    Today on the podcast I’m in conversation with Wendy Strgar. An award-winning entrepreneur and the founder and CEO of Good Clean Love, a pioneer in the organic personal care product industry. Wendy started Good Clean Love in 2003 after hearing from many women about, and experiencing for herself, the painful side effects of using petrochemical-based hygiene products.

On the show today we chat about Wendy’s personal story and how she not only built her company from the ground up, but used inspiration from her own personal and intimate life to help facilitate others to achieve the same evolution of orgasmic living.

    Love is Kind: From Surviving to Thriving with Rosie Aiello

    INTERVIEW: (Trigger Warning — Domestic Abuse) Today I’m in conversation with Rosie Aiello, a life coach, author, podcaster and founder of the Love is Kind Network. Rosie’s story is one of true inspiration, and is outlined in her memoir, 11 Hours to Freedom, where she shares her story of being trapped in an emotionally, mentally and financially abusive relationship for nearly 25 years. It was when Rosie engineered an international escape from the Middle East to save her young adult daughter and herself from domestic violence that she rediscovered her voice, and is now on a mission to do the same for millions of others. On today’s episode Rosie shares her own healing journey, and gives insight into her process working with individuals to release the invisible shackles of abuse.

    What's Going On Down There?! With Dr. Marcy Crouch

    What's Going On Down There?! With Dr. Marcy Crouch

    INTERVIEW: Today I’m in conversation with my guest, Dr. Marcy Crouch, about the unsung hero in sexual health: the pelvic floor. Now I’m sure a lot of you might have an idea of what the pelvic floor does for our health and wellbeing, but I’m also going to guess that you might not know much at all! That’s why I’m excited to introduce Dr. Marcy Crouch, AKA The Down There Doc, and Board Certified Clinical Specialist in Women’s Health Physical Therapy. Today Marcy shares with Bedside just what is going on down there between the purpose of our pelvic floor functionality (hint: it’s A LOT), and the importance and service of the pelvic floor to our sexual wellbeing. Dr. Marcy Crouch knows a thing or two about how our pelvic floors are linked to all things sex. So much so she decided to create programs designed for mothers and birthing persons everywhere as the NEW standard for birth prep and recovery. She is changing the way women are preparing for their births and elevating postpartum care for all.

    The Porn Conversation with Avril Louise Clarke

    The Porn Conversation with Avril Louise Clarke

    INTERVIEW: Today I’m in conversation with Avril Louise Clarke, a clinical sexologist and project manager for Erika Lust's non-profit project The Porn Conversation. On the podcast today we are talking all about pornography — the deep prevalence of it, the secrecy, the harm, the benefits, the ethics, and important cultural indications. Born and raised in Miami, Avril has always had a passion for women's issues, politics, and the access and availability of comprehensive sex education. As we cover the pornographic landscape Avril shares just the sheer scale of the adult entertainment industry and how we can become porn literate: engaging with porn in a healthy and pleasurable way and how we can use it as a tool to open up the conversation in hopes of bettering our sexual expression, communication, and exploration.

    Good Sex, Good Relationships ARE A CHOICE

    Good Sex, Good Relationships ARE A CHOICE

    What is between you and the sex you crave? What is between you and the relationships you desire? Good sex is something we all deserve, so what’s getting in the way? On today's Quickie I explore the barriers keeping us from our connection to our bodies, erotic energy, and sense of pleasure. More specifically HOW it can help us deeply heal, recover, and create space and opportunity to reconnect to ourselves, our relationships, and damn good sex. It’s safe to say this is a loaded topic, but an important one to uncover. Notions of stress, lack of communication, past trauma, and beliefs around sexuality all have a role in the bedroom. What are the barriers you face the most?  Uncover this with me, and let me share what I consider are the top tips on creating a sex & love life of your dreams!

You don’t know what you don’t know...

My wife and I listened to the pod cast interview with Mieka Hollendar while touring New England this week. Lots of windshield time. There are so many things in our modern society that we either take for granted or accept at face value... or both. Many are beneficial and too many are not. Our society is awash in harmful chemicals that have been sold to us as “safe” yet we see rising rates of cancer, leukemia, and other non-source specific diseases that defy explanation.
As a family, we have as chemical a free home as we can. When Mieka brought up a point that many cotton based tampons have trace amounts of glycosides (Roundup) in them, and when used, pass those chemicals directly into the blood stream, it prompted a very serious discussion about $.25 vs $.45 a tampon. Taking a cancer risk for $.20 is not a good idea...unless you don’t know it’s a risk. So, thank you for having serious, educational discussions in this space that needs to be had. Well worth a listen.
