Whitney Miller: Having Great Sex & How to Map Your Vulva
1 hr 2 min

Do you wonder how your sex life can improve our relationships– with others and with yourself–either in a monogamous, a polyamory, or an open relationship?

In this conversation with Whitney Miller, we talk about the dynamics of monogamous vs. polyamory relationship, we go deep into details of sexuality within relationships and we discuss a very interesting pleasure exploration technique of the vulva: the vulva mapping.

In her past polyamory experience, she shares what she learned about herself to be able to thrive in it, namely understand why she got jealous, why she got sad, and how she was able to cultivate meaningful relationships with women by having to constantly have vulnerable conversations which allowed her to truly love the other women. 

Often, relationships help us to open up a part of ourselves that needs to be exposed in order to heal and to know ourselves better: our thought processes, our patterns, and how we respond to challenges. Whitney tells us how deeply transformative this process was in her open relationship with Audrey Marcus and how that forced her to profoundly dive into herself.

She shares with us intimate details of her preferences with candid honesty, so if you are dating or looking to date women this could be a key to understanding what might arouse and please a woman before and during sex. And it’s not at all just about sex: asking the other person meaningful questions is likely to be a skill that enables them to open up. Whitney also tells us what are her own favourites questions, what she finds attractive in a man, and how playfulness is so important.

Whitney is a love, sex, and relationship coach: an expert in the realm of union between partners and sexuality. Former Miss United States and sports anchor Whitney Miller has found her true calling helping individuals and couples. Her experiential journey to self-mastery started 5 years ago with her well-publicized open relationship with her fiancé, Aubrey Marcus. Whitney has since joined forces with some of the leading scientists and researchers in the field, and now hosts talks and workshops around the world. 

What we discuss:

[00:04:47] Letting go of how Whitney thought life should be has been making her more open to change.

[00:05:50] Where Whitney's need for protecting herself comes from.

[00:07:09] What permitted the sensation of safety to let people in Whitney's life.

[00:08:34] Why the relationship with Aubrey was fundamental to Whitney's self-discovery.

[00:09:09] How we receive superpowers and faults from our parents and our relationships.

[00:10:42] Why Whitney thinks there is usefulness in suppressing emotions.

[00:11:48] Whitney's latest Ayuashca experience showed her to go over one fear in particular.

[00:14:39] Making it through life instead of living life: "If you let out what is within you, it will heal you. If you hold it in, it will destroy you".

[00:15:57] Qualities in a man that are attractive to Whitney.

[00:17:18] What was attractive in Aubry from Whitney's perspective.

[00:19:06] Why Whitney and Aubrey were sincere about the constraints of their polyamorous relationship.

[00:20:31] What Whitney feel she learned from her experience in a polyamorous relationship

[00:21:39] Is polyamory sustainable and does it have longevity?

[00:24:27] Whitney's present terms of relationship preferences.

[00:29:38] How does a man show he holds the qualities of stability and safety?

[00:32:11] Is it possible to hold a certainty about the relationship course?

[00:33:21] What is the process of stepping back and re-access in a relationship?

[00:35:59] Whitney's experience in relationships in which one partner goes through change and the other isn't

[00:38:07] What good sex means for Whitney.

[00:46:14] How does a woman want a vulva massage?

[00:46:55] What is vulva mapping and how to do it.

[00:48:25] Butt play and anal sex.

[00:51:45] What is the perfect set up for sex?

[00:54:12] How does Aaron creates contact?

[00:56:01] How to ask meaningful questions about the other person.

I first got to talk to Jim Poole about NuCalm back in episode 265, when we chatted all about how stress affects the body, why the stress epidemic is getting worse, and how NuCalm helps combat stress like nothing else I’ve ever used. And I wanted to have Jim back on the show because being a human being in 2020 has been stressful, and we could all use some help calming down and recovering in 2021. So, if you’re struggling to meditate and relax, this is the episode for you. Or if you’re just into tech, because this device is ridiculously cool. NuCalm is the world's first and only patented technology clinically proven to lower stress and improve sleep quality without drugs or side effects. Using biochemistry and physics, NuCalm flips the switch on stress with a safe, easy-to-use, predictable, powerful, and enjoyable experience. The cutting edge neuroscience platform of NuCalm took over 20 years of invention by acclaimed neuroscientist, naturopath, quantum physicist, Dr. Blake Holloway. We get into the mechanism of action that makes NuCalm work and the hard science that backs its efficacy. This has become a vital part of my daily routine, my daily reboot, and I can’t wait for more people to try this now that the business model is even more accessible.

