“Why do you write about sex so much?” My client Jeff recently asked me....READ THE FULL ARTICLE FROM THE SOURCE

I thought about it for a moment, realizing that what seemed obvious to me wasn’t to him.

“In 15 years of coaching men in relationship, so many are feeling deprived of touch and physical intimacy in their marriages. And… that was once my story, so I relate.”

“Ok, that makes sense,” Jeff said. “As you know, I can also relate.”

“But what’s the key to getting more sex?” he said.
