Missionary gets a bad rap. I've seen it called the “comfy sweater” of sex – and can we talk about the name? Not sexy. Almost…anti-sexy. But despite its label, I don't think that's why missionary is considered vanilla or boring. It's simply the default position, the one a lot of us fall into automatically – making it easier for us to tune out, phone it in, and miss out on any potential eroticism. So on today's episode, we're going to make missionary more exploratory, as I address some of your common complaints. Such as: how do we make it more exciting? I'll tell you all the reasons I love missionary, and give you technique tips to make it more surprising and fun. Next, vulva owners: are you having a hard time reaching orgasm in missionary? Of course you are: it's not the prime position for clitoral stimulation, so I'll offer position hacks that make it more pleasurable. Finally, is it possible to be kinky during missionary? Oh yeah: from bondage to dirty talk, we can leverage all that eye contact to turn it into the hot experience you crave.

So listen: is sex addiction real? We've all heard stories of infidelity followed by explanations of sex addiction as the reason for the behavior. But the truth is, just because someone cheats doesn't mean they're a sex addict. According to therapist Marnie Breecker from the Center for Relational Healing, sex addiction is indeed real: it's an intimacy disorder with both emotional and physiological symptoms. On this best of show, Marnie and I talk about the common and compulsive behaviors of sex addiction, the deep human need for love and connection, affordable treatment options, love addiction, a how-to on IMAGO therapy (a great tool for communication) and healing steps for couples.

Did you know that masturbation helps you sleep better? Tones your pelvic floor? And – surprise – boosts your immunity? But let's be honest: these aren't exactly the main reasons people masturbate. You masturbate because it's pleasurable, but as the OG form of self-care, masturbation delivers all kinds of benefits, physically and psychologically. That's why today's show kicks off a two-part masturbation series, and later in the month, we'll look at how masturbation benefits a partnership. On today's episode however, it's all about YOU: common masturbation fantasies, how to mix up a stale masturbation routine, how to make your solo sex more erotic, and how to practice mindful masturbation. Plus, I take your questions! Can a vibrator desensitize your clitoris? All this and more on Part 1 of our Masturbation Pro Tips Series.

But as my guest Dana Myers explains, that's nonsense – and as a mom, she can prove it.Dana is the founder of sex and beauty brand Booty Parlor, but she's also a wife and mother to two children.

If I've said it once, I've said it a million times: communication is a lubrication. But today I've got the receipts: previous callers who took my communication advice called back, to give us a status report!On today's best of show, I'm letting you listen in on my callers' sex lives after they took the brave but vulnerable step of talking to their partners. We've got a longtime married couple, with a husband who wants more kink in bed; a success story of treating vaginal pain; a newlywed who brought BACK the spark with his man after incorporating role play, and a mom who never had any sex guidance growing up…and is now doing things radically different with her teen daughter.

When it comes to sex, a lot of us have a movie in our head about the way it “should” go down. I should look a certain way. They should kiss me a certain way. We should have epic orgasms. In other words, picture perfect...But here's the real real: you're going to orgasm way easier – and more intensely – if you can get out of your head, and into your body. So on today's show, I'm helping you have fully embodied sex using your five senses. Together we can remove the mental blocks from orgasm.

To create our hottest, most fulfilling sex life, there's one critical thing we need – and no, it's not flavored lube. We need boundaries, and the ability to express them to others.But what is a “boundary,” exactly? As a buzzword and an emerging concept, boundaries can improve every relationship, sexual or otherwise. So on today's best-of show, sex therapist, author and my dear friend Dr. Jennifer Freed and I help you figure out what your boundaries are, how to set them with others (and follow through), and how to NOT let people steamroll over your values…especially when you're a people pleaser.

Breakups completely, fundamentally suck – full stop. Especially if you're still connected to the person: you still live together, you share friends, or…you can't stop fantasizing about them sexually. And that's because breakups function exactly like withdrawal: this other person was a drug of sorts, and now, you can't get your hit. But breakups also teach us a lot about ourselves, especially if that person was annoyingly awesome in bed. So in this episode, we're looking at the psychology of breakups, empowering ways to cope and move on, and most importantly, how to keep nurturing your sexuality while you heal. Plus, I take your questions! How to move on from a hookup partner who's not ready for a relationship, what it means when you're sexting with an ex, how to do the friendship custody battle after a breakup, and how to break up when you know it's the right thing to do…but you're terrified to do it.

