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.

So, what does fearlessness have to do with sex? Good question. And I’m sure your next burning question is, “How do I have fearless sex?” 

Fearlessness and Sex

Practicing fearlessness in sexual encounters is not about having sex with complete strangers or having unsafe sex. Protecting yourself and your partners from potential emotional or physical harm is always recommended.

How to Date More Effectively: Learning to Take the Test

You have probably heard the age-old theory that people with great grades or academic success often are great test takers far more than excellent at retaining information. If you recall taking the SAT to get into college, so much of the preparation for that test was understanding how to take the test well, far more than trying to recall specific pieces of information.

There are parallels in this theory that also relate to dating. With that same perspective, you may be able to take the pressure off yourself as ...

COVID and Dating Your Partner

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected your day-to-day activities for almost a full year now. Sometimes it’s even hard to remember pre-COVID times when you made the last-minute decision to go to dinner or sit at a bar for happy hour, or even join in a communal table at a popular coffee shop. The pandemic has reduced the frequency of these popular social activities and because these experiences are highly scarce and limited now, they are valued more than ever before. You likely have a renewed appreciation for activities that ...
