Nitasha Strait, Ph.D: Understanding the Effect of Lust on Romantic Relationships | Reloscope #15

How does sexual desire affect our romantic relationship? Is sexual desire essential for a romantic relationship? 

In this episode of Reloscope: The Relationships Science Insights Podcast, host Aditi Kutty will discuss the effect of lust/ sexual desire with Nitasha Strait, Ph.D., M.Ed., MA, LMFT, CST–the owner/CEO of The Better You Institute, LLC, where she is a licensed marriage and family therapist, certified sex therapist, and clinical supervisor specializing in couples and sex therapy.

She started working in community-based programs throughout Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Here, she learned the power of family systems and attachment. Within your family system, you discover more discover more about relationships and yourself. Sometimes, this learning can serve you in adulthood, and sometimes what you’ve learned is maladaptive for adulthood. 

Nitasha realized how big of a gap or how much misinformation there often was in her clients’ learned narratives about sex and sexuality and how greatly that impacted them daily with themselves and their loved ones. It has become her life’s mission to serve as many people as possible, helping individuals untangle sexual scripts that block them from getting what they want.   

Aditi and Nitasha discuss the effects of sexual desire and lust on our romantic relationships, the definition of lust, and whether it is a must to have a sexual desire when we have a romantic relationship, and how that manifests in a healthy relationship.
