Sex w Dr Jess podcast

Dr.Jess and co-host Brandon, offer a fantastic podcast and perspective in Canadian perspective and insight into sexuality. Jess regularly weekly takes time from her extensive schedule to talk to guests with discussions, informative insights and considerations about many interesting and different aspects of sexuality. Worthwhile to listen to if you’re interested and a great Canadian podcast.

Helped my relationship after just one episode!

I actually learned about this podcast from a parent in one of the private parenting groups on Facebook that I follow - Visible Child (it’s about respectful parenting and honest talk with kids about a myriad of topics comes up).

After the first episode I listened to, the intimate aspect of my marriage improved instantly!

So, thank you Dr. Jess. I’ve always believed that knowledge is power but I just didn’t know of a good/reliable/trustworthy source of knowledge until I found you. You rock!
