Could you go a year or longer without having sex? Meet Bruna, creator of The Problem with Dating, who is doing precisely that.
After reading her Cosmo article on the experience, I knew I wanted to have her on Girl Boner® Radio to discuss it. I’m so grateful she obliged. She joined me in the studio last week, for a super fun chat on her decision and its mighty takeaways.
About a year and a half ago, after having sex with a guy she’d started seeing, Bruna felt empty because he wasn’t willing to commit. Recognizing this wasn’t a sole case but a pattern in her dating life, she took pause.
“Why am I having sex with guys to try to lure them to stay?” she recalled asking herself. Determined to not let it happen again, she took sex off the table.
While Bruna recognizes that we all have our own definition of the “right” reasons for sex, she wants her own next experience to evolve from a mutually committed relationship—something stable with a solid foundation, that she doesn’t have to wonder about or overthink, and that she can completely surrender to.
I had a blast chatting with the dating guru about her experience, the surprising perks, how she’s dealt with temptation and how she imagines her next sexual experience will be. We also dipped into pubic hair wars, with the help of Dr. Megan, different kinds of ‘gasms—from skin-gasms and whispery Os to hands-free sleep-gasms—plus her advice for anyone seeking more authenticity in the dating realm. She’s witty, insightful and someone I can’t wait for your ears to meet. ;)
