When is it right to take it to the next level with someone you're dating? When does it feel okay for YOU to sleep with someone new? This is another AMAZING and ENLIGHTENING episode where all of YOU share your ideas, experiences and unique points-of-view! It's so crazy and fab how we all approach this differently, and most of the time, our thoughts are left unsaid. We can learn lots from speaking openly about sex and our values, to discover new ways that could work for us. 💭 In here, we've got those who prefer to wait, those with a five-date-rule, those who lay their cards out on the table on the first meet, and those who share how their mindset towards sex shifts when they're in different countries and cultures. At the end, I share the main learnings, and leave YOU to decide if you might evolve your approach to intimacy.______THANKS ONCE AGAIN, TO EVERYONE WHO GOT INVOLVED and your patience with my messages! You've made season 2 much more varied, boosted listenership, and helped me learn A TON!!
IF YOU'VE EVER FELT NOT GOOD ENOUGH, THAT YOU'RE CONSTANTLY COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS OR TRYING TO CHANGE TO FIT IN - STOP AND LISTEN TO THIS. When writing this title, I was deciding between the words 'overcoming, 'conquering,' and 'battling' the pressures of modern life but none of them quite fit... The reason for choosing 'getting through,' was because overall, it's an ongoing process – society changes quicker than your knickers, and the approaches and tools we can use to keep up, are continuously arising too. So here are mine...____In this episode, I outline three major influences that shape our upbringing, beliefs of the world and our decisions towards adulthood, including the media, our parents and social institutions. Pulling on my own troubled transition from teens to twenties, I share how I learnt to establish my own value outside of the one prescribed of me by Western society. I came to realize that I was trying to fit in, and abide by, the more favoured human qualities and achievements, such as extroversion, thinness, higher academic grades versus other talents, working until it hurts, obedience, and pursuing only a few career paths. THERE IS NO ONE TRUTH, AND EVERY INDIVIDUAL HAS HUGE VALUE TO OFFER OUTSIDE OF THESE.____There isn't a one-size-fits-all solution, but with new awareness and by spending time with ourselves, we can rewire our thinking to become happier again!____I HOPE YOU GET HEAPS OF VALUE FROM THIS. If you have any more ideas or thoughts of your own, DM me on IG @a_blanx – I read them all!

THE BIG 4 LETTER WORD gets its moment! What is Love? (baby don't hurt me...). Is Love a feeling, a verb, a noun? Is it organic or does it require effort? How does Love differ between romantic and non-romantic relationships? Lucy Gutierrez (host of The L Podcast) and I delve into this fascinating subject pulling on pivotal experiences, such as a big break-up and how persistency is NOT the key to success, not having a father figure around, and the importance of understanding how you RECEIVE and GIVE Love across your various relationships. After talking on commom quotes on Love, including 'Trust is the key,' 'Communication is the key,' Lucy leaves us with this gem- 'Love is a choice and an action.' TUNE IN TO LEARN WHY!! SHE IS SO WISE AND ELOQUENT (but sadly not single - she got back with her ex just before recording this August episode!.#FilmStory). Find her on IG @lifewithlucero or listen to our other chat on her podcast about key life lessons: for listening. Please subscribe, rate and review wherever you can - SHARE THE LOVE!  :D

S2: The Episode on Anxiety

S2: The Episode on Anxiety


You guys asked for this one! Anxiety comes in various forms and is triggered by a range of things rooted in the beliefs of an individual. This episode covers info and insight about, what appears to be, a modern phenomenon; what is anxiety? What are the symptoms? How can I manage it or get rid of it? I explore all of these based on my own experiences related to work, the future, relationships (romantic and non-romantic) and health, as well as drawing on some informative sources. There's also some great mental health accounts to follow for encouragement & tips, PLUS how one London school is going above and beyond to boost the mental health of children!HOPE YOU'RE ALL DOING WELL!_______________Please leave a review or rate me on Apple podcasts if you loved this episode! 🙏 You can also subscribe on Google podcasts, Spotify, Acast, Podbean, Stitcher & many more!

There's dealing with emotions (which is friggin' hard enough) and then there's dealing with TWO sets of emotions in a relationship! No one teaches us how to navigate the road-bumps or sticky situations when dating. IT'S A LOT but it can be simplified with some awareness and pausing before a reaction. This episode centres around respecting your own feelings, whilst appreciating the needs of the other. I open up about my own experiences as well as those of friends; about going back to ex, vulnerability, sexual health conversations and break-ups.___________If you have any questions about relationships, handling emotions or experiences of your own, message me on IG @a_blanx. I LOVE HEARING FROM YA and plan to incorporate them into future episodes! That goes for any other themes you're interested in.Please rate and review on Apple podcasts or subscribe on Spotify, Google podcasts, Apple podcasts, Acast - wherever you listen!
