Sex and Love, Lust and Infidelity with Wednesday Martin

Update: 2019-04-1011


Having a healthy sexual relationship is important.

But it’s not something we often talk about.

Women’s satisfaction especially seems to take a back seat.

So how can women get what they need in the bedroom?

As men, we can ask questions.

See what your partner is into.

And understanding the science behind why women like the things they do are helpful, too.

The truth is a lot of what we believe about female sexuality is wrong. We all benefit when women’s sexuality takes the forefront and is better understood.

On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about female satisfaction with an incredible woman who wrote a book on the subject: Wednesday Martin.

Wednesday Martin is a feminist cultural critic, New York Times Bestselling author, and social researcher. Wednesday has written on topics including gender, parenting and motherhood, popular culture, and female sexuality for The New York Times, The Atlantic, The Daily Beast, and Harper's Bazaar, among others. She was a regular contributor to The Daily Telegraph, the online edition of Psychology Today, and the parenting pages at the New York Post. Wednesday has appeared on the Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, NPR, NBC News, the BBC Newshour, and Fox News as a step/parenting expert.

Wednesday says that we should avoid “service sex” where you’re only performing to make your partner happy. You need to know that your needs deserve to be met, too, and they can be with a little work from both partners.

The theme of this episode: Monogamy is cool too or whatever, BUT, have you tried having multiple partners? Nothing wrong with just having sex with 1 person, but you're just pretending to be happy. Your religion or society is keeping you in this box. Monogamy is cool though. Don't worry.
