In this episode of The Intimate Marriage Podcast, Alexandra Stockwell, MD discusses the concept of scheduling sex, which may seem unromantic but can help couples deepen their emotional, sensual, and erotic intimacy. Scheduling sex is not a sign of a lack of passion or spontaneity, but rather a way to prioritize and deepen your intimacy with your partner. So, if you want to create a passionate and fulfilling relationship, scheduling sex is a great way to start.
Alexandra draws a parallel between scheduling sex and making a reservation at a five-star Michelin restaurant. Just as you wouldn’t resent making a reservation for a special meal, you should view scheduling sex as an opportunity to anticipate and prioritize an intimate experience. She also emphasizes that sex should be seen as a sensual experience that can be savored through touch, taste, sound, and smell. By treating sex as a gourmet meal, couples can deepen their intimacy and create more meaningful connections with each other.
