On today’s show, Emily is joined by host, producer, and content creator Hannah Cranston to talk about social media, dating, and what the deal is with both.
With the rise in popularity of BDSM and all things kink, there are also a lot of misconceptions going around. Unfortunately, some of the recent movies about BDSM (not naming names *cough*) miss the mark on the cornerstone principles of BDSM for most kinksters.
In the dynamic pool of dating and more, it goes without saying no two couples are exactly alike.
Between different interests, goals, temperaments and zodiac signs – it’s a wonder how we’re ever able to wade through the crowds to find a companion who suits our fancy. But for as unique as each of us are, somehow couples often manage to find themselves up against the same relationship ruts.
Emily Morse started her podcast, Sex With Emily, at first out of curiosity – what does great sex look like?
She started interviewing people from the comforts of her living room couch, glass of wine in hand, and genuine interest in mind.
Orgasms: the climactic point of our sexual bouts, the light at the end of the tunnel, the eruption of pleasure that releases euphoric brain chemicals into our entire bodies.
While they do not necessarily have to be the goal every time we have sex, a life without them just doesn’t seem as fulfilling.
Q: DEAR EMILY,
I’ve been dating my current boyfriend for just about a year now, and he’s amazing! We have great sex, but it’s not always the most exciting. He regularly asks me what I’m interested in, but I don’t know how to approach the topic. We recently took a sex questionnaire (where you compare answers at the end), and it really helped me to get some of my wants out on the table—which he’s been very responsive to—but I’d still like to try some more exciting things, like temperature play and being tied down.
How do I bring these up without (a) scaring the pants off him and (b) making him feel bad? Because I love our sex, I just think it could be more intense and sensual.
