REAL, JOYFUL SEX with Emily Nagoski
Play • 1 hr 6 min

We welcome our very first guest, author and sex educator Emily Nagoski, who talks with us about how to finally build true, joyful, confident sex lives:

1. How our sex issues are totally normal—we’re all worrying about the same things. 

2. Why more than 75% of women do not orgasm from penetration alone—and why Glennon thinks the world doesn’t want us to know that.

3. The single factor that is most predictive of strong sustained sexual connection over time. 

4. How Abby’s still healing after a lifetime in locker rooms spent comparing her body to other women’s bodies.

CW: We reference sexual trauma, including what to say when someone discloses sexual trauma to you.
