A Sexual Roadmap: What’s Coming?

Posted by on Sep 21, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | Comments Off on A Sexual Roadmap: What’s Coming?

Knowing What’s Up the Road . . . Can Change How We Go   “Forewarned is Forearmed.” A professor taught me that a long time ago, and it has informed a lot of my life. If we understand what’s coming, we can be ready. The sexual journey is like that. When we start out, it’s romance and getting into bed. However, when we understand where the journey goes, and the non-erotic parts of the sexual journey, we can be prepared. It’s an important conversation to have with our young people. Some older, wiser people...

“When Should I Start Having Sex, Mom? Dad?” (part 3)

Posted by on Sep 14, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | Comments Off on “When Should I Start Having Sex, Mom? Dad?” (part 3)

Are You Ready for the Question? It’s a tricky one. Our society undergoing a seismic, economic, technological, cultural, and social upheaval. One of the by-products of which, is that we marry later. It used to be 3-4 years from the time of sexual maturity until we married. Now it’s 15-16 years. Our young people are at the height of their sexual energy — and social pressures make it necessary to delay marriage. The traditional sex-rule, “don’t have sex until you marry,” isn’t biologically tenable any...

Pornography: Is It Really a Problem? (part 2)

Posted by on Aug 24, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | 1 comment

What Is a Problem?  What Isn’t? Conversations about porn are often laced with hurt feelings — feelings of inadequacy, being uncherished. Sometimes they come with recrimination and blame. And when porn conversations go badly, it’s often because our starting point is affected by the dirty-sex instincts in history. In these two episodes, we’ll explore the question: “what really isn’t a problem with porn, and what is?” This is episode 2 of 2. Have a listen, Doug 1. Subscribe to the podcast:  click HERE 2....

Masturbation: A Handy Talk with the Kids

Posted by on Aug 10, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | Comments Off on Masturbation: A Handy Talk with the Kids

  “It’ll Make You Blind.” “It’ll Grow Hair on Your Hands” (and other craziness) The starting place for a talk about masturbation is affirming the goodness of sexual hunger and curiosity. However, many grew up with anything but that! The message many grew up with about sex in general, and in particular about exploring and giving our bodies pleasure were strained, or tainted with dirty sex instincts. Without a shared framework, it can be hard to frame this conversation well. But we can do it. Have a...

Waiting for Sex . . . And Feeling Blue (part 3)

Posted by on Aug 3, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | Comments Off on Waiting for Sex . . . And Feeling Blue (part 3)

Waiting is Hard.  Waiting for Sex . . . Harder! Timing sexual experience well is developmentally important. In earlier episodes we’ve explored how long it takes for important psychological and emotional processes to unfold, to form healthy sexual bonds. But since young people come to sexual maturity in their early teens, and since few have undergone those processes by then… “Timing” is often a code word for “waiting.” Bummer. How do we talk to our kids about that? This is part 3 of 3. Have a listen, Doug 1. Subscribe to the...
