A few thoughts on modern day sex.

3 thoughts from sex therapist Shirley Zussman

When it comes to our sex lives, many people aren't willing to be open books about the details of what they do or don't like. If you are feeling unsatisfied with any aspect of getting into bed with your partner, there are certainly a number of resources available to help kick things up again. Shirley Zussman, who has been around since Woodrow Wilson occupied the White House, has made a living helping couples discover their true sexual potential. The 100-year-old sex therapist recently spoke to Time Magazine about the state of our love lives in the modern day.

Here are a few of the thoughts she offered:

  • Casual sex is not as frantic: Even if we are sleeping with somebody we are not in a relationship with, there is no longer the amount of empty sexual encounters there once were. People crave intimacy and closeness each and every day.
  • There is more openness: When it comes to how we talk about sex, Zussman is happy with the progress that we have made as a society. We are, generally, no longer ashamed of communicating our needs and desires to our significant others. While some stigmas do still exist, they are certainly fewer than even a few decades ago.
  • We need to slow down our lives: "The use of time is very different in our society today. People are busy all the time. That was not true when I was growing up. At this stage of our development, we want to cover everything, we want to know everything, we want to do everything, and there's also [our personal] economy which requires an immense amount of time and effort," she told the news source. We need to take the time out to really connect with each other again.
