Veronica Monet, a relationship and sexuality coach – www.TheShameFreeZone.com – returned to the program. Dr. Diana and Veronica explored codependency and body shame in more depth – having touched on these subjects May 9th. There are common misunderstandings about codependency; actually, it is more than being needy, dependent. The codependent patterns may include people pleasing and being a control freak. Future codependents naturally feel comfortable in relationships in which their needs are secondary or ignored, while feeling compelled to take care of someone else. Consequently, they will gravitate toward narcissistic or selfish people. To begin healing, assertive skills and healthy boundaries are necessary. Who am I? What do I need? Body shame was discussed in the second half of the show. How does a woman’s image of her body affect her sexuality – and her relationship with her partner? “Self-image neurosis” is often a way to avoid being sexual, an excuse not to abandon herself to another. She may lose her sensitivity to her partner and forgo pleasure. What to do about poor body image? A woman must cultivate the ability to appreciate her uniqueness, and start to see “imperfections” as endearing distinctions. Many people believe that self-hatred is a catalyst for change…What is necessary is to be deliberately  kind to oneself. Visit The Shame Free Zone because in about a week Veronica’s formula for Your Guide to Exquisite Partnership will be posted.

Dr. Jen Martin (www.drjen.net) interviewed Dr. Diana about low sexual desire, its prevalence, and the common reasons for it. Actually, it was a conversation between the two docs. What to do if you are the partner with lower sexual desire? How does it impact the partner with higher desire? What about the cultural conditioning on sexual desire?  All of these topics and more were discussed. Listen in because there is much contradiction and confusion around these topics.

Veronica Monet, a relationship and sexuality coach – www.TheShameFreeZone.com – returned to the show. This time she and Dr. Diana spoke about Veronica’s focus in her workshops: Claiming your Erotic Birthright as a Woman. The topics included co-dependency (people-pleasing and control freaks); body image/body shame (very common…with lots of  on-the-air examples); and, the divine feminine (balancing masculine and feminine energies…the life energy that flows through the body and its energy centers. Channeling this energy and riding it to maximum pleasure is a worthwhile goal!). This in an inspiring, provocative program. Please tune in!

Jill Angelo, Genneve CEO (www.Genneve.com), interviewed Dr. Diana on the subject of Aging, Sexuality and Menopause. Jill started Genneve because she was committed to creating quality products and wanted to foster a community where women can find information, conversation, and inspiration. This show contributed to those goals! A woman’s lack of interest can be both physically and emotionally inspired. Dr. Diana spoke of solutions; she knows about them personally and professionally. BHRT (Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy) can help, so can talk therapy, and so can quality products like those produced at Genneve. Jill asked Dr. Diana how she addresses women who ask, “Is this it? Am I done? Is my life as a sexual being finished?” There was also a discussion about how sex can be very good for our health! And, what about sexual pain and body-image problems? These concerns – and more – were explored. Dr. Diana wants to see her clients restore emotional intimacy and reach their full sexual potential…Indeed, sex matters! Genneve’s products can help a lot: go to their website, or to AMAZON, or to Walgreens.com. The goal is to treat the whole woman and the relationship!
