The types and levels of touch: nurturing, therapeutic, sensual, and sexual. Oxytocin is released during interpersonal touch – promoting a feeling of calmness, pleasantness, and mild euphoria. For greater partner pleasure and romance, “set and setting” is essential! Challenges, including anxiety, can arise… Sheri has suggestions for dealing with these, including relaxation exercises. Tune in for inspiration!

Dr. Lori Buckley – www.DrLoriBuckley.com – returned to the program. Her book is “21 Decisions for Great Sex & A Happy Relationship,” available on AMAZON. For this show edition we did not talk about sex…This is unusual for us – as friends and colleagues! We spoke about loss: the ending of a relationship – whether through death, divorce, or the ending of a committed, romantic coupleship. Dr. Lori lost her partner Alan six months ago in a Thailand traffic accident. Dr. Diana’s late husband Charlie died a number of years ago of a heart attack – one that was totally unexpected.  Dr. Lori’s healing journey has been profound, transforming; what she knows for sure is “Cherish every moment!” Don’t just say Carpe diem, but declare Carpe vitam – seize the life! Both of us are now familiar with grief – personally and clinically. Leaning toward – not away – from the pain will help you heal. To lean toward the pain, when you are feeling bad, stop and allow yourself to feel the emotion by talking to someone or writing about it. Sadness makes you more rational, your thinking more concrete. Accepting sadness can, ironically , lower depression. While you never look for grief, it’s one of the hugest growing experiences you’ll ever have. It deepens you as a human being. Please listen to this show. Dr. Lori is especially articulate and passionate! You can benefit from the wisdom gleaned.

Sheri Winston is a celebrated sexuality teacher, an award-winning author and a medical professional who brings over two decades of experience as a certified nurse-midwife and gynecology practitioner. Her book “Succulent Sex Craft” is available on AMAZON; but, you’ll also want to check out her website www.IntimateArtsCenter.com. Sheri and Dr. Diana focused on solo-sex – and solo sex skills. While we avoided the word “masturbation,” we acknowledged that it is the primary form of sexual expression. It’s not just for kids or for those in between lovers or for old people who end up alone. Self-pleasuring is a way for all of us to learn about sexual response. Sexual skills are like any other skills; they’re not magically inherited, they have to be learned. Sheri has many tools, as well as many words of wisdom: “The ascent into self love celebrates your desire, hones your abilities and ultimately honors yourself.” Part 2 with Sheri will be on September 27th. Please turn in for both shows – for lots of stimulating information!
