Description

Cristina Shy is an activist fighting for the rights of ALL consenting adults to share love, sex, relationship, residence and marriage, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, number of participants and whether or not they are related. Cristina’s activism is focused on Genetic Sexual Attraction and consanguinamory, and she joins NOL to explain why it’s important for people to know that not all incestuous relationships are abusive. In fact, many are completely consensual, loving and intensely special, as a result of what she explains further in the episode as the “double love bond”.



This is the first episode of two personal cases of consensual incest. Both episodes will shine the light on the flip side of Dr. Wish’s discussion, which zeroed in on non-consensual incest, specifically early childhood sexual abuse and the long-term effects of this trauma on adults.



Cristina, whose name and voice has been changed to protect her identity, tells her story of meeting her half-brother for the first time when she was 33, how she discovered GSA and was relieved to find that she was not alone, and why she is now one of the leaders of the movement of consanguinamorous people fighting to change the incest laws and gain the right to be in a relationship, have sex with, live with, and marry a relative. She also dispels the “Mutant Baby Myth”.



While she does not claim to be a professional counselor or lawyer, Cristina offers confidential one-on-one assistance to anyone experiencing GSA or consanguinamory who needs support, particularly when it comes to adoptions and reuniting with biological family members, or the legal issues associated with being consensual adults in an incestuous relationship.



To connect with Cristina and her consang-positive community, go to her website www.lilysgardener.com, visit her blog at cristinashy.tumblr.com or email her at lilysgardener@protonmail.com.  You can also join her Kindred Spirits forum ks2016.forumactif.fr



In the next episode as part of this series, you will hear another leader of the consanguinamorous movement, Jane Doe, as she describes her consensual incestuous relationship with her dad as a result of a lack of the Westermarck effect.  She will discuss incestophobia and their community's cry for acceptance, how porn is fetishizing her people and why the fetishists are NOT the same as consanguinamorous couples, and much more.

Documentary Director Samantha Rife On the Stigmas of Motherhood
Today we’re talking about an upcoming documentary and social impact campaign covering a topic you probably wouldn’t expect to be covered – motherhood.I never knew this myself, but mothers experience discrimination in the US, from deep-rooted assumptions about social or gender roles, for breastfeeding in public, and for not having a perfect body again after childbirth. Many women, particularly stay-at-home moms, become demoralized, feel alienated, and lose their personhood. They often lose their chance to return to their jobs.  Often, people judge them immediately when they say they are a full-time mom, assuming that they aren’t hard-working, that they aren’t intelligent or that they aren’t contributing members of society. Yet, they are molding society’s greatest assets – the next generation.My guest is the wonderful Samantha Rife, the Director and Executive Producer of the documentary film “Reclaim Motherhood”. She will share with us her mission behind this film and the associated campaign which will target corporate HR departments as well as middle schools, high schools and universities.  You will hear examples of the struggles that mothers often face at work, with the government, and in their communities. She also shares the importance of bridging the gap between people who choose to be parents and those who choose to be childless.Samantha is also the founder of SJR Research and for over 25 years, she has worked as a writer and researcher, and provided support for large and small projects in a wide variety of fields including History, Genealogy, Information Technology, Education, Writing/Editing, Film and Media, Communications, Marketing, Public Health/Social Services, managed Healthcare, Visual Arts, and much more. Samantha is a mother of 2 children – Joshua and Cassandra. She lives in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, with her husband Jamie.For more info about the documentary, or to contribute your personal donation to the production and campaign – even a few dollars will help this cause – visit reclaimmotherhood.com.

