Sex Gets Real with Dawn Serra

 

Yes, we're on a break for the holidays, but Dawn just couldn't take it.

To tide us over until January 3rd, here is a short little erotica reading called "Pink" by Helena Black.

Talk to you in 2016!

A listener wants us to be really real. Just how messy is anal play? She wants to try it, but she's psyched herself out over the poop.

That sends us off on a bender on all things butts - from hair to the doorbell technique to Dylan getting REALLY excited about all the things she likes in her butt. And of course, loads of practical advice and personal stories on real butt sex and the mess factor.

Dylan closes the show with a little victory statement about Rhonda Rousey losing her fight after the lube fiasco of a few weeks ago.

Have a great holiday season, everyone! We had an amazing 2015.

Straight guys having sexing with straight guys?

We want to start the episode by saying that we stand in solidarity with Stoya after she named James Deen as her rapist. It takes tremendous courage to speak up, especially when the person you're naming is so popular and beloved.

Let's talk about the psychology of victim blaming. Let's also talk about supporting victims and focusing on healing.

Bondage Bands sent us a free sample of their bands, so Dawn has Dylan try them out on-air. Hilarity ensues.

A listener wants to know if their straight fantasies mean they are cheating or less queer. Plus, listeners write in about self-sucking.

Finally, what's with straight guys having sex with other straight guys? Is this is a thing? Does that mean you're gay? We dig in.

Sex. The scariest thing in the world?

Dawn really loved this conversation about STI stigma. A recent article in The Atlantic (link below in the show notes) talked about some research findings that show people are terrified of sex.

People judge someone more harshly for transmitting a mild case of curable chlamydia than killing someone with swine flu. Why? Because someone with chlamydia likely had prior sexual encounters and people see that as completely unforgivable.

Unfortunately, our abstinence-only focus on teaching kids how super scary sex can be - STIs can kill and pregnancy can ruin your entire life - means that as adults we simultaneously crave and vilify sex. It's a recipe for lying about STI status, taking huge risks to avoid shame, and driving behaviors into the closet.

Plus, Dawn got a new therapist to help with some relationship feels and it's blowing her mind. Permission to be messy: granted.

We're finally back on track after losing some episodes a few weeks back. We revisit a listener email about self-sucking. Should he introduce his talent to his wife? The thought kind of turns him on.

Then, Dawn and Dylan talk about masturbation being a sin along with a new superpower: zombiefying vagina goo. Scary stuff.

If you like a cushy, gel-like lube for anal, what's a body safe option? Online dating and hook-ups - it's SO easy to send a horrible first message.

Dawn & Dylan take a moment to talk about the Paris attacks, plus the lack of visibility on attacks in Beirut, Baghdad, and when the violence is against people of color. We wish peace for all us, but if we want human rights to be upheld, we need to acknowledge when racial justice issues arise.

Dawn is in the process of creating a badass online summit that will be free with some of the world's leading experts in sex, relationships, sensuality, and body love. So, a listener wrote in with a question for the summit experts. Dawn and Dylan dig in a bit.

Should a man married 14-years to a super monogamous spouse just accept that he can't have non-monogamous experiences or does he need to end the marriage with someone he loves in order to have these sexual adventures?

Plus, a kid on a bus does the jerk off motion AND throwing the spooge on cars passing by, including Dawn. She reacts.

We have a full episode for you this week. From listener stories about fingering circles as a teenager to warnings against soapy blowjobs, our listeners are certainly adventurous.

Plus, one listener wants to know what can be done now that his wife has had a full hysterectomy and has zero desire for sex. Is there any hope?

Dawn talks pubic hair, and Dylan horrifies us all with a story about a woman using a sausage to pleasure herself in a public bathroom. No, folks. Just no.

Dylan is back from Hawaii. Basically, it was really hot and there was boob sweat.

Dawn attended Sex Down South where she saw a hand sex demo, did a masturbation circle, and generally had an amazing time learning from Tristan Taormino and Amy Jo Goddard.

Plus, we have so many listener emails - a sex newbie wants to know if she should carry condoms. A swinger reports back on her latest adventures. Peoria Illinois apparently had a rad Pride. And what if your boyfriend ONLY wants to do reverse cowgirl anymore?

Dawn had a shitty week. Not only was she battling Strep, but she fried her laptop and lost this week's episode. So, we're doing a HIQI in place of our longer episode and we'll be back on track in 2 weeks.

So, what are we talking about this week besides Dylan's vacation to Hawaii? Well, a listener, who is a special needs dad, wrote in with some feedback about the interview we had on sex and disability.

