Just as we are reinventing ourselves in our careers, spirit and fitness, why not in the bedroom? The kids are gone and empty nesters are reclaiming their sex lives. Woo Hoo! As we move into our 50’s our sex lives change, just like every other aspect of our lives. It is a time to reflect and reinvent ourselves into who we wish to be NOW. This episode focuses on intimacy within a committed relationship.
Becoming an empty nester changes many of the dynamics of sex between partners as well as the natural aging process. This is what we are talking about today.
I have invited Rebekah Beneteau, the founder of Pleasure Evolution to be my guest today. She is a Sex, Kink and Intimacy Coach and Workshop Leader based in Asheville, NC. At age 53, she says that she’s having the juiciest time of her life!
Rebekah tells me that she brings a shamanic, spiritual and sexual approach to all of her work in order to help people embody their unique sexual authenticity. She works one-on-one with clients in person and over Skype and with her business partner Trevor, they coach couples as well as facilitating workshops in the USA and abroad.
Their work runs the gamut from BDSM techniques to intimacy and relationship skills for better sex.
