Each Monday morning, Rick Davis who coordinates my social media, and I look at what is my weekly Theme. This week was Seeking / Searching. Then I started looking at all the people and events in my field that have Inspired me because people often ask me "What inspired you to work in sexuality?' Answer - the people who told me how my work had impacted them and their relationships. I am so so inspired by heart and passion. By people who don't hear "No, Can't Happen, Who do You Think You Are?" when their heart's voice says Keep going you're right. I am inspired by my colleagues who keep me accountable. My peers who have come from very disparate backgrounds to create new ground breaking toys and products that have contributed worldwide to people's sexual connection and pleasure. Tom Stewart - Sportsheets, Tiffany York of MyFixsation, Ethan Imboden of Jimmy Jane, Jackie Brandwynne of Very Private Inc, Tony Levine of Big Teaze Toys, Bruce and Melody Murison of Standard Innovatons that created the first couple's vibe the We-Vibe. From a former marine to industrial designer to consumer products guru to electrical engineer none of these people started in the area of sex enhancing products yet their inspirations were tied to them not finding what they wanted and others said they needed. I am very inspired by people who have the strength to standup even when their beliefs aren't popular. Greg Paulk who rescinded his Ex-gay Reparative Therapy stance, Matt Moore who shared he knows it's impossible to change yourself and still struggles with blending his faith and not acting on his homosexual attractions, Brain McNaught the Godfather of Gay Sensitivity who is known worldwide for his Corporate Diversity Trainings. Dr. David Satcher who would not back down on his Surgeon-General's Call to Action on Sexuality under the sexaully repressive politics of the Bush Jr White House. In closing I am inspired by the Elizabeth Smart's John Hopkins presentation this week was so powerfully highlighted that comprehensive sexual education is needed. This is one very strong, brave young woman. http://fox13now.com/2013/05/06/video-elizabeth-smart-speaks-at-johns-hopkins-university/

An article earlier this week about the former poster boy for Reparative Therapy Ex-gay Leader John Paulk reversing his stand on this therapy spurred me to ask my terrific colleague Dr. Winston Wilde to shine a light on Reparative Therapy. Especially in light of a California Bill SB-1172 Sexual Orientation Change efforts. This bill was signed by Gov. Brown September 30, 2012 and point 865.1 specifically states it is not to be administered to anyone under 18. Then the day of this interview Matt Moore referred to as the ex-gay Christian Blogger was exposed to have been on the gay dating site Grindr. Dr. Wilde feels it s important for our professional peers to create a policy statement about this form of therapy. What is it? Does it actually work? What is the science behind it? Are trained professionals doing this? Why wouldn't Michelle Bachmann and her husband talk about their use of it during her Presidential campaign? Winston Wilde - 1999 Doctor of Human Sexuality: Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, San Francisco. 1997 Masters in Clinical Psychology: Antioch University Los Angeles. 1995 Bachelors in Liberal Arts: Antioch University Los Angeles. Specialization - Sexual, Erotic and Gender Minorities. Wilde has lectured on diverse topics as Love, Evolutionary Sexology, Male Circumcision, and Psychotherapy with Erotic Minority Persons across America and in Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, India and Nepal.

About The Killer Wore Leather: Cormac “Mack” Steel, Mr Global Leather, has been murdered at this year’s BDSM/fetish weekend in New York City. He was found dead on the floor of his Manhattan suite wearing only a pair of frilly, yellow panties. And the suspects who could have killed him number in the thousands. Detective Rebecca Feldblum has worked murder cases before, but none quite so exotic as this one. Suddenly trapped in a world of leather and latex, masters and slaves, pups and trainers, Rebecca has only a weekend to find who killed Mack Steel—and although she doesn’t know it, she’ll discover more about the kink underworld, and herself, than she could ever anticipate. A deliciously tongue-in-cheek murder mystery, The Killer Wore Leather is a strapping invitation for readers to join Rebecca as she explores the private, erotic world of BDSM personalities and leather kinks in search of a murderer.

