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

Mar 6, 2024

In this episode of the Intimate Marriage Podcast, Alexandra Stockwell, MD dives into the profound impact that small, thoughtful gestures can have on creating a deeper connection in marriage. She emphasizes that such acts don’t have to be expensive or time-consuming, as the smallest deeds are sometimes the most significant in nurturing a deep connection between partners. Put differently, small gestures are the seeds which grow into emotional, sensual, and erotic intimacy blossoms.

Dr. Alexandra brings up the concept that 'Small is Beautiful,' explaining how minor, deliberate actions—like turning on an outside light or sending an estimated time of arrival—can express profound love and care in a relationship. She provides practical advice on how couples can integrate these minor but mighty acts of love into their daily routine to enhance closeness and connection.


Also in this episode:

  • Small, easy gestures in daily life have a huge impact on the emotional and intimate connection in a marriage.

  • Consistency in these acts is key, not the complexity or grandeur of the gesture.

  • Romantic gestures don't need to be spontaneous; they can be planned and scheduled by the giver while still allowing for a feeling of spontaneity and surprise for the one receiving them.

  • The 'no pain, no gain' philosophy does not apply when cultivating relationships; well chosen, simple acts, which require minimal effort, can yield significant results.
