    I loved this concept and idea of drawing body maps. No matter the situation, I feel that every woman (or man) should be able to feel 100% comfortable and I think that body maps can really help with this. Setting boundaries is important because then your partner knows your needs and what will make you the most comfortable and happy and that is so important. Loved this episode!

      Hey Corinne! I really loved the idea of drawing body maps as an intimate partner activity to better understand each other too!

    During this podcast, I really like the conversation about noticing beauty in others, easier than ourselves. I think it is interesting because everyone has some sort of insecurity that they just seem to think of right away as soon as they receive a compliment therefore, their responses tend to be “Oh haha uh, no no um stop it, thanks?” Which, you know, if someone is giving you a compliment they don’t want you to try and humble the situation– they just want you to acknowledge the beauty that they see. Whether or not that is communicated, people want other people to be happy. If someone gives a compliment they want that person to feel good about themselves, so why do we always respond as if we can’t feel good about ourselves? I think this conversation is so important because so many women compare themselves to other women all the time, their self worth is constantly in question. Taking the moment to reconnect with ourselves is the first step to being able to connect better with others.

      Wow, I loved your insight on this. I never thought of that and I guess this involves the same insegurities about what people think about you that if you don’t try to be humble you’re going to come across like braggy and that doesn’t make sense because as you said, if someone is giving you a compliment is because they want you to take it and own it! Love that 🙂

    The thing that I learned about myself listening to this episode was that even after having a horrible illness a person’s confidence about their body can go way down.The thing that I learned about culture is that body confidence is something many women and girls feel all the time with the images they see on TV, in movies, and in magazines.The thing that surprised me most is that after a horrible illness a person’s sex drive will go down and they will not feel like themselves.The way that I can enact what I learned in my own life and shift the conversation is to realize that having an illness only makes a person stronger and let the people around me know that confidence in yourself during good and bad times will only strengthen that person as a human.

    I absolutely loved the idea of creating “body maps” with your partner! I am guessing everyone struggles at some point communicating what parts of our own body feel uncomfortable due to past experiences and even I have had problems trying to explain myself yet the activity itself of drawing our body and pointing it out physically where I feel more pleasure vs not feels like such a stress-release situation for this type of conflict! Thank you so much for sharing it.