Wess Haubrich’s Call to Join The Nu Romantics
Wess Haubrich is a 31 year old self-trained photographer and visual artist who is no stranger to NOL . Listen to Wess’s first appearance on the show, where he shares how he kicked an addiction to Dilaudid and used art as a catharsis, to treat his depression, anxiety, and chronic migraines.  Listen here.Wess returns this time to discuss a new project he is a part of: The Nu Romantics, a group of like-minded lovers of art of all kinds, including books (especially erotica), pop art, photography, film, music, humor, poetry, culture and more. Founded by authors Mystk Knight, Ashlee Shades, Tori Jo Dean, and R.B. O’Brien, their goal is to help new, as well as more experienced artists, tap into and focus on their creativity, and especially to develop a more expanded version of the concept of "romantic".  As a matter of fact, they say they formed the group to revolt against the preconceived notions of romance as a happy ending.  Instead, their group spreads the message that romance can be found in everything, from nature to pain to the erotic...and even death.  The Nu Romantics passionately believe that, like in Wess’s story, art truly does save lives. The Nu Romantics are an active and growing presence on Facebook and Twitter (join the creative fun using #NuR or #NuRomantics as hash tags), with many writing and art prompts every week, with the explicit goal of getting the public to participate, and a vibrant online publication where Wess is an editor. Join in on an enlightening discussion about art through their dynamic weekly schedule at The Nu Romantics Facebook Group.The Nu Romantics Website: https://medium.com/the-nu-romantics
Dr. Tara Nayak On The Blood Type Diet and Generative Medicine
Today it's all about health, and the focus turns to the Blood Type Diet, the fascinating field of Epigenetics, generative medicine and more. I personally benefitted from trying the Blood Type Diet, which went from a 30-day experiment of changing my food choices to my now ongoing lifestyle.  I absolutely love it.  What's even more exciting is that I had no idea you could go much, much deeper with it, and literally shift your own DNA in order to avert disease that could be lurking in your genes.  My guest, Dr. Tara Nayak, a naturopathic practitioner in Philadelphia, PA and I discuss.Dr. Tara Nayak grew up knowing she wanted to be a doctor but not agreeing with our healthcare system, including overprescribing and lack of connection in patient care. She went on to Temple University to get my bachelor's degree in Biology but chose to concentrate heavily on genetics. At this time she took some of the FIRST courses ever offered at her university in the fields of epigenetic, genomics, and proteomics. (That tells you how new the fields of epigenetic, nutrigenomics, etc. really are!) She graduated in 2009, taught high school science for 2 years, then went back to medical school at the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine. It was here that she met Dr. Peter D'Adamo and forced herself under his wing. She took his classes, did clinical rotations with him, externships at his clinic, and was eventually selected as his resident physician at the Center of Excellence in Generative Medicine. This is a clinic where all patients are treated based upon blood type with the addition of further parameters to establish personalization including body measurements, lab tests, and history taking of their health and current symptoms.  Dr. Tara has continued to work with Dr. D'Adamo to learn and contribute to his latest developed tools in personalized medicine: 1. "Opus 23" which allows doctors to evaluate specific genes to assess patient risk and determine the best plan of action in terms of diet, nutrients, herbs, etc. and, 2. "Utopia" a micro biome analysis program that analyzes gut bacteria trends and guides dietary/supplementation decision to promote healthy gut flora. Dr. Tara contributes to editing and mining data for the program as well as participate in teaching other health care practitioners how to use this software in their practice. The two doctors have also collaborated on teaching doctoral level courses including "Nutritional Genomics and Epigenetics" and "Generative Medicine"Dr. Tara has a private practice in Philadelphia, PA and teaches at the University of Bridgeport's College of Naturopathic Medicine as well as Maryland University of Integrative Health's Doctorate of Clinical Nutrition Program. To find out more, visit: www.TaraNayakND.comTara Nayak, ND215-485-3427drtaranayak@gmail.com440 E Girard AvePhiladelphia, PA 19125Dr. Tara's videos on Youtube:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGF88PyfoopqVFnENZs4RoQDr. D'Adamo's sites:http://www.4yourtype.com/http://www.dadamo.com/

HG Tudor, Self-Described Narcissistic Psychopath, Shares Powerful Tips On Spotting and Dealing With His Kind
In the past, I’ve covered the topic of narcissism with psychologists or narc survivors, i.e. empaths or victims, however this episode shares extremely powerful information from the perspective of a highly self-aware narcissistic psychopath himself.His pseudonym is HG Tudor, and he writes extensively about his situation and mindset to enable people to understand how he and his kind think, behave and operate. Through this, he dispels myths about his kind, unlocks many of the secrets, and enables readers or listeners to understand, counter and escape the clutches of their personal narcissists.He conveys this unique perspective through ‘Knowing the Narcissist’, a blog which has attracted 5.6 million hits in under two years, and through similar platforms, including Facebook and YouTube. HG also has an extensive catalogue of books which address varying aspects of the narcissistic dynamic. HG’s desire is to weaponize empaths on a global scale, and he’s already helped thousands and thousands become empowered with information you can’t get anywhere else.Please visit his blog at www.narcsite.com, his YouTube channel ‘Knowing the Narcissist’ and his collection of books on Amazon.We discuss the varying levels of narcissism and the categories, the sources of fuel they seek, the typical pattern of a narcissistic relationship, how narcissists are created, why they target empaths, why empaths continuously get sucked back into a relationship with a narcissist, how narcissism sometimes plays out between siblings, whether or not a narcissist can change, and much, much more.I encourage you to find a quiet spot to really listen and focus on what HG shares. There is a TON of very useful information that you won’t want to miss. This episode will help you with family, friends, work colleagues and your romantic relationships.  If you need additional assistance, I encourage you to consult with HG.Enjoy.
Jane Doe, Consanguinamory Activist, Returns with New Data On Her Community
Jane Doe, the chief activist for the consanguinamory community (a minority group consenting to have adult blood relative relationships and who are fighting for the right to do it legally) returns in today's episode.  Jane asked me if she could have the chance to share data she collected on her group, including findings about their socio-economic status, what % of the population is consang, what types of relationships are most prevalent (parent-child, siblings, etc.), whether they choose to cohabitate or live apart, whether they have children or not (and who the children are with), how long their relationships generally last, and more.  She plans to leverage the data she's collected and combine it with future surveys that will focus on things like debunking the mutant baby myth and proving that being consang is an orientation, much like being gay.I'm still quite surprised to learn that there's an entire underground rights movement around this.  As such, the journalist in me comes out, and we tackle topics such as the moral questions general society has about their group, the fact that many states and countries already allow it, the similarities between her community's grassroots fight for equality and the LGBT community, and more.I have altered her voice, at her request, to protect her identity, so please bear that in mind as you listen.The complete survey data can be found at consanguinamory.wordpress.com/the-consanguinamory-study-analysis/If you wish to contact Jane directly, you can reach her via email at janedoeofks@protonmail.com.