We have tons of material, research and awareness about the Female G Spot and finally the Male G Spot is getting its spotlight. The Ultimate Guide to Prostate Pleasure - finally a plain speaking, solid sex education book for Prostate Pleasure. As two top Sex Educators, Charlie Glickman PhD and Aislinn Emirzian have put together an easy reading book on a subject that is equal parts prostate health and powerful sexual pleasure. Charlie, Aislinn and I will debunk myths, (You are not secretly gay if you like this type of pleasure!!!) and answer the most commonly asked 'wrong' questions and deliver for women and men the potential of Prostate Pleasure. Men are more aware of their need for a PSA test yet few are aware that Prostate health and pleasure are closely aligned. The Bend Over Boyfriend video series opened a new awareness that straight men enjoy penetrative play with their female partners. I know the sales numbers of hetero strap-on products with just one company were astronomical!!! Charlie can be found at http://www.charlieglickman.com and Aislinn , www.aislinnemirzian.com. Charlie Glickman PhD has been a sexuality educator for over twenty years. He teaches workshops on a wide range of topics, including sex-positivity, sex & shame, gender & masculinity, sexual orientation, communities of erotic affiliation, and many sexual practices such as prostate play, anal sex, pegging, sex toys, BDSM, and polyamory. Charlie is certified as a sexuality educator by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists and he regularly presents at conferences and community events, offers trainings on sexuality for medical professionals, therapists, and clergy. Charlie is available for speaking engagements, in-service trainings, and workshops. You can find more information about him on his website. Aislinn Emirzian is a workshop instructor and sex coach based in San Francisco. She first became a sex educator at Smith College, and later worked with sex positive adult toy stores like Oh My Sensuality Shop in Massachusetts and Good Vibrations in California.

This week's Assignment - 1) List Your Heroes. 2) Explain why you are grateful they are in your life. 3) What are the gifts you are giving forward from them? Last week Amy Byer who handles my social media asked me to consider writing out a list of who my heroes are. That had my brain start sorting and shifting on who is a hero and how does one become someone's hero? As I started my list it surprised me what the themes were. Then today one the English speaking world's top motivational speakers Zig Zigler died and for anyone who is a student of motivation and personal development he is a godfather to the field. It had me look at why did I chose particular people. Lord knows here in California we have ALL kinds of motivational speakers and yet I have found many of them do not walk their talk. I'll talk about those that have supported my career and my life's journey.

My guest this evening is Sandra Daugherty. http://sexnerdsandra.com A passionate sex educator based in Los Angeles, her irreverent humor and quirky love for details has given rise to her moniker, Sex Nerd Sandra. So how does one become a sex nerd and what does a sex nerd do??? We'll cover all those details and how Sandra started in the field. Just as there is a range of sexual appetites and desires there is a growing variety and range of sex educators devoloping to match those varying populations. Sandra is the resident sex blogger on Chris Hardwick’s Nerdist.com. She also works & teaches at The Pleasure Chest in Los Angeles and coaches individuals. She has been seen on, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” and the pilot episode of “The Wanda Sykes Show.” She has also lent a voice to both Playboy and Spice Radio. Often, Sandra is asked, “Why sex education?” to which she shrugs, “I can’t help it.” Since the first time 9-year-old little Sandra told a friend how babies were made (with anatomically-sound understanding), she’s had a lifelong love affair with this adorable aspect of the human condition. Sandra believes human sexuality should be a distinct field of study as it is a distinct & important aspect of our lives. And she, for one is happy, quite happy, to study it.

