Is your husband on your to do list? Laura M. Brotherson, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Certified Sex Therapist sat down with KSL Television's "Studio 5" host Brooke Walker to discuss four keys regarding what men really want in their marriages and how you can make your husband your top priority.

Laura's Topic: "12 Keys for Creating a Sextraordinary Marriage"

Women have been mysteries to themselves and their husbands for too long! Join Laura at the upcoming Interfaith Women's Conference as she highlights the 12 T's of female sexuality and why women tend to be four steps away from the feeling of desire. She'll share what is needed to shift from "duty sex" to "I want you" sex and provide simple suggestions for how to create a more connected, passionate and mutually fulfilling intimate relationship - a "sextraordinary marriage!"

Men want to be wanted! To help couples move from "duty sex" to "I want you" sex both husbands and wives have some work to do. Four principles ("ACES") that play an important role include:
  • A - Agency
  • C - Connection
  • E - Embracing One's Sexuality
  • S - Safety
Check out Laura's "ACES" -- How She Can Want To - handout for more information.

  • On average how often are you sexually intimate with your husband/wife?
  • What would be your preference for how many times you are sexually intimate with your husband/wife?
  • On a scale of 0 - 10 how comfortable are you discussing your sexual preferences, fantasies and desires with your spouse?
Survey says?...
