Today you want to plan a long hike. Take us with you. Then share it with a friend and listen together after they listen. If you’re listening for yourself, you’re still going to want to hit replay. 

What I love as much as anything about this episode is Dr John Gray became popular in the 80’s and 90’s. Today, in 2022, he got lit up during this episode. He is still as passionate and purposeful about what he is doing as ever. My wish for myself and for you is that we all have that kind of purpose-driven passion in our lives for as long as possible.

Libido and Hormone balance questions we answer in this episode:

04:48 Both my husband and I took early retirement … (we’re together a lot, he occupies a lot of my time and I have less freedom than I thought retirement was going to give) and our sex life isn’t great, what do we do? 

13:20 Does it help men produce testosterone when a woman asks him for help? 

I’m married, my husband works outside the home running his own business…and I’m running my own business from home… we’re both busy making a ton of decisions all day… It’s not easy to shift gears and connect at night. You had me at libido, any suggestions. Most women want to chat but even with girl friends I tend to be kind of “done talking” after a day.

26:20 I’m single, and distance relationship, I run a business and the last time we were together there weren’t any sparks…. Like any physical chemistry… it’s never been like that before. What’s that about? 

37:51 What are your views of hormone replacement?

  1. WOW!!! That was like drinking from a fire hose! And I will say my husband and I have worked smartly on our relationship for close to 43 years, more than 35 years of that being married, and I got a lot of new information from this as well as a lot of affirmation that we are on the right track to keep having great sex well into our 70’s!

    I can see why many people would be offended by this man and want to silence him. The truth is always controversial and, many times painful, because it forces us to look at ourselves and make a correct assessment. The truth is also the only way to be *truly free* Thank you for bringing us this great information!!!
