Nourish your relationship with the wisdom of loveology. Whet your appetite with disarmingly practical advice to create the healthy intimacy you crave. Satisfy your curiosity and find answers to your questions about how love and intimacy feed each other and create the foundation for authentic and sustainable loving relationships.

Each week explore the ecology of love through interviews with renowned sex therapists, leading green innovators, and thought provoking authors about how love leads us and gives meaning to life. By learning to apply the wisdom of sustainability to love, we begin to appreciate that being in relationship, having a family and history with someone is a precious resource. The huge amounts of trust, time and loving intention that we invest in our early relationships are actually renewable resources and the basis for our future health and well being.

Each week we will look creatively at the questions that plague our lives- Why then is it so difficult for so many of us to maintain our loving relationships? What skills and insights can we bring to our love relationships to allow them to flourish and sustain our lives into perpetuity?

This edition, we speak with Tina Tessina, a licensed psychotherapist in Southern California, with 30 years experience in counseling individuals and couples and author of 13 books. She is a Redbook Love Network expert and goes by “Dr. Romance” online, answering questions at and www.Yahoo! She has been seen on Oprah and Larry King Live and heard on countless radio programs.

We will be talking about her new books Money, Sex and Kids: Stop Fighting About the Three Things That Can Ruin Your Marriage (Adams Media 2008) and exploring what makes love and sex work. Don’t miss this lively discussion on the significant and yet, often misunderstood part of sustaining love: making love.

I enjoyed this conversation and I think both Tina and Wendy had great contributions. I did find Wendy to have a tendency to start to ask a question but have a hard time stopping talking after the question, or to answer it herself, or interrupt or ask yes or no questions by saying, right or do you find that to be true? It's Wendy's first show, so I'm sure she'll get more graceful with the interview format and balancing her contributions with her guest. I appreciate the content very much and enjoyed the conversation!

To me, the problems are contained in one word 'ego'.
