Susan Lager, a psychotherapist and relationship coach, co-hosts this episode with Judith Rowan, PhD., a couples therapist, and highly sought certified sex therapist from Exeter, New Hampshire. With all the buzz in the media lately about Anthony Weiner's marital infidelity via "cyber sex", Arnold Schwarzenegger's "love child" with the housekeeper, (and the long, sad list of secret sexual escapades), one could be quite cynical about the possibility of marital and sexual bliss coexisting beyond the first few feverish months. The two therapists share their stories and insights about the prognosis for satisfying sex in marriage, given the predictable problems couples often have very early in the game. Several central issues will be identified, as well as some important strategies couples can use to maintain and amplify sexual pleasure, or to revive a limp marriage bed.
