In this episode with Julie and Gina, you're gonna learn to keep a slow cooker of erotic fire going through the pandemic- instead of letting it burn out.
“For some people, it's highlighting things that were a problem before."
"The erotic does not thrive in a tight boring container."
"Most people are experiencing intense desperation and claustrophobia at the same time."
"There are ways we can go from a worker bee to a connected partner, but they almost all require space."
"Libido is really about life force."
"We're not plugging into erotic/eros energy, it's not surprising we're having a hard time sexually."
"If you don't have space to talk about sex, you don't have space to do sex."
"Sexy slow cooker slow jams"
"If your erotic energy falls off completely starting back up again is gonna take a LOT of energy."
"We're around each other, but we're not really together."
"Show up for each other."
