Stand-up Comedians Corinne Fisher and Krystyna Hutchinson are the hosts of the popular podcast "Guys We F****d." This podcast is most known for changing the way society thinks about female sexuality through a merging of humor and expansion. This week I am so delighted to have these two ladies on to lead us through their experience hosting a podcast with such controversial topics, and their own personal journeys of self discovery, boundary setting, and challenging the stigmas related to female sexuality. Buckle in for a no bullsh*t, straight to the truth episode.
All aboard the shame train! Join my dear friend Jules Webber and I on a special extended episode this week all about shame. We dive right into the parental, societal and religious origins for feelings of shame. Jules bravely shares her own experiences of shame at every age of her life, ranging from her early childhood memories of suppressing her true self, to later pledging abstinence with a religious authority, to her first sexual experience and the intense shame around sex as a woman, then to her recent divorce after a 10 year marriage. There are tears, laughter and endless insights about the universal human experience of shame, and our need for connection and belongingness with our community and most importantly within ourselves. Whatever your religious beliefs might be, this episode is a must-hear.
Jamie Elizabeth Thompson is a holistic intimacy and sex specialist and we had the most amazing conversation about awakening our sexual selves. Sex and sexuality is such a difficult topic for so many people. Whether it be via our culture, familial upbringing, or religious conditioning, there is still so much shame wrapped up in our sexual selves. Jamie and I discuss how we can move through our conditioning and use our vulnerability to empower and explore our sexual selves. Jamie brings so much understanding and knowledge on the power of the erotic to this episode and I’m so excited to bring you this important conversation, whatever your sexuality, relationship type or gender this episode is for you.
I am so excited to introduce an author whose work has impacted my work so significantly. Dr. Christopher Ryan wrote the epic book ‘Sex at Dawn’ in 2010, and he has gone on to continue researching and writing on human evolution. We discuss it all - human evolution, sex and connection, modernity, the agricultural revolution and how it shifted our sexual behaviour, the internet revolution today, and what all of it means for our lives and our happiness. His work is truly fascinating and I am so honoured that he has shared this work with us today.
This week I was over the moon to be speaking with my dear friend Kelsey Grant. Kelsey is an absolute goddess on all things relationships, intimacy, and sex! We got really real on intimacy in every way, how sex relates to connection and visa versa. We got into the juiciest parts of relationship and shared our own pasts on the highest highs and lowest lows - commitment, patterns, past hurts, cheating, breaking up, growing and knowing ourselves.
Mark is one of the best, he will force you to look into yourself and see yourself in a way that can only make you better. Truly wonderful. Thanks Mark!!!!

I find myself returning to this podcast again and again. As life has carried me through quite the journey the last few years, I find peace and understanding in the topics Mark covers and the way he approaches them. Often times I am moved to tears because I relate so deeply, or find myself simply feeling seen and understood. There is so much to learn here by simply listening.
