Dating Advice That Will Ruin Your Sex Life

Much dating advice, both online and offline, also involves dealing with the topic of sex and intimacy. Unfortunately, even with the benefit of the doubt and assuming good intentions, a lot of the advice is inaccurate and can have a lasting negative impact on relationships and sex lives.

Advice based on myths, false assumptions, harmful gender stereotypes, and general sex-negativity can have a lasting impact on how we approach intimacy and, as sex professionals, Dr. Valeria and I often see the result of following this advice in the clients that seek our help.

To clear things up, we recorded this episode of the Get Sex Smart podcast where we address five types of problematic dating advice out there. We explain why following it not only won’t help you have good sex now but can also have negative consequences for your sexual relationship long-term.

Oh, and a fun fact – this is my all time favourite Get Sex Smart episode 🙂

In this episode you will learn:

  • why falling into the Madonna/whore dynamic never ends well
  • how making women the gatekeepers of sex carries over to issues in the bedroom
  • why putting your needs and boundaries on the backburner is never a good idea – even (especially) at the beginning of a relationship
  • the negative impact of having a scaricity mindset when dating
  • why being your genuine self is a prerequisite to having truly amazing sex
  • the importance of coming from a place of worthiness and being your (best) authentic self
