Understand and Overcome Sexual Shame | Stevie Hall, Sex Therapist

Sex is meant to be a meaningful, connected experience with ourselves and our partners. However, for many of us, the shame of culture, family values, inadequate sex education, and inability to cope effectively has lead us to have a painful relationship with sex. This relationship can lead to us to not only begin to resent sex, and shame ourselves. Sex addiction can be a result from this unhealthy relationship with sex causing behaviors including compulsive porn use, multiple affairs (emotional and sexual), prostitutes and prostitution, exhibitionism, and more. Sexual addiction can be very isolating and filled with cycles of shame and despair that further continue the acting out behaviors.

Our guest today, Stevie Hall is a sex therapist and certified sex addiction therapist in Dallas, Texas at LifeWorks Recovery. Her passion is helping men and women develop a healthy relationship with sex by overcoming shame and anxiety, and embracing a confident, shame free sexuality. Stevie discusses how her own relationship with sexuality had been impacted by her culture, past abuse, and inadequate education.

If you have past issues with sexual abuse, this show is filled with great information to help you have a more positive view of sex. If you fill that you will be triggered by a show that discusses sexual abuse in anyway, please turn this podcast off now.

How Can Kink Improve Your Relationship? | Midori

“Domination's the name of the game in bed or in life, They're both just the same, Except in one you're fulfilled at the end of the day, Let's play master and servant”.

This is how Depeche Mode described what is now called “Kink” in their hit song “Master And Servant”. When I first heard this song as a teenager, I had no idea what they were talking about. I just thought it was a cool song from one of my favorite bands and to be completely open at the time making out with a boy was as far as I could even think about. Now I understand what they are talking about but like many of us I don’t know the deep down value of this play. What draws someone to dominating another person in bed or even better why would someone want to be dominated? Is this just fun couple’s play or is there something about it that being treated like a dog helps balance a person out? Like many of you I’m curious to learn more; to answer these questions and more we interviewed “The Supernova of Kink” from San Francisco. With a title like that we should get to the bottom of this matter…..then SPANK the hell out of it!

Our guest today, Midori “The Supernova of Kink” is a renowned educator and writer on sexuality that emerged from the Sex Positive Movement in San Francisco in the early 1990’s.

Midori is known for tackling challenging topics with fresh and relevant insights which calls on her “head-heart-hands” method to create a space where people are allowed individual self-exploration. Fundamentally she is motivated by helping people to create authentic and intimate relationships while emphasizing self-actualization, shame reduction, acceptance, and justice.

Her writing is extensive, ranging from numerous articles, columns, works of fiction, to instructional books. She is the author of The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage, Wild Side Sex, and Master Han's Daughter. She leads transformative small group intensives, including ForteFemme: Women’s Dominance Weekend Intensive, Rope Dojo ®, and The Wanted Man intensive.

When she's not traveling and teaching, she's creating provocative and haunting art and performances.

Are We Still Cavemen When It Comes To Love? | Todd Shackelford, Ph.D.

When most people talk about evolutionary psychology they will give the example of a caveman in the wilderness that hears a rustle in the bushes. This caveman from 1 million years ago can think it is just the wind or a lion that’s about to eat him. Without knowing this caveman will have three ways to react; fight, flight or freeze. Even though we are now modern super sophisticated homosapiens that never come across a lion in our iphone and internet world we still have the same reaction as our million year old caveman ancestors when something unexpected happens. It may not be a lion but a surprise email from our boss’s boss can strike fear to our core when we don’t know if we are getting a promotion or fired. We will have the same fight, flight or freeze reaction as our caveman ancestor. You may see the email; freeze and think of what this surprise email is all about. Or you could run away from it and refuse to open it. Or you could get all worked up and be ready to argue a point you don’t even know what it is yet. Evolutionary psychology is a hybrid discipline that draws insights from modern evolutionary theory, biology, cognitive psychology, anthropology, economics, computer science, and paleoarchaeology.

