Curious & Curiouser Podcast, Episode 26: Sex, Religion, Desire, & Why We Need to Talk About Pleasure
This week… Sex! And desire! In this conversation, we are answering another listener question and exploring the topic of sex as it relates to religion and spirituality. Specifically, our listener posed this question: How do you go from being told to have no sexual desire before your wedding night to flipping that switch after you’re married and being all in?
Cayly and I are asking each other questions and diving deep into some rather personal topics as a way of letting you all get to know us a bit better. I dish on my divorce, Cayly talks about leaving the Mormon church, and we both talk about regret — specifically, do we believe in regret and do we have any regrets ourselves?
Curious & Curiouser Podcast, Episode 22: Gourmet Twinkies, Personal Growth, & the Self-Help Rabbit Hole
We answer our first listener question! Why do we want to change and evolve, and why can’t we just be content with our lives as they are right now? Cayly and I talk about how challenging yourself is essential to building confidence, why change is inevitable, and why growth is necessary for staying healthy and engaged in an ever-evolving world.
Deep breaths before this one, gang. Because on this episode of Curious & Curiouser, Cayly and I are breaking down the myth that “having it all” is desirable, possible, or even a real thing — at least as our culture likes to define it.
Cayly and I chat about the intersection of her work and my own, talk all about the benefits of combining mental health therapy with acupuncture and other forms of bodywork, and explain how doing so can facilitate transformation and often accelerate healing.
True self care is often doing the things that are hard and not particularly comfortable — like paying your bills and having strong boundaries.
In this week’s episode of the podcast, Cayly and I talk about manifesting — a word we see being tossed around a lot in the self-help and personal development arena — often to the detriment of those who fall prey to the hype. We discuss the ways that our attempts to manifest can go wrong and leave us feeling less content in the end. We also call bullshit on The Secret (which is something Cayly did previously in this article she wrote a few months back), talk about how to manifest effectively, and discuss what that looks like in our own lives.
Another episode of the podcast is here! This week, Cayly and I are continuing our conversation from last week, debunking some myths floating around about sex, sexual pleasure, and our bodies.
Please note that we talk very openly and honestly about sex, sex education, and sexual desire. We also use proper anatomical terminology for all male and female body parts, and do not shy away from things like masturbation and sexual pleasure.
Curious and Curioser podcast is a place where we have unfiltered conversations about everything from motherhood to body image to relationships and sex to business and finances and how we define success. We get super honest in these dialogues, hoping to shine some light on some topics that are often not so openly or candidly discussed.