Sex and a child with a social or developmental disability gets really complicated? What's right for them? How do you protect them from abuse? Can you? And when is medical treatment actually eugenics in disguise?

It's a tough conversation full of some ableist language, but we have to start somewhere.

Also, retirement communities and STIs. Teach your grandparents and parents about safer sex!

We've reached a new level of gross, folks.

So many listeners stories and confessions - from a new gross word for spooge to a story about an orgy in high school, our listeners are adventurous to the max!

And, one listener wants to know if she went too far with her sister...was it OK or did it cross the line?

We can't stress enough, either, how much we don't want unsolicited dick pics unless they're from Benedict Cumberbatch or Joseph Gordon-Levitt or George Clooney or something. And even then, an ask would be nice.

If you're in the Atlanta area, also be sure to check out Sex Down South, a brand new sex conference happening October 15-17. Dawn will be there representing the podcast, and a ton of awesome folks are speaking on everything sex positive, kink, and racial justice.

We are so excited to have Amy Jo Goddard joining us today to talk about her new book "Woman on Fire" and talking all things sexual intelligence, erotic empowerment, and pleasure.

From finding your voice to staying adventurous, Amy Jo is so eloquent and wise when it comes to exploring and growing your sexuality. We talk about identities and finding community, being endlessly curious, and giving yourself permission to define your yes in a world that tells us sex is all of these no's.

It's one of our favorite interviews we've done on the podcast, and you can find Amy Jo at womanonfirethebook.com and amyjogoddard.com.

Listeners, if you're in the DC area and you're a sex educator of some sort, you HAVE to join Dawn at Tristan Taormino's Sex Educator Bootcamp on October 18th. Our listeners get 25% off with code "deal25". Check out details and register here.

Dawn and Dylan are back in the studio after being apart for a month. We talk about the sex adventures we've had over the past few weeks, including some yummy Domme'ing in L.A. that Dawn did.

A listener, Baby, wrote in asking for our advice on how to ask her Dom to be more controlling and demanding, so we talk about all the fun ways you can play with asking for what you want in a relationship that has a power exchange.

Pegging, porn, and prostitution.

A listener wrote in with a terrific message and mentioned pegging. Which sent us off on a bender about butt sex.

Then, Dawn and Dylan talk about the new pink Viagra pill and why that name is so misleading. Flibanserin/Addyi is not what they're claiming it is, and there are better ways for most people to stimulate low desire.

Dawn ran across a fun article about Pornhub viewers that found women (yes, it's heteronormative) watch more hardcore porn than men. We discuss.

Finally, after nearly a month, we talk about the amazing Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit. With amazing talks by Charlie Glickman, Joan Price, Monica Raye Simpson, and more, it was a powerful weekend of sex and human rights.

George O'Keepe was on to something

Pussies are beautiful. Vulva are spectacular. And the problem is that too many vulva owners don't realize this.

After reading an article on the alarming demand for reconstructive surgery on labia, Dawn and Dylan weigh in on the gloriousness of pussies.

Also, a listener writes in with a confession and we talk dick pics. Again.

If you live long enough, you'll become part of the club.

Robin Wilson-Beattie joins us this week to talk all about sex and disability. So often people with disabilities are seen as asexual, but that is so wrong.

Robin shares her journey with her body as an incomplete quadriplegic, sex and BDSM, ableism, and abortion as a disabled person. It's juicy stuff. Oh, and her BDSM scene at the end is so fun to picture. Rawr!

Oh Joy, Sex Toy recently did a comic on water sports, which gets us talk about peeing on folks.

Camping, public nudity, face licking, and more.

This episode is definitely a rainbow of all the things.

We've got some listener emails talking about the Hitachi Magic Wand, face licking, and a really deep question about a spouse who claims that being put up on a pedestal is killing her libido.

Dawn reports back on Sex Geek Summer Camp and the interesting things that unfolded there.

A listener calls us out.

Small penises...they're the butt of many jokes, the catch in many commercials, and even featured on SNL as a reason to kill yourself.

So, when a listener writes in to call us out that small penises really are that bad - after all, he's been broken up with four times specifically for his small dick - Dylan and Dawn take a step back and contemplate what it means.

Hear our feedback and why the worst thing in the world may not be quite so bad.

Interested in attending Dawn's live Q&A all about relationships on Thursday, July 16th? Pop on over and sign-up. She'd love to have some listeners in the audience.

One listener wants to know what to do after seeing someone she knows in a porn clip.

Another listener isn't feeling so sexy in her body anymore and to top it off, her partner is bringing ex girlfriends into the bedroom with them and she doesn't like it.

Finally, our listener in Minnesota has a small dick, a wife who won't touch him, and now she's started deleting text messages and will disappear for 3 hours at a time. Is it time to end the marriage?

