Episode 012: Stop the Madness! Reinventing Sex For Women

featuring Jennifer Gunsaullus

Have you ever laid down the ground rules with a date before you started fooling around only to have them push the limits of what you agreed to? Suddenly you’re in the awkward position of saying “NO”. Or going along with something you clearly stated was a line you didn’t want to cross? Dr Jennifer Gunsaullus shares a story of “consent violation” and explores how social sexual expectations for men and women have created an unhealthy sexual dynamic in our society.

In this episode, Robin and Dr Jenn examine the phenomenon of how girls grow up knowing they are “empowered” yet this doesn’t translate into the realm of sexuality. Most young women are unsure how to handle sexual situations in which they sometimes find themselves. She discusses why talking to kids about pleasure is so hard and how to make this conversation easier. By exploring the three aspects of Mindful Sex, Dr Jenn shares how to lovingly unpack our stories around sex and avoid passing unconscious messages onto the next generation.
