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 delighted to share my latest podcast interview that I released recently with Megan Stubbs, Ed.D. Among her many impressive credentials, Megan recently published a fascinating book, “Playing Without a Partner: A Singles’ Guide to Sex, Dating, and Happiness”. It was truly an honor to get to know this amazing human being, and have a fascinating and insightful conversation. I have definitely heard many times – even in the year 2021 – that “sex is a taboo topic” and not to be spoken about. I love how Megan has made it her life’s mission to create safe spaces and give others permission to get curious about and – indeed talk about – sex and all of its beauty, nuances, and sheer joy of engaging with and sharing our bodies if we choose to. Megan! I am so delighted that we were able to connect! Your work is a treasure trove of awesome and so needed in this world. I cheer you on, every step of the way!
Here is her bio:
Megan Stubbs, Ed.D. is a sexologist, relationships expert, and body image specialist. With her degrees in biology and human sexuality, she is able to combine two of her favorite things, science and sex, into a cohesive platform to impact her audience. She is mindful of inclusion and brings a sensitivity to ethnic diversity rooted in her own complex heritage. She believes that sex should be fun and uses her lighthearted, intelligent, and humorous delivery to make it happen.
Some topics we discuss in this fun, informative, and entertaining interview:
- When her thirst for knowledge and interest in sex and bodies first began.
- How an article in Cosmo inspired her to become a sexologist.
- Why her friends have said, “You’re a strange duck, Megan”.
- The challenges she faced in moving back to Michigan after grad school.
- What happened when she listed her career as a sexologist on her dating app profile.
- Why she believes that sex is still taboo in our culture.
- How she combined her personal experience and professional knowledge to write her book.
- The pros of being single and why it should be celebrated.
- Tune in to listen to this fantastic and fascinating podcast episode!
