How Your Attachment Style Affects Your Sexual Relationships

If you’ve ever wondered why some of your romantic relationships feel like a rollercoaster ride, or why you struggle to connect emotionally with your partners, your attachment style may hold some clues.

By understanding your attachment style and how it influences your sexual relationships, you can gain insights into your desires, fears, and needs, and improve your intimacy and satisfaction.
