#82 The Truth About Women, Lust, and Adultery With Wednesday Martin, Ph.D
01:13:03

Wednesday Martin's newest work of non-fiction, UNTRUE: Why Nearly Everything We Believe About Women, Lust, and Adultery is Wrong and How the New Science Can Set Us Free cuts through the junk science and regressive cultural narratives that have shaped our beliefs about female infidelity for centuries, revealing a truth both liberating and disconcerting: women are no more “naturally monogamous” than men; nor are their libidos shrinking violets. Far from it.

Offering insights from thirty experts as well as real women from all walks of life who refuse monogamy, UNTRUE also analyzes cultural shifts from plow agriculture to polyamory; introduces readers to two important "hidden figures" of American sex research; and takes readers on an immersive, fascinating journey—from the bonobo enclosure at the San Diego Zoo to an exclusive all-female sex party in Manhattan where most of the revelers identify as heterosexual. UNTRUE asserts that monogamy is a tighter fit for the fairer sex; that females of many species evolved to be “promiscuous”; and that female sexual autonomy may be the most meaningful metric of gender equality. Rich with game-changing data and polemical writing, it promises to take us far out of our comfort zone, and may change the way you think about women and sex forever.

Wednesday Martin, Ph.D is a writer and feminist cultural critic. She is the author of seven books including instant #1 New York Times bestseller Primates of Park Avenue and UNTRUE: Why Nearly Everything We Believe About Women, Lust, and Adultery is Wrong and How the New Science Can Set Us Free. She has written for publications including New York Times, The Atlantic, and the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy. She has appeared on Good Morning America, The Today Show, CNN, the BBC, NPR, and more to discuss her work on gender, motherhood, female sexuality, and popular culture.

#76 Great Sex and Relationships After Trauma With Terah Harrison, LPC
01:16:28

In this touching episode Terah Harrison, LPC, shares her trauma story for the first time on air, alongside tips and tools for finding great sex and deep connection in the aftermath. Thank you, Terah, for speaking up and sharing your vulnerability with us.

Also, we answer a sex question about pegging (when a female-bodied individual tops/penetrates a male-bodied individual via a strap-on).

About Terah: Terah Harrison is a Licensed Professional Counselor and hosts the podcast Make More Love Not War which has a clear mission of helping people have more sex and less fighting.  She discovered the need for her podcast as she saw male clients at her private practice in Fort Worth Texas, who were struggling to understand their female partners.  Most of these men were striving to be better partners but their strategies to achieve this only made things worse.  Many times a simple change would improve their relationships dramatically.   

With this amazing information that would benefit men and the women they love in hand Terah wanted to reach more men but how without bending space time?  In her personal life she wanted her husband, Jeff, to go to couples therapy but alas, he would not. If a therapist’s husband won’t go to therapy how many other men are missing out on the knowledge that would get them more sex?  She noticed Jeff listening to podcasts every day and talking about what he learned from them.   The solution hit her like a bolt of lightning – create a podcast that will bring therapy to the men who for whatever reason don’t go.

Since Terah started the podcast she has been able to interview some amazing experts in love and relationships- authors, professors, therapists, and coaches.  She has also created a series that gives men a back stage pass into a woman’s mind called Whine With Wine and another series that highlights power couples as well as couples in conflict.

Terah’s podcast may be directed towards men but her EVIL Plan is really to help women have more connected relationships with men where they feel heard and understood in a way that leads to MORE SEX and LESS FIGHTING for all!!! To learn more visit www.makemorelovenotwar.com

#73 Slutty Girl Problems at the Sex Expo
32:57

Recorded on stage during Brooklyn's Sex Expo, we chat with Lorrae from Slutty Girl Problems. We apologize if it sounds like we were yelling; we were right next to the Sybian sex machine, so it was a bit loud :)

Slutty Girl Problems is for the self-identified women who embrace this empowered lifestyle. They offer a sex-positive, feminist, judgement-free zone with daily content to entertain, educate, and empower women around in all aspects of their lives.

What is a slut, you might ask? A slut is empowered in her sexuality. She is confident, in control, and doesn’t let anyone define her or her sexuality. She defines herself, and makes choices that are right for her.

Many people use the term “slut” to break women down and shame them for their natural sexuality. The folks at Slutty Girl Problems boldly reclaim this derogatory word as an empowering, sex-positive term – free from society’s shame and judgement.

Being a slut isn’t about sleeping with everyone, or anyone at all. It’s about having the choice to express your sexuality however you want to, and being empowered to act on it if you choose.

Slutty Girl Problems believes that all safe, sane, consensual sexual choices should be not only respected, but celebrated as a natural, pleasurable part of life. There is nothing wrong with having sex. Your pleasure is important, and sexuality does not determine your morality or worth.

#65 Sex and Religion With Andrew Jasko
39:28

Andrew was raised as the son of a minister in a Pentecostal Christian Church in New Jersey. Andrew studied Bible at the Evangelical Christian Wheaton College and obtained his Master of Divinity from Princeton Seminary. While religion was his life's passion, Andrew suffered greatly from anxiety, depression, and guilt about his sexuality. After a slow and painful process, Andrew awakened to a new spiritual experience through secular humanism, meditation, psychedelics, and sexuality.

Dr. Christopher Ryan is co-author of the New York Times best-seller, Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What it Means for Modern Relationships (translated into 15 languages), alongside his partner-in-crime (and wife), Cacilda Jethá, MD. Drawing upon his multi-cultural experience, Chris' research focused on distinguishing the human from the cultural, first by focusing on shamanism and ethnobotony—studying how various societies interact with altered states of consciousness and the sacred plants that provoke them—and later, by looking at similarly diverse cultural perspectives on sexuality. His doctoral dissertation was a multi-disciplinary investigation of prehistoric human sexual behavior, guided by the world-renowned psychologist, Stanley Krippner, at Saybrook Graduate School, in San Francisco, CA.

Chris is finishing a new book for Simon and Schuster tentatively called Civilized to Death: Why Everything's Amazing but Nobody's Happy, —and he puts out a weekly podcast, called Tangentially Speaking, featuring conversations with interesting people, ranging from famous comics to bank robbers to drug smugglers to porn stars to authors to plasma physicists.

#30 The Fifth Vital Sign With Erin Fisher
55:15

All women , at all ages, experience a variety of uncomfortable physical and emotional sensations in their body throughout their monthly cycle and throughout her phases of life as a woman. Some, and often many, of these experiences in the body make it quite difficult to function in their outer and inner landscape and world. Unfortunately, our culture see these sensations as symptoms of a "syndrome." We have been taught to deal the with pain, suppress challenging emotions, move on, and keep being an outward participant in society. A container, ritual, or rite of passage for women to align with their natural cycles has sadly been replaced with a pill that "normalizes" our cycles to what fits in a linear, masculine society.

Becoming in partnership with your body and re-learning to be deeply in tune with our feminine rhythm and cycles , can unlock more energy, grace, creativity, desire, and wisdom , which is waiting to be uncoiled.  Through knowledge about what is exactly going on with your cycle and hormones, detailed protocols , designed specifically for your feminine bio-individuality, and a greater awareness and knowledge on how to tap into your wisdom and feminine blueprint of your feminine cycles, I have confidence you will have the keys to unlock these doors of your wellness and your wisdom.
