What Do Long-Term Couples Who Can’t Keep Their Hands Off Each Other Have In Common?

The Lovers Play Course! 

What Do Long-Term Couples Who Can’t Keep Their Hands Off Each Other Have In Common?

And how can you go from feeling like glorified roommates — to whispering to your friends that the sex just keeps getting hotter and you feel more in love than ever.

We’re going to show you in just
6 short weeks, inside
The Lovers Play Course! 

We all know at least one couple who are still in
ga-ga level love, even after all these years.
  • You can see the electricity between them. (And it’s not static cling.)
  • They get all sparkly when they talk about the other. 
  • And they’re still courting each other
    5, 10, even 50 years in.

Hold up. Before you think, “That’s nice for those [insert your favorite swear noun here], but we’ve — ahem, I’ve — already got a stack of relationship books, I’ve tried dropping hints, and there’s lingerie somewhere in the closet...” keep reading. 

Because even if you feel 98.9% certain that that kind of love life is only for newlyweds, made-for-TV-movies, and annoyingly cute couples on Instagram, there’s one thing that no one’s talking about.

And it involves literally NO "WORK."   

Let’s be real.
Who wants to “work”
on their relationship?

Especially when you’re both already beyond busy,
and it’s a miracle the houseplants are still alive.
(At least last time you checked.)

Scheduling sexy time isn’t *exactly* sexy, and if/when the time comes: 
  • One (or both) of you is too tired.
  • ​It takes a long time to get into it because you can’t turn off your to-do list.
  • ​It’s more routine than risqué. Do you really need to break out the sexy dice you got as a joke?
What’s it take to not just spice things up, but to become sexy best friends for life?

How do you get back to having dates
that rival the best RomComs?

  • To feel the tingle across the room, house, and even the planet..
  • Connect deeply, and surprise and delight each other no matter how long you’ve been together (way beyond conversations about chores, kids, and plain old venting)
  • Cuddle, hug, kiss, and “you know what” like that first hot month of dating.
  • ​Instantly diffuse those stressful, bickering moments and turn them into “Hey, babe, let’s do something new!” 
  • ​And get the FUN back?
We get it! You want to keep that sexy spark lit. 
So what, exactly, IS it?

How can you demystify the je ne sais quoi… and send your relationship into the stratosphere?

Give us 6 short weeks, and we’ll give you the relationship education you were never taught.

THE Antidote to Boring Routines, Relationship Stress, and Sexless Nights.
For years, our high-powered clients came to us because they wanted fun, joy, and satisfying sex to come easily. 

They were smart. They were willing. But what they were trying on their own wasn’t working. 

So, we let them in on our little secret to success…
It’s PLAY!
At first, “play” might sound a bit simplistic, but we’re about to share how to make every day feel like way back when....

When you missed each other after 5 minutes and when things just felt easy and, dare we say, magical.

The truth is that very few people ever see healthy examples of long-term couples being playful with each other.

But think back to how fun and playful you were back in the early days of your relationship. 

You flirted. You did the unexpected. You surprised each other. You were fascinated by what the other person had to say.
The Lovers Play Course is the only program to focus on play as the primary vehicle for growth and expansion in relationships. 
It’s the only course to focus on play as the path for transforming conflict into connection. 

It’s the only program of its kind to leverage those everyday moments of “blah” into opportunities for fiery and fun connection.

And this is the first time we’ve created a way for you to get these skills from us — without being a one-on-one private client.

We can’t wait to show you how to create this level of joy with your beloved. In six months from now, you’ll be wanting to gush to everyone about how you flipped the script and feel like a totally new couple. 

You definitely want 
to work with them.

“Marla & Julian are the most epic couple ever! If you get a chance, you definitely want to work with them. Buckle your seat belt, your life’s about to get radically transformed in the best way!”

Dr. Erin Fall Haskell 
Doctor of Divinity
Founder of Soulciété & New Thought Global, TV Host Good Morning LaLa Land
What’s special about this experience is that it doesn’t give you a long list of things to add to your to-do list. 
In fact, you might feel like you have even more free time because you’ve got that neverending newlywed sparkle. 

Spend an hour a week with us, and you’ll get new tools to become more playful in everyday moments with your sweetie… and make unexpected magic in the bedroom. 

You’ll learn how to enjoy each other without adding time to the calendar, and relationship skills to:

  • Practice that eternal playfulness that fuels the fire without you feeling like you have to do anything “extra”
  • ​Open doors you thought were closed forever that amplify your connection
    (oh hey love sparks!) 💫
  • Diffuse tension quickly and in a playful way 
  • Communicate clearly through play that makes it feel easy and light 
  • Break the “date night” monotony and nourish your relationship in new ways
  • ​Grow an unbreakable Sexy Best Friend Bond 
  • ​Know how to effortlessly switch from “work mode” to “in the mood” 
Here’s what’s waiting for you inside THE LOVERS PLAY COURSE

In this kick-off module, we’ll show you what most people never learn about creating a loving, sexy and supportive partnership. 

No slogging through endless processing or conversations where you don’t feel gotten or heard. We’ll show you how to make emotional intimacy happen on the spot — and feel practically effortless.

These tiny moments build up to deep satisfaction in the bedroom (Hello!) and carry over into all your other moments together.

Rediscover Your Sexy

In Module 2, we hand over the truth bombs that create lasting and lusty love. (Because birthday sex ain’t enough!)

We’ll show you how to get your partner to crave seeing you again (even when you’re literally in the next room). 

And once you learn about how to crank up the sexy best friend bond, get ready to experience the deepest level of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual attraction there is. 

This is an experience you cannot miss... We’re talking a Princess Bride, pirates-can’t-keep-up-apart level of love!

  • How one little shift in how you play together will take you barreling down the road to more joy, love, and p-p-pleasure in your Union.
  • Break free of your comfort zones and remember how thrilling a simple touch can be — even if that lovin’ feeling seems a zillion miles away at the moment.
In this module, you’ll learn how you can break out of your routine and make foreplay happen all! day! long!

You’ll get an advanced degree in shaking things up as you master the fun art of sexual edging. 

We’ll also give you word-for-word scripts for what to say when things are feeling funky — so you can expertly pivot and both get what you want!

Turn Conflict into Connection 

  • Turn any conflict into a fun game that you both get to win!
  • Find your silly as you become a master of de-escalating tense moments with the element of surprise
  • Access our proven communication strategies that lead to deep, deep intimacy
While conflict is bound to arise in any relationship, it doesn’t have to divide. In fact, when you know how to handle it, conflict can even be — gasp! — fun.

In this module, we’ll guide you through practices that help you turn conflict into a positive so you can come out on the other side as a stronger and more connected couple.

While you might not ever get to the point where you look forward to conflict, you’ll be able to flip it into profound bonding moments you can laugh about.

This is how you make a quantum leap in your relationship so you can get to that full-time playful way of life!

is contagious.

“Marla and Julian’s love is palpable. Their playfulness and laughter is contagious. What I love most about them is the way they stand by each other. They are beautiful advocates for each other’s best interest, higher self, and wholeness. 

I’ve known them as dear friends and colleagues for many years. I love the way they continually explore life, deeper love, and greater potential. (Just how good it CAN get.) The sacredness of their love and relationship is beautiful!

Because of how they personally live, I highly recommend them as guides for learning and exploring about love, both deeper self-love and in relationship.”
