What is Mindful Sex? Mindfulness, Women, & Intimacy

Mindfulness and sex - my two favorite topics to talk about! And who better to discuss mindful sex with, than the sexpert couple in Tampa, FL, who refer to themselves as The Love Birds! (Which totally makes sense, because they've been married a long time, they are sex and love experts, and their last name is Bird!) I met these two a few years ago at the annual AASECT sexuality conference, where we hit it off immediately. Chuck and JoAnn Bird are good people. So I was thrilled when they asked to interview me for their weekly radio show Intimate Chat with the Love Birds.

I join their show at around the 18-minute point. We discuss how mindfulness is vitally important to breaking negative relationship patterns, what's needed for female sexual empowerment, and tips to put mindfulness into action. We also explain our running joke about Nut Porn ;) Have a listen and let me know what you think about sex and mindfulness!

Sex: Mind full or Mindful? TEDxWomen AFC

"We don't talk about the complexity of sexuality. What happens when we don't talk about it is that sexuality ends up on the shadows, and that is where we have shame, embarrassment, exploitation, abuse, and fear." ~Jennifer Gunsaullus, PhD

SEx: Mind Full or Mindful? TEDx Talk by San Diego Sexologist Dr. Jenn Gunsaullus.

I was thrilled to speak at America's Finest City's TEDxWomen* event in San Diego on December 2, 2012, about my favorite topics of sex, female sexuality, and mindfulness.

Growing up as a girl in American society means that you likely learned a lot of negative and shameful messages about your body and sex, and received poor sex education. In this TEDx Talk, I discuss the state of affairs around female sexuality in the U.S.

Also, you can check out 10 of the Sexiest TED Talks about Sex. Thank you for viewing and I'd love to hear what you have to say about sex, female sexuality, and mindfulness!

*(Due to a music copyright infringement claim, all of the videos from that event were removed from the TEDx YouTube page in May of 2016. This pretty much sucked, because there were so many great comments, likes, and interactions around sex, mindfulness, and this talk! So, I removed the musical intro and am now posting to my YouTube channel. I hope you enjoy it!)
