Peggy Orenstein: When Boys and Men Talk About Sex

Peggy Orenstein: When Boys and Men Talk About Sex
“From the get-go, boys are raised in a more emotionally impoverished landscape than girls,” says Peggy Orenstein, author of Girls and Sex and her latest, Boys and Sex. Orenstein’s research on how girls, boys, women, and men view sex, love, porn, the hook-up culture, and modern masculinity is: fascinating. In this episode, she shares from the many conversations she’s had about sex and vulnerability that have changed her own perspective, and certainly ours. How and from where do we learn about intimacy? What might we need to re-learn? Orenstein’s work is impactful whether or not you have children, but if you do, hear out what she has to say about talking with your kids about sex.

Judy Ho: Stopping Self-Sabotage

In partnership with our friends at Teslar Watches
Judy Ho: Stopping Self-Sabotage
“Allow the thought to be there, but change your relationship to the thought,” says Judy Ho, PhD, clinical neuropsychologist and author of Stop Self-Sabotage. Dr. Ho shares her toolbox for overcoming self-sabotaging and self-destructive behavior. She explains to Will Cole and Seamus Mullen how trauma plays a role and why we might find ourselves in situations that mimic old wounds. She teaches de-stressing practices: box-breathing, slowing our thoughts by writing them down, and physicalizing an emotion to create distance between yourself and it. Ho says the perception that we don’t have control is wrong—we do have the power to choose, and self-sabotaging behavior can be transformed. (Also: You didn’t ruin everything by eating that one piece of cake.)
