Close your eyes and picture the most mouthwatering, delicious meal you’ve ever tasted…
Now picture the worst meal you’ve ever had.
Can you do the same with your sexual experiences?
Believe it or not, sex and food are closely related.
Both experiences activate our brains in similar ways and can be sources of immense pleasure.
On the other hand, both can bring up negative emotions as well.
We may overindulge, purge, shame, or restrict ourselves when it comes to our appetites — both on our plates AND in the bedroom.
In this episode I’m talking about how your habits with food may carry over into your sex life, the biological links between food and arousal, and why it’s important to not limit yourself in either category.
Go grab your favorite snack and tune in!