Jane Doe On Consanguinamory As An Orientation
As part of NOL's series coverage on the taboo topic of incest, Jane Doe joins the show to take the conversation a step further.  She explains NON-GSA. This is quite different from Cristina’s experience of incest, when she met her half-brother at age 33. As you learned, GSA couples generally do not grow up together due to adoptions or fostering, and they meet later in life.Now, Jane explains how her lack of the Westermarck, or the “ew” effect when it comes to your blood relatives, resulted in an 8-year on-again/off-again relationship with her own father, starting at age 19. She debunks the myths associated with consensual, incestuous relationships, explains why the term incest should not be used when referring to consanguinamorous people since it implies abuse or trauma, shares information about how people who lack the Westermarck effect are actually wired differently, why she believes that consanguinamory is an orientation like being gay, how incest fetishists are causing problems for the consang community, why she is one of the leaders of the consang rights movement to begin the fight toward awareness, and ultimately the reversal of laws that currently make incest illegal, and much more.As with Cristina, Jane’s name and voice have been altered to protect her identity.Jane has offered additional information about her community and their movement through her website or private consang group.You can visit her website at https://consanguinamory.wordpress.com or forum Kindred Spirits ks2016.forumactif.fr.  Per Jane, all porn is filtered out and rejected.
Cristina Shy On Genetic Sexual Attraction
Cristina Shy is an activist fighting for the rights of ALL consenting adults to share love, sex, relationship, residence and marriage, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, number of participants and whether or not they are related. Cristina’s activism is focused on Genetic Sexual Attraction and consanguinamory, and she joins NOL to explain why it’s important for people to know that not all incestuous relationships are abusive. In fact, many are completely consensual, loving and intensely special, as a result of what she explains further in the episode as the “double love bond”.This is the first episode of two personal cases of consensual incest. Both episodes will shine the light on the flip side of Dr. Wish’s discussion, which zeroed in on non-consensual incest, specifically early childhood sexual abuse and the long-term effects of this trauma on adults.Cristina, whose name and voice has been changed to protect her identity, tells her story of meeting her half-brother for the first time when she was 33, how she discovered GSA and was relieved to find that she was not alone, and why she is now one of the leaders of the movement of consanguinamorous people fighting to change the incest laws and gain the right to be in a relationship, have sex with, live with, and marry a relative. She also dispels the “Mutant Baby Myth”.While she does not claim to be a professional counselor or lawyer, Cristina offers confidential one-on-one assistance to anyone experiencing GSA or consanguinamory who needs support, particularly when it comes to adoptions and reuniting with biological family members, or the legal issues associated with being consensual adults in an incestuous relationship.To connect with Cristina and her consang-positive community, go to her website www.lilysgardener.com, visit her blog at cristinashy.tumblr.com or email her at lilysgardener@protonmail.com.  You can also join her Kindred Spirits forum ks2016.forumactif.frIn the next episode as part of this series, you will hear another leader of the consanguinamorous movement, Jane Doe, as she describes her consensual incestuous relationship with her dad as a result of a lack of the Westermarck effect.  She will discuss incestophobia and their community's cry for acceptance, how porn is fetishizing her people and why the fetishists are NOT the same as consanguinamorous couples, and much more.