Oh. And one other thing - we love getting updates from listeners after we talk about your stories online. So report back with updates on stuff that happens. We love that.

Pop over to her Instagram and comment on the picture with your suggestion. 

Listeners write in about a foursome, a threesome, and asking for advice on pubic hair. Which launches us on a pubic hair bender. Dawn can't be the only one who likes petting hers while watching Game of Thrones.

Speaking of Game of Thrones, masturbating to your favorite TV characters is totally hot, especially when your partner incorporates them into your sexting. Oh, and what to do if you're marriage is falling apart but you really want a baby.

Don't forget SEXx Interactive is around the corner in Philly in early May. Head to sexxinteractive.com if you're in the area. Dawn will be there!

Dawn has a few firsts and shares a few details.

A few weeks ago, Dawn attended CatalystCon East. While the conference was amazing and deserves it's own episode, that same weekend she also attended a pink puja (or a sensuality workshop) and went to her first play party.

Dylan wants all the details about all the sex. Will she be disappointed?

Also, Dawn and Dylan are interviewing Cooper Beckett from Life on the Swingset next week. If you have questions about swinging or poly or Swingset-y, let us know ASAP.

A listener wants to know our favorite lesbian sex positions

Episode sponsored by Yes Please, More Please - - the art of seduction through food. Don't miss their Mexican Aphrodisiac dinner in Washington, DC on April 4, 2015.

Scissoring? Mutual masturbation? Strap-on sex? Lesbian sex positions often end up looking like any other sex position with any other gender or body. Though we do have one or two tricks up our sleeves...

And since Dylan hates vibrators and Dawn's ex partner didn't like them either, we don't have any wild and crazy stories of vibes taped to inner thighs while hanging upside down from the ceiling. But wouldn't that be awesome? ;)

SEXx Interactive is a few weeks away. Check out the line up and grab your tickets at sexxinteractive.com. Dawn will be there!

From penis size (again) to pinball machines, from jealousy to one-hit wonder orgasms - plus a special guest

Episode sponsored by Yes Please, More Please - - the art of seduction through food. Don't miss their Mexican Aphrodisiac dinner in Washington, DC on April 4, 2015.

We have a very special in-studio guest this week (who happens to have a sore ass, courtesy of Dawn). We revisit penis sizes and balls, plus listener advice and confessions from previous episodes.

One listener, Alexa, needs help with falling into old habits when it comes to communication styles and wanting to work on removing jealousy. Another listener claims to be a one hit wonder with her orgasms. Can she find a way to come in other positions?

Don't forget SEXx Interactive is around the corner in Philly in early May. Head to sexxinteractive.com and join in the fun.

What Google data reveals about our sex for sex

Episode sponsored by Yes Please, More Please - - the art of seduction through food. Don't miss their Mexican Aphrodisiac dinner in Washington, DC on April 4, 2015.

We were fascinated by a NY Times article on what people are searching for on Google. 

Guys are obsessed with cock size. Women are worried about how they smell. We're all worried about how to be better in bed, why our partners won't have sex with us, and how to say harsh things in a nice way.

Guys, stop worrying about being too small. You should be happy you aren't too big!

From phthalates and toxic toys to how to sterilize silicone and wood toys, AJ educates Dawn and Dylan on all things toys and sex. She also teaches an anal class called Back That Ass Up, so we dive deep into starting with anal play and pegging.

**Congrats to Heavy B for winning our one-year anniversary giveaway!!!**

Would you sleep with a virgin? And what does virgin even mean?

After a fabulous dinner, courtesy of Yes Please, More Please on all things aphrodisiac and sexy when it comes to food, Dylan and I discuss one of the topics that dominated the dinner party: virgins.

What is a virgin? What does it even mean, if anything at all? Is it just an oppressive social construct that doesn't actually have any meaning in a sex positive world? Is it something experience sexperts want to deal with?

Dylan certainly is ready to take anyone's V-card. Dawn isn't so sure... though, there might be certain fantasies she has...

What do you think about the label "virgin"? Is it a big deal? Is it penis in vagina sex? Does it require the presence of a hymen in women? Have things changed to the point where virginity is actually an out-dated concept that we should do away with? 

We want to know!

We birthed a sex podcast. Here's how it came to be.

It all started with Dawn being a total stalker at a lesbian club... No seriously, it did.

That's just the beginning.

And then of course, with a few glasses of champagne in her, Dylan goes on a bender about all the action she got as a DJ at the dyke bars way back in the day. Things spiral.

But in the end, it all comes back to us starting the podcast and loving all of you and Sex Gets Real was born. Ta da.
