It's amazing how closely linked food and sexuality can be in our mind, often without our even realizing it. We may spend years dieting with the goal of having a more attractive body that will one day bring us our soul mate, or we might find ourselves turning to food for comfort when relationships are stressful. We might even look to certain ingredients as aphrodisiacs when our desire levels seem to be low. There are so many ways our relationship with food can intertwine with our thoughts and feelings toward romance, sexuality and intimacy. Sometimes these connections will be positive and life-affirming, but at other times, our concerns with food can get in the way of our love life. In this eye-opening new podcast episode, Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, looks at what can happen when food issues take over - and how we can reclaim our sexuality in the midst of our beautiful human imperfection.
