Welcome to episode 67 of the Sexology Podcast, today I’m joined by Erica Garza who talks to us about her book Getting Off, the connection between sexual shame and addiction and the story of her recovery from sexual addiction 

Born in Los Angeles to Mexican parents, Erica Garza has spent most of her adult life traveling and living abroad. She currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband and daughter. Erica’s essays have appeared in Salon, Narratively, BUST, Marie Claire, Good Housekeeping, Refinery29, Bustle, Alternet, Vivala, HelloGiggles, the Los Angeles Review, and Australia’s Mamamia and The Motherish.

 

She has appeared as a guest on BBC Radio 4, Thom Hartmann’s The Big Picture, and August McLaughlin’s Girl Boner Radio. In 2010, she earned her MFA in Creative Nonfiction at Columbia University. Her memoir on sex addiction, Getting Off, is her first book.

 

Her addiction follows and transforms with her in each point in her coming-of-age, which spans the transition from dial-up to digital in the 1990s and early 2000s. From Playboys hidden discreetly under mattresses to softcore on late night cable to vast varieties of porn ubiquitous and easily accessible across the internet, Garza’s personal account is also a study of an era in which both technology and sex changed dramatically in our everyday lives.  

GETTING OFF is as raw and unflinching a personal story as it is an insightful and modern perspective on sexuality and addiction. Garza doesn’t find a tidy cure for her obsessions, but in the absence of false hope and prepackaged redemption is a credibly imperfect and remarkably relatable journey toward self-acceptance.

 

In this episode, you will hear:

 

  • The challenge of talking about her sex life openly
  • Why Erica decided to share her story
  • The perspective of sex addiction being an ethnic minority and female
  • How sex addiction can affect anyone in life
  • The ways in which porn can be used as a crutch
  • How over-viewing porn can lead to desensitization
  • The connection between sexual shame and addiction
  • What made Erica comfortable disclosing her issues to her now husband

EP66 - Joy of intimacy with Rabbi Manis Friedman

 

Welcome to episode 66 of the Sexology Podcast, today I’m joined by Rabbi Manis Friedman who speaks to me about his book The Joy of Intimacy, the difference between sex and intimacy, how pornography has degraded intimacy and how giving each other space can improve intimacy.

 

World-renowned author, counselor, lecturer and philosopher, Rabbi Manis Friedman uses ancient wisdom and modern wit as he captivates audiences around the country and the world. He hosts his own critically acclaimed cable television series, Torah Forum with Manis Friedman, syndicated throughout North America. Over 150,000 copies of his provocative yet entertaining tapes, both audio and video have been sold.

 

Rabbi Friedman’s first book, Doesn’t Anyone Blush Anymore? published by Harper San Francisco in 1990, was widely praised and is currently in its fourth printing. Rabbi Friedman is a noted Biblical scholar, recognized for his sagacious grasp of Jewish mysticism and a professionally ranked member of the National Speakers Association.

 

Rabbi Friedman was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1946 and immigrated with his family to the United States in 1950. He received his rabbinic ordination from the Rabbinical College of Canada in 1969.

 

When he takes the podium, Rabbi Manis Friedman enthuses each of his listeners with a sense of purpose and definite direction. Perhaps his greatest gift of all is his balance of compassion and wisdom.

 

In this episode, you will hear:

 

  • How Rabbi Manis Friedman became interested in teaching these topics
  • The difference between sex and intimacy
  • How Rabbi Manis Friedman defines intimacy
  • The ways in which we have disregarded intimacy as a society
  • Why the bedroom needs to be a very sacred and private space
  • How pornography has degraded intimacy
  • The need to create time for intimacy and not work too hard and reserve our energy
  • How giving each other space can improve intimacy

Welcome to episode 65 of the Sexology Podcast, today I’m joined by Debra Wickman M.D. who talks to us about holistic sexual medicine, the wheel of sexual experience and how it works and the best way to bring up sexual issues with your physician.

Dr. Debra Wickman is a gynecologist with more than 20 years of experience. She completed a fellowship in Female Sexual Medicine at UCLA, and is also trained as a sexuality counsellor.

Her model of diagnosis and treatment incorporates programs that uniquely educate, empower, and encourage personal growth, sexual discovery and healing for women.

The programs look beyond a singular medical, pharmaceutical, or behavioural therapy, and instead integrate all approaches from a mind-body perspective. Central to her model is a holistic sexuality approach, using her training as a gynaecologist to link the physical aspect of healing with the mental, emotional and spiritual facets to treat the whole sexual being.           

Her research interests include exploring effects of sexual practices on the vaginal microbiome, and methods to condition the female arousal response.

She is a popular workshop speaker for women’s groups and has also presented lectures and research at venues such as the World Congress of Sexual Medicine in Beijing, China; ACOG 2017 Annual Clinical & Scientific Meeting, AASECT 2017 Annual Meeting and the World Association of Sexual Health in Prague, Czech Republic. She is featured in the 2017 book – Outstanding Results – authoring a chapter entitled “Outstanding Doctor–Patient Relationships: How to Connect with your Physician and Receive Optimal Care”.           

In this episode, you will hear:

  • How Debra became interested in applying holistic sexuality approach
  • How physicians struggle to discuss sexual issues due to limited time
  • The wheel of sexual experience and how it works
  • Overcoming limiting beliefs passed down from parents
  • The challenge and difficulty of great orgasms
  • The damage getting sexual information from pornography can do
  • The best way to bring up sexual issues with your physician
  • Making sure you feel comfortable and connected when addressing these issues