Our guest today, Todd Shackelford, Ph.D. is distinguished Professor and Chair of Psychology at Oakland University and Co-Director of the Evolutionary Psychology Lab. The focus of the Evolutionary Psychology Lab is on the psychology of close relationships, particularly romantic relationships. They study phenomena such as jealousy, infidelity, relationship satisfaction, physical abuse, and sexuality. Current research projects include a diary study of conflict within married couples, and a study of couples involved in violent relationships. Another line of work addresses murder and violence, particularly in romantic relationships, using national crime data.

Todd does a great job of helping us all understand ourselves better and how to use this to have a better relationship with others.

What Donating My Kidney Gave Me | Ari Sytner, Ph.D.

At the end of the movie “Schindler’s List”, Oskar Schindler met with the 1,200 Jewish workers he forged identification papers for and bribed Nazi officers into releasing from the concentration camp Auschwitz to work in his Nazi ammunition factory to declare they were all free to go. During this very emotional scene, Schindler is saying good-bye to his good and trusted friend that was the financial manager of the plant. As Schindler stands there with a gold Nazi swastika medallion on the label of his suit, his friend hands him a letter signed by everyone and a ring. Written on the ring was a message from the Talmud that said, “Whoever saves one life saves the world entire.” As Schindler slowly puts on this priceless ring he looks over the sea of faces he saved and begins to feel regret for not doing more. He questions why he kept his car because that could’ve saved 10 people and the gold Nazi medallion could’ve saved one person. Schindler entered the war as a wealthy industrialist; by the end, he was bankrupt. The real Oskar Schindler is the only member of the Nazi party to be buried on Mount Zion in Jerusalem.

Our guest today, Ari Sytner is a man that embodies the Talmud saying on Schindler’s ring. He went above and beyond the normal gift of kindness many of us pat ourselves on the back for doing. Ari gave a perfect stranger the gift of life by donating one of his kidneys. That’s right….he gave a kidney to a single mother of three children that would’ve died without it. I know what you’re thinking; why in the world would he do this? Ari’s answer to this question would be much different before and after the experience. Before the donation he was a very risk adverse person that would’ve had a difficult time quantifying the value of this very risky endeavor for an unknown reward. After the donation he was filled with so much joy, pride, meaning and love that he wishes he had more kidneys to give; much like Schindler wished he would’ve sold everything to help more Jews live. Ari experienced the powerful impact of what saving one life really means and he carries this spirit into the intense couples therapy he does to save relationships now.

Ari is a rabbi, social worker, therapist, inspirational speaker, Huffington Post contributor, blogger, CEO, organizational strategist, consultant and author of the book “The Kidney Donor’s Journey: 100 Questions I Asked Before Donating My Kidney”. Ari is an inspiration and is the change he wants to see in the world. Sit back and enjoy this fantastic interview with Ari Sytner as he takes us on an emotional roller coaster

Dating Advice Women Want Men to Know | Dr. NerdLove

When you hear the term “Pick Up Artist” you may picture a cheesy guy telling embarrassingly bad lines to a girl like….”Did it hurt? When you fell from Heaven?” Or “If I could rearrange the alphabet I would put U and I together.” Or even more ridiculous “Are you from Tennessee? Because you’re the only 10 I see!” I’m pretty sure that these so-called “Pick Up Lines” never actually picked anyone up. Best case they got a laugh but most likely they were dealt an EPIC eye roll from the extremely unimpressed lady that had the misfortune to hear them. I’m not even sure if this caricature of a pick up artist ever really existed, but I do know that the modern Pick Up Artist community does exist and it does have trainable methods that can help men get out of their houses and start approaching real women in the real world with more confidence. Guys like Rolling Stones writer, Neil Strauss, popularized this underground community in his bestselling book “The Game”. “Neil Strauss was a High School Loser, Never Made it with the Ladies, Till the boys told him something he missed.” Wait a second….was that the lyrics from the Aerosmith song “Walk This Way”? Never the less….Neil was not good with the ladies and the Pick Up Artist community taught him how. He actually became one of the best in the world at picking up women. He then started going around the country to spread the gospel of picking up women.

