Withholding Sex: A Misuse of Intimacy
In this show, Psych up welcomes back psychologist, psychoanalyst and Psychology Today blogger, Dr. Max Belkin to discuss the issue of withholding sex in an intimate relationship. In the back and forth with host, Dr. Suzanne Phillips the show moves from discussion of an example of sexual avoidance as “covert warfare in the bedroom” to the withholding of sex as a painful manifestation of low self esteem, self-judgment, fear of performance to fear of not being loved.

In the examples used, it becomes clear that withholding sex is usually misunderstood and painfully rejecting to both partners. Strategies for clarifying meaning and finding new ways to re-ignite emotional and sexual connection are discussed. You will hear what is often too difficult to talk about!
