Help with Sexual Communication

Sexual communication can be difficult, awkward, and scary.

I was recently interviewed on the podcast show "Full Speech Ahead!" on how to get what you want in your sex life through better communication. The host, Milo Shapiro, is a long time speaker, a public speaking coach, and has an improv background, which really made it a fun interview. You can catch the posted version of this interesting, valuable interview on the "Podcast Page" on www.FullSpeechAhead.com

Night Owl Women Have More Sex

Dr. Jenn & Marc Bailey, San Diego News Anchor Channel 6These research findings aren't that surprising: Women and men who stay up later have more sex. What is interesting is that the women were found to be higher risk-takers overall, as well as have higher cortisol levels. And these night owl women were less likely to be in long-term relationships, compared to women who prefer to get to bed earlier. I am far from an evolutionary biologist, but I discuss the findings and implications of a recent Univeristy of Chicago research study on Channel 6's San Diego Living this morning.

Why Progressive Values Mean Happier Sex

pro·gres·sive: (of a group, person, or idea) favoring or implementing social reform or new, liberal ideas.

I'm a 2014 Institute Fellow in the San Diego Leadership Alliance. This is a nonprofit organization dedicated to progressive values and causes in San Diego and cultivating new progressive leaders. It's an amazing program and bridges my interests in sexual health education, women's reproductive rights, sexual rights, LGBT rights, holistic health, and overall community health, into the realm of politics, public policy, and advocacy.

What happens if we don't favor social reform in the sexual realm? We live from and in fear. Our government has the right to control our bodies. People are denied the right to love who they want and have (consensual) sex in the way they want, without shame. Sex is a powerful force. We can respect and honor that this means responsibilitiy and aware choices. We can also respect and honor that this means tolerance that each person's experience and expression of the power of sex may be different. Fear, shame, embarrassment, and control brings everyone down in their sexual experiences. This seems to be the American way. What a shame.

If you're in the San Diego area and would like to support progressive values in our city, please come out to the fundraising Happy Hour on Wednesday, May 14, to support the 2015 Class of the San Diego Leadership Alliance. Purchase tickets HERE.

Why is there a Birth Control Debate?

It's mind-boggling the way that some American leaders and politicians view female sexuality. I think this cartoon summarizes the contradictions and foolishness of the debate pretty well. Why do we need to keep reminding people that sex is a normal, natural, healthy part of human expression and existence?
