TEDxPhoenixville 2014 Photos

Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n Roll? Sign me up! That was the theme of the 5th annual TEDxPhoenixville event on September 27, 2014. I brought a heavier slant to the theme as a speaker about female sexual disempowerment, shame, and personal responsibility, and concluded by giving the audience a voice to take a stand for something different. It was really cool to have Kelly Stoetzel, the Content Director for TED, as our event emcee. The Colonial Theater (site of The Blob movie) did a wonderful job organizing the event (with the help of over 50 volunteers). And we had the last-minute bonus of a performance by a real rock 'n roller - Eric Bazilian of The Hooters! It was such a fun, powerful, community-minded day, I wanted to share some of the photos with you here :)

Lack of Experience = Happier Marriage??

Does lack of experience in relationships prior to marriage make you more blissful in your marriage? How about having more people in attendance at your wedding? Research shows that these might make for a happier marriage. I discuss some recent research by the National Marriage Project with Marc Bailey on San Diego Living, Channel 6.

Sex, Overweight Americans, & XL Love

San Diego SexologistWith 69% of Americans overweight, and over a third of those obese, it's interesting that we don't know that much about how this impacts intimacy, sex, and relationships. There's been some fascinating recent research on this topic (including a new book called XL Love), and I discuss this on San Diego Living this morning with Marc Bailey. In general I think it's important to take a balanced approach with a topic like this - don't shame yourself and others because that causes a negative spiral of self-hate. But also be mindful of honoring and respecting your body through conscious eating choices and regular exercise. These are all important aspects of a healthy sex life!

ArmaGAYddon - Marriage Equality PSA from Ireland

Many of the reasons against marriage equality and allowing gay- and lesbian-identified folks the right to marry are knee-jerk fear reactions, with little foundation in reality. This PSA from Ireland beautifuls depicts how ridiculous these fears are. My favorite line: "The weddings were unbelievable - I found myself completely underdressed. And the cakes...they were amazing."

5 Ways to Celebrate National Orgasm Day

It's July 31, 2014, and that means it's National Orgasm Day! I honestly don't know which nation claims this day, but I'm fine treating it like an International Orgasm Day :) Here are five suggestions for making the most of this day...

1. Go for a personal best in the number of orgasms you have in one day.

2. Become more intimate with your knowledge of what an orgasm feels like to you, e.g., the number of muscle contractions, a feeling of spreading warmth, positive thoughts, genital swelling, tension, etc.

3. Try out a new position, technique, or toy, either alone or with a partner.

4. Ask three of your friends to describe what orgasms are like for them.

5. Decide once and for all to never fake an orgasm again.

This day has come! And hopefully you will too :)
