Partial Transcription of Interview with Isadora Alman:

Eric Michaels: In your opinion, why would fear exist among couples when it comes to sex within the relationship. Is this common from your perspective?

Isadora: Well, fear probably is a very strong word. Certainly reluctance, embarrassment, shame - nobody grows up in our culture without a great deal of that around sexual issues. The last person you want to be embarrassed in front of is your nearest and dearest and so I think all of us harbor a great deal or a little bit of the reluctance to appear ridiculous or needy or weird or any number of things that can come up around sexual issues.

Eric Michaels: What are ways and methods on how one can relax before having sex with their spouse?

Isadora: I think everybody has his or her own method of relaxation. Some people like to exercise, some like to take a long cold shower or a warm bath or a drink of something or another - so we all have to know our own conditions. If you know what you need in order to relax - that's what you need to let your partner know. A lot of people just need to decompress when they come home from work.

Eric Michaels: Within your counseling and coaching sessions - what is the most common area of struggle with your clients?

Isadora: The most common these days and it changes from all the years I have been doing this is a discrepancy in desire. One partner wants sex more often than the other does or in a different way or one doesn't want it at all or whatever it is, the two people are not in sync. And if you are in a monogamous relationship that really does create a problem.
