Sex Gets Real: Sex and Chronic Illness

A few weeks ago I had the honor of chatting with Dawn and Dylan, the folks behind Sex Gets Real. We talked about all sorts of crazy sexy goodness like:

  • sex and chronic illness
  • lube
  • passionate monogamy (aka how to keep things hot when you’re vanilla and/or with someone else for a long time)

Here are the highlights:

“I’d argue that [lack of sex] means that self-care has already gone out the window.”

“Your sex life is worth it.”

“Beyond that, just for like bad-ass sex, we like the lube here!”

“I call it the g-zone.” 

“Woo hoo – body love!”

“Those really awkward embarrassing moments that happen during sex make the best stories later.”

“Intimacy is this broad word […] that includes all those little silly butterfly moments.”

“I think any relationship model is the right one for you as long as you chose it.”

Your Partner in Passion,
