Welcome to episode 60 of the Sexology Podcast, my guest today is John Webber, LMFT. In this show, John talks about looking at relationships through the lens of evolutionary psychology, monogamous relationships v non- monogamous relationships and why many therapists don't talk about sexuality.

John is an existential-humanistic therapist rooted in a psychodynamic approach. He believes that a great deal of the issues that bring individuals, couples and families into counseling stem from the need to regulate emotions, accept feelings and decide how they choose to meet them. He promotes the therapy room as a safe, non-judgmental place in which clients can discuss their thoughts and feelings and explore more healthy paths for their lives.

John and his wife are raising three teens. This rich family experience, along with the challenges all families face, guides his work. He has enjoyed volunteering as an assistant scoutmaster (BSA), and as a coach of boy’s and girl’s baseball and softball teams. In his free time John practices self-care by following his interests of reading, gardening, meditation, swimming, writing poetry, podcasting, walking his dog and attempting a new venture as an author.

John held positions in academia and the media industry for 25 years, including; adjunct professor, news director, creative advertising director, and television and film producer. In 2006, he was nominated for an LA Area EMMY Award for a documentary on pediatric physical therapy.

John holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology. He completed a psychotherapy internship at The Jewish Family and Children’s Service in Long Beach, CA. In addition to leading counseling groups at a psychiatric hospital, John has a private practice in Hermosa Beach, CA

Welcome to episode 59 of the Sexology Podcast, my guest today is Dr. Steve Bodansky. In this episode, Dr. Bodansky talked about the concept of extended massive orgasm, the barriers for women around enjoying sexual intercourse and keeping the sexual spark alive when in a long-term relationship.

 

Steve Bodansky together with his wife Vera have been teachers of Sensuality for the past 35 years. They met in 1980 and were married in 1983. Steve received a Masters in Molecular Biology at SUNY at Albany in 1979 and a Doctorate at More University in Sensuality in 1992 with an emphasis on female orgasm. He first studied and then taught at More U. thru 1992. Vera started doing one-hour orgasms demonstrations in 1980 and also received her doctorate in Sensual studies in 1992.

 

Steve became certified to do these demonstrations in 1987. They developed another orgasm school in 1992 after leaving Morehouse called The Welcomed Consensus where they taught for 5 years and certified 5 new students into becoming teachers and demonstrators of orgasm. For the past 22 years they have been coaching students as a couple and started writing books about optimum sensual pleasure.

 

They have trained many people over the past 30 years with courses and personal training and continue to do so. A number of their former students have become sensual facilitators themselves.

 

In this episode, you will hear:

 

  • What are examples of different types of orgasms and what are the differences between how men and women respond?
  • The importance of taking timely breaks in foreplay
  • Is the extended massive orgasm more achievable for men or women?

  • How can we train our partners to become better lovers?
  • What are some of the aspects that need to be present when someone would like to receive maximum pleasure?

Welcome to episode 58 of the Sexology Podcast, my guest today is Dana Nelson who is an American psychologist and counselor living and practicing in Lyon, France (Rhône-Alpes region). In this episode Dana talks about the common challenges long distance relationships place on sexual relations, establishing and understanding boundaries and using technology to stay sexual in a long-distance relationship.

Dana works with English-speaking adults and adolescents, providing individual counseling and psychotherapy, couples and relationship counseling, and group therapy.

 She specializes in working with expats, international students, and others living abroad (both adults and adolescents) who are struggling with emotional and psychological difficulties and who want to develop greater self-awareness and self-compassion, feel more grounded, and develop more meaningful and satisfying connections with those around them. She also specializes in working with intercultural couples and couples whose relationships have been impacted by their life abroad.

 An expat herself, she moved to Lyon from Pennsylvania in 2014 to join her French partner. Before they met in graduate school, she never dreamed of moving to France — but now here she is, on an international adventure!

 Dana's specialization in working with expats and intercultural couples has emerged from her own life experience. Still navigating her own expat journey every day, she knows that life abroad is full of both adventures and many (many!) challenges. However, she also believes that this experience of living abroad — which takes us out of our element and calls into question many things we have taken for granted about ourselves and the world — can provide us with truly unique opportunities to learn about ourselves and to grow both as individuals and in our relationships. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • Dana’s answers to a listener’s email on remaining sexual in a long-distance relationship
  • The common challenges long distance relationships place on sexual relations
  • Learning to be mindful of your partners life in a different country and scheduling time
  • Developing trust in a long-distance relationship
  • Knowing what you want from the relationship
  • Establishing and understanding boundaries
  • The importance of fine tuning better communication
  • Using technology to stay sexual in a long-distance relationship
  • Dana’s personal recommendations to overcoming the obstacles of a long-distance relationship
