I just wanted to elaborate on the core beliefs part of the podcast, now this is a little difficult to explain because me and my boyfriend have been together for a year, and already we are both 100% sure we are going to get married, and this is not because of the lovey dovey stage. We (from the beginning) have gotten along so well, so much that we never fight. (and I don't mean it like "we rarely fight") we've talked alot about having a family but in the beginning I was 100% against it, but I found that growing with my loved one has got me changing my mind. I am honestly deathly afraid of pain, and knowing about how painful giving birth is really scared me off from it, even as a kid , when some would dream of having a family, I wanted to steer far away from that. anyway, my point is that being in a beautiful and secure relationship has changed my way of thinking. It's incredible how the right person being in your life can effect you.

I can't believe this episode states porn use is "ok" and "normal" and that it can even positively impact a relationship. Are you serious?! Do some research on the harmful effects of porn. Porn also fuels the demand for sex trafficking! People should feel VERY ashamed if they are watching this garbage. It's NOT an "anti-masturbation" issue!! Porn is also incredibly fake. It puts these false ideas about sex into people heads (especially young people). It's not real! Talk openly to your SO about your fantasies, what you like/don't like and have fun WITH your partner. Leave the garbage out of it. Wow...you lost a listener because of this episode. I'm disappointed 🙁

Interesting episode! One thing that bothered me though was the use of the word "female". Maybe consider using "men and women" instead of "men and females".

I wish he'd quit referring to couples as "opposite sex". These issues apply to same sex couples as well

thanks for this episode. my wife and I were strong Christians when we got married 13 years ago. I became an atheist and it's hard. I worry about my short life and want to grow and try new things. it unnerves my wife.

Your opening question - the one you always ask - is redundant. Everyone gives a different version of the same reply. Skip it!

I think if you guys left each other at a good note with no feeling attached then you can be friends. But if you still have feelings for your ex then you should not lie to yourself because you can NOT be friends. great podcast
