Description

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! 


In this amazing first episode of the year, we delve into Depression and Sex! Meet JoEllen Notte. She runs redheadbedhead.com, and is a writer and sex educator, committed to challenging stigma, offering resources, and helping folks feel seen, heard, and supported. 


As per usual, we go through how life put her on this path and what led her to just recently signing a publishing deal for her upcoming book: The Monster Under The Bed: Sex, Depression and the Conversations We Aren't Having! As part of the book research, JoEllen surveyed 1,100 people and interviewed close to 200 about their experiences and shares some insights with us. 


Topics covered: moving across the country to soothe a broken heart, resentment as relationship cancer, "empathy, strategy or distraction", trends in the sex-positive movement, non-monogamy and lastly tools for how to deal with depression within a relationship. 


We reference Elle Chase, author of Curvy Girl Sex, check her out, and Stephen Biggs @psybiggs on Twitter. We also bring up Emily Nagoski's Come As You Are, because obviously. Read it. 


Thank you Steph Auteri, for introducing me to JoEllen.
