    RE/INVENTED EMILY SINCLAIR

    RE/INVENTED EMILY SINCLAIR

    “Follow your bliss and don't be afraid. Doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.”
    —Joseph Campbell

    Imagine you’ve produced some of the biggest hit shows in television. You’ve won accolades and prestigious, pointy awards for your work. You’re at the top of your game and everyone wants to hire you.
    Yet, you’re totally miserable.
    Not so hard to believe, really.
    In this Re/Invented interview I speak with Emily Sinclair. An executive producer at the top of the TV game, Emily had it all. Executive Producing fancy shows…constant work…big money…someone always handing you coffee the second you want it…life at the top of the TV industry can be very seductive.
    On the surface.
    But Emily Sinclair had other priorities and instead of being an MVP, she was secretly more interested in the MLS. So, she walked away from the top of the TV industry and found a new home in real estate.
    And she’s never been happier.
    Tons of us are toiling away in careers we secretly hate. Worried that our colleagues might judge us for leaving. Fearful that walking away will be the biggest mistake imaginable. Well, you only get one life so you can spend it miserable and worried about what everyone else is thinking of you (they’re not). Or you can follow YOUR bliss and do that thing you truly, madly, deeply want to do.
    As Lucille Ball once said, “I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done.” And you know what, Lucy’s risks led to a pretty f*****g awesome life.
    In this conversation, you’ll discover how Emily Sinclair realized she was miserable. How she worked through her fears of walking away from a big career, to work for no money at all. How she dealt with worries over her family, friends and colleagues judging her. Advice for anyone else who’s spending all day miserable instead of taking a big chance…on themself. INTERVIEW SELECTS:
    2:08 Women working in TV basically age in dog years. And there aren’t a lot of women in their 50s hanging around the craft service table. Trust me.
    9:33 I was like, ugh, the world doesn’t need another f*****g Realtor. And one of my friends said, “The world needs a good Realtor.”
    10:23 I was looking for this kind of home and I found it in real estate.
    10:58 There’s always someone younger, thinner, and hotter, whatever. There was always someone younger than me who didn’t have kids and was fine with traveling 6-9 months out of the year. And I became that annoying producer who was like, “I really need to be home.”
    11:23 I felt like the universe was absolutely just guiding me.
    12:11 I felt for sure that people were going to think I was a failure. And there’s sort of a Stockholm Syndrome that comes with being in entertainment. They beat you up, they make you feel like shit. And the moment you do something good, you’re the best thing ever.
    12:26 I remembered feeling like, I never want to quit cause I’m not a quitter. I want to hold on as long as I possibly can!
    13:15 I watched (my dad) fail so many times I was like, I’m not gonna let go of television!
    13:57 I was really concerned that people were going to say, She failed! She couldn’t hack it! She didn’t make it. Like all that sort of mean girls stuff. And what I found instead was people would reach out to me and be like, oh my god, I love what you’re doing.
    17:04 When I closed my first deal, it was truly like giving birth to a three headed cyclops.
    17:38 I remember getting in my car and I broke into tears, cause I was so happy. Cause I was changing these peoples’ lives.
    18:18 I have agency over my life. I decide when and where I work. I decide which clients I want to work with, and I have absolutely fired clients before. I never feel abused now.
    19:57 If I could go back in time, and be with myself once again, I would say, “Honey, you are worth so much more than this shit.”
    21:26 Don’t worry about the money. It’s gonna fill your soul

