Jim Fleckenstein, Author of Love That Works, Shares Latest Research

Kitty is delighted to share her latest podcast interview that she released recently with Jim Fleckenstein, author, relationship coach, and educator.

Jim Fleckenstein became a relationship coach and educator because of his own life experiences. After the end of his 25-year marriage in 2000, he put the skills he’d gained from his successful non-profit career and his insatiable curiosity to work on relationships. He began a rigorous self-education process that included reaching out personally to leading researchers. His efforts quickly bore fruit. He created an organization that focuses on self-education, scientific research, and helping people have successful relationships. Along the way, Jim developed a unique approach to relationships based on proven methods he encountered over his years of study. Ultimately, he formalized this approach as his Affirmative Intimacy™ method. His book, Love That Works: 38 Awesome Hacks for Amazing Relationships, came out in December 2019.

I am delighted to share my latest podcast interview that I released recently with Jim Fleckenstein, author, relationship coach, and educator. Jim and I last connected when I interviewed him for Episode 148 when we were dealing with the beginning of the pandemic and social distancing. It was such a pleasure to welcome him back and hear all about his latest research, “Comparing the Self‑Reported Health, Happiness, and Marital Happiness of a Multinational Sample of Consensually Non‑Monogamous Adults with Those of the U.S. General Population: Additional Comparisons by Gender, Number of Sexual Partners, Frequency of Sex, and Marital Status,” which was published in Summer 2021. This ground-breaking work is truly super exciting, as it looked at the happiness of those who identify as consensually non-monogamous compared to those in the general population and found some amazing conclusions. There is much to uncover in this work, so if you’d like the “cliff notes,” I invite you to tune in to this episode and hear some of the biggest and most fascinating takeaways.

In this interview, Jim and I discuss…

  • The genesis of the initial research idea.
  • The size of the research study sample and some of its demographics.
  • Why they chose the General Social Survey as a control population and the pros and cons of doing so.
  • How happiness correlated with the number of sexual partners when that was in alignment with the respondent’s lifestyle choice.
  • Some of the differences he found among male-identified versus female-identified respondents.
  • The frequency of sex among the general and CNM populations and its correlation to happiness.
  • How his book, Love that Works: 38 Awesome Hacks for Amazing Relationships, can be a valuable resource for people in all types of relationships.
