Description

Many people define intercourse as penetration, disregarding all other aspects of sexual connection such as foreplay or afterplay. The pressure for penetrative intercourse, however, can contribute to power struggles and unhappiness for many couples. What if we reframed intercourse as outercourse—sex play without penetration? This session will help therapists work with couples and individuals for whom intercourse is not a desired erotic experience. You’ll discover how to help couples:

  • Navigate sexual interactions when one partner wants intercourse and the other does not
  • Develop erotic compassion toward one another
  • Find creative and fulfilling ways to be sexual outside of penetration
  • Talk about common physical struggles with painful intercourse
