Insightful Conversations on Male Sexuality

:As a guest on this podcast discussing male sexuality, I was truly impressed by the depth of the conversations and the professionalism of the host. The topics covered were not only informative but also handled with sensitivity and respect. It's refreshing to find a podcast that
delves into such important but often overlooked aspects of sexual health. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone interested in understanding male sexuality better.

Kemper PT ,

Perfect timing!

Thank you for tackling those issues others haven’t! I just listened to the Neuro/SCI episode- I have my first SCI client in a long time this week. So helpful!

Get a new announcer

The podcast itself is informative and interesting. The announcer voice at the beginning and end, along with the loud music, were so off-putting I almost turned it off without listening further.
