Thank you so much!!

Such helpful, practical advice given in a nonjudgmental way. Dr. Saltz is a brilliant author and psychiatrist and her work is much needed during these challenging, uncertain times. She breaks down difficult and stressful topics in a way that makes me feel less alone and overwhelmed.

Really bad episode on Body “Positivity”

“Besides the fact that it is difficult to feel free and passionate when you are thinking about how unattractive a part of you looks, it is also not much of a turn on for your partner. Generally, men do not find it sexy to hear you say, oh gosh, my butt is so flabby, or are my breast too droopy? Nor is it a turn on if you don't believe any compliments they give you.”

I’ve listened to a couple of episodes, but have decided not to listen to any more based on the above direct quote. I’m a hetero woman and this garbage was just too much. Like another reviewer said, it’s heteronormative. But it also seems to be telling you to feel ashamed of any feelings of shame you might already be having in order to please your man. This is coming from a therapist?

In addition, the episodes are pretty slim, yet heavy on obnoxious advertising.

Lack of Internalized misogyny coversation

I loved this podcast up until the 9/8/23 episode. The feedback to the mom with body issues left out a huge conversation about the internalized misogyny of the mommy & beauty industrial complexes. The advice to “put on some lingerie and just do it anyway until you want it more” was not it. Seriously considering unfollowing this pod bc of this issue.
