Love this podcast
I love how this podcast is a wonderful mix of useful psychotherapeutic knowledge and practical sexuality tips.
Dr. Jess and Brandon, I discovered your podcast recently (yesterday). I am a knowledge seeker who unfortunately haven’t had the chance to access higher education yet, so I use podcasts and books, etc. whenever I can. Just for curiosity, I downloaded few episodes (from your podcast and others) to listen while I deliver parcels. Growing up in a strict religious environment, I was expected to be a certain way and so on (I’m sure you understand what I am talking about). I am in my early 30’s, husband and continue to broaden my horizon (not only with Sex education) and it feels great! I love it!
Your podcast (and others) allow me to focus, be calm and more productive while I am flooding my brain with knowledge.
Brandon, you often don’t talk much but when you do, your few words are well chosen.
Keep this up folks, you are changing people’ life big time. Thanks again.
Thank you so much for this podcast Dr. Jess! I literally could listen to your pod cast for hours. Thank you for the laughs and thought provoking deep questions you provide in this perfect podcast. I learn so much each podcast for my personal and my professional growth through your elegant and informative explanations. Looking forward to your next podcast!
