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

May 8, 2024

In this episode of the Intimate Marriage podcast, Alexandra Stockwell, MD explores the vital role of intimate connection, when navigating struggles couples commonly encounter in their sexual relationship, particularly after facing significant life challenges such as infertility and loss. Offering gentle, compassionate guidance, she describes effective methods to recreate emotional, sensual, and erotic intimacy.

Dr. Alexandra discusses the challenges faced by couples when they experience disconnection during erotic intimacy. It often leads to functional sex rather than pleasure-driven passion. She  emphasizes the importance of reconnecting from a starting point of comfort and familiarity, slowly rekindling passion through tender, patient, calibrated moments together.


Also in this episode: 

  • Recognize the impact of life events, such as infertility treatments and personal loss, on a couple's sexual intimacy.

  • Understand the significance of starting with small, comfortable steps to re-establish physical connection.

  • Acknowledge that both partners have changed throughout the challenging life circumstances, in unique ways, and the importance of integrating new aspects into the relationship.

  • Utilize basic, soothing methods like eye gazing, hand-holding, or embracing, to facilitate a gradual and sustainable return to intimacy.
