Great sex in long term relationships doesn’t have to fade away.

Sex in long-term relationships doesn’t have to die–in fact, it can be re-born, over and over, across the decades. We can choose to discover and re-discover our partner sexually, again and again, over the course of a lifetime.

My guest today is one such sexual explorer.

Isabel Losada has worked as an actress, singer, dancer, researcher, tv producer, broadcaster, public speaker, comedian, and author, best known for her bestseller The Battersea Park Road to Enlightenment. But it’s Isabel’s latest book which compelled me to seek her out for an interview.

Sensation: Adventures in Sex, Love, and Laughter is the first-hand account of one woman’s quest to learn everything she can about creating and sustaining sexual pleasure, intimacy, and desire in long-term relationships. Fed up with the tired cultural narrative that tells us that passion, sex, pleasure will inevitably wane as we grow older, in the book Isabel discovered new perspectives, new practices, new modes of sexuality that can help anyone in a long-term relationship restore and revitalize their sex lives.

Sensation is a funny, poignant, provocative read, and if someone is looking for a “gateway drug” into exploring the literature around sex in long-term relationships, and alternative perspectives on sustaining sexual pleasure and desire, this is it.

In today’s episode of Humans in Love Isabel and I discuss how we can all sustain great sex in long-term relationships, the folly of “chasing orgasms,” tantric teachings and the vast sexual spectrum, the challenges of speaking openly and honestly about sex, separating orgasm from ejaculation, our shared admiration of vulvas of all shapes and sizes, and much, much more. Not for the squeamish, this one.

This was one of the most fun, raw, and revealing interviews I’ve ever had the pleasure of conducting. Hope you get as much out of it as I did.
