Angilyn and Nate Bagley of the "Mormon Marriages" podcast interview Dr. Finlayson-Fife on intimacy, sexuality and the meaning frames or "false traditions" that limit our relational and sexual development in marriage. This is a mind-opening interview that you don't want to miss.
This podcast takes up two questions : The first question is about the impact of childhood sexual abuse and parental negligence on desire and intimacy in one woman's marriage. The second question is about a man whose wife wants him to be more sexually assertive. His wife recently acknowledged that her low desire for sex is because she doesn't find his passivity and excessive "niceness" in the sexual domain to be enticing. This good husband is trying to understand his own discomfort with the pseudo-dominance and sexual assertiveness that his wife craves, and if what she wants is actually good or destructive.
