Let’s be honest here – talking about things like sex and intimacy can be all a bit uncomfortable for a lot of couples. We get that. But what we also see in our work with couples in business is that the way you relate to one another in the bedroom has big ramifications for how well things go for you in the boardroom (aka your business).
And that’s why today’s episode of Boardrooms and Bedrooms is so necessary. Vital even!
Isiah McKimmie is a sexologist and therapist who works with couples who feel more like housemates/co-workers than lovers, those who have drifted apart, and couples for whom sex is a big fat scary elephant in the room whose presence is felt but not mentioned.
While creating and maintaining intimacy is hard enough for most busy couples, Isiah explains why the challenge is even greater for couples in business who can easily assume that spending lots of time together is enough to nurture that deeper connection. We also delve into the relationship between a power imbalance and sexual desire – this is really interesting to understand – and learn the one thing couples must do to stay on top (pun intended).
