Sex therapist and researcher, Dr. PetraZebroff, describes the four ways to increase sexual desire and reconnect a sexual spark in long-term relationships. The natural and gradual decrease in sexual passion is one of the most common complaints for sex therapists. After extensive research, which included more than 10,000 survey participants and helping hundreds of couples reconnect, Dr. Zebroff describes how “low sexual desire” may not be what it seems. Find out which of the four ways of sexual initiation works for you and your partner to get turned-on. PetraZebroff, has been an avid student of human sexuality for over 25 years. First as a PhD student, then learning from clients as a sex therapist and now with sex research.
After founding, Libida, the first women’s online sexual magazine and community, Petra went on to write for popular magazines and websites such as Psychology Today and focuses on sex research and innovation to understand the areas of sexual initiation and eroticism.
All through that journey, there has been one common thread, and that is — what lights people up sexually. While the majority of sex research and therapy emphasize the problems of sex, Petra has focused on what ‘works’ sexually, specifically what sparks up the erotic part of the brain.
For the last decade she has surveyed more than 10,000 people and worked extensively with hundreds of couples in long-term relationships, to answer the question, “how do We get that first-time spark back?” This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
