Let’s talk opening up relationships! Today's podcast is about our sexy vacation to Desire Resort & Spa Riviera Maya. We're talking about how to navigate the conversation of opening up your relationship, how to communicate your wants & wishes inside and outside the bedroom, your wandering desire for others, and how to invite another couple/single to play with you while staying at a sexy resort like Desire.

This is part 2 of our conversation on masculinity where we get real about the challenges men face with strict gender conformity and how it ties in with relationships. Today we’re focusing on sex - the myths, the misconceptions, and the reflections. We unpack some of the biases and challenges that men face in the bedroom.Here are a few of the ideas we discuss:>>Boys’ first experiences with porn and sexual excitement - who is teaching boys about sexual education?>>Exploring Erectile Dysfunction as a manifestation of a vulnerable internal state of mind: anxiety, self-esteem, body-image, depression, performance anxiety, etc.>>What are some ways that men would prefer to be treated in relationships?>>Keeping your partner current on what you want from the relationship sexually and emotionally>>The importance of sexual communication within relationships and during the heat of the moment>>The myth that men are “easy” and constantly “ready to go” sexually>>The patriarchal policing of men by using the term “gay” for a man who doesn’t follow the hetero-normative male code>>Sexual fluidity is not the same thing as sexual orientation, and the stereotypes of men who are more sexual fluid with the same sex
Today, I’m sitting down with a room full of diverse men to talk about the challenges of masculinity. The reason I wanted to facilitate this discussion is to bring to light some of the points and perspectives on what it means to be a man in modern day, told by men. Everyone, regardless of how they present or identify, should have a vested interest in loosening the tight grip of patriarchal masculinity because it not only hurts women and LGBTQ people, but it hurts men, too.Here are a few of the ideas we discuss:1. The overwhelming statistics of violence by men, not just to others, but to themselves (suicide), and the gaping void of close friends they can turn to in crisis within individualistic societies2. The myth of the “real man”... who is this mythical man?!The lack of vulnerability men are “allowed” to show, especially when it affects their physical and emotional wellbeing3. When the tough guise of manliness serves a purpose as an adaptive mechanism (combat zones, police force, etc) versus when it’s maladaptive (in family life, relationships, with our children, etc)4. The lack of healthy leadership for boys as they transition into adulthood, that directly impacts their ability to be good, present fathers and learn how to enjoy their sexuality in a healthy way5. The socialization of men into being autonomous and not asking for help, even when situations are dire
Welcome to episode 29 of F*ck Like a Woman. Today, I’m talking about transgression - what’s behind it, why do we do it, and how do we make sense of it within committed relationships. And because you can’t really talk about transgression without mentioning monogamy and attraction for others, we’re talking about that, too. Oh, and a disclaimer before you hear this episode: the vibe we’re putting off in this episode did not happen overnight. It took years for us to be this open, honest, and playful with each other, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Enjoy!
Today, I talk with trusted hot sex advisor to millions, the famous Susan Bratton, as she shares all the ways women can orgasm, how to initiate dirty talk, her favorite sex toys, and much more. Susan is a champion and advocate for all who desire passionate relationships. Considered the “Dear Abby of Sex,” Susan’s fresh approach and original ideas have helped millions of people of all ages and across the gender spectrum transform sex into passion.
This episode is an erotic story about one woman who found herself enticed by the forbidden: her roommate’s boyfriend. This moral dilemma left her puzzled and conflicted as to why this transgression was so alluring. As a coach who is greatly inspired by Esther Perel, I've always known that the world is not black and white, strictly good or bad. There's an infinite amount of grey that complicates our human experience, and when we immediately condemn and demonize before we have even sought to understand why, we miss the lessons within the journey, and we disillusion ourselves into believing that mere morality will inoculate us from history repeating itself.
If you've ever struggled with guilt or shame around your sexuality that has roots in your religion, listen to this couple share their embarrassing and raw struggles with managing sexual desire while conflicting with the shaming messages from their faith. Creators of the "Show Up Naked" podcast, Eric & Stephanie Molletta, confess to all the humiliating details surrounding the shame & guilt of their religious past.
As the #MeToo movement progresses, men are feeling anxious about navigating the current climate with gender norms changing and masculinity being under scrutiny. Today, I’m discussing toxic masculinity, redefining gender roles, and how some of our sexual stereotypes about men directly impact their sex lives in a negative way. I'm not going to encourage sensitivity or discarding masculinity altogether, but the parts that continue to be toxic to men, women, and children have to go.

The End of an Affair

Today’s show is based on a true story about an affair. Marco, a successful businessman, finds himself unexpectedly in the throws of an affair, and is left conflicted about the dilemmas facing his marriage. My hope is that that through the telling of this story, we might add a little complexity and helpful insight to an age-old dilemma for the sake of relationships everywhere, and especially for anyone who has ever loved.
