Navigating healthy relational sexuality can be challenging. When one or both partners have a history of compulsive or addictive sexual acting-out behaviors, having a healthy sexual relationship can become extremely difficult, if not impossible.

You may be frustrated at your own current sexual relationship. This course will help you address issues around:

  • Addressing issues of frequency of satisfying sexual experiences together
  • Understanding your sexual patterns (and how addiction has affected those patterns)
  • Empathizing with your partner’s sexual frustrations
  • Setting sexual boundaries for yourself
  • Learning tools and techniques to break your problematic sexual patterns
  • Responding to common things your partner says (that you don’t know how to respond to)

While any couple working through problematic sexual patterns in their relationships can benefit from this course, it is specifically written for couples where at least one partner has a history of compulsive sexual behaviors.

This course is a prerequisite you must complete before starting the second course on this topic. You must engage in boundaries, identify your unhealthy patterns, and start working to break those patterns before you can proactively build a healthy relational sexuality.

  • Three worksheets to help aid in recovery learning and sharing
    • Sexual bondaries (and sexual “Bill of Rights”)
