Ep. 20 - A Porn Addiction or Perfectly Normal?

31-yr-old Rachel married 32-yr-old Paul three years ago. While still engaged, Rachel found a stack of magazines under Paul’s bed that she deemed pornographic and unacceptable. Rachel reports that the couple have had a good marriage and despite having a new baby, consistently have sex three times a week. However, Rachel continues to be disheartened and disturbed by thoughts of not being Paul’s “dream girl.” While admitting to be being bored by their sex life, Rachel believes giving into Paul’s requests for her to initiate sex will lessen her value in his eyes. Paula coaches Rachel on understanding men in the context of marriage and sex, and why she can put her doubts to bed. She also cautions Rachel that unless she begins to show Paul the fullness of her sexuality, Rachel will create what she fears most.
