This is a surprising topic on many levels. On the surface it seems a simple topic, underneath it deals with medical incompetence, regaining sexual pleasure, bodily autonomy, mothers making choices about their boys, and so much more. I regret that we even have to have this episode, it shouldn’t even be a discussion. But it is in our culture.
Two courageous women talk about their abortions. The religious right has learned how to use shame and guilt against women, lets talk out loud about this. Women have a right to bodily autonomy.
Darrel discusses masturbation in marriage, communication per sexual adventurousness vs security, circumcision and other listener suggested topics.
Male circumcision is seldom discussed and the damage to men has not been acknowledged. Its time for seculars to challenge the myths and let men openly discuss their feelings, if they were affected by this barbaric and unnecessary practice.
We talk with a deaf and hearing couple about sexual communication with sign language. Also, we talk with Peggy Clancy about her work with the Recovering from Religion Hotline, small groups as a volunteer.
Kiitty (yes that’s spelled right) and Tamer talk with me about their webcam partnership, not talking about religion with a dildo in her, feminism, having 10,000 people watch her with another girl, dick pics, and so much more.
The amazing Dr. Susan Block talks with us about her sex therapy practice, her famous and long running show and Bonobos and what they can teach us.
Marta Pena joins me to talk about growing up as a teen in Germany. Sex education is REALLY different there. Also, she compares US and German attitudes towards boobs, among other things.
Professor and all round interesting guy, Bill Zingrone talks about the good science that is now taught in college Psychology on sexuality – both intro and advanced courses. We also discuss religious teachings as child abuse, and much more.
This week I go on a rant about the consequences of relationships with religious people. We also hear my talk on “What the Duggers can Teach Us About Human Sexuality.” from Sept. at Kansas City Oasis.
