Host Birna Gustafsson dives into topics at the intersection of health, culture, and sexuality. No topic is off-limits as she tackles issues that affect our intimate lives in all aspects, ranging from health-related to raunchy. Season one will include personal anecdotes, advice, Q&A, interviews, and more. Beyond the Bedroom is a CSNDRA production.
Bonus content! I play 10 minutes of a bonus episode usually only available on my Patreon (now $4/month). I talk about my journey through Masturbation May so far, discuss the results from the Instagram polls, and give some advice on how to talk about self-touch.

What’s Missing From Your Sex Ed?
What did this week’s poll questions have in common? They’re common topics often left out of traditional sex ed models but are so vital for young adults (and everyone) to learn. Voting in the poll isn’t a prerequisite for listening, I’ll go over the results and share how I voted along with my input. Shop Maude with my code BIRNA10 for a discount and to support the podcast.

Blowjobs and Pharmacology
Do you have go-to moves for oral? Have you been on medications that affected your arousal? Have you thought about someone else during sex? I review the results of these questions I posed to my audience and more, while I reveal how I voted with some sex-educator advice. Use my code BIRNA10 at Maude to support.

Sex Worker's Rights Are Human Rights
Bonus episode this week! I have written and organized so much for sex workers' rights, it's about time I record an episode about it- and I couldn't think of a better time than now, as I respond to Iceland's national discourse and debate about onlyfans. Main takeaway: if you are against sex work, provide compassion and resources and listen to sex workers' demands.

The Polls Are In
It's time for hot topics again! This week, I asked my audience to vote on a series of questions tackling intimacy. Do you find giving and receiving equally as pleasurable? Do you zone out during intimacy? Doing it on the counter: hot or not? I add my own two cents along with some personal experiences as I discuss the results.

Instagram Deleted @bbirna
Instagram killed the podcast star. RIP bbirna, but you can keep up with my antics @ beyondbedroom podcast on Instagram. I’m hoping to get my account back, but in this unfiltered and unedited episode, I chat about censorship, FOSTA/SESTA, and why the F my IG was taken down.
