Having better, frequent and more fun sex is arguably the biggest secret benefit of getting into the best shape of your life. Sex is an integral part of our health, yet over 350 episodes in, we’ve yet to have a conversation about it. So I wanted to bring on a sex expert to tell us all about it. Today I’m joined by Dr Bat Sheva Marcus, Ph.D, who’s a certified sex therapist, and the author of Satisfaction Guaranteed : How To Have the Sex You’ve Always Wanted.
She has spent her life helping people reclaim pleasure in their bodies and spirit and her career has been dedicated to bridging the gap between the medical and the psychological in sexual health. For 25 years she served as the clinical director of one of the largest sexual health centers in the US. Dr Marcus earned a master’s in public health as well as a Ph.D. in Human Sexuality at the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality. In this episode we dive into everything from what the role of sex is, how often is a good amount, what makes great sex and why people have sexless relationships. If you’ve got a great sex life, there’s tips in here to help you take it to the next level. If you want to improve your sex life, or fix bad sex, you’re going to love this one!Timestamps:

I’m very excited and proud to announce we’ve developed a brand new partnership with one of the world’s leading premium supplement brands, Optimum Nutrition, where they’ll be helping support our RNT members, and listeners of this podcast, on their journey of health, fitness and total transformation. With the world’s #1 best-selling protein powder in their range, and a growing plant-based range, you can now use the code RNT20 to get 20% off in their US
