The doctor is in…. with Dr. Shannon Chavez

We speak to a lot of couples, and we get to hear about their lives and their relationships.  Why they make the choices they make, and how they make those choices work, or not.

Today, we talked with Dr. Shannon Chavez, a sex therapist in Beverly Hills, California.  She chats with us about her personal journey with her own relationships, her youth, and why she chose sex therapy as her way to interact with her community.

Her insights verify much of what we have discovered with many of our previous guests, but her insights are backed by degrees and years of experience we’ll simply never have.

We so appreciated her time and insight into “What is love?”

Is cuddling enough? With Epiphany Jordan

We talk an awful lot about sex here, but what happens if you’re asexual, possibly due to circumstance such as age or health?  Do your needs of human contact and the chemical experience of oxytocin diminished?

We don’t think so.

A book came across our desk called “Somebody Hold Me” by Epiphany Jordan.  Epiphany lives in Texas.  She wrote a “how to” book on the power of human touch through “cuddling” or simply increased human contact.

If you’re like my mother, and find this silly, you probably need it more than anyone.  Take 30 mins and you’ll discover how to drastically and immediately improve your life.

Buy the book and have a reference guide that will instantly improve your happiness factor.

”Somebody Hold me” is available across most major ebook markets on November 27th.

There’s just so much more to learn…..

We continue with Bella this week.  She has simply experienced more in her life than most of us could hope to experience in 10 lifetimes.  Her wisdom and outlook on life and its relationship to sex is fascinating.

She talks about children, polyamory, dom/sub relationships and so much more.  Its 25 min of constant learning.  We were mesmerized.