    WHEN YOUR SEXUAL FANTASY COMES TRUE

    WHEN YOUR SEXUAL FANTASY COMES TRUE

    fan·ta·sy
    /ˈfan(t)əsē/ noun
    Imagination, especially when extravagant and unrestrained. Often impossible or improbable. It's a fact. We all have fantasies. From scoring the game-winning touchdown, to winning an Academy Award, to destroying the drum kit in your next door neighbor’s garage with a sledge hammer.
    I’m speaking hypothetically, of course.
    Fantasies are a healthy and normal part of the human experience.
    Within the vast array of fantasies, you’ll also find Sexual Fantasies. Their main purpose is to turn us on. But what happens if one of them actually comes true? They say you should never meet your heroes because there’s a good chance they won’t possibly live up to your expectations. I get that.
    Is it the same for sexual fantasies? Are they better kept in the imagination? What if you had the chance to make your biggest sexual fantasy come true in a perfectly safe and consensual way? A sexual fantasy you’ve been dreaming about as long as you can remember.
    Would you do it?
    My guest this week was given the opportunity to make her biggest sexual fantasy come true. Instead of overthinking or being fearful that it or even she might not live up to her expectations, she simply said, “Let’s do this!”
    That split-second decision changed her entire life.
    You’re about to meet a woman who emailed me and said she got the chance to live out her life-long sexual fantasy. She wanted to share her story with me on my podcast. After I determined this was an actual person, and a very funny and charming one at that, I was all in.
    “Let’s do this!”
    This has to be one of my favorite interviews of all time. And within all of the life-changing lessons she learned in this one fateful night, there’s a lot of takeaway:
    Why is authenticity the ultimate aphrodisiac? What’s the one trait all happy couples share? Why did someone bring nachos to a sex party? You’re going to get all of these answers and a whole lot more in this very fun, candid and inspirational conversation I had with a total stranger…who’s no stranger to happiness.
    Don’t forget to purchase my book, 3 Secrets to the Happy and Healthy Relationship You’ve Always F*cking Wanted, a #1 new release on Amazon. It will turn you into a relationship boss!!

    UNDER COVERS "THE SEX COACH"

    UNDER COVERS "THE SEX COACH"

    Welcome back you sickening bitches!
    (sorry…I’ve been watching a lot of RuPaul’s Drag Race)
    Sooooo, after going Under Covers with a few fellas, I figured I’d flip the script and in this episode speak to a professional in the world of sex.
    A Sex Coach, to be exact.
    Okay, what’s a Sex Coach? Great question, thank you for asking.
    According to the folks at Sex Coach U, Sex Coaching is not is not sex therapy. (Sex Coaches) focus on the present and the future, helping clients move towards what they want to achieve. Sex coaching typically takes place over a shorter time frame than sex therapy. Sex coaches are not sex workers. Most sex coaches will work “talk-only” with clients and sex coaches do not offer erotic services.
    In this Under Covers conversation, find out how a childhood with hippie parents shaped the sex coach. How her early sexual experiences and freedom created a natural transition to helping others with their own sex lives. We go into her experiences with kink, role playing and all sorts of private places…with full consent, as always.
    Wherever you are on your journey, remember that there are trained professionals out there who can guide you. Most of us have been raised with a lot of shame and trauma when it comes to sex and sometimes you need someone uniquely trained to help you understand that, unpack it and then kick that shit to the curb.
    There's never any shame in asking for help.
    In other news, I think my semi-sabbatical has come to an end. I’m going to be releasing shows with much more regularity now. I appreciate your patience and for you listening and following the show. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
    If you can do me a solid, please send me an email at info@sexedthemusical.com and let me know your thoughts and what you’d like to hear on the show. I promise I won’t spam you. I barely have enough time to get this shit finished every week. But I’d really love to hear from you.
    And you’d like to go Under Covers with me, please let me know ASAP. I’d love to take this journey with you.
    XOXOXOX,
    Wendy

    UNDER COVERS -- FOREST

    UNDER COVERS -- FOREST

    This week’s conversation is with a male, who spent his first 24 years as a female.
    Not exactly by choice.

