    Our Biggest Sexual Health Lessons

    Our Biggest Sexual Health Lessons

    We've been doing this show for around 6 months... We came into this not knowing what to expect. To say our lives have been changed is an understatement. Today we're going to do a recap of some of our favorite takeaways since we started the show. We might take a bit of a break after this episode as we RETHINK (see what I did there?) what we want the future of the show to look like. I hope you're able to tune in and say hi on today's episode!

    What is a sexual health plan?

    What is a sexual health plan?

    Now that we know the 6 Principles of Sexual Health, it's time to create our own Sexual Health Plan. Just like physical fitness, if we want to get healthy, it helps to develop a plan. The plan helps us move towards our goals, avoid damaging behaviors, and develop healthy habits. The plan typically involves some sort of support system. And our ability to succeed in following the plan means we need to have clarity around our values so that our plan is in alignment with them. Today we hope you leave with some clarity around what it looks like to develop your own Sexual Health Plan.

    Using the 6 Principles of Sexual Health as a Framework For Your Sexual Ethics

    Using the 6 Principles of Sexual Health as a Framework For Your Sexual Ethics

    A few weeks ago, Utah's governor signed a bill to make porn filters mandatory on any mobile device or tablet sold in the state. This prompted an interesting conversation within our group about sexual ethics. The conversation was so interesting that we decided to stop having it without sharing it with you... So we're having it here. Today we're talking about using the 6 Principles for Sexual Health as a framework for your sexual ethics.

    Episode 15: Rules of Engagement

    Episode 15: Rules of Engagement

    Do you want to eradicate shame, and rebuild trust? Do you want honesty and transparency to thrive in your relationship? Well, telling the truth (or not keeping secrets) is only ONE part of honesty. The other part is making sure you have created an environment where your partner feels safe to be honest. In order for true honesty to exist, you HAVE to have rules of engagement for your relationship. In times of conflict or high emotional reactivity, there need to be agreements in place, and a code of conduct that gets followed. Otherwise, you or your partner might say things you regret, or behave in a way that undermines the safety needed for honesty to take place. Today we're going to talk about what your rules of engagement could look like, and how to have that conversation. I hope you join us!

    Taking Responsibility for Your Sexual Shame

    Taking Responsibility for Your Sexual Shame

    Anyone who is struggling with porn problems is struggling with shame. You don't get one without the other. In our last episode, we talked about shame, where it comes from, and how it impacts us and our relationships. How it makes us want to hide... How it makes us feel unloveable... How it sends us into cycles of negative behavior and self-loathing... But we didn't talk about what to do when you're experiencing shame. Today, we share the light at the end of the tunnel. We will talk about the courageous acts required to break free of your shame. We will show you how to start taking responsibility for your negative cycles. Don't miss this one!

    How Do I Find My Pleasure & Keep My Faith?

    How Do I Find My Pleasure & Keep My Faith?

    How Do I Find My Pleasure & Keep My Faith?
    This is a question that challenges many people...
    I cherish my faith. It's important to me. I don't want to give it up...
    But I also don't want to hold to my faith if it's doing me damage, or harming my relationship with myself or others...
    So, how do we develop and explore sexual pleasure without reliquishing our relationship with the divine?
    This is the conversation we'll be wrestling with today.

Profound and Insightful

I learned so much from this podcast. Anyone who grew up in a culture that associated sexuality with shame and suppression would benefit from listening to this. You’re not broken, you’re just a whole person. Very healing. This is a profound and insightful podcast.

Wonderfully Vulnerable

Rethinking Porn Addiction is such a wonderful resource to anyone struggling with sexual health around pornography, values, religion, and relationships. As a therapist working in the area of human sexuality, I have seen this podcast help my clients as they work through their issues and increase communication with their partners. Rethinking Porn Addiction provides a framework for individuals and couples to use as they increase their own comfort with discussing difficult topics.

Jake, Hans, Nate, and Kristin have been so vulnerable in sharing their personal experiences. Doug Braun Harvey is a gem of a human and a therapist with his gentle and compassionate approach, and I am so grateful that he and Kristin were willing to share their time and knowledge in this format to reduce shame and spread the idea of sexual health as encompassing the wanted-the pleasure, not just the negative as so often happens in conversations around sex and porn.
