Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband Brad Falchuk
Gwyneth added she had ‘a friend’ who wanted her to ask [intimacy counselleor] Michaela what to do to cure a feeling of being non-sexual due to anxiety over the coronavirus chaos.
…Michaela – who has previously talked about tantric sex with Gwyneth at Goop events – told the actress she had a ‘pleasure course’ women in lockdown could follow.
She told Gwyneth that ‘most women I’ve talked to are not feeling very sexual… the female body when put under stress goes into survival mode‘
‘Food, comfort and eating sweets to up the body fat; most women are reporting these are the things they want to do. They don’t want so much pleasure.
Opening to pleasure leads to all others sorts of emotions. It’s fairly normal for women to have emotional response in the context of sexual pleasure and orgasm, crying, even anger things like that.’
