Inspire Your Partner: Relationship Reality Check PT4

In a conversation between Dr. Phil McGraw and Dr. Justin Lehmiller, they discuss topics related to sexuality and relationships. They talk about the importance of inspiring and encouraging your partner rather than controlling them. Dr. Lehmiller shares his background in studying human sexuality and his interest in exploring sexual fantasies and desires. They address how the American culture appears sexually open but is actually repressed, and how people often feel uncomfortable discussing sex, even in therapy sessions.

Learn about the importance of open communication, normalizing sexual desires, and building strong, trusting relationships.

Inspire Your Partner: Relationship Reality Check PT4

Sexual Desire And Building A Strong Relationship

Dr. Justin Lehmiller received his Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Purdue University. He is a Research Fellow at The Kinsey Institute and author of the book Tell Me What You Want: The Science of Sexual Desire and How It Can Help You Improve Your Sex Life. Dr. Lehmiller is an award-winning educator, having been honored three times with the Certificate of Teaching Excellence from Harvard University, where he taught for several years.

He is also a prolific researcher and scholar who has published more than 50 academic works to date, including a textbook titled The Psychology of Human Sexuality (third edition forthcoming in 2023) that is used in college classrooms around the world.

Dr. Lehmiller’s research focuses on topics including casual sex, sexual fantasy, sexual health, and friends with benefits. His studies have appeared in all of the leading journals on human sexuality, including the Journal of Sex Research, Archives of Sexual Behavior, and The Journal of Sexual Medicine.

Sex and Psychology was created to share the science of sex and relationships in a way that is informative, engaging, and accessible. Unlike most sexual advice websites, this is not a personal, opinion-based blog; rather, the articles on this site are rooted in science and cite or link to the original research sources. The goal is to convey responsible and accurate information about sex and relationships and to correct the numerous myths and misconceptions that actively harm our sexual health and well-being. Most of us never received the sex education that we deserved—we either didn’t learn enough, or we were taught incorrect information. Sex and Psychology is here to fill in the gaps, answer your questions, and equip you with the tools you need to lead a happier and healthier sex life and build stronger relationships.

The largest survey of sexual fantasies in America – and what your fantasies say about you

What do Americans really want when it comes to sex? And is it possible for us to get what we want? Tell Me What You Want offers an unprecedented look into our fantasy worlds and what they reveal about us. It helps us to better understand our own sexual desires and how to attain them within our relationships, but also to appreciate why the desires of our partners may be so incredibly different.

If we only better understood the incredible diversity of human sexual desire and why this diversity exists in the first place, we would experience less distress, anxiety, and shame about our own sexual fantasies and better understand why our partners often have sexual proclivities that are so different from our own.

Huge thanks to for their incredible letter of recommendation writing service! I was stressing out about getting into med school, but their medical school letter of recommendation service came through for me big time. The letter they crafted was so impressive, and I know it played a big role in my acceptance. Seriously, these guys are worth every penny! If you're in a similar situation, definitely give them a shot!
