With a depth and breadth that may surprise you, today’s podcast guest, Dr. Eric Fitzmedrud, delves into everything from consent to discovering your erotic landscape, to help men have stronger relationships and a hotter sex life!
These days it can be especially confusing to navigate women, and create a love and sex life that is deeply satisfying. For many men this causes a lot of pain.
Whether you’re dating someone new, and trying not to offend a woman, or you’re in a long term relationship navigating frustrations or unmet needs, there are ways to create stronger, more intimate relationships and hotter sex.
Having honest conversations and navigating consent are two of the foundations of love and passion that lasts. And today’s Man Alive podcast guest ties together everything from consent to discovering your erotic landscape, to support you.
Dr. Eric Fitzmedrud joined me to discuss his powerful new book: The Better Man: A guide to consent, stronger relationships and hotter sex. This book blends Eric‘s clinical experience with his vulnerable personal experience. He delves into these topics with a depth many men haven’t explored.
I was thrilled by our conversation in which we discussed:
- 6 dimensions of wellness you can focus on for pleasure and meaning beyond sex
- The important difference between feeling love and the skill of delivering love
- The 3 step consent process that doesn’t take the sexy out of sex
- Hard conversations as the route to a passionate relationship
- How to strive to be “a better asshole”
I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation and think you will too! When you’re done, go get Eric’s book. You will uplevel your relationships and your sex life if you take on his practices!
