045: Staying Sexy While Parenting, with Megan Lambert & James Mattingley
Staying emotionally, physically, sexually, and spiritually intimate is challenging enough for any of us, at any time in life.
But add to that mix a newborn — with the sleep deprivation, body changes, constant outflow of energy and limited inflow, and the vulnerability of needing so many new things and making so many adjustments — and the dance of intimacy takes on many unexpected steps.
So how do you keep the dance sexy? How do you stay sensual, playful, and open while navigating the challenges of new parenthood?
When it comes to cultivating unguarded communication, connected conflict resolution, and transformational sex for committed couples — there’s no better pair than Megan Lambert and James Mattingley.
Both as a couple themselves and as coaches, these two are amazing at embodying the sacred feminine and masculine while keeping it extremely real and down to earth.
In this interview, I go deep with both Megan and James and ask questions about many of the challenges couples face in this new chapter of their lives: making time for intimacy, learning to see the tender need underneath the complaint, getting to know your body all over again, and taking radical responsibility for the quality of connection.
I learned so much from these two in this conversation, and I know you will, too, no matter where you are in your journey.