When you keep running into the same relationship (or sex) problems over and over again, what's the one common denominator? Brace yourself…because it's you. You're the thing that carries over from partnership to partnership, which is why Gary Bishop, author of the crazy bestseller “Unfu*k Yourself” decided to write a new book – a tough love spin on self-help. It's called “Love Unfu*ked: Getting Your Relationship Sh!t Together,” and I invited him to chat with me about it.In this interview, Gary and I talk about how to become aware of our destructive relationship habits, and concrete ways to manage them. He tells me the one simple change he made with his current partner that transformed their relationship, and we go deep on feeling threatened: the fight or flight response that inhibits emotional intimacy, not to mention our best sex. But we also talk about the hopeful side of radical self-awareness, and the opportunity in front of us, when we step outside of ourselves, look at our patterns, and change them – to create room for the pleasurable connections we all want.

How do you kickstart sexual arousal? Would you believe me if I told you that sometimes, the best ways to get turned on have nothing to do with sex itself? When you take the focus off the bedroom, and turn your focus toward adventure – the kind that gets your heart-pumping, your adrenaline going, and your anticipation building – a cool thing happens in your brain. You're excited, and that excitement spills over from the activity into…sex. Pretty nifty, right?So on today's show, we're going to trust, touch, and titillate our way towards arousal, with bonding hacks you can use on your next date whether it is with a long term partner or someone new. Plus, I take your questions! Ways to feel confident and sexual again after a breakup, how to have kinky sex with a partner who says they aren't interested, how to decide if you should wait to develop a relationship with a super busy person or cut em' loose, how to take sexy pictures with each other, and how to communicate your needs efficiently outside the bedroom so that you can reignate the spark when you're back inside.Show Notes:Serena Kerrigan's Let's Fucking DateEsther Perel's Where Should We Begin?

As much as we'd like sex to be seamlessly hot all the time, sometimes…it gets a little awkward. Too much teeth during a blowjob. An erection that won't last. Someone farts! It happens - and when it does, it can seriously derail the mood.But does it have to? I'm of the opinion that if we know how to respond during moments like these – with compassion, collaboration, and sometimes a sense of humor – an erotic moment doesn't have to come to an abrupt halt. So on today's show, I'm taking the point of view of someone who didn't “do” the awkward thing, they witnessed it. And by the end, you'll know how to hold space, how to handle situations like these, and not shame the person on the other side – so you can keep the party going, and continue having fantastic sex.

When you hear the phrase “self-care,” what comes to mind? Bubble baths? Booking a massage? Those things are all lovely (I'd argue essential), but I've got one more thing to add to your self-care routine, and I'm going to make a case for it: solo sex, AKA masturbation. If you're a regular listener to this show, you know how much of a solo sex advocate I am. But we're going to go a little deeper into this topic, because there's still a lot of shame associated with masturbation: fear of getting caught, embarrassment about our noises and facial expressions, confusion around toys and which ones are best.

