We are back with another Fox Tales episode, with stories of lives that challenge the status quo.This week we will hear the story of Bear and Fifi (@bear.n.fifi). A few years into their relationship, after slowly taking down their walls to lean into love and trust, Bear revealed to Fifi that he is transgender and that he wanted to go through the process of transitioning. In this episode, they candidly share the fear, mourning, connection, and surprise that they experience as individuals and as partners during Bear’s journey of discovery and embodiment. Kabir Brown (Bear) is a Black queer transgender man, born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. A clinical case manager for underserved communities, and a private intimacy coach + sex positive space curator, he uses his professional background and intersectional experience of identities to create affirming spaces for his clients. Sofia Mojica (Fifi) is a pansexual Puerto-Rican cis woman from The Bronx, NY. Using trauma-informed neo-tantric techniques, spiritual technologies, and somatic exercises, Fifi guides her clients to develop compassion toward themselves and remove barriers they may have around sex, intimacy, connecting to their physical bodies, and experiencing joy. To find out more about Bear and Fifi, visit their website bearandfifi.com and follow them on Instagram at @bear.n.fifi.To find more about Effy Blue and Jacqueline Misla, follow them at @wearecuriousfoxes, @coacheffyblue, and @jacquelinemisla on Instagram.If you have a question that you would like to explore on the show, reach out to us and we may answer your question on one of our upcoming episodes.

Is a relationship a success only if it progresses in a socially prescribed sequence of states from dating to till-death-do-us-apart - also known as the relationship escalator? What is solo polyamory and how is it different from good-old-fashion dating? Why does single-by-choice carry so much stigma?  Effy and Jacqueline invite journalist and author Amy Gahran to the show to discuss the relationship escalator, what it looks like to get off it or opt out of it in the first place, solo polyamory, voluntary singledom, couple’s privilege and its flip side, singleism.  Guiding us in this conversation is Amy Gahran (AKA Aggie Sez)Amy Gahran is the author of "Stepping Off the Relationship Escalator: Uncommon Love and Life."

What does it mean to put effort into relationships? Does one person always show up more than the other? Is relationship maths as simple as 50+50 makes 100%?In this revisited episode, Effy and Jacqueline sit down to work out what is the right maths when it comes to the division of effort that goes into a relationship while comparing parental relationship dynamics to adult romantic relationship dynamics. Not all relationships are created equal, not all effort is valued the same. To find more about Effy Blue and Jacqueline Misla, follow them at @wearecuriousfoxes, @coacheffyblue, and @jacquelinemisla on Instagram.If you have a question that you would like to explore on the show, reach out to us and we may answer your question on one of our upcoming episodes.

What does scientific research tell us about relationship satisfaction in non-monogamy? What can monogamous folks learn from the research done on non-monogamous relationships? How do monogamy and non-monogamy differ when it comes to relationship satisfaction, mate retention, and conflict resolution?   Effy and Jacqueline chat with Dr. Justin Mogilski about his international research on the best and the worst strategies for navigating consensually non-monogamous relationships. Dr. Mogilski’s research - the first one of its kind conducted with diversity in the data as a priority - identifies nine empirically supported strategies that result in higher relationship quality and sexual satisfaction in non-monogamous relationships. Our guide in this exploration is Dr. Justin Mogilski  Justin K. Mogilski earned his Ph.D. in evolutionary psychology in 2017 from Oakland University. He is an assistant professor at the University of South Carolina, Salkehatchie. He researches how evolution has shaped brain computation to adaptively guide the decisions that people make to initiate, maintain, and dissolve intimate relationships. He has published in evolutionary, social, personality, and sexual psychology journals on topics spanning mate poaching, infidelity, cross-gender friendship, consensual non-monogamy, intimate partner conflict, moral decision-making, morphometric cues of partner attractiveness, and multivariate statistical analyses of human mate preference.You can learn more about Dr. Mogilski:Twitter @justin_mogilskiFacebook lab page facebook.com/MogilskiLabIf you’d like to participate in Dr. Mogilski’s international study of how people maintain multiple, concurrent intimate partners (e.g., polyamory, swinging, open relationships), you can do so by clicking on the link below.