Our guest today, Harris O’Malley aka Dr. NerdLove, participated in one of Neil Strauss’s Pick Up Artist seminars to learn how to be better with women. This completely changed his life. He became more confident which allowed him to be his true self. The Pick Up Artist community was a jumping off point for him but not the end. He became a master at picking up women but having a long lasting meaningful relationship was still very illusive. He walked away from the Pick Up Artist world and developed the skills to have a real relationship. Today he has it all and he shares the skills he fought hard to learn though his books, podcast, articles, website and private coaching. His podcast Paging Dr. NerdLove is a must for any man trying to understand women better….let’s be honest that’s every guy. Just listen to these great titles from the Paging Dr. NerdLove podcasts “What Men Get Wrong About Women”, “What’s the line Between Flirting And Harassment?”, “The 5 Texting Mistakes That Cost You Dates”, “This is What Makes You Creepy”. How much to you want to listen to these shows? Dr. NerdLove has an amazing ability to deliver his message. He’s a cross between Howard Stern’s blunt honestly, Robin William’s ultra fast and sharp comedic mind, and Dr. Ruth’s straight forward sex talk. You’ll be laughing your butt off as you’re learning important dating and relationship skills. Before you turn off our podcast and go check out Paging Dr. NerdLove, listen to this awesome interview with the Doctor himself right now.

Making Mid-Life Sexy | Olga Szakal

Life has a funny way of putting obstacles in our path that seem impossible but end up being the best thing that has ever happened to us. Marcus Aurelius the great Roman Philosopher Emperor wrote, “The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.” A famous parable called “The King and the Boulder” also illustrates this point

In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock.

Some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the stone out of the way. Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. Upon approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road.

After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. After the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the king indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway. The peasant learned what many of us never understand.

Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our condition.

Our guest today Olga Szakal is a living example of this willingness to make obstacles in her way.…well…..her BITCH! Calling her a fighter is an understatement. She grew up in the 1980s Soviet Union specifically Siberia where it’s so cold and desolate in places that some of Stalin’s prison camps didn’t even have walls because no one could survive outside the camp. Siberia has a highway called “Road of Bones” because so many forced laborers from these prison camps died building it that they used their bones in the foundation of the road. How crazy is that? In the Soviet Union, anything money related like profits were prohibited and even ILLEGAL. This did not stop Olga when she was teenager. She sold blue jeans and female products on the Black Market to make money to survive. This is a much different experience than what I had in the 1980’s. Olga had to go to the black market to buy Levis and tampons. I went to the Mall and Target.

She got out of the Soviet Union with a scholarship to an American college. She built an all American life, married with four kids and like many American marriages she went through a painful divorce. Did this stop her? Hell NO! She built a real estate empire that has made her a millionaire. Now she wants to help women Make Mid-Life SEXY. She is the author of “The Mid-Life Crisis Awakening, How To Rise Up and Become The Woman You Were Always Meant To Be”. She is also the co-host of a weekly Mommy Talk Live Show on the brand new Facebook TV Channel. She is an amazing woman with so much wisdom to share!

Why are so many smart successful women still single? They have it all….great job, beautiful house, amazing friends but their romantic life is either non-existent or it’s so bad that calling it a train wreck would be an upgrade. So what’s the deal?

Did Jesus Have Sex and Get Married? | Dr. Jen

Did Jesus have SEX!?!...WHAT! Did he get married?....COME ON NOW! People are starting to believe that this is true based on the Gnostic Gospels. What’s the Gnostic Gospels you ask? The Gnostic Gospels are Gospels that were condemned from being in the New Testament. These gospels were hidden from the world for almost 2000 years. They were found buried in an area 200 miles south of Cairo Egypt in 1945 by two farmers looking for fertilizer. How crazy is that? They were digging for fertilizer and found some bones and a large sealed jar. Most of us would be so curious to open an old sealed jar found in the ground that we would’ve opened it immediately. These two guys didn’t open it right away? Why you ask? You’re not going to believe this….they actually thought an evil GENIE would come out. I can’t make this stuff up. They later came to their senses and imagined it full of Gold. Of course….Gold motivated them to break the jar. They didn’t find gold but they did find thirteen leather-bound papyrus (books) comprised of 52 Gnostic treatises, three works belonging to Corpus Hermeticum and a partial translation of Plato’s Republic….Quite a find for a couple of farmers. Since the discovery in 1945, scholars have been studying these new gospels which include Jesus. However, the Jesus in these gospels is unrecognizable from the Jesus found in the New Testament. This was a Jesus that didn’t die, took revenge on his enemies and some say had sex and even got married. This is a much different person than the “Turn the other check” man most of us learned about in Sunday school.

