Being Yourself in Relationship with The Yoni Empire


Part one of our conversation

Part two of our conversation

Elena Rossi is a pleasure and slow sex educator, co-founder of a sex toy company, and creator behind the popular Instagram account The Yoni Empire. Elena and I unpack what it means to be authentically you in all relationships, and what is so scary about that. 

This is part one of our two-part conversation. 

What you'll learn (or why you should care):

  • How not to dilute yourself when trying to attract a partner
  • The three options available to you when others won't meet your needs
  • How to distinguish between self-work and bringing it up to your partner
