Compulsive Sexual Behaviors - Sex / Porn Addiction - Hypersexuality - with Eric

July 8th, 2018

00:0000:00

Our next guest identifies as "Powerful Eric." His name is Eric and after twenty years of going through 12 step programs he no longer identifies as a sex / porn addict.  He feels the label itself was a problem.

While there is no clinical diagnosis for sex addiction, some people stil feel out of control when it comes to their sexual compulsions and seek help. Many people go into twelve step programs, which are known to have high rates of failure. Eric talks to us about his own journey through dozens of twelve step programs, how they didn't help at all, and how he has found mindfullness techniques that help him with his issues.

June 22nd, 2018

00:0000:00

This week, our guest is David Wraith, the co-founder of Sex Positive St. Louis. We have had him on before. In this episode, he talks with us a little bit about the death of his wife last year and the support he found in the polyamorous community. We also talk about #metoo, BDSM, mommy issues, pissing (water sports), male chastity, sex work, and the beautiful older women he has sexual relationships with. In one story, he tells us about his sexual relationship with Betty Dodson, an 89 year old woman. She is well known among sex educators for manually teaching women to orgasm that had never experienced it. We hope you enjoy this week's episode.

Infidelity Can Save Your Sex Life? Whaaaat? - Helping Couples Overcome Infidelity with Author Angela Skurtu

June 1st, 2018

00:0000:00

 

Join me today for an interview with author Angela Skurtu. Angela is a licensed marriage therapist and an AASECT certified sex therapist. She is also the co-host of the About Sex Podcast! I knew she sounded familiar. Today, we discuss her book, Helping Couples Overcome Infidelity: A Therapist's Manual. In it, she shares all the trade secrets of how she guides people through the theraputic process. We also discuss how an infidelity can sometimes save a failing marriage. Yes, really. A common side-effect of a betrayal is a revitalization of your sex life by forcing the conflict out in the open, making a couple deal with their problems. This can create a territorial sexual response. Angela does not suggest infidelity as a fix to a failing marriage or sex life, but gives some great alternatives in our interview.

I also ask her if she ever cheated on her husband. Yes, I actually asked that. I am so incorrigible... Tune in to find out her answer and get all the salacious details!

-Josh

The Fog of Faith - Surviving My Impotent God with Author Leona Stucky

May 15th, 2018

00:0000:00

Join us this episode with our guest, author Leona Stucky.

About Leona Stucky www.leonastucky.com
Dr. Stucky first received a degree in psychology and philosophy from Boston College, graduating summa cum laude, before plunging into seminary, first at Andover Newton Theological School and then at Eden Theological Seminary. She earned a doctorate from Southern Methodist University with honors, and a Diplomate certificate from the American Association of Pastoral Counselors—their highest credential—for teaching, supervising, and offering therapy services. She currently has standing as a Unitarian Universalist community minister.

About her Memoir: The Fog ofFaith

The Fog of Faith is a suspenseful and morally unflinching drama of shame and survival, as well as usable and unusual wisdom. Leona is cast into a bewildering life of disgrace and poverty—with a baby, a violent husband, and battered faith. Through a series of page-turning events, she hacks through the bones of her naïveté to confront harsh realities and to probe the veracity of the religious claims she'd grown up with in her Mennonite community in rural Kansas. Each step of the gripping story grounds itself in nuanced networks of passion, relational complexities, cultural and religious dilemmas, circumscribed choices bound by woman’s poverty, persistent violence, and an untamable resilient desire to redeem herself.

Separation of Church and State - Sex Education in Public Schools - Consent - with Sally Buxbaum Hunt

April 26th, 2018

00:0000:00

Disclaimer: Yes, we're going to talk about religion today with Sally Hunt, who was recently featured on Fox News. We respect everyone's right to their own beliefs and values, but Angela and I feel it important that a government for the people, by the people, represent all of the people, no matter their creed, gender, or belief system. We do talk about sex for a lot of the episode, but if you wish to skip most of the religious topics, skip ahead to around the 30 minute mark.

 

Our guest today is Sally Buxbaum Hunt, also known as the Passionate Atheist. She was recently featured on Fox News to discuss the separation of church and state. We ask her about that experience, from what happened at the Wentzville City hall to her interview with Laura Ingraham on Fox. We also discuss consent and sex education in public schools. This is actually Sally's second appearance on our show. In her first appearance, we focused mostly on sex education in public schools. You can find that interview here. We hope you enjoy listening to the episode as much as we enjoyed making it.

 

 

 

  

About our guest:

Sally Buxbaum Hunt - The Passionate Atheist

Sally Hunt, also known as ‘The Passionate Atheist,’ is an activist who advocates for comprehensive sex education, sex-positivity, and the separation of church and state. Sally founded the group, Expose Thrive, which successfully got Thrive’s “Best Choice” abstinence-only, shame-based & fear-based program removed from 16 local public school districts. Sally is also known for recently speaking in opposition to a large ‘In God We Trust’ display at city hall in Wentzville, Missouri, and then being thrown out of the meeting by the mayor due to her comments. Sally has gotten a great deal of media attention for her opposition to the 'In God We Trust' display, including an appearance on the Fox News show, The Ingraham Angle. The ACLU has filed a lawsuit against the city of Wentzville on Sally’s behalf. Sally has a master’s in counseling, 6 years’ experience as a school counselor, and will be entering the counseling PhD program in the fall.
