I fear I love……

Or do you love your fear? What is love? Here’s my take:

Some of you may agree, some may vehemently disagree, but objectively, I think love is the emotion of “fear” redirected to the positive and fear is the negative reaction to the emotion we call “fear”.

If you’re intrigued, give a listen. If you want to hear a man ramble on about the paradoxical existential reality of “love” as our purpose or our meaning to our existence, give a listen.

Its a monologue. Listen with your friend or lover and discuss. We should have conversations about more than “is the milk expired”, or “did you see what Mary was wearing?” or fuck, “the president is a disaster of 5 generations.” Think bigger.

What do you get out of it? Nick and Auryn

What do you get out of an open relationship?  It can’t be stability, companionship, ride or die, love conquers all – hell, you sleep with other people!  I MUST NOT BE ENOUGH!!!

If you’ve had, have or fear you’ll have these thoughts, this final interview of the year is for you.  

I’ll spoil the ending – you are.

Kink,Poly and discovery with Nick and Auryn

More and more and more….

Nick and Auryn met when they didn’t want to.  They were both coming out of long term relationships with no or little experience in poly relationships, kink or otherwise.  

They are a wonderful example of how when you’re ready, you may meet that certain person who is on the same wavelength and you both begin to oscillate in the same way and change together.  Its what we all dream of, many of us won’t experience, but its worth the try.  This is was it looks like when its right.  

Listen, learn, and hope.

I love sex….am I an addict? with Dr. Shannon Chavez

So if you’ve been paying attention, we think sex is pretty great.  We like to do it as much as possible, and experiment, and well, play.

While we have the doctor’s ear, we talk about those questions regular couples can’t answer.  Is there such as thing as too much sex?  Am I an addict?  Am I “NORMAL”???

We have our own thoughts on this, but listen in and see what the doctor has to say about it.

Again, many thanks to Dr. Chavez for her time and expertise.  We are very grateful to be able to share this with interested humans.

The power of simply touch. With Epiphany Jordan

We continue with this wonderful and enlightening conversation with Epiphany who tells her life journey and discovery.  She talks about why she felt the need for increased touch after a sexual relationship ended, and she struggled to find a new relationship given her age, demographic, location and other casual circumstances.

I think more people relate to Epiphany than our society wants to imagine, and the benefit from her suggestions for increased touch could, without hyperbole, change the world.

Her book is available on eBook distributors on November 27th.  Its well worth the read, and keep it for referenace as you begin your new journey into the unknown.

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.

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.

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.

I love my sexuality! What do I tell my children? When do I tell them? What do they already know???

We’re back with Janet who is wonderfully open and fun.  She talks more about her work and her life, and really opens up to us about her relationship with her work to her family life.

Its not all sunshine and roses, and choosing to live an authentic lifestyle can have consequences and challenges.  As in Janet’s case, we hope you too find that “the truth will set you free.”

If you enjoyed this episode, please remember to like and comment.

We hope this is helping.

Is cuddling enough? Guest: Epihpany Jordan

We talk an awful lot about sex here.  However, a book came across our desks that really interested us.  Its called “Somebody Hold Me” by Epiphany Jordan and is its being released on Nov 27th on ebooks everywhere.

Over the next two episodes we chat with Epiphany about her path from a sexualized being to a possibly asexual being through circumstance, age, health etc.  Do our needs of touch and the chemical reaction to this become obselete simply because we can’t find an emotion or physical partner to have sex with?  Our answer is no, and Epiphany delivers a wonder textbook on how to naviagate the world of touch without sexualizing it.

We are fascinated.

-The American Sex Pod

Epiphany’s book will release online on Nov 27th on most ebook retailers.  We highly reccomend it!
