in the bedroom. She wanted to go to a new space where she felt control and where she could lose control. It felt like the best place to explore that.

Proudest Moment in Partnership

There was a moment where her partner was really upset. Jamie would normally go into a defensive reaction or a care-taking reaction. What she’s been working on is to be able to take their reaction but not take things personally or take away from their experience. She’s been so used to showing up as a coach rather than a partner in the relationship. During that moment there was four words that came from her that can truly change someone’s life – Thank you for sharing. In that moment she felt her heart open.

What is the best partnership / relationship advice you have ever received?

Your partner is always reflecting.

Every trigger begins and ends internally with us.

About the author, Ken

I am the producer and host of Speaking of Partnership, a podcast that was inspired by a life of wearing the badge of self-sufficiency and independence proudly, until I realized it wasn't really a badge...it was armor.

My passion is helping you experience the power and payoffs of partnership by understanding and appreciating the opposite sex so you can feel safe, confident and understood in your personal, professional and family partnerships.
