Attraction Outside of Your Relationship episode podcast art.jpeg

Is it okay to experience attraction outside of your relationship?

Daniela (pronouns she/her/hers) and Shaun (he/his/him) talk about what happens when they experience desire and arousal when looking at other people outside of their relationship. They discuss how social conditioning and religion impact judgment and shame when it comes to being attracted to someone other than your partner.

Hear Daniela say, “You're not allowed to think about or look at or appreciate or feel anything in regards to anybody else other than your partner. And so there's a part of me that's like, you can't tell him that, like you're not allowed to think that it's a shame” when Shaun says, “I'd rather you tell me that you're attracted to somebody rather than not telling me because I know that attraction exists.” Tune in as Daniela and Shaun explore the effects of expressing their sexuality freely on their sex life.

Through Daniela and Shaun's conversation, think about what happens when you find yourself attracted to someone outside of your relationship. Consider how stifling your sexuality in some ways may stifle your sexuality in all ways.
