Reader Request: If you feel awkward initiating, this question is for you

October 29,2019

Xander and I are back from our anniversary celebration trip, and we’re excited to share the final Reader Request video with you! (Missed the other Reader Request videos? You can catch them here, here, and here!)

We’ve been so humbled by all of your great feedback this month! Xander and I both really enjoyed this format, and we’re encouraged that you liked our videos so much, so we’re thinking of ways to continue making videos. (We also still have ideas about a podcast too…)

If you subscribe to our YouTube channel or follow me on social media, you’ll get notifications of any new video we add! 

Here’s our final question:

“My partner and I have been together for 4 years, so sex has obviously slowed down. However, we both somehow feel embarrassed and a lot of pressure over initiating now. Sometimes I’d just rather not do it than even attempt or try! How can we stop feel embarrassed or ashamed about initiating sex? We used to be fine!” 

Head on over here to watch our response!
