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.

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!)

Speakers for TEDxWomen in San Diego

The speaker's list for this Sunday's TEDxWomen in San Diego for America's Finest City is rocking! From authors, to physicians, to artists, and professors, I really anticipate this to be a moving conference, and I'm excited to be a part of a global women's event. For me and my topic of mindfulness and sex, the event theme of "the space between" speaks to all the shadows and silence around sexuality. For many women, their unspoken shame, guilt, and discomfort -- as learned within our society -- keeps them in fear and silence around their sexual needs, desires, and boundaries. And in the long run, this sucks for all of us. I'm going to speak to this concern and how mindfulness tools are the key to turning this around.

Come on out Sunday and join this conversation about "the space between"!
