Living life with intentions

Hillary and Berg are very authentic and realized.  I’d say that they are fully realized, but that would be counter to the idea of a constant journey.

We talk about several different points from #metoo, from dealing with your parents and the loss of the generational wisdom as we begin to live openly and outwardly in ways that the previous generations simply don’t understand as a generalization.

Flashback to a Burning Man wedding

I had the privilege of attending Hillary and David’s wedding at Burning Man, and how we get to chat with them about their new commitment to their relationship.  They’re in their 20’s and living in Denver, CO.

They are a wonderfully original couple and talk about their status for themselves, and how that relates to their family life and friends.

If you’re curious or wondering what the conversation sounds like when you want to authentically live a life thats your own.

The importance of touch. Is sex all there is?

Why is sex so important?  Is it the sex at all?  Is it touch?  If sex isn’t desired or possible, what now?  Meet Janet:

She’s the first of a few guests that are going to focus on the importance of touch in their lives.  Why they need it and where they get it from.  The rabbit hole is about to get deeper.

Don’t worry, its got a happy ending.

I think firemen are sexy….

Genevive and Alex return to talk about role playing, a particular fantasy of Genevive’s.

We talk about the how and why.  Interested?  How to get your partner interested or excited.  Here are some fun games to try and play.

This is at the heart of the podcast.  How to have a better relationship through better sex.

-The American Sex Pod

We realized, for reasons unknown, this original post was silent.  We’re trying to figure out why, but nonetheless, here you go.  The next episode release will be tomorrow, on schedule.

How long is….long enough?

Alex and Genevive are back post Burning Man to talk about duration, porn and how long is too long?

Men and women climax differently and with different stimulus.  The key to being a great lover is putting your attention on the other person, and then everyone has at least one person focused on them.  Porn focuses you on yourself UNLESS you can retrain your “practice” to do just that…practice.  If you allow porn to be totally self-indulgent and not self-exploratory then it can be problematic like Alex says.

There’s advice, some kinky stories and some lessons to be learned.

Purr and Gadget at Burning Man

We are at Burning Man.  Recorded on the playa with Purr and Gadget, they are a homosexual monogamous couple.  We talk all about why they make the choices they make, and they even have for the first time a conversation about a third party in their relationship.

If you’ve ever wondered or speculated about who goes to Burning Man and why, I think Purr and Gadget might shed some light and really give you a perspective of the wide variety of people and things happening at this world famous experience.

Dirty Talk!

We’re back with Alex and Genevive and honestly it’s not often I, as a sex podcast host, learn something completely new during a podcast, but wow, I was doing dirty talk all wrong.

Are you doing it right?  Check in and find out what turns men and women on when you want to use your voice to make everything sexy.

It can be a vulnerable state opening yourself up and talking about all the wonderful and naughty things, and that vulnerability can be scary.  Of course, that is what makes it so good.

I bet you’ll learn something, I did.

Let’s have a baby!!!

So now we come back around to Alex and Genevive who are now almost 5 months pregnant….with twins!!

We check in on them and how they are doing.  How is being pregnant affected their open relationship and their sex life in general.

You’ll get to hear the truth on what is happening and how each are dealing with a new direction This isn’t the typical candy coated “being pregnant is beautiful” session.  You get the good, the bad, and the sexy.

Listen in!

What does it mean to be “open”?

We’re concluding our introductory sessions with Jackie and Mike, and we say introductory because any more sessions with them will simply be wonderful.

What does it mean to be “open”?  How do we define that in a world that is both defining and redefining sexuality and gender and at the same time seems to be insisting we stop defining things.

It can be confusing.  Hopefully, after 30 minutes with Jackie and Mike, it will be less daunting for you, you and your partner or partners.

To be open or not to be….at the beginning

Jackie and Mike are a wealth of experience and knowledge.  We talk about many of the beginners guides to “dipping your toe” in without drowning.

Some amazing pointers to help start, and how to deal with those “pointers” when they inevitably fail.

It’s a great sexy discussion including the best way to give a blowjob.  You might want to pay attention to that one.
