Intimate Details‘ Dr. Tiffanie L. Davis Henry is here to give you her best advice about your sex life in 2014.
Q: What resolution did you make this year?
A: My goal this year is to look for way to be of service to others.
Q: What is a common resolution that you hear from people?
A: In terms of the clients that I see in my practice, it’s certainly to have sex more or to be more sexually adventurous.
Q: Why do you think people fail to keep their resolutions?
A: I think that people set goals that are unrealistic and aren’t attainable. For couples in a sexless marriage, it makes very little sense to set a goal to have sex three times per week. A more realistic goal might be to have sex just once per month. You can always work toward greater, but I never want my clients to feel like they’ve failed before they’ve even gotten started.
Q: What is one action a person can take to stick to their resolution?
A: Make one change, not a drastic change. Be realistic in your resolve, and don’t set a goal that will be to hard to attain or maintain.
Q: What advice would you give someone who is struggling?
A: Rather than focus on what you want to stop doing, focus on what you want to start doing. When you focus is on being healthier, you’ll find that the unhealthy habits begin to dwindle away.
