In this episode, we demystify sex with past guests Emily Morse, Dr. Kate Balestrieri, and Shan Boodram. Sex is an important part of our daily lives, and how we approach it greatly affects our relationship and connection to our partners and selves. 

Krista and Lindsey open the conversation to a multitude of topics: receiving pleasure, expectations associated with partnerships, being performative in the bedroom, and dissociation. This collection of discussions demystifies the often vulnerable, guilty feelings affiliated with sexual experiences. 

Get ready for this new assemblage of wonderful conversations that expand the heart and mind. Let’s talk about sex!

“The majority of people do not have healthy conversations around sex until there’s a problem.” – Emily Morse on Almost 30 Podcast

  • Acknowledging conversations around sex

  • Expectations + desires
  • Nervous system + pleasure
  • Being performative during sex
