[ Psych UP with Dr. Suzanne Phillips ] How Important is Sexual Satisfaction in Marital Satisfaction?
Big topic, but what else is new with Dr. Suzanne Phillips, she brings it every week.

So how important is sexual satisfaction in our marital satisfaction?  Inquiring minds would like to know!

Well it's complicated, here is an example of how the 'scoreboard', as I called it during this show, rates.  Say you are very sexually active, I don't know come up with a number, say 3 times a week, and you feel like your on top of the game, so to speak.  And all of a sudden you find out that a neighbor, or friend, or co-worker or whatever, is having sex five times a week, now everything changes, 'scoreboard'!

According to our conversation, this kind of stuff happens, and it really is immaterial, but it can affect your mindset, which leads to second guessing.  Keeping up with the 'Jones's' is not the rational thing, but irrational as we are sometimes, it happens and it does not need to.

Dr. Phillips talks about all of this and then some, really her line of 'dancing in the dark together' is great, it really is about the complexity of the individuals, your communication, your perceived happiness, absolute and relative, that define this complex topic.

Listen in, become enlightened, I sure was as we discuss this and many other variables that can make your relationship shine.
