In this episode of The Intimate Marriage Podcast, Alexandra Stockwell, MD shares the fifth key to creating an intimate marriage: take responsibility. Taking responsibility is ultimately one of the biggest pivots into internal spaciousness, freedom, magnetism, and knowing your own power to create the relationship you actually want to be experiencing.
The idea of responsibility can feel burdensome and heavy for some people.

For over two decades, I have been guiding men and women to bring pleasure and purpose back into all aspects of life— from the daily grind of running a household to creating ecstatic experiences in the bedroom!
I embarked on this journey not only for my patients but for myself and my own relationship. I wanted more for my life and my marriage than logistics, and discussions about childcare.
