#4 Why Love is Not Enough for a Healthy Relationship with Reid Mihalko

In this phenomenal episode, Reid Mihalko shares inspiring stories of his life and wisdom from his experiences as a sex educator and sex geek with us. He is not only an incredibly entertaining storyteller, but he also shares a lot of tips and tools on how to live a more self-expressed and fulfilled life inside and outside the bedroom. The reason why I wanted to talk with him on the podcast is that EVERY single conversation I have had with him I thought “I wish we recorded this and can share it with the world”. Here we go. Number one is done and here for you. 🙂

Reid shares the epic and oh so helpful framework on “How to start complicated conversations” with us that is related to his work. He talks about why slowing down is the black belt of consent, why love is not enough for a healthy relationship and why trust the sexiest thing about consent is.
