Why is it so common to have sex with your ex? It leaves us half stuck in the relationship while we're trying to emotionally detach, but it floods us with hormones and neurotransmitters that make detachment really hard to do. So how do you stop?

Elle and Sarah discuss the very practical reasons why we decide to have sex with an ex in the first place and then discuss how to stop, or how to recover if you’re having a hard time staying away. If you find yourself in that messy situation where you turn to your ex for sex, listen to this podcast to help you understand what exactly is keeping you hooked and how to walk away. You can listen to the episode on Podcasts or SoundCloud. If you like it, be sure to share it with a friend and subscribe to get future episodes!