As Pride month comes to an end, we were curious: What keeps us from feeling proud of our gender or orientation? How does the politicalization of our gender and orientation impact the way we feel about ourselves? How can we create spaces - within ourselves and within our homes and communities - where our identity as LGBTQ folk can be nurtured? In this episode, Effy and Jacqueline speak with Dr. Ariana Moran and Maxx Fenning about identity formation, internal and external producers of shame and fear about our identity, and what we can do to help ourselves and others embrace the full expression of who we are. Dr. Ariana Moran is a clinical psychologist and the founder and owner of Elemental Psychology PLLC, based in Brooklyn, New York. Her work in the therapy room is focused on helping her clients align with the truest versions of themselves by healing the relationship to self and focusing on the intersections and integration of one’s multiple identities. She practices from a holistic, fundamentally nonjudgmental, feminist, and nonhierarchical framework that encourages her clients to feel empowered in their own agency. Ariana has additional specialization areas in trauma, climate anxiety/ ecotherapy, life transitions, mood disorders, and relationships.To find more about Dr. Ariana Moran, visit elementalpsych.com.Maxx Fenning is the founder and President of PRISM FL Inc, an LGBT nonprofit based in South Florida.

What does desire have to do with LGBTQ+ liberation? Is there room for eroticism within the fight for equity? Often when we tell or hear queer stories, they are stories of trauma, sadness and hardship. Even happy tales tend to be stories of overcoming obstacles, winning against adversity, healing from hurt.  In this episode, Effy and Jacqueline speak with Dr. Jaime Grant about how stories of pleasure, delight, satisfaction, and discovery are equally effective within the work towards LGBTQ+ justice - and even more so because they keep us focused on the world we are trying to create. Dr. Jaime M. Grant is a lesbian feminist activist, coach, and a sober mother of two, who came of age in feminist and racial justice movements in the 80s. Her sexual liberation workshop, Desire Mapping, has been produced on campuses and at LGBTQ rights conferences around the world; and her podcast, Just Sex, captures the stories of Desire Mappers. Grant’s research has appeared in The Harvard LGBTQ Policy Journal and in SIGNS, the Journal of Culture and Society. Her autobiographical writing appears in Leslea Newman’s The Femme Mystique and Rachel Epstein’s Who’s Your Daddy? She currently serves as research director for the National LGBTQ+ Women’s Community Survey.To find more about Dr. Jaime Grant, check @drjaimegrant on twitter, justsexpodcast and transformationsconsult websites.

Even though it sounds different why does it feel like we are having the same fight with our partners over and over again? What does it take to change the patterns we fall into when we are amidst an argument? What are some of the common mistakes that lock us into seemingly irreconcilable discourse? This week Effy and Jacqueline do a coaching session to address the argument patterns Jackie and her partner find themselves in over and over again. After a long text exchange in the middle of the night after one of those arguments, Effy and Jacqueline decide to unpack how Jackie and her partner fight in a recorded coaching session in the hopes that they can bring insight to everyone stuck in their own argument patterns. To find more about Effy Blue and Jacqueline Misla, follow them at @wearecuriousfoxes, @coacheffyblue, and @jacquelinemisla on Instagram.If you have a question that you would like to explore on the show, reach out to us and we may answer your question on one of our upcoming episodes.

Why do we say hurtful things to people we love? Why do we make agreements that we can’t or don’t want to keep? Why do we cheat, even when we are mindful of the consequences? Effy and Jacqueline go on a quest to figure out why we step out of integrity in our relationships with others and ourselves and what we can do to prevent those transgressions by exploring the hot-cold empathy gap coined by George Loewenstein, a psychologist and economist at Carnegie Mellon University. They look to the elephant and the rider analogy from the book Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard by Chip and Dan Heath to dissect those behaviour we all do and regret afterwards.To find more about Effy Blue and Jacqueline Misla, follow them at @wearecuriousfoxes, @coacheffyblue, and @jacquelinemisla on Instagram.If you have a question that you would like to explore on the show, reach out to us and we may answer your question on one of our upcoming episodes.
