    When Men Say No To Sex

    When Men Say No To Sex

    It's becoming more common for men to say no to sex. The stigma that men are always DTF (down to f*ck) and want sex 24/7 can compound already difficult issues. Women are feeling unwanted, undesired, and self conscious. Men feel inadequate, ashamed, and embarassed.

    We asked our audience what was the main reason for them/their husband saying no and were very surprised by the lack of diversity in answers. All the responses fell into about 5 categories and we discuss them here!

    Men's reasons for saying no to sex are almost NEVER have to do with their partners. They aren't saying no because they don't find their wife/partner sexy or desireable. They are actually stressed, depressed, and anxious. Dealing with performance anxiety or ED and even taking a medication that is affecting drive.

    Enjoy our take on this topic and listen for the actual fight we're having accidentally pop up mid convo.

    Being the Son of a Teen Mom - Special Guest: Noah Buckley

    Being the Son of a Teen Mom - Special Guest: Noah Buckley

    Nothing says "full circle" like the baby you had in high school growing up to make fun of you for having a baby in high school.

    Sara got pregnant at 17 in her junior year of high school. After turning 18, Sara and Sterling (who was 21) got married and two weeks later Noah was born. Sara finished high school while being a stay at home mom and new wife!

    We quickly learned that Noah was my clone in almost every way. That has only proven more and more true as he gets older and comes into his own. I wasn't officially diagnosed with ADD until age 27 and as a kid always felt my parents didn't quite "get" me. I actually felt that way my entire life until Noah. We just get each other. We joke, think, love, and shit talk Sterling the same.

    In this episode, I interview my smart ass little twin with questions submitted by you guys plus a few of my own. Things quickly spiral into our accent impressions and inside jokes, so don't be alarmed if you don't follow along, hahahaha.

    Modesty + Body Shaming

    Modesty + Body Shaming

    Why is it that men are never described as being immodest? Or are they and we've never heard of it? In this episode, we talk about what it means to be modest (to us) and the nonesense that is body shaming.

    This has been a constant issue in Sara's since puberty and she only recently stopped giving a f**k about it. Sterling loves to call men out on their b******t about "if you don't want me to look, cover up".

    Making a triumphant return is the beloved segment: Urban Dictionary. We recently learned that "hot wife" and "hotwife" are NOT THE SAME THING AT ALL OMG.

Meek ,

LOVE!

I just found you guys and love listening to you both! Especially the episode with ADHD and Depression.

My husband and I just listened to it and he has ADHD and I have depression and could totally relate to you both on this and so many others!

Thank you!

Big fan of NTWM

I’ve been a fan since shortly before this podcast had begun! Don’t ask why it took so long to listen though. I suppose you can say I finally have down time! I started with the second to last. Cannot wait to catch up with the others! Having two perspectives on marriage/relationships is godsend. Thank you, Sterling and Sara! Absolutely love you both.

You’re wrong

A wooden spoon is not better than your hand. Spanking is lazy parenting.
