Sexuality in the Church, Sexual Aversions, Performance Anxiety, & Romance in Marriage by Josh Spurlock

Welcome to a truly transformative episode of #MyCounselorLIVE “Sexuality in the Church, Sexual Aversions, Performance Anxiety, & Romance in Marriage.” Today, we are honored to have not one, but two distinguished guests, both Licensed Counselors and Christian Sex Therapists, Josh Spurlock and Tish Hedger. Together, they guide us through a series of critical discussions that lie at the crossroads of spirituality, relationships, and personal well-being.

In this multifaceted conversation, we venture into the realm of sexuality within the Church. Josh and Tish explore the complex dynamics of faith and sexuality, addressing how the Church’s messaging can shape individuals’ attitudes and experiences in intimate relationships.

Faulty messaging around sex and the impact of sexual trauma are also important topics. The episode delves into the ways in which past experiences can create sexual aversions, pain, and pleasure within the context of intimate relationships.

Performance anxiety is a common challenge for many individuals, impacting their ability to fully engage in sexual experiences. Josh and Tish provide invaluable insights on understanding and managing performance anxiety, offering a path towards greater sexual confidence and self-assuredness.

The journey towards feeling sexy and pursuing your spouse romantically is yet another critical aspect of the discussion. Our guests shed light on how individuals and couples can enhance their sense of sensuality and maintain the spark in their relationships.

But our exploration doesn’t stop there. Josh and Tish also address the intricate relationship between sexual trauma and sensory disorders, offering a comprehensive perspective on the challenges individuals may face in this regard.

This episode is a testament to the power of open communication, understanding, and empathy within intimate partnerships. Your questions are at the core of our dialogue, and Josh Spurlock and Tish Hedger are here to provide professional guidance and answers to your inquiries. Whether you’re seeking to reconcile your faith with your sexuality, looking to overcome the impact of sexual trauma, or simply wanting to improve your intimate relationships, this episode is a wellspring of knowledge, support, and valuable guidance.