    As Forest says on his website, thehumanconditioncoaching.com
    “Growing up as a doubly closeted gay boy in the Midwest, I cultivated a vivid world inside my head where I felt safe and free. Eventually, I would have to come out of hiding no matter how scary it felt. I realized the fear was never going to disappear, but I felt like I was starting to disappear after so many years of keeping parts of myself boxed in.”
    For the first 24 years of his life, Forest didn’t have the language to articulate his experience and was unable to identify himself as transgender. Feeling uncomfortable in his own body, Forest went on an incredible journey to discover his truth.
    Now that he has, he’s helping others find their way as well.
    A self-described empathic, spiritual, queer, trans, kinky, white boy with a vulva, Forest knows a thing or two about authenticity and pleasure. Which is why I really loved going Under Covers with him this week.
    He’s also the first person I’ve interviewed Under Covers that requested his identity not be hidden. This is because he’s on a mission to help others with his work.
    He continues…
    “Healing my relationship with my body, my gender and my sexuality has been at the center of my journey. Abuse has become so normalized in society that sometimes it becomes difficult to notice we are feeling disconnected from ourselves, our needs, our wants, our joy, our pleasure, our senses. It is no accident that people who are not cis white straight men often feel shame around their body and sexuality.”
    Forest feels called on to share everything he’s learned and to guide folks on their own paths inward. Healing is at the center of his work and regardless of where you are on the gender spectrum, there’s a lot of information and inspiration to be gained from this conversation.
    For relationship resources and more, please visit Forest’s website thehumanconditioncoaching.com
    Or you can email him at radiantforest77@gmail.com
    Now…for this conversation, all you need to know is that Forest practices solo polyamory, is a writer, visionary and spiritual slut. That’s where all similarities end…or begin.
    If you’d like a custom autographed copy of my book, 3 Secrets the the Happy and Healthy Relationship You’ve Always F*cking Wanted, but you can’t attend a book-signing in person, email me and I’ll snail mail you a signed bookplate you can affix to your copy. Because, I’m super nice that way.

    UNDER COVERS -- MY 7th GRADE BOYFRIEND

    UNDER COVERS -- MY 7th GRADE BOYFRIEND

    7th grade.
    It’s a boy/girl party in my best friend’s basement. There are about 10 of us there. Rumors by Fleetwood Mac, is playing non-stop on the record player. The lights are low. The air is filled with equal parts anticipation and terror. Someone suggests we play a game called 7 Minutes in Heaven.
    The voice you’re about to hear belongs to someone who was also at that party. We eventually lost touch with each other when I moved to the big city in 8th grade, but we recently reconnected. When I asked him if he’d be interested in being interviewed as part of the Under Covers series he graciously agreed.
    I have no nostalgia for my middle school years. I always felt like a misfit and a weirdo back then. Probably because I was a misfit and a weirdo back then. I never had the right clothes or the right shoes or the right anything. I was frequently bullied and take joy in knowing that my biggest bully married into what’s been described as an extremist religious cult. She is now is required to wear a wig and obey her husband at all times.
    Meanwhile, I do whatever the f**k I want and eat all the bacon I desire. Bwahahahaha!
    Yep, I’m a little triggered by all of this episode but the truth is, this episode ain’t about me. Three years ago on this podcast, I began asking women I’d never met a series of questions about the most intimate details of their lives. I called the interviews Under Covers and you can find all of them here.
    All of the women were asked identical questions about their sexual awakenings, sex education, partners, early experiences and long term relationships, with the hope that my listeners could find healing in discovering how much we all share.
    This season, I’ve flipped the script. I’m taking the exact questions I asked women, and I’m asking them to men.
    Last week I interviewed “David.” A married, gay man, his answers to my questions were incredibly honest, revealing and often hilarious.
    In this Under Covers episode I speak with someone I’m calling “Josh.”
    All you need to know is that “Josh” has been divorced twice, identifies as very heterosexual, and once spent 7 Minutes in Heaven with me in my best friend’s basement.
    That’s where all similarities end…or begin.

    UNDER COVERS -- "DAVID"

    UNDER COVERS -- "DAVID"

    Three years ago on this podcast, I began asking women of different ages, sexual identities and socioeconomic backgrounds a series of questions about the most intimate details of their lives. I called the interviews Under Covers.
    All of the women were asked the same questions about their sexual awakenings, different partners, early experiences and relationships, with the hope that we could find healing in discovering how much we all share.
    Well this season, I’ve decided to flip the script. I’m taking the exact questions I asked women, and I’m asking them to men.
    In this first Under Covers with a man, I speak with a guy I’ve named David. That’s not his real name, every one of these interviews is completely anonymous.
    All you need to know is that David is 51, married and identifies as gay. That’s where all similarities end…or begin.
