Welcome to episode 76 of the Sexology Podcast. Our guest today is Rebecca Wong, LCSW-R. Rebecca talks to us about why it is difficult to talk about sex with our partners, the need to spend time with our bodies and discover what feels good and how anxiety can affect performance in the bedroom.  

 

Rebecca is a relationship therapist and consultant. She’s also the creator of Connectfulness, a research-based practice that encourages you to explore and embrace every aspect of your humanity – including everything that’s marvellous and all that’s messy. 

 

Rebecca takes you on a deep dive into that middle place between the personal and the professional, between the places you explore in therapy and the work you do in coaching.  

 

When you explore this fertile in-between space, you can make great things happen. When you truly see yourself, you create the ripple that allow you to be the change you wish to see in the world – and that invites everyone around you to do the same. 

 

In this episode, you will hear:  

 

  • Why it is difficult to talk about sex with our partners 
  • The difficulty of escaping the narrow view of what is “normal” within sexuality  
  • The need to spend time with our bodies and discover what feels good  
  • Guidance points for talking about these issues with our partners  
  • Learning to be supportive whilst being true to yourself  
  • The power dynamics that exist within couples  
  • How anxiety can affect performance in the bedroom  
  • The dynamics of masculine and feminine energy

Welcome to episode 75 of the Sexology Podcast, today my guest is Sophie Lucido Johnson, who talks to us about her new book Many Love: A Memoir of Polyamory and Finding Love(s), what a polyamorous lifestyle looks like to her and the difference between polyamory and open relationships.  

 

Sophie Lucido Johnson gets a lot of questions when she tells people that she’s polyamorous. Many Love is an intimate look at this often misunderstood practice: its history, its misconceptions, and Sophie’s personal transformation from serial monogamist to proud polyamorist. 

 

After trying for years to emulate her boomer parents’ forty-year and still-going-strong marriage, Sophie realized that maybe the love she was looking for was down a road less travelled. In this bold, graphic memoir, she explores her sexuality, her values, and the versions of love our society accepts and practices. Along the way, she shares what it’s like to play on Tinder side-by-side with your boyfriend, encounter—and surmount—many types of jealousy, learn the power of female friendship, and other amazing things that happened when she stopped looking for “the one.” 

 

In a lot of ways, Many Love is Sophie’s love letter to everyone she has ever cared for. Witty, insightful, and complete with illustrations, this debut provides a memorable glimpse into an unconventional life. 

 

In this episode, you will hear:  

 

  • What a polyamorous lifestyle looks like to Sophie  
  • How Sophie emphasizes the relationship whilst being polyamorous  
  • Why polyamory is a good fit for many people but not everyone 
  • Understanding you’ll have to deal with the issue of jealously when becoming polyamorous  
  • Learning how to make polyamory work within a family dynamic  
  • The difference between polyamory and open relationships 
  • The connection between polyamory and queer culture
