This episode of the podcast we decided to go off-script to talk about scripts. What do our scripts about sex, relationships, and ourselves open up for us, and what do they close down?
This podcast is all about painful sex, with a focus on how to ensure that sex isn’t painful in ways that you don’t want it to be. We’ll do a future episode about how to bring pain or strong sensations into sex if that is something you want to do.
Having done 50 or so episodes of the podcast we decided finally to talk in depth about penis-in-vagina sex (PIV).
This week we spent the podcast talking about trans and the Gender Recognition Act (GRA) given that this is in the news so much at the moment.
This week on the podcast we tackled the issue of jealousy in answer to the following question…
Is jealousy healthy in a relationship? Or else, is the absence of jealousy unhealthy or even possible? If it is, how do we get there? If it’s not, what do we do to manage it? And how do we know whether it comes more from us or the behaviour of other person?
An interview with Alex Iantaffi about queer, neurodiversity, and families
In the podcast this week we talked around a topic that a listener had emailed in about: the wisdom of getting back together with somebody you’ve broken up with.
How we think staying with feelings in relationships is the best thing to do and how we might actually do that (even though it’s super hard).
We were inspired to do this podcast by a Dan Savage podcast where Dan suggested that a non-monogamous person starting a relationship with a monogamous person could always try a monogamous agreement for a while and then shift to a non-monogamous one.
We got to talking about the kinds of questions we’d like to answer on this podcast. Something that came up, initially seeming like quite a simple one, was embarrassing things happening during sex – like farting while receiving a blowjob. We decided to widen this out to cover the whole topic of toilets and bodily functions in relation to sex and relationships. It became rather deeper than we’d expected.
