In this episode of Sex after Divorce with Juliana Neiman, we discuss the importance of communicating your sexual needs to a new partner.
Communication is an important part of every healthy relationship, both in and out of the bedroom. Juliana teaches us how to communicate our sexual desires openly with our new partner and shares ways to keep the romance alive for years to come.
Communicating your needs can be done verbally or non-verbally, the important part is that you and your partner understand what each other’s needs are. Common stressors such as money problems or work issues can be enemies of sexual desire and Juliana shares how to put your problems on hold, if but for a short while, so you can enjoy healthy sex and intimacy with your partner.
Couples often avoid sex because their sex life has become dissatisfying or conflictual. If talking about it is uncomfortable (and for most it is, at least a bit), avoidance can become the path of least resistance. Lack of time is often a convenient excuse. Talking about sexual concerns in a caring way and planning together for sexual revitalization can be the cure for avoidance.
Most couples can work through their sexual frustrations and miscommunications simply by learning to communicate about what is important to them and what works for them and what feels intolerable to them and why

In Episode #5 of Sex after Divorce with sex therapist, Juliana Neiman, we discuss masturbation.
Masturbation is looked at as taboo by some and others were raised to believe that it’s wrong to pleasure yourself. In addition to feeling good, masturbation is a good way of relieving the sexual tension that can build up over time, especially for people without partners or whose partners are not willing or available for sex. Masturbation also is a safe sexual alternative for people who wish to avoid pregnancy and the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases.
Medically, It relieves stress and keeps everything about your body—your heart rate, blood pressure, reproductive system, brain chemistry—in very good shape .A 2003 Australian study found that men who ejaculated more than five times a week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer. Regularly flushing your system, so to speak, keeps your semen healthy and prevents the build up of cancer-causing chemicals.
So why all the hush hush? Juliana breaks down the myths associated with masturbation and helps us understand how to live a more fulfilling life in future relationships.
