Her passion is to promote healthy aging in mind, body and spirit - through travel, adventure, and lusty sex. Those of us grappling with the challenges of aging are the lucky ones!

She is also a mom of three - an Australian physician,  LA musician and an Israeli soldier. Guess they took her travel advice pretty seriously ;-)

She wants us to know that nothing she posts is a substitute for face-to-face consultation with a physician, but we believe it is through education that we grow as individuals and as better partners.

Tony and Alisa DiLorenzo

Meet Tony and Alisa

We believe that the healthy combination of sex, love, and commitment is more than the foundation of a strong marriage… it’s the glue that will keep a marriage together.What has taken us on this journey, you ask?  tony and ailsa dilorenzo

Well, a combination of things.  Both bumps in the road and a ton of work… and recognizing that valuing our marriage means giving it time and attention (and a lot of TLC) so it grows and flourishes.

Our story isn’t one for the history books, but it has brought us to this place of knowing and sharing.  Relationships evolve and ours is no exception.

As a result of this journey, we created ONE Extraordinary Marriage to educate, entertain, encourage, and inspire you to have mind-blowing intimacy and a deep-level connection in your marriage.

Whether you listen to our podcast, read our articles, or connect with us through social media, we hope that ONE Extraordinary Marriage enhances your marriage and gives you the tools to make your marriage the absolute best it can be.

How Do You Define Intimacy?
 

Dr. Corey Carlisle 

Meet Dr. Corey

I don’t believe I’m alone in my desires for love and intimacy, and the hope I have to live a life full of meaning and purpose. I often wonder what God is up to in my life and how to make sense of the intense sexual desires He has given me.

Growing up I came to doubt my self-worth. I came to believe I was only worthy if I could be perfect and know all the right answers: biblically, academically, relationally, etc.

As it turned out, hiding behind the mask of perfectionism and knowledge actually kept me from true intimacy and a life of purpose.

On the outside everything looked good. I was the proverbial “good kid” and “nice guy.” But on the inside my heart was numb and dying. My soul grew thirsty and it was no longer enough to merely appear good. I wanted to drink deeply of life, to live passionately, and so started my journey toward wholehearted living.Dr. Corey Carlisle 

Slowly, I woke up to the presence of God in everyday life. As I learned to live in His presence, I discovered the sacredness of my work, my relationships, and even my sexuality.

Yes, there is still heartaches and pain, but His presence has brought profound joy and deep pleasure into my life. I’m learning to embrace ALL that God has for me as His child.

And so it has become my passion to also help you discover your relational, sexual, and spiritual best. I believe a more abundant life is available for you.

When facing the challenges of living well we might turn to well-meaning family and friends. However, they are not always able to provide the objective perspective we need. And not everyone is safe to share the private areas of our life with.

I want to create that personal space for you, free from the demands of others, to thoughtfully attend to the important and sensitive areas of your life.

As a calm and steady guide, I seek to bring vision and deep reflection to your story as you navigate the difficult and messy ordeals of life.

My hope is for you to use problems as an opportunity to grow and to enjoy life to the full, turning your breakdowns into breakthroughs.

As an ordained Christian minister, more than anything I want you to experience the freedom found in Christ so that you may fully pursue the desires God has written on your heart

My advance training and degrees in marriage and family, sexuality, and theology allow me to walk with you on your journey toward wholehearted living. The relational, sexual, and spiritual aspects of your life can all be addressed together.  This opens the door for deeper healing and harmony in your life.
