Cheers Sexy People!
Hello, Loving Without Boundaries (LWB) community! My heart goes out to you during these challenging times. I hope you are doing your best to keep safe. Sharing inspirational stories of hope, inclusion, and healthy lifestyles are more important than ever. If you are looking for ways to connect with loved ones you are separated from, check out this blog post that I shared recently. On to another inspiring story…
I am so excited to share my latest podcast interview that I released recently with the amazing and highly intelligent and well-spoken Dr. Alison Ash. I am so delighted that she reached out as a potential guest for our show, as she has such great information to share with our amazing community. Alison and I spent a lot of time delving deep into the world of fantasy and how beneficial fantasies can be to your self exploration as well as your sexual development. As an educator and coach, Alison teaches classes on this topic and is presently offering a workshop titled, Free Your Fantasies. However, she is particularly excited about her upcoming 10-week course, Sexual and Emotional Intimacy Skills, which she originally created for Stanford University, but is now making available to the public. Ally! Wow am I so glad that you reached out to me! I LOVED diving into the deep end of the pool with you on the topic of fantasies, sex, as well as sex positivity! Thanks for all that you do for the community and the world with your amazing and much-needed work!
Here is her bio:
Dr. Alison Ash is a trauma-informed sex and intimacy coach and educator, lecturer at Stanford University, author, and founder of TurnON.love. As a sociologist with a PhD from Stanford, Dr. Ash has a comprehensive understanding of the complex societal challenges that often lead to unsatisfying and disempowering sexual experiences. Dr. Ash designs workshops, courses, and retreats and offers individuals and couples coaching to give others the tools to discover their desires and confidently pursue them. She invites you to TurnON pleasure, intimacy and love at www.TurnON.love
Some topics we discuss in this fun, informative, and entertaining interview:
- The importance of, and difficulty in, learning intimacy as a skill.
- How sexual trauma early on in her life influenced her decision to pursue academic study in human sexuality.
- Why humans fantasize and what are some of the most common categories of fantasy.
- The connection between fantasy and pornography and erotica.
- How to share your sexual fantasies with your partner(s).
- Tune in to listen to this fantastic podcast episode!
