We generally think that fear is a bad thing for our relationships and sex lives. But maybe not?
Shortly before Halloween, I spoke on San Diego Living about the potential relationship benefits of fear, and how you can consciously bring this into your relationship for fun all year long!

With the recent hacking of private information on the Ashley Madison extramarital affair dating site, I think it's important to ask why we place monogamy in such high regard, yet have such high rates of cheating? I discussed the topics of non-monogamy, open relationships, boundaries, communication, and what's possible on San Diego Living with Marc Bailey. I'm so happy I was able to at least scratch the surface of this controversial topic on the morning news!

Yeah - a romantic vacation! It means time away from work with your partner. But will it be a relaxing trip by the pool? Or an outdoor adventure? Or an exploration of art museums and architecture? There are several important factors that need to be discussed ahead of time with you partner, to make sure you're on the same page, or at the least that you understand your partner's expectations and perspective.
I discussed this topic with Marc Bailey on Channel 6's San Diego Living, coincidentally days before his upcoming vacation to Alaska with his wife. Happy travels!

I tackle this topic on the San Diego Living morning news with Marc Bailey, as we delve into different cultures around the world and their versions of love, romance, and sensuality. It's a relatively superficial discussion, but we do touch on the sociologically fact that our versions of love and romance are created by the culture and country in which we're raised. And if we don't like them, why not consider how others do it?!
