Hanky Panky for Mommy & Daddy…

Sexual desire is the number one concern people bring to my sex therapy practice.  One partner wants more and one partner wants less.  This is particularly true with new parents.  Mom’s hormones are running rampant after the birth of a child, the baby is screaming bloody murder, the new dad doesn’t know what to do, etc., etc.  I am pleased to say that there is a “must read” book just published on the subject written by my colleague and friend, Dr. Ian Kerner, author of “She Comes First.” Ian’s new book is called, “Love in the Time of Colic: The New Parents’ Guide to Getting it On Again”.  When the going gets tough, sex is the glue that holds relationships together.  Ian’s book may be the best relationship insurance policy that parents can buy! www.doctorcannon.com

Sex with Santa…

The key to enhancing sex and intimacy during the holidays are twofold.  The first step is to create the intention to bring the joy of the season into the bedroom.  A little mistletoe on the top of the headboard can act as a loving reminder.  The second step is to identify holiday landmines and create a plan to minimize them.  The most common holiday stressors for couples are money, family, over-indulgence and over-committing.  So if you want to have better sex with Mr. or Mrs. Clause, avoid stepping in the reindeer dung by having a conversation with your partner about what would make this holiday season special and sexy for both of you.  www.doctorcannon.com
