Cath is with me today to answer all of these questions and to give you tools to start the conversation no matter the age of your child.  Your children will be exposed to pornography, it's not a question of "if," but "when."

    Changing your Performance and your Penis with Dr Judson Brandeis

    Changing your Performance and your Penis with Dr Judson Brandeis

    What lengths do you go to meet expectations? For most men, sexual performance is one where, no pun intended, men go to great lengths for an extra inch or two. Men also compare themselves with others in regards to sexual stamina, girth and so on. Some even get alterations that are dangerous and ineffective in the long run. Today we are talking today about PE, Penis diseases, delayed ejaculation the P Shot and penis elongation.  These topics are topics people don’t typically like talking about. We are addressing them with a board-certified urologist because it really is at the heart of what many men are concerned about. We are taking these difficult topics head on because some men take desperate actions to change their sexual experience which long term causes harm.   Dr Brandeis is the Director of Clinical Excellence for GAINSWave. He has served as the Chief of Urology at John Muir Hospital for the past 8 years. As Chief of Urology he helped to start the Surgical Robotics Program at the Concord Campus in 2002. He is the lead trainer for Male Sexual Wellness for REVIVE. IF you find this episode supportive, I encourage to think of someone who could use this episode and share it with them. We’re all growing together in these discussions and you sharing this may be the support they need to start these important conversations with their kids.   Be sure to check out my course on how to talk to your kids about pornography and what to do when you find out your child has been exposed to pornographic images. I just released 2  e-courses on "" AND "" Go check out these courses on I have a link on the front page you can follow to get these courses. I’d love to hear how it helps you.   If you have questions you would like to ask Braxton feel free to contact him via email, voice mail, or through social media. text/call 385-449-1818 or email me at   Thank you again for listening.

50 Stars

I really need to spend more time podcasting! This way I could catch up on every single bee in your hive. In addition to being one of my favorite smart people, your show hosts my very favorite therapists, thinkers, writers, and speakers. Lennie Knowlton is all of those things, so it was a real treat to listen to the two of you talk for over an hour on trauma, shame, self compassion- connection-all the hard and most important things. Not only was this yummy but it was edifying. I learn so much every time I listen to one of your shows. Thank you!
