Welcome to episode 223 of the Sexology Podcast! Today I'm delighted to welcome A.B. Kelleher to the podcast. In this episode, A.B. Kelleher speaks to me about his book Little Green Pills, how he became interested to write the book, learning to cultivate your imagination for better sex and analyzing why shame stops people from cultivating their sexual fantasies. 

 

A.B. Kelleher is the author of Little Green Pills - It all started in a clinical trial to help women with low libido. But when a black-market version of synthetic testosterone starts spreading like wildfire, the effects don't stop with amped-up love lives.  

 

As a sexual revolution that makes the 1960s look like Victorian England sweeps the US, and social roles radically shift, the government creates the Reproductive Health Administration (RHA) to suppress trafficking in Little Green Pills. As the newest iteration of the "War on Drugs" fails miserably, life for RHA Director Eric Veritan is about to get dangerously interesting. 

 

In this episode, you will hear: 

  

  • How A.B Kelleher became interested in writing Little Green Pills 
  • The relationship between sex drive and testosterone  
  • How sex can make almost anything more interesting! 
  • Approaching erotica for the first time with Little Green Pills 
  • Learning to cultivate your imagination for better sex 
  • How you can best augment your fantasies  
  • Why some people feel ashamed for what turns them on  
  • Analyzing shame stories and what stops people from cultivating their sexual fantasies  
  • How medical treatments alongside therapy can work great to improve your sex-life

Welcome to episode 221 of the Sexology Podcast! Today I'm delighted to welcome back Tara Galeano to the podcast. In this episode, Tara talks to me about her new book; “Rediscovering My Body”, how sex can be a form of healing and looking at the processing that needs to take place to heal sexual dysfunction. 

 

Author Tara Galeano has worked with women for over two decades to get their sexy back. She knows that there is pleasure in the body, beyond our wildest dreams, and every woman can access it. In the "Rediscovering My Body" book, Tara teaches women how to show up for pleasure in their lives. She rediscovered her own body after leaving her twenty-five-year marriage. Realizing that she had given so much of herself away, she knew that she needed to come back to the body's inherent wisdom.  

 

Through reconnecting with her body, Tara was able to understand what was right and pleasurable for her, how best to proceed from this wisdom, and most importantly, how to teach these lessons to other women who are clamoring for the same truths so that they too could transform their lives and reclaim their sensuality. Now Tara has embodied this path and is moving forward to share this with women everywhere! 

 

In this episode, you will hear: 

  

  • Why Tara decided to write her new book “Rediscovering My Body” 
  • Learning to deal with residual emotions  
  • How sex can be a form of healing  
  • The way in which self-love fosters healing  
  • The barriers that get in the way of women experiencing embodiment  
  • How you can change the conversation you have with your body  
  • Reacquainting with your body  
  • Understanding the need to have patience and give yourself time  
  • Overcoming frustration  
  • Working on open communication with your partner 
  • Acknowledging and working on emotions that can resurface  
  • The processing that needs to take place to heal sexual dysfunction
