"Why don't you GROW UP?" "GET A JOB!" "Do something with yourSELF!" We've all heard THAT before right? To some, those exclamations remind us of our adolescence when our parents were down our throats about our future. To others, however, it reminds us of last week - but this time - with our significant others! In this episode we talk about the difference between a man child and a kid heart. Is there a difference or should they just both put on their adult pants. Are the significant others out of line? Should the men be allowed to have a fun side? You know what they say "all work and no play..." But what do YOU say? Would you tolerate a man child or would you leave him in the dust in his diapers? Tune in to see what we said!
How much is sex important to you? To some, it's MONUMENTAL. To others a big MEH. Experts say sex is important in a relationship. Others say SCREW the experts (no pun intended). What do you when confronted with the fact someone you're newly dating tells you they're celibate? Do you stay or skidaddle? What do you if you're in the middle of a relationship and your partner decides that they want to become celibate? Do you join in or jump off at the next exit? Waiting til marriage to some sounds wonderful, but others don't know when that big day is - so is it worth the wait, to wait? Tune in to see what we think about this!
You wake up, feeling bloated, & go check the scale to confirm your assumptions. *Ugh* 10 MORE pounds?! WHYYYY. You jump back into bed, completely cover yourself in your blanket and make yourself into what you feel like - a human burrito. Your S/o comes in the room to greet you but you've decided to never interact with the natural world AGAIN! Over dramatic? Sure, but it doesn't take away how a lot of people feel when it comes to their self image. The feeling of doubt, shame, and despair are written all over our faces with no pads to remove the things we "makeup" about ourselves. So what do we do? Our S/o loves us just the way we are, but why don't we? Why can't we see the brighter side of things? Here to discuss this topic is UK's own Super Fan Sam as she shares her own personal story of her struggle with self image and reveals what fears she has when it comes to her weight and relationship. Tune in to hear some great stuff!
There you are about to enter the reception hall. You hear the DJ say his announcement "and now for the first time ever, I present to you ---"; the doors open. "Mr & Mrs (Fill in the blank)." What do you want to be called? Do you have your new married man or are you keeping your surname? Now more then ever that question is up for debate when it used to a non issue. What happened? Is it a sign of the times? An Archaic trope? Is it disrespectful to not take the new "family" name or is it just as disrespectful to assume that your new wife would? "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet" - William Shakespeare. We'll see about that! Tune in to see what this trio had to say on the subject!
From school shootings to our favorite musical artists, the elephant in the room has now become the bull in a china shop. Mass hysteria for something we should have had under control for some time now. At least we're now talking about it publicly as opposed to putting it under the rug. Mental illness. Even if you don't have it, it's reach will effect you in some form or fashion. It's one thing to hear about it on the news, but how about if someone you desire is going through their own battles? How do you deal with that? Do you want to learn more or are you scared by what you hear on TV? Will you pre-judge or take the time to learn that maybe your diagnosis of what mental illness is is greatly exaggerated. Tune in to what we had to say on this very important subject.
Back on the podcast is Jenn's niece, Jasmine, and her girlfriend Sarah. It's a laid back episode this week as we tackle subjects that pop up from thin air.

"It's okay". "Thanks in advance". "No that's okay...I'LL do it". YEESH. Have you heard or spoken any of these lines? We put so much effort into avoiding conflict. Are you the same? Can you identify?

Tune in to hear what we had to say!
#109 - Naked & Afraid: How Do We Date & Mate In a #MeToo World? w/Sexologist & Psychotherapist Dr. Kristie Overstreet
From Ansari to "I'm Sorry", there's been a range of the good, the bad, and the ugly pertaining to the #MeToo Movement. The one thing lacking is sort of a "rules and regulations" to the conversation. How do we date in a #metoo world? How do we touch/make love to a suitor? Can we still mimic what they do in the movies or is that outdated? Can a person be "too" careful enough to ruin the mood? No one wants to make anyone uncomfortable so how do we go about interacting with someone in a romatic manner? We got a returning guest to hopefully help us make sense of this new world we live in. Tune in to see what we came up with!
Have you ever dated someone only to find that they're juuust out of reach? Not mentally out of reach, or even physically - but geographically. We're not even talking long distance either. Maybe a bridge away or a couple tolls, or how about even a hour away. Yes, as the saying goes "what won't you do for love", but we're not being lazy here! Going back and forth seeing someone who may live in a metropolitan area while you may be "in the sticks" is a daunting venture in the world of dating. Time & money are at an all time high when dealing with these parameters. So is it worth depleting your resources for this person, or should you just find someone with the same zip code? Tune in as we talk this out with our guest!
This is pretty much a revisit of a topic we explored on Episode 29 but with a new spin on things and with a new person! What position should we play in a relationship? Should we take turns? What if you are the lead and don't feel comfortable being the submissive one because it doesn't suit who you are? Will you step back for the betterment of the relationship or do you feel that we have our roles to play and no need to play musical chairs? Listen in to hear what we had to say!
We got a PACKED HOUSE this episode because it is such a hot topic that we couldn't do it alone. FINALLY, it's the two people that we've been trying to get on at the same time meeting for the first time EVER! We were waiting for the fisticuffs to fly between our guests but little did we know, the tables would turn and it would be the HOSTS that would be in the heat of battle! One guest even got some verbal jabs in to prove their point. Was it justified or was insecurity at play? Was it "Tough Love" or a battle royale? What in the blue hell could have gotten us all riled up? You're gonna have to tune in to find out!
