My focus is how women's empowerment intersects with intimate coupledom. Many people recognize the old 1950s template for relationships doesn't fit them, but without better model, they feel lost. That's where I come in.
As a former Apple engineer turned international sex and sensuality educator, turned relationship coach for powerful women and confident men, I'm now in my twentieth year of helping couples thrive in their relationship. Over the years my work has garnered mentions everywhere from Cosmo to Playboy to Business Insider to Tim Ferriss's 4-Hour book series.
I've taught workshops of 12 to 250+ and spoken to groups of up to 800. I have 5k+ followers on Medium; my most popular article has 24k claps. I'm currently at work on a book titled "Powerful Woman Confident Man."
What are the new skillsets for men and women in intimate coupledom
Great sex in long term relationships
The particular relationship struggles of women who are conspicuously successful, intelligent, self-assured, etc. (and what's required of their partners for mutual happiness)
Open relationships, monogamy, and jealousy
Passion - lack of it, too much of it (e.g. fighting / wreckage), and how to do passion well
You refer to the 1950's conception of marriage as the "Father Knows Best" model. Why?
What were the biggest problems with the old model?
What do you recommend instead?
There's an old saying, "Men want sex and women want love." What's the truth about this?
Can couples have a mutually enjoyable love life over the long term? How?
How can men and women get on the same page if their sex life isn't stellar?
What's your advice for couples who are prone to fighting or arguing?
What if a couple has seemingly dealbreaker differences? Is there any hope?
How do you typically work with couples?
What are your thoughts on so-called "open" relationships? Any advice for couples thinking about it or practicing it?
How about relationships where one is the emotional feeler and the other is the analytical one?
