Could late night raids of the refrigerator or urges to eat compulsively be a substitute for love, sexuality and intimacy? According to psychotherapist Mary Anne Cohen, they often are. In this show, we explore the similarities and differences between emotional eating, intimacy and sex.
Some questions I ask:
- What is emotional eating?
- Is there a connection between emotional eating and sexuality?
- What are some common fears around intimacy and expressing one’s sexuality?
- Is there a connection between sexual abuse and eating disorders?
- How does one declare peace with emotional eating and sexuality?
