Sex Educator (with Amy Baldwin)

Most people have a tendency to get in our heads during sex. Quite often we’re not paying attention to the touch we’re actually thinking about “What are they thinking?” “What are they feeling?” “What does my face look like?” “Am I sweating too much?”

I know, I know, we just recently had two episodes about sex…but something those episodes taught me is that sex is a giant topic with so many ins and outs and little intricacies that it can never really be fully explored.  It also taught me that we all have our own relationship with sex, our own knowledge of it, and our own lack of knowledge of it.  It is with those lessons that I decided to invite this week’s guest on the show and do another sex filled two part interview.  Amy Baldwin is the owner of Pure Pleasure sex shop in Santa Cruz, CA, and is also a certified sex educator.  Different from a typical HHI interview, I put out a call to listeners to send in your sex related questions.  In part one we mostly cover questions sent in by women, in part two, men.  Enjoy.

Making planned times to have sex is a really smart thing to do…You can still keep it spicy by planning to have sex in a different place/style/way than you usually do.
I really push people to honor their no’s and check in with themselves because when we dive into things that we have a big no on already then we create our own trauma in ourselves.
