Dr. Linda De Villers author of “Love Skills – A Fun, Upbeat Guide to Sex-cessful Relationships” returned. This is a wonderful book – providing step-by-step programs for sexual fun, adventure and growth! To get your own copy, go to www.DrLindaDeVillers.com. Dr Diana and Dr. Linda, friends and colleagues since 1991, discussed Dr. Robert Sternberg’s triangular theory of love. Her graduate students appreciate Dr. De Viller’s Tips for Anxious Moments, and so will our listeners! Tune-in to learn more. Part 2 will broadcast January 31st – reflecting the fully revised 6th Edition of “Love Skills”: Gay and Lesbian relationships. We will also talk about her other book “Simple, Sexy Food.”
Dr. Mark Schoen, a sex educator and a filmmaker, returned to the program. His website www.SexSmartFilms.com is Netflix of sex education – and a sex educator’s dream come true! The most viewed videos – of the 430 films on the site – are the Sensate Focus Exercises, the Science of Orgasm, the True Story of How Babies are Made, the Science of Attraction, and TRANS (about transgendered folks dealing with discrimination and rejection). Under the Education category on the site is Disability. Dr. Mark has paired with Dr. Mitch Tepper to make the next documentary: “Making Love after War,” and the pilot can be viewed on SSF. We hear the story of Aaron and Kat, but these kinds of stories are heard over and over – according to the filmmaker. So much more needs to be done to help vets deal with injuries affecting their sexuality. Dr. Schoen and Dr. Tepper are helping this cause by making this film. They both will be on the program as they get closer to the conclusion. Tune in for a preview!
Rebecca Gould author of “The Multi-Orgasmic Diet – Embrace your sexual energy and awaken your senses for a healthier, happier, sexier you”
Dr. Mark Schoen is a filmmaker. His documentary “TRANS” portrays the transgendered dealing with discrimination and rejection.
Ross Rosenberg returned to the show – this time with even more passion about narcissism in light of the recent election. His best-selling book “The Human Magnet Syndrome: Why We Love People Who Hurt Us”
For many sex becomes less like the fourth of July and more like Thanksgiving. Veronica Monet returned to the program to help keep those fireworks popping! She is a Relationship Coach – www.TheShameFreeZone.com – but from 1989 to 2004 she was a high end escort who catered to wealthy businessmen. Dr. Diana and Veronica discussed what she learned about men while working as an escort; for example, men wanted to feel special, often preferring conversation to sexual activities. Men do want more cuddling, kissing, and physical affection. Both men and women want love and sex. Some men pretend to be macho, but under the right conditions both men and women admit to be more complex than the stereotypes would have it. Tune-in for a provocative discussion!
In these sex-negative times, being a sexologist leads to a certain amount of frustration, sadness, and anger. The remedy, and my perfect guest is Veronica Monet!
Ready For Love Radio Your Host & Life Coach Nikki Leigh
Nikki Leigh is a certified Master Sexpert and a Certified Love Coach – certified by Dr. Ava Cadell’s LOVEOLOGY U. (www.sexpert.com). Nikki is the host and producer of Ready for Love radio on New Visions Radio Network (www.readyforloveradio.com). A big mission for Nikki is helping women with strict, religious backgrounds who feel they can’t or shouldn’t enjoy sex and pleasure. Often religion can be used as a force of oppression; indeed, the Bible has many negative things to say about women and sex. Nikki’s upbringing included such messages…about how women are subservient to men and masturbation is really, really bad. Many religious women feel guilty about enjoying themselves – consequently, they may have trouble truly letting go, surrendering to orgasm. “The pleasure of living and the pleasure of the orgasm are identical. Extreme orgasm anxiety forms the basis of the general fear of life.” ~ Wilhelm Reich. Orgasm is a product of a sexually healthy lifestyle and sexual health is derived from positive sex education!
Carl Frankel – www.CarlFrankel.com – and Dr. Diana began the show with a discussion of Donald Trump, sex and boundaries. Here’s an example: A 17-year-old who has been volunteering for the Trump campaign was explaining that Trump’s comments weren’t predatory because they let him do it because he’s a star, and that is a form of consent. Anderson Cooper sought to determine Trump’s ability to mentally process the charges against him. “You described kissing women without consent, grabbing their genitals. You bragged that you have sexually assaulted women. Do you understand that?” Of course, The Donald did not because he is not well in his head; he has a personality disorder. Carl Frankel has many wise things to say about boundaries. How does one avoid violating boundaries? Check-in (“May I?”), and frame opinions as opinions, not as truths. Clear communication around boundaries are necessary in dating, in committed relationships, in BDSM, and in three-somes – to mention only four areas. Please tune-in for stimulating talk! Carl’s book is “Secrets of the Sex Masters.”
