Once you become a parent, so much of your life changes. Your daily schedule, the amount of sleep you get, the amount of time and energy you have, and the list continues. After long days and nights with the baby or working all day and dealing with a fussy toddler, and let’s not even forget parenting during a pandemic, sometimes you are too drained to think about getting intimate with your partner. With so much on our to-do lists, it can sometimes feel like sex is another thing to add to the calendar. But sex and intimacy are essential in romantic relationships. So if things have slowed down and you want to heat things back up with your partner, this podcast is for you.

Today, we’re chatting with Jamye Waxman, a licensed marriage and family therapist, sex therapist, and sex educator with over 20 years of experience, talking about intimacy, romance, and sexual pleasure. She’s sharing helpful tips about keeping intimacy alive in parenthood with our partners.

Jamye is the author of four books and a former radio and TV producer. She once worked as a Playgirl columnist, a Playboy Sextreme Makeover expert, a podcast host, a Babeland employee, and an adult filmmaker. With a career spanning the gamut of human sexuality, one thing has never changed — Jamye loves communicating with people about intimacy, sex, and relationships. This is why we knew she would be full of helpful tips on keeping intimacy alive in parenthood, and she definitely delivered. This is a good episode that you don’t want to miss!