Are you aware of the dangers of EMF exposure in your home, but have no idea where to start when it comes to finding, and fixing them? Are you concerned about your exposure to the current 3G, 4G, and 5G wireless networks now activated in most major cities? Have you attempted to test the levels yourself using EMF meters you found online and ended up confused and frustrated? EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies) are one of the most toxic elements in our living and work environments. Due to the technical nature of accurately testing for them—and the training required to do so properly—many of us resign ourselves to the fact that we just have to accept them and the consequences they bring in order to use the modern technology we depend on. But you don’t have to. In this seven-part video documentary series, you will follow world-renowned building biologist Brian Hoyer as he tests an entire home, room by room, to determine the source and level of every known type of EMF. By the end of this series, you will not only be thoroughly educated on the various types and sources of EMF commonly found in homes but also of the many mitigation tools and techniques available thanks to the cutting-edge technologies.

TMHS 445: What Is Stress And Fear Doing To Our Immune Systems? With Dr. Bruce Lipton
At this time in human history, we’re more stressed than ever. We know that chronic stress leads to a myriad of health problems, including a lowered immune system and increased susceptibility to infections. So how do we break out of this negative cycle and create real change that will lead to longer, healthier lives? It starts with taking control over our minds.

There’s no one better suited to speak on the topic of the mind-body connection than Dr. Bruce Lipton. Dr. Lipton is a stem cell biologist, bestselling author, and an internationally recognized thought leader. On today’s show, he’s sharing the powerful science behind how your beliefs inform the expression of your genetics, how to optimize your immune function, and the pertinent steps you need to take in order to change your health outcomes. Enjoy! In this episode you’ll discover: * The shocking amount of money that is wasted in our healthcare system. * What epigenetics is. * The definition of genetic determinism, and how it works. * How changing your beliefs can actually alter your genetics. * The role that your nervous system plays in genetic expression. * What percentage of disease is controlled by genes. * How stress interferes with the immune system. * Three fundamental things that shift when the body is under stress. * What percentage of Americans have chronic diseases. * How the human body creates immunity. * Four behaviors you need to practice to protect your immune system. * Which two vitamins you should take daily. * The role of the tonsils (and why babies put everything in their mouths). * A link between quantum physics and epigenetics.

Ben Greenfield Fitness: Diet, Fat Loss and Performance
Weight Lifting Is a Waste of Time (So Is Cardio & There’s a Better Way to Have The Body You Want).       Perhaps you've been lifting weights for a few years. But do you even look like you work out? Are you spending disproportionate amounts of hours exercising wasting your time? Many fitness "experts" defend weights and cardio like they are infallible, but where are the results? Why does almost nobody look even marginally athletic?         It's been quite some time since I interviewed Dr. John Jaquish in the episode .     But he has just published a brand new book entitled       In it, he and and his guest co-author Henry Alkire tackle the questions above as they explore the science that supports the argument that traditional weight lifting is a "waste of time" and lay out a superior strength training approach that has been seen to put 20 pounds of muscle on drug-free, experienced lifters (i.e., not beginners) in six months. Fitness may be the most failed human endeavor, and you are about to see how exercise science has missed some obvious principles that when enacted will turn you into the superhuman you always wanted to be. John Jaquish, PhD. has spent years researching and developing improved approaches to health.       He is the inventor of the most effective bone density building medical technology which is now partnered with Tony Robbins and OsteoStrong for rapid clinic deployment. Inventor of X3, a technology that is proven to develop muscle much faster than conventional weight lifting, all with the lowest risk of joint injury, Dr. Jaquish methods are used in training the world's most elite athletes and associations such as the entire Miami Heat organization, various NFL and NBA players, as well as Olympians. During our discussion, you'll discover: -Why lifting weights is the wrong way to build muscle...6:21           -A workout using the VRT protocol...15:05         -Ways to maximize hyperplasia in the muscles during VRT...17:30         -Why you shouldn't worry about your muscle fiber type...29:15         -The questions an ideal exercise program should cover...31:45         -Why doing cardio for weight loss is a lie...41:30       -Selecting the best training bands...47:30       -Whether or not drugs are necessary to enhance training...53:45       -How the fitness industry has failed to make people truly fit...1:00:05 -And much more!

