"We all deserve to lead powerful, pleasurable lives, but sometimes we don't even know what that means. So it's really all about expanding our knowledge," she tells Dr. Ian Smith, noting exploration, mindfulness of our bodies, and learning how to communicate with our partners is key to a healthy sex life. "We think we know the mechanics of sex, but what it really comes down to is, 'Do I know what feels good to me?'"
She urges viewers to stop and ask if they are basing their sex on what they may have learned from the media. "Learning to be a great lover and to be healthy sexually is really an inside job," she says. "The people who think they know the most about sex typically do not."
Dr. Emily says if you are not sexually healthy it can impact all other areas of your life. She notes studies have shown that being sexually healthy can help support your immune system, lower blood pressure, and lead to taking fewer sick days.
She also encourages people who are having healthy sex to stay in communication with their partner about their needs, wants, and desires. She urges viewers to be open to new types of sex and to always try new things.