Sex and Our Imperfect Bodies-Dr. Linda Mona We've all got one....Sex with our imperfect bodies and their disabilities.
Dr.Linda Mona is a cherished colleague in our mutual field of sexual health. Truly she is my go-to person about sexuality and disability. From panels and hands on breakout sessions for severly injured OEF and OIF soldiers to Disability Conferences to "LInda what's new ?' Linda is my go-to girl. So let's jump into what is the definition of a disability: can be a range of things from someone with a bad hip, to chronic arthritis issues, sight impairments, respiratory issues, mobility issues they are all a part of reduced physical function HOWEVER that in no way means that one need to have reduced sexual function. Advocating for the sexual rights and expression of people with disabilities has been the primary focus of Dr. Linda R. Mona’s career. She has worked in a variety of professional settings addressing the need for a deeper understanding of the sexual lives of people with disabilities. Specifically, she has assisted with increasing appropriate educational and clinical services available to people with disabilities seeking knowledge about ways of enhancing their sexual satisfaction. Infusing notions about disability into diversity education and training has also been one of Dr. Mona's career passions. She has worked on challenging traditional medical notions of disability and reframing this life experience from a multicultural lens to further understand the unique experience people with disabilities bring to any work and social context. Much of Dr. Mona’s work has been fueled by her own personal experience living with a disability and her understanding of the positive effects and the societal obstacles faced living with this diverse life experience. In fact, Dr. Mona was selected as one of the 2009 Working Mother's of the Year by Working Mother Magazine---an award not typically granted to a working mother with a disability. She attributes this accomplishment much to the changing views of disability as a rich diverse life experience. Linda R. Mona Ph.D. is a state of California Licensed Clinical Psychologist.

Olga Cohen, Co-Creator Vaginal Renewal Complex, brand name InnerIntimates and Co-Founder Grohen Technologies
Olga Cohen went into full fledged menopause at the age of 43, as a new bride, complete with unpleasant mood swings and extreme hot flashes. She'd tried hormone replacement for ten years, but stopped after the bad press about the health complications associated with hormone replacement. She could not believe how, almost immediately, so many symptoms returned. Worse, she had a terrible new symptom: painful vaginal dryness. She started researching solutions for the problem, and she could not find anything in the market that offered long term results. Luckily, after decades in the cosmetics industry as the owner of a manufacturing company, she had knowledge and access to many natural ingredients. After having a conversation with Dr. Leo Galland, an intergrated medical doctor, she tried using GLA several times a week -- squeezing the oil directly into the vagina. It took about a month and then she started noticing a difference. The results were dramatic: a complete end to the dryness. When she visited her gynecologist, she could not believe it. Her gynecologist could actually see the difference. Olga knew that if she were having these problems, then there must be other women experiencing the same symptoms. And her gynecologist confirmed that acute dryness was one of the most common complaints she heard in her practice. They agreed it was vital to bring this treatment to other women. Since then, Olga has come to realize that painful vaginal dryness is not just caused by menopause, but can be the result of a wide variety of physical conditions. Dryness is also experienced by women who have just given birth, who have had a hysterectomy, or who are suffering from cancer or autoimmune disease. WITH THE HELP OF DR. MIRIAM GREENE AND DR. LEO GALLAND, Grohen Technologies has developed InnerIntimates™ Vaginal Renewal Complex. Vaginal Renewal Complex offers a safe and easy solution for vaginal dryness. As Olga says, " It’s my little secret that is helping countless women look, feel, and live better." Follow Olga on facebook @olgassecret.

The Chemistry Between Us attempts to do what no other book has done: present a grand unified theory of how love, sex, and human social bonding is created in our brains, how that creation drives our behavior, and to place these mechanisms into social, historical and even political contexts. Provocative, opinionated, and written with humor and insight for the lay reader, The Chemistry Between Us offers answers to some of the most tumultuous, joyous, heart-breaking, questions every one of us faces at some time in our lives, and asks us to consider the broader social impact of molecular events in our heads. What makes two people, strangers before meeting for the first time, conclude that they not only would like to, but must, spend the rest of their lives together? What could happen inside the brain of a sober, responsible, married man, a federal judge, to enable him to carry a loaded pistol while buying drugs for his stripper paramour? How could male violence relate to the brain chemistry of love? Why would a young woman, happily committed to her boyfriend, flirt with a jerk? What can the story of a young adoptee tell us about our current culture of parenting? What drives a mother to behave like a mother, and what does that have to do with human romantic love? How are grown men like babies? (Besides the whole whiny-with-the-flu thing.) What can we learn from rats that refuse to have sex unless they're wearing leather? What's the relationship between sexual fetish and love, and drug addiction and love? What is gender? Do brains have a gender? How can some people be attracted to others of the same sex? What causes a person with all the body parts of a man to insist he's a woman? Or a bodily female person to insist she's a man? Readers on the left and the right, people of all faiths, sexual orientations, and relationship status, are bound to find elements of The Chemistry Between Us that they'll object to fiercely, only to read on and find something to applaud. At the very least, readers will be fascinated, and likely to find themselves asking some serious, and some not-so-serious, questions about the world we're making and how that world might be affecting the very nature of human relationships.