How Nasal Breathing Can Completely Transform Your Health
We are a nation of mouth breathers. Well, a large portion of us is, anyway. And when I say mouth breather, I’m referring to people that breathe in and out of their mouth most of the time, sometimes unknowingly. This is not what the mouth is for. In fact, breathing through your mouth inhibits your lungs from doing their job properly. It can lead to all sorts of respiratory problems like asthma and sleep apnea. So, what’s the answer? Nasal breathing. On a recent episode of The Darin Olien Show, I had the opportunity to sit down with the amazing Patrick McKeown. Patrick is a breathing advisor to Laird Hamilton’s XPT. He’s a Fellow of The Royal Society of Biology and has been published in medical journals worldwide. I’ve recommended his book, The Oxygen Advantage, more than any other book in the last few years. In this book,  Patrick explains specially formulated techniques he teaches to reduce breathlessness during exercise, increase oxygen to the brain, and improve sleep and concentration. I originally wanted Patrick in my Netflix series, Down to Earth. But, unfortunately, we had so much information to share, it didn’t end up in the final version. Thankfully, I have another platform to get his important knowledge to you guys. Mysterious Childhood Afflictions Patrick was a mouth breather as a kid. He didn’t know it at the time, but his inadequate breathing was causing his chronic bronchitis, asthma and sleep apnea. He recalls falling asleep in class, not being able to concentrate while studying, and just generally having a harder time with school than most of his peers. His experience with health issues as a child fuels his passion to spread the word about nasal breathing today. Nasal breathing is exactly what it sounds like - when you breathe in and out through your nose, instead of your mouth. “When you think of a kid’s intelligence, it’s often determined by what they achieve academically. But nobody is considering the sleep quality of these kids,” Patrick explains. “And a child with high intelligence, but poor sleep quality, is going to, you know, they’re not going to do well academically.” Lack of Effort by the Medical Community The thing is, no one is exploring breathing as a reason why these kids aren’t sleeping, or aren’t sleeping well. That needs to change.  “The whole field of sleep medicine, it needs to be approached from the point of view of an engineer looking at the diameter of a pipe,” says Patrick. “If you listen to somebody snoring, you know there is resistance there to the flow of breathing there.” So why isn’t breathing a common part of any respiratory medicine? Isn’t it obvious? “The only reason that change has not happened is because of money,” Patrick says. “My honest opinion is that there’s no motive to make money from teaching breathing exercises.” This is science, guys. Breathing through your nose changes the whole game. Patrick explains. “When you’re breathing in through your nose, you are picking up a gas called nitric oxide. This gas is produced inside the nasal cavity. And the sinus is surrounding the nasal cavity.” He continues: “When you breathe in through your nose, and you’re carrying that nitric oxide laden air into your lungs, nitric oxide helps redistribute the blood throughout the lungs. This in turn increases oxygen uptake in the blood by 10%.” Change Your Habits Patrick first felt the positive effects after taping his mouth one night and using a breathing strip on his nose. After a few nights, he began waking up feeling like a whole new person. For those curious about this approach, you can try his Myotape. This amazing product trains your body to breathe through your nose while sleeping. During the day, you can make a conscious effort to breathe in and out through your nose, instead of your mouth. You’ll notice a change in your concentration, your mood, your stamina and your overall health. For more of my fascinating conversation with Patrick,

#173: Gratitude Hack Workshop with Dhru Purohit
Welcome to The Big Idea of the Week!   On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru Purohit shares a simple gratitude practice to help supercharge and accelerate our goals and dreams.  At the end of the year many of us set New Year's resolutions or an intention for how we want the next year to go. Dhru shares that he sees an interesting pattern as people start to list out their goals and dreams, priorities, habits, and the things they want to give attention and energy to. In the background, there’s this subtle sense of doubt, worry, fear, and hopelessness. Dhru believes this doubt comes from looking backwards and the way we perceive past experiences. Dr. Rick Hanson, a past podcast guest says, “The brain is like Velcro for negative experiences, but Teflon for positive ones.” Our brains have a negativity bias, and it’s tied to our evolution. Our modern brain has evolved to prioritize bad experiences, and deprioritize positive ones.  Dhru shares three questions to ask ourselves before we set our goals, which he calls a palette cleanse, that will help us remember that no matter how we feel we did at the end of the month or year, we did the best we could. It also gives us an opportunity to remember how supported we were, and what we did to help other people. Now matter how big or small… 1) What’s something tough or challenging that I did this month? 2) Who’s someone that did something for me? 3) What’s something nice I did for someone else? When you remember these three things it changes your vibration for what you think is possible, and takes you out of negativity bias into positivity bias.  Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos who recently passed away said, “No matter what your past has been, you have a spotless future.” Also mentioned in today’s episode: - For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.
