005 - Sex Talk with Evelin Dacker, MD


In this episode I speak with Dr. Evelin Dacker, executive director of SexPositive Portland. We discuss:

  • Mission of SexPositive Portland
  • Why is sex important for our mental health or otherwise?
  • What are the consequences of denying our sexual nature?
  • How would one go about exploring their sexuality?
  • Myth-busting:
    • Porn leads to "deviance"
    • Masturbation is for people who can't get laid
    • Polyamory is for sex addicts
    • BDSM and kink are unhealthy
  • How can someone who is single explore these things without a partner?
  • What can a cis-gendered, straight, vanilla person learn from the queer/poly/kink community even if they have no interest in any of those lifestyles?
