The Invisible Woman

I was interviewed for the South China Morning Post about the topic of the Invisible Woman.

As women age, one of the less welcomed and surprising experiences they may have is to feel like they are no longer seen. Usually occurring during their mid 40’s and older, women may have the experience that they are ignored or like they don’t matter.

This is how society often treats women. However, just like with any social messages, you need to see that they are limited and one sided. Recognize that with age comes wisdom. Remember all of the valuable lessons you have learned throughout life and the gifts that you can give others with that knowledge. With age comes confidence. You know yourself more and are less likely to put up with things that don’t serve you any longer.

Emotional and Sexual Balance in Long Term Relationships- Part One

What is emotional and sexual balance?

In satisfying relationships, your partner is more than just a confidant and friend, they are also your sexual companion. Unfortunately, seriously involved couples, whether married or not, too often become so preoccupied with managing day-to-day tasks involving jobs, parenting, household duties, and life responsibilities that they treat their relationship (including sexuality) with benign neglect. Even though their relationship remains stable, they lose their spark and emotional intimacy. A healthy couple relationship promotes a vital sexual relationship that a great balance of closeness and eroticism.

Take a moment to think about your sexual relationship. On a scale of 1-10, one being complete neglect and 10 being complete immersion, where are you on the scale? Are you thinking that  that you’ll tend to it tomorrow…. when in reality you’re putting it off? If so, think of one thing could you do today to give your sexual relationship, and your partner, more attention. Act on it!
