Dr. Lori Buckley is a licensed psychologist, an AASECT certified sex therapist, and a long-time friend and colleague of Dr. Diana’s. She and Dr. Lori discussed her recent book “21 Decisions for Great Sex & a Happy Relationship.”  This book is concise, articulate, and helpful with its “action steps.” The inspiration that got Dr. Lori going was Eleanor Roosevelt’s suggestion, “Do one thing a day that scares you. ” We spoke about decisions and questions to ask: Is this realistic? Can I commit to this for at least three months? Is there anything that will stop me from doing this? Decisions for great sex include cherishing your partner, having fun, talking more about sex. The book explains these subjects – and we elaborated. Please visit www.DrLoriBuckley.com for more information – including how to buy her amazing book! There will be a Part 2 early in 2014.

Dr. Diana presided over a stellar panel consisting of Candida Royalle, pioneer filmmaker of female-friendly erotic movies; Nina Hartley, porn star and sex educator (“Sex is my subject, as artist, activist, scientist and healer”); and Richard Pacheco, an award-winning star from the Golden Age of Porn. All three have worked together, and all three have fascinating books – (Richard’s “HINDSIGHT” is especially hilarious)! The discussion was profound and entertaining, and we will do a Part 2. As we approach Thanksgiving, we are grateful for this program!

Candida Royalle, aka Candice – www.CandidaRoyalle.com – returned to the program. The April 23rd archived program featured her erotic films from a female perspective. This show’s topic was SEXUALITY & CANCER, two words that some may think don’t go together. Dr. Diana and Candice discussed her personal experiences with cancer, and Rebecca, a caller, contributed to this intimate, informative conversation. John Wayne’s quote is appropriate: “Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway.” Many women wish their oncologists would ask, “How’s your sex life?” We discussed the sexual fallout of chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. Vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse, and a flatlined libido are common. New perspectives may emerge: stop wasting time, start living your life better, and give what you can – while you can – in all the relationships that matter. Also, creating a real relationship with yourself, sexual or otherwise, is a true gift to glean from your experience.
