Show Notes

In Episode 2, we talk about sex during the Sandwich Generation Squeeze (SGS). So what is going on with people in the SGS and sex? We dive into how caregiving fatigue, sex drive, age, sexual beliefs, anxiety or depression, menopause, and relationship tension affect sex.

We examine sexless marriages where sex represents the relationship in terms of trust, vulnerability, safety, and desire. The importance of non-sexual touch is explored.

We discuss helpful strategies to keep or reignite the flame and how connection is the thread from intimacy to the bedroom.
