Episode 064: The Guilty Sin of Pleasure

featuring Robin LaCross

Why is pleasure associated with guilt? All too often we are made to feel bad when we’re feeling oh so good. Whether it’s delighting in sexual pleasures, enjoying a delicious meal, or simply having a good time, too much pleasure is often thought of as sinful. What’s particularly fascinating is how difficult it is for us to talk about pleasure. It’s hard for us to talk to our lovers about it and even more uncomfortable to discuss with our children.

As a result of our reluctance to speak of pleasure, we limit the depth of our sexual and pleasurable experiences, we hinder our lover’s ability to please us and shortchange our kids on their future pleasure and enjoyment not only of sex but life in general. Pleasure is about more than just sex. We don’t have good role models when it comes to giving, receiving, or discussing pleasure. In this episode, learn easy ways to bring more pleasure into our lives, how to talk to girls and boys about sexual pleasure, and why people suck at sex.

Special Guest

Robin LaCross is a holistic health practitioner who specializes in women’s reproductive health. She has been using and teaching natural birth control methods for over 25 years. Robin is passionate about empowering women and making sure all girls grow up educated about their bodies.  

Robin believes that by changing the way parents talk to their kids about the sex we can reduce unintended pregnancies and the spread of STDs in the world. To this end, Robin founded the HPV Education Project to raise awareness about the virus and the problems it causes. She also created a pair of online interview series called the Raising Empowered Daughters Summit and the Raising Empowered Kids Interview Series where she interviewed over 40 experts on a wide variety of topics designed to empower parents to communicate freely with their children about growing up, sex, relationships, and staying safe.

Robin helps parents prepare for these challenging conversations by offering online training programs, private coaching and through her weekly radio show, Holistic Sex Ed Radio on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
