The Erica Diamond Podcast

Aug 13, 2019

Episode Summary

In this episode, Dr. Laurie Betito and I dive into everything sexuality. We chat how to keep the passion alive after many years with your partner, how to talk to your teens about sex, and even what sex toys are a must-have for your collection! Dr. Laurie is so easy to talk to you - she's funny, intelligent, and sheds light on the institution of marriage today. You might feel like you're spying on a conversation with your bestie.

No topic is left unturned: we talk about the rise of sexting and emotional affairs, we talk infidelity, open marriage, swinging and swapping, happiness, and everything LOVE! The only topic we didn't get to, is love and sex after menopause. Have no fear, that one is coming!