My guest Tiffany York, Founder & CEO of Fixsation, did what any great entrepreneur does, she saw a need in the couples' intimacy market and took immediate action to create a solution. She wanted a non-insertive vibe made with all the right component parts that couples could use together during intercourse. Nothing to interrupt the connection, hands free no remotes just the two of them. Voila - The FIXSATION was born. Tiffany's dilemma was to address couple's reaching orgasm together. Not from a performance place but from an enjoyment place. Busy parents and working couples have their regular love making eclipsed by 'duties'. The Fixsation is a 1/2 inch thick ovoid disc shaped vibe, take your ring and index finger and make a slightly open circle, its silky smooth surface has ridges in just the right spots. Held in place by a very hot lace strap panty all you need to decide is which of the 5 vibe settings you prefer and the panty size. Charging is a user friendly UBS port. You and your partner can fixate on the sensation with him on top, you on top or any position that brings you together. The only limit to the fun factor is your imagination. One FixSation user swears by having him sitting on a chair and she straddles him facing and in 3-5 minutes they are both very happily taken care of.

Her show OFF THE RECORD last week about long term affairs had me reach out to host Judy Schriener. I hear about affairs and fooling around every day and sometimes they surface in a relationship and sometimes they don't. As an award winning business journalist, ever curious about how people think, she did research on why men cheat. She found that the reason men cheat isn't always a simple 1-2-3 formula of opportunity. She found there are as many reasons as there are individuals. eg) "I'm entitled to it I make all the money." So are there benefits to affairs? Does one fling lead to another? Do partners leave their relationships and marriages? We'll discuss female and male cheating, same thing or different? Does who makes the money impact cheating..I think so. Are there winners? Ashley Madison as a cultural touch stone. Judy's anecdotes will both entertain and educate you on the business world affair.

The Olympics epitomizes excellence in ideals in attitudes and in bodies. My guest Michele Cameron was Gold Medalist 1988 Seoul Synchronized Pairs and originally I wanted an insider's view on "So how much sex does go on at the Olympic Village?" Michelle's comment she didn't know she swam on the last day so was so focused she never even saw other athletes. Then I realized I wanted Michelle to share her story and how that Olympic passion and burn has fueled and been transformed into the drive behind creating her company Gold Medal Inspirations and her children's foundation, "A Gift of Love." We'll talk about the ups and downs and how the darkest often is just before a break through. Married to fellow Olympian Al Coulter and mom of four terrific children. www.goldmedalinspirations.com

The cultural impact of this trilogy has just started to surface. Movie, product lines, music CDs. In essence it is a love story, Harlequin Romance meets kinky sex. Honestly that doesn't give you the range of nuanced and in depth material EL James has packed into her books. I mean let's be serious I know the world of sexuality and I write books. This was a LOL highly enjoyable read for me, and one I almost didn't do. I thought 'Oh I can avoid reading it, nope couldn't happen. I have two projects and I need to KNOW what's in these books. Devotees expect it. What vanilla can learn from kink. What the BDSM world really is like. What is effective about how Ana and Christian communicate, their range of toys, the eroticism of power exchange play. The sub has all the power. Next week I'll go into depth about the positions and talk with Emily Prior of the Center for Positive Sexuality about the kink, BDSM world. Why people are captivated by it.

Betsy Crane Ph.D, Widener University - Education and Career training in the field of Sexuality Education and Research
So How Bright is Your Future in Sex? Betsy Crane Ph.D., Professor and former Director of Human Sexuality Graduate Program at Widener University, PA will discuss the explosive growth of people seeking graduate degrees in the field of sexuality. One of only two nationally accredited institutions, in the last five years the Widener Program has grown from 30 students to 100 entering in fall of 2012 making a student body of 200+ students. Who are these students and what are their career paths? What are they focused on and what knew bodies of research are they creating? What drives them to pursue this field.
