The Intimate Marriage Podcast, with Intimacy Coach Alexandra Stockwell, MD

Dec 13, 2023

In this episode of the Intimate Marriage Podcast, Alexandra Stockwell, MD, discusses the importance of intimacy in a marriage, especially during the holiday season. She shares four rituals that couples can practice to enhance their connection, pleasure, and intimacy, to feel closer and happier with one another. 

These rituals include ways of embracing, presence and eye gazing, connecting with one another at the end of each day, and engaging in sensual exploration in the bedroom. Alexandra emphasizes the need for intentionality and open communication in implementing each of these rituals, which can be done individually, or in any combinations.


Also in this episode:

  • Embrace for at least 20 seconds every day to increase connection and reduce stress.
  • Practice eye gazing as a way to enhance attraction and deepen the feeling of connection.
  • Ask each other about something important from your day to foster meaningful conversation and understanding.
  • Engage in sensual exploration in the bedroom, taking turns as the giver and receiver, as you enjoy various sensations.
