How Your Body Image Impacts Your Sexuality

How is your sex life? How is your body image? If you answered “not great” to either of those questions, then this is the perfect episode for you!

This show was inspired by a direct message I received on Instagram from a listener who candidly explained her issues with body image and sex drive. It broke my heart because I continue to get similar messages often. 

And so, today, I explain the connection between negative body image and low sex drive. I share my own feelings on this, what sets off my own negative body image thoughts and what are some things we can do to improve our negative self-talk to improve our body image and start enjoying more sex! 

I’ll also issue a Body Image Challenge and hope you’ll join in!


You’ll find out:

  • What the DM said in detail
  • Personal examples of negative thoughts I’ve had with my body
  • Why/how every person is impacted (at some point) by their own body image
  • Reasons why someone may have low sexual self esteem
  • Where negative body image stems from
  • How to have a conversation with your partner (about sexuality)
  • The TV show that triggers me (re: body image)
  • How I protect my mental wellbeing
  • Why/how your mind believes what you tell it
  • The importance of educating yourself about your body and sexuality
  • Why we must remove the stigma around this topic
