The Four W’s…
What? The Gott Sex Series is an upcoming web based video program designed to help couples like you learn the skills necessary to have and maintain great sex lives, all from the privacy of your own home. It differs from other sex programs you may have seen because, like everything we do here at The Gottman Institute, it is entirely research based.
Whether things are going great between you and your partner, or you have stopped having sex altogether, this series will help make sex more passionate and personal for both of you.
The Gott Sex Series will be primarily video-based and will consist of nine modules, each with its own downloadable exercises designed to get couples to start communicating about sex in an open and effective way. It will, however, do much more than that.
To be as comprehensive as possible, we will be including a huge amount of additional content, resources, interviews with real couples, and extras to help you get your sex life exactly where it needs to go.
When? Mid October. The good news is that we have been hard at work for the last month, shooting and editing. Things are moving ahead quickly and we should be ready to launch shortly. A little closer to the date, we will be providing more information about how to become part of this program.
Why? We constantly see couples who are unhappy with this area of their lives, and we know it doesn’t have to be like that. Although we update our Blog as much as possible and genuinely want you to succeed, there is simply too much information to post it all here. Soon this Blog will become part of a larger online community in order to better serve your needs.
The problem when it comes to sex advice is that it usually involves superficial solutions to complex problems. For example, go to any large bookstore and you will find a section of books about how to make sex better. Usually these books suggest various ways of rubbing, caressing, sucking, and licking the penis and the clitoris.
These are all very good ideas, and they create excitement, engorgement, lubrication and erection as couples prepare for sensual play and/or intercourse. But books like these will ultimately come up short if certain fundamental pieces of your relationship are not in place. The fact is that you can’t make your sex life better in the long run just by learning new sexual tricks.
We think we can do better than these books. What’s more, we think great sex really isn’t that complicated. What makes it tough for some couples is that it requires talking, touching, and knowing one’s partner romantically. It involves establishing and maintaining the emotional connection that makes both people want to be excited, carefree, playful, open, vulnerable, or erotic with one another. All that becomes easier if we are able to talk to each another about sex.
Which in a nutshell is exactly what the Gott Sex Series is going to help you to do.
All for now,
The Gottman Institute