Here in the 21st century, we're fascinated by something that was invented in the 7th century: tantra, and more specifically, tantric sex. But it's also one of the most misunderstood practices around, starting with: it's not just about sex! Tantra is an entire world of spirituality, intimacy, breathwork and presence, which is precisely why I have Barbara Carellas, founder of Urban Tantra, on the show with me today. A pioneer in the world of tantric healing practices, Barbara gives us the real deal on these sacred techniques – and shows us how we can use them in the modern world, for full body pleasure, higher states of consciousness, and a radically deeper connection with your partner. Plus, I take your questions! How do you stay in the present moment during sex, and not disassociate while it's happening – or, get so nervous that you block all the pleasure? I've got some thoughts on that.For More Information on Barbara:Website | Instagram | Twitter | Youtube | FacebookShow Notes:Emily's Shop Page See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
When it comes to sex in longterm relationships, why do they start hot, then go lukewarm? Why does our eroticism go dormant, once the newness of a relationship wears off? And what are some specific strategies for bringing back the heat we desperately long for? It's part 2 in our Best Of special on taking your sex life from stale to sexy, and I can't wait to let you listen in on my conversations with John Wineland and Esther Perel, and a bit of wisdom from Tom Bilyeu.John is a relationship coach specializing in polarity and embodiment, and for this show, I've selected his most potent advice on hot sex. According to John, getting in touch with our masculine and feminine energies – regardless of gender – has the power to transform the way we show up in bed. Next, I talk to Esther Perel, well recognized couples therapist, author and fellow podcaster, who explains how a couple's sex life loses its passion. Our partners become reliable and safe, which is great for a relationship, but according to Esther…not always great for sex. So how do we revive the mystery, the risk, and a sense of adventure with our partners? Listen for the sensual techniques she uses to help couples get back in touch with their hungry side. Finally, Impact Theory's Tom Bilyeu dishes on desire – and why attraction for other people is not death for a relationship.

It's the #1 question I get as a sex educator: “our sex life is stale, how do we make it hot again?” For long-term couples, this issue is so common it's almost a cliche. “Once you're married, say goodbye to your sex life! Haha!” Except, it's not funny, right? It's actually pretty painful, once the new relationship energy wears off, and we no longer have that magical chemical cocktail running through our veins. That's why I am so pleased to be doing a two-part, Best Of special on this precise topic, kicking things off with sex educator Ian Kerner, author of the iconic book “She Comes First” and his latest, “So Tell Me About the Last Time You Had Sex?” I'm also sharing advice from Drs. John and Julie Gottman of the Gottman Institute, who have led some of the most comprehensive studies on successful couples, and the key ingredients of their success. (Which includes a great sex life, of course.) I'm pulling out the best-of-the-best of their advice and techniques, so you can try them yourself, and create your own “arousal runway” to bring excitement back into your relationship and the bedroom.

Squirting during sex: how, exactly, does it happen? Which body part controls it? And what the hell is it made out of? For vulva owners, squirting is a thing of mystery - but it doesn't need to be. In this special Best Of episode, I'm giving you my tips and firsthand experience with squirting as well as highlights of my conversation with sex educator Deborah Sundahl, who teaches us exactly how to squirt -- and I mean, step by step.For example: did you know, vulva owners, that you have a prostate? That's the g-spot, despite headlines you see every few months questioning its very existence. Also: did you know that clitoral orgasms and g-spot orgasms are two different things? Finally, with time and practice, did you know that EVERY vulva owner can squirt? It's not magic -- it's anatomy! Plus, I take your questions on squirting, from how to start, best positions to do it, and how to communicate to your partner what you want them to do.

We've all heard of red flags in relationships, but let's be honest: sometimes, they can be terribly hard to spot. Especially when you really want a relationship to work, or, if the other person is super hot. (Am I right?) That's why I'm bringing you a special episode today, focused on all things red flags -- and green flags -- with my two favorite voices on the matter, psychologist and author Dr. Ramani, and YouTube's (and probably the world's) favorite dating coach, Matthew Hussey. Dr. Ramani and I take a deep dive on narcissism, and talk through things like love bombing, devaluation, and the different types of narcissists out there -- as well as the personality types who tend to fall for them. And if you're thinking, “I wouldn't possibly fall for that nonsense,” think again! These folks are master manipulators, and at their core, deeply insecure. Next, Matthew Hussey walks us through our own less-than-ideal tendencies, such as: why we keep going for aloof and unavailable people, how we repeat painful patterns from our childhood, and how we ignore someone's inconvenient truth. But Matthew also tells us what to look for when we're dating someone new, such as curiosity, equal investment, and consistency with words and actions. If you're dating right now, listen to this episode -- twice.