Our guest today, Dr. Jen has a doctorate in Counseling Psychology, is a psychotherapist and sex therapist and she has been studying the hidden sex positive teachings from the Gnostic Gospels which has lead her to author a forthcoming book titled “What was Jesus’ Hidden Message about Sacred Sexuality?”. Dr. Jen grew up in a conservative Irish Catholic home where she only heard about the evils of sex. She always intuitively felt that the Church wasn’t sharing the whole message about sex as taught by Jesus, so she went on a personal quest to find out if Jesus had a sex positive teaching. She believes that this forgotten wisdom can enhance sexual satisfaction, bring couples closer together and help believers reconcile faith with sex in a profoundly uplifting way.

This podcast will be controversial and even difficult for many to listen to. If you are easily offended by the thought of a Jesus that contradicts your personal view, please DO NOT Listen to this podcast. I believe this is a fair warning….don’t you?

Is Sex Addiction Real or a Myth? | Dr. David Ley

Sex Addiction has become a modern buzz word that has given powerful men a “Get out of Jail Free” card when they are caught cheating on their wives.  We have all seen the famous men that get caught cheating then go to an expensive rehab center to cure them from this “demonic force” that has taken over their lives.  It’s happened so many times in the past three decades that it’s become a punch line on shows like South Park.  But is Sex Addiction real or a myth and can it be treated?  On this podcast we interview an expert on Sexual Addiction, Dr. David Ley.  He has become world famous for his critical stance regarding sex addiction but he has the credentials to back it up.   

Dr. David Ley is a Board-certified sex therapist, supervisor of sex therapy and Director of New Mexico Solutions, a large outpatient mental health and substance abuse program in Albuquerque, New Mexico.He has published three critically-acclaimed books, Insatiable Wives, The Myth of Sexual Addiction and Ethical Porn for Dicks: A Man’s Guide to Responsible Viewing Pleasure.

Sex Workers In the Modern World | Alex Bishop & Penny Trait

What does Sex Worker mean to you? Does it make you think of some underworld where drug addicted women trade their bodies for another hit of heroin or meth with no regard to their future or anyone else? Or do you think of a middle class Soccer Mom taking care of her kids, managing her own company and creating a charity? It may be time to move past the Hollywood version of a Sex Worker. Today’s modern sex workers are online, live in suburbia, they are safe, create charities to help other sex workers and raise their children with more quality time than anyone with a 9 to 5 job.

In this podcast we interview two amazing women, Penny Trait and Alex Bishop, both proud online sex workers and even prouder single mothers who created a charity porn project called I Give A Fuck Clips with their fellow sex worker colleague Jessie Sage. Alex and Penny may change your opinion of what a real sex worker is in the 21st Century.

Men Searching For Meaning | The Mankind Project

Where do men go when they are searching for meaning? The need for meaning and purpose is an intrinsic part of a life that is completely satisfying and has no regret. The difficulty for many men is they feel obligated to suppress inner issues like childhood trauma, wants, dreams, desires and emotions to appear strong to the outside world. Sometimes you can have everything in your life in the right order, your job, family, friends..... it looks good on paper, but you still feel empty inside. Or maybe your life has gone off track and you are trying to figure out how to get back to where you need to be. The ManKind Project is a group where men encourage other men to stop putting on a front and put in the hard work to get to the core issues that are making them feel empty inside.

The Mankind Project serves close to 10,000 men each week in 11 regions worldwide through challenging programs designed to empower men to missions of service to support men to make a difference in the lives of others. They have men’s groups that provide mentorship to men at all levels of success to destroy the protected walls men build to hide themselves from the emotions inside. These groups will hold men accountable for the stories they tell themselves while making them challenge the fear. The Mankind Project gives men the power to blow up the walls that are blocking them from the beauty that is on the other side of them. The Mankind Project has transformed the lives of millions of men over the years by helping them find their WHY. We met with three men David, Frank, and Terry, that have been positively affected by The Mankind Project and they share their stories with us.
