A Transgendered Guest joins us to teach us about gender dysphoria

October 21st, 2017

00:0000:00

Imagine if you will, a world in which you wake up and find yourself in the body of the opposite sex. You were born a man, and have always felt a man, but you now find yourself equipped with a different set of parts. Instead of hard lines and muscles, you have soft curves and breasts. Instead of male genetalia, you now have female genetalia. This would throw most people off of their game. You would feel like you are living in someone else's skin. You would maybe even feel you own body to be something alien to you.

 

Transgendered people deal with this every day, and the distress it causes is called gender dysphoria. Our anonymous guest today, Sara, was born male, but identifies as a woman. Join us to hear her story and learn with us.

Real Life Story: Life with Bipolar Disorder, Hyper-sexuality, and Infidelity

October 16th, 2017

00:0000:00

New, from the makers of Puberty: Adulthood.

"Live life as if you constantly have other stuff to get done."

Warning: Side effects may include depression, bipolar disorder, frequent urination, a calm feeling that is immediately interrupted by a crying baby, grief, love, loss, a sense of disillusionment with the world of competitive poker, a constant need to argue about politics, dancing, laughter, dissociative choreography, spending long nights talking while cuddled in bed, that one skin disease that turns you orange, phantom income syndrome, a glimmer of hope on the horizon, with a sense that life can and will get better, and dry, flaky scalp.

Our guest on this episode, Lisa, wished to remain anonymous, and we really loved having her share her story. She lives with bipolar disorder and has struggled to be faithful to her partner and was willing to share a very intimate part of her life with us. These are some heavy topics, but we felt really priveliged to be able to share her story. We hope you enjoy it. 

 

xoxo,

Josh and Angela Skurtu :-)

Burlesque Dancing - Being Vulnerable on Stage in front of Strangers

October 9th, 2017

00:0000:00

Everyone wants to feel sexy. Everyone wants to be admired and fawned over. Everyone wants to be the object of their lover's obsession, and sometimes we all just want to curl up into a ball and cry while we deal with our existential crisis of the week. But while some of us may be busy with the whole crying ball thing, others have found new confidence and power in something called burlesque. Women and men who learn how to dance on stage while showing a little more ankle than usual. Lots of glitter is involved.

 

Hot Pockets joined us to discuss her journey of learning amateur burlesque. Hot Pockets is not her given name, as she prefers to remain anonymous. We hope you can join us.

Pain During Sex and how Pelvic Floor Physical Therapists can Help - Special Guest Dr. Brooke Kalisiak

October 1st, 2017

00:0000:00

Sex feels great. Your body hums with energy, your mind reels with pleasure, and you feel bliss in its purest form. But what if it hurts? You probably won't be as excited to get back in the ring if you know it will only lead to pain. Many women suffer from pain during intercourse, known as Dyspareunia, and this can make women avoid, reduce the frequency, or outright stop having sex. Luckily, there are people that can help. Some physical therapists help you get your shoulder back in working order. Our guest in this episode works with women to revitalize their sex life by reducing pain with exercises and other therapies.