Anything worth having takes time, whether that's a better sex life, a deeper relationship, or an awesome relationship with your body. But staying consistent is hard: we get bored, we get rebellious, we want to cut corners. We're human, after all! That's why, if we want to meet goals - ANY goal - we have to create rituals. And the key to sticking with them? Identifying your “why.”So on today's Best Of show, I'm talking to Max Lugavere, host of The Genius Life podcast, and Jennifer Cohen, host of Habits and Hustle, to give us the lowdown on sexy self improvement. Max gives me the scoop on food addiction (and its similarities to porn addiction), how daily sunlight improves our health, and how processed food short circuits our satiety signals. Jennifer tells me the three habits successful people all have in common, how to get your partner on-board for working out, and the correlation between exercise and sex drive. Get out your grocery lists and gratitude journals, because after this episode, you'll be totally inspired to start small habits for big self-growth.

Where do men get their earliest messages about sex and intimacy? Why do they talk about banging / pounding / hitting it (like they're at a construction site), and how does this conditioning affect your sex life – no matter your gender? Peggy Ornstein is the author of several iconic books on teens and sex, but on today's fan favorite episode, she joins me to talk about Boys & Sex: a fascinating account of young men as they navigate hookups, porn and relationships, as told by the boys she interviewed. In this episode, you'll learn how even in the shadow of #MeToo, boys are still confused about having mutually fulfilling sex, while still being a “man.” Listen - when it comes to masculinity, Peggy is an expert. She explains why she doesn't love the term “toxic masculinity.” She recognizes that men get a confusing message: be dominant, but don't be too aggressive. Reporting from the front lines of bro culture, Peggy reveals the sex conundrum that men so often find themselves in, and ways we can all evolve to have relationships that are more interesting, more erotic, and more emotionally intelligent.

To get our needs met, we first have to be able to articulate our needs – and be brave enough to share them out loud. But it's easier said than done! We get worried about what the other person will say, or we don't have the words to express what we want, so we bury those longings and wait for a better time. Then before we know it, years have passed, and that better time never arrived. We're sexually frustrated and resentful, because we never had the sex talk that was crucial to our happiness…until now. On this show, we're leaning into discomfort, so we can come out on the other side sexually satisfied. In other words: we're learning how to have a sex talk! Even when it's just with yourself. How do you cultivate positive self-talk, when everyone around you affirms your hotness - but your brain just doesn't buy it? Or how about when one of you wants to have sex every day, and the other doesn't: how do you communicate your way through mismatched desires? Finally, let's get into improving the quality of your sex life with a partner: when the sex itself has become rote, routine, or just plain boring, how do you revive it? The first step is an open conversation, and on this episode, I'm giving you scripts and tools so you can get over those fears, and get into mutually satisfying pleasure.

“Women cheat for emotional connection, men cheat for sex.” “Men are horn dogs, women are frigid.” Heard any of this before? Did you know these are factually untrue? In this fan favorite episode, cultural anthropologist and bestselling author Wednesday Martin joins me to talk about female sexuality research findings, now that more females are entering the field of sex research. Believe me when I say: her revelations will change your life.Wednesday's book Untrue: Why Nearly Everything We Believe About Women, Lust, and Infidelity is Wrong and How the New Science Can Set Us Free was a major conversation starter. Today, we're more open to alternative relationship models, and a huge part of that is because of Wednesday. In this conversation, she debunks the lies we've been told for decades about female sexuality, including: men just want to spread their seed, while women want to protect their precious eggs. Wrong! Turns out, monogamy is pretty rough on female desire. How about this one: women cheat because they crave emotional care. Nope! Sometimes, women just want sex with someone new. Finally, how did these lies get started in the first place? Wednesday walks us through the faulty science that got us here, and how accurate measures of female desire are radically changing the way we understand sex – for all genders.

Welcome to the wide world of alternative relationship models. Opening up, threesomes, and swinging are increasingly becoming more mainstream, so naturally, we've got questions. Some of us do better with monogamy, but some of us thrive with a little variety - and no matter where we land on the spectrum of relationships and sex, we can always gain vocabulary to explore our desires, and act on our pleasure.So on today's show, I take your questions on open relationships and we get into it. First, we tackle open relationships when we're already partnered. How do you establish the ground rules? What do you do when your partner has a date but you don't, and you feel that jealousy coming on? Next, threesomes and swinging: how do you practice safe sex in a group sex situation? Finally: when you're the third party, what's the best way to talk to the partner of your partner? In this case, and truly all others, the key is becoming a grade A communicator – because if there's one thing you can count on in an alternative relationship, it's lots and lots of talking.

