Welcome to episode 51 of the Sexology Podcast, today I am delighted to be joined by Deborah Beaumont. We talk about how cancer diagnosis may affect an individual’s sexuality and sex life, the effects it can have a survivors’ intimate relationships and coping mechanisms recommended to improve their sexual health.

 

Deborah Beaumont is an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse and two-time cancer survivor. After her last experience with cancer (bilateral breast cancer) and multiple complications from treatments she was frustrated with conventional medicine telling he the only thing she could do to prevent another recurrence of cancer was to take prescriptions, get yearly check-ups and hope for the best that it didn't return. Feeling there was a need to know about more about prevention and making treatment decisions that supported having a good quality of life (given all the treatment and medication side effects she experienced) she immersed herself in learning about holistic and integrative treatment that complimented the medical advice she was being given.

 

She is now a certified functional medicine practitioner and is a holistic and integrative health coach supporting women and empowering them to make treatment decisions not only in treating cancer reclaiming their health and having a good quality of life after chemo and active treatment is done. She emphasizes an integrative mind-body approach to health, healing and living.

 

She works with women by phone and Skype and provides coaching and consultation to women looking for holistic and integrative recovery.

 

In this episode, you will hear:

Welcome to episode 50 of the Sexology Podcast, today I am delighted to be joined by Dan Griffin, M.A., who talks to us about the meaning behind “The Man Rules”, his thoughts on recent sexual allegations that have broken in the media and the importance of context and consent in alternative sexual behaviors.

Dan Griffin, M.A., is an internationally recognized author, thought leader, and expert on men’s relationships and masculinity.

Dan’s work and life is dedicated to exploring and redefining what it means to be a man in the 21st century. Dan is dedicated to helping men be better men by understanding the impact of the Man Rules on their lives and finding the success in their personal lives they are striving for in the professional lives. Griffin’s book, A Man’s Way through Relationships, is the first book written specifically to help men create healthy relationships while navigating the challenges of the “Man Rules™,” those ideas men internalize at very young ages about how to be real boys and men.

Griffin earned a Master’s degree in Sociology from the University of Kansas where his graduate work was the first qualitative study centered on the social construction of masculinity in the culture of Alcoholics Anonymous.
