It’s about to be summer and as the days – and nights – are heating up, we’ll explore how to have fearless sex.

If you’re new to Dr. Hick’s Guide to Living Fearless in 2015, I’ll give you the scoop. This year, we’re delving into what relationships could be like – what life could be like – if lived fearlessly. To date, we’ve explored the “how-to” basics: how to love yourself, dating fearlessly, how to rise in love instead of fall, and most recently, how to take a fearless look at your relationships in order to renew them. Dr. Hick is a Denver psychologist who specializes in coaching clients through relationships, anxiety, dating, and self-development.
