Julianne Hough reveals a sex therapist ‘saved her relationship’ with Brooks Laich

Julianne Hough has revealed a sex therapist ‘saved’ her relationship with husband Brooks Laich. 

The America’s Got Talent judge, 30, married the ice hockey player, 36, in July 2017 after four years of dating, but admitted they have sought professional help to learn how to ‘please each other sexually, but also intimately’.

The professional dancer explained the couple’s ‘curiosity’ managed to ‘save’ their relationship ‘many times’ because the process helped them to determine each other’s ‘erotic blueprint’.

Speaking on her husband’s How Men Think podcast, Julianne explained: ‘A lot of people don’t know even what they want. 

‘My curiosity has saved my life and honestly saved our relationship many times because we’ve been curious about like, “Hey, something doesn’t feel right. Instead of just accepting it for how it is, let’s look into something”.’ 

The couple consulted an online sex therapist, to improve their intimate life by taking compatibility tests to see how they differed in ‘connection’.

She added: ‘When I took the test, I realised that there were certain things that gave me connection and intimacy that were different than what gave Brooks connection and intimacy.

‘By almost learning each other’s language, sort of like love languages, it was almost like a menu of how we could please each other sexually, but also intimately.’ 

Prior to her guest appearance on the podcast being released for download, Brooks shared with People he hopes listeners can take some of what’s shared and apply it to their own relationships, as this interview is ‘the most open and raw we’ve ever been.’

‘We have never been so specific, detailed and open about exactly what goes on in our relationship and our respective thoughts and approaches to intimacy and sex,’ he said.

The sportsman said his wife of two years is way more advanced than he is in the area of sex and intimacy, so she was the perfect guest for the show.

He added: ‘We have amazing discussions at home, but this was another discussion of learning, growth and understanding of each other.

‘This is an area in my life that I want to learn more, and my wife is vastly more evolved in this area. For her to come on and share … it was just so powerful.’

The online series is described as focusing on ‘relationships, marriage, children, health, wellness, lifestyle, self-discovery and the world,’ in it’s description. 

The Dancing With the Stars pro and NHL star began dating in December 2013; they went public with their romance in February of the following year.

The duo revealed their engagement on August 18, 2015 before tying the knot on July 8, 2017 in Idaho.

The candid couple recently opened up on their attempt to start a family using IVF (in vitro fertilisation) because Julianne’s battle with endometriosis made it hard to conceive naturally.

The hockey star said he is full of admiration for his wife because of the invasive processes she’s had to go through.

He told People: ‘Knowing she has endometriosis, it could potentially make things challenging in the future to conceive naturally.

‘That was just a looking at the big picture and what we want as a family. The commitment that she made to us having a family is something I’ll never forget.’

The dancer has also had her eggs frozen and was called a ‘champion’ by her husband after enduring three injections a day for two weeks and dealing with mood swings caused by the hormone treatments. 

Brooks added: ‘As a husband, I just go into full support mode. Whatever my wife needs, whatever I can do, I’m fighting the smallest portion of the fight with her.’
