117: Where Does Masturbation Fit Into a Couple's Sex Life with Ari Tuckman

Uncategorized Feb 25, 2020

How is masturbation being used in the couple--as a path of least resistance to avoid confronting sexual/relational issues or as an add-on to an otherwise good shared sex life? How can couples balance the right to self-pleasure against the right to a sexually available partner? Does masturbation use up sexual interest--or kindle it? Does it matter whether external erotic material is used (porn, erotica, etc)?

Dr. Ari Tuckman discusses these, and many other topics in the latest episode of the The Couples Therapist Couch.

Ari is an expert at working with ADHD, relationships and is also a sex therapist. He has written 4 books and has a podcast about ADHD called More Attention, Less Deficit.

Books:

  • ADHD After Dark: Better Sex Life, Better Relationship (August 2019)
  • Understand Your Brain, Get More Done: The ADHD Executive Functions Workbook
  • More Attention, Less Deficit: Success Strategies for Adults with ADHD
  • Integrative Treatment for Adult ADHD: A Practical, Easy-to-Use Guide for Clinicians
