20: Dwindling Sex Drive? With Gizzi Erskine

There’s no question about it - sex is a big deal in an intimate relationship. How often do we have it? How do we feel about it? Do our expectations align with our partner? And, how should we communicate when they don’t? 

Well, this week Anna has a listener dilemma that skirts around all of these questions. It’s from a woman in a happy relationship, who’s looking for some advice on how to navigate her dwindling desire for sex with her partner. To help out with this one, Anna is joined by someone who is no stranger to talking about sex on a podcast — the brilliant TV chef and previous co-host of Sex, Lies & DM Slides, Gizzi Erskine. 

With the help of super-psychotherapist, Sam Pennells-Nkolo, Gizzi and Anna offer advice — suggesting some tools and tricks to the listener about how to build intimacy, ask for what you want sexually, and understand your own desires. We’ve had so many emails about this in the It Can’t Just Be Me inbox, so I know this is one that lots of you will be interested in. 

Have questions about sex? Divorce? Motherhood? Menopause? Mental health? With no topic off limits, Anna’s here to prove that whatever you’re going through, it’s not just you.
