“I've always been someone that people go to. So at school I was the secret keeper, I was always trying to help solve my friends’ relationship problems. It's been something from a really early age that I've always been keen to do, to help people.” - 5:31 - Annabelle Knight
“Being raised in a sexually positive environment is so important and so beneficial. I think a lot of people fear that if they were sex-positive that it's going to promote promiscuity.” - 8:47 - Annabelle Knight
“It's all about age appropriate education, being open and trying to take the stigma and embarrassment out of it so that your kids feel comfortable and confident to ask questions. Ultimately, you're going to be a really important source of information to them.” - 12:32 - Annabelle Knight
“Merely by saying ‘I think we both need to try harder’, and setting that challenge out there and getting the words out, you have taken a step towards controlling your relationship and your path.” - 19:05 - Annabelle Knight
“If you feel out of practice, that’s completely normal, but the good news is that everyone’s in the same boat. It's not like you've taken yourself out of the game for a year while everyone else has been busy dating and brushing upon their romantic skills.” - 21:57 - Annabelle Knight
“A gentle reminder that you're attractive, or could find other people attractive, is healthy in a relationship. You want your partner to be desirable; it's all about intent. If you have no intention of doing anything with those people then a bit of flirtation is completely healthy and natural.” - 25:39 - Annabelle Knight
“We all know exercise is good for building muscle and creating a strong body, but it's also great for your mental health, it’s great for your overall wellbeing, it gives you a sense of control and peace as well.” - 38:32 - Annabelle Knight
