Sex addiction is an illness where the addict uses sex to self-medicate, to cope with overwhelming emotions. It’s about disconnection, not finding a more attractive partner. But often, partners fear just that, as the movie plays in their heads with more attractive partners acting in more sensual ways, which can make them feel unattractive and disconnected from their own sexuality. It’s hard enough as is, with the images that media projects as sexy, since the reality is that sexiness isn’t about what we look like, it’s about the attitude we have towards how we look – something that can fail us when our mindset is preoccupied with erroneous fears. This episode will focus on getting your groove back, and reclaiming your sensuality, versus giving the addiction the power to define it. As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, Rebecca Rosenblat is sensitive to the struggles of a partner. As a Clinical Sexologist, she’s aware of sexual challenges, including how we feel about ourselves. Rebecca will combine those two aspects of her training to help with the discussion.Reclaiming Your Sexuality.