You may think of her as divorce attorney to the stars, and Laura Wasser is certainly that. But Laura is also a sharp thinker on marriage and communication, and is here to tell us what every couple needs to know before saying "I do." She says that couples who have the prenup conversation are actually more likely to stay together than those who don't, and that money is an even bigger conversational taboo than sex. She also tells us what it's like repping actor clients vs. musician clients, why we're seeing a celebrity-led trend of "gentle separations," and how social media has changed the game for divorce cases.Plus, I take your divorce questions! When is it time to say "I don't," and get the hell out? Or how about if you're single, and have a tendency to hook up with older, separated men -- are they just your type? Or...are there some deeper conversations you need to be having, with them, and with yourself? Let's talk dating as a divorcee: when is it OK to tell the kids you've met someone new? And finally, after being married for so long, how do you tell the difference between love and lust, when you're back on the scene? All this and more, on today's divorce show.

In order to feel turned on, we first have to feel safe. And that's the funny thing about trust: once it's broken, it has a way of quietly shutting us down, so that our relationships aren't as deep, our curiosity is blocked, and even our self-sex takes a hit. But there IS hope: trust can be healed. Neuroplasticity is a beautiful thing, and if we compassionately work on ourselves (possibly with a partner), we feel worlds better - more secure, and definitely more sexy.So on today's Ask Emily show, I take some of my favorite calls on trust, and how to repair it. What happens if your spouse cheated on you, to the point where sex feels sorta gross now? Or how about if you were the cheater, and your sex life just isn't the same? (Two words: couples therapy.) How about this one: you're in a partnership, and things are basically fine - but the spark has completely worn off, and you don't know how to talk about it? Or, what if you tell a new partner you love them, they don't reciprocate, and THEN the sex takes a nosedive? In both cases, I've got answers. Finally, when you're “too picky” of a dater, is it really because they're all duds? Or, are there some underlying trust issues there, that are keeping your sexuality safe, cool, and totally dormant? The bottom line is this: when we feel free, we feel sexy. And on today's episode, we're helping you radically reclaim your erotic freedom.Show Notes:Ian Kerner's book - So Tell Me About The Last Time You Had Sex.

So you've got a sex fantasy...and you're ready for it to become reality. That's great! But let me be the first to tell you: this process is part art, part science. The art? That's your erotic self. Closing your eyes, imagining hot -- possibly taboo -- scenarios, and taking the time to discover what turns you on. But the science? That's where we have to get tactical and think with our heads -- as well as our loins.On today's Ask Emily show, I take your calls on fantasy and give you practical advice on how to fulfill them. Let's say your partner has been hinting at a cuckold scenario: how do you go about finding a “third,” and how do you manage expectations for all involved? We get into it. What about play parties: how do you ensure a consensual environment, making sure everyone feels safe in the context of an orgy? I've got thoughts! And finally, what if you don't have any fantasies, but you want some? Is there a way to get more creative? Yeahhh there is. Right this way for some sexy self-discovery.Show Notes:FetLifeFeeld #Open Ok Cupid Yea No Maybe ListBook: Coming Together by Celeste And Danielle See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
I like to think of Lewis Howes and Lisa Bilyeuas as leaders in the self-awareness world, especially when it comes to relationships. Both Lewis and Lisa are incredibly successful: she went from housewife to cofounder of a billion-dollar business, he went from picked last for dodgeball to pro athlete, New York Times bestselling author and uber successful podcaster. But here's the thing: success is empty if you don't learn to like yourself, and both are intimately familiar with that truth. On today's Best Of episode, I'm pairing these two voices to bring you the most powerful advice on self-love and fulfilling relationships. We hear from Lisa, who tells the story of radically changing her role in her relationship, and Lewis, who tells the story of radically hustling for respect (and getting it) -- only to realize he needed to learn how to respect himself. In this show, you'll learn how to ask your partner for exactly what you need, how to break the habit of “testing” partners, how to identify the masks you wear for the world, and why sex transforms after you've taken the time to understand who you are - and love yourself, no hustle required.
