Birds and Bees Podcast

Birds and Bees Podcast is a sex positive education podcast with a specific goal in mind, to empower parents and couples to have sexual health conversations with each other and with their children. We strive to meet this goal by interviewing experts in their respective fields to provide listeners with tools to discuss topics in regards to: sexual development, building intimate connection, sexual health and healthy communication. We believe parents should have a source of reliable information they can turn to as they teach their kids about sexuality. Many parents feel they don’t know enough about sex to answer their child’s questions, how to bring up sexual topics, when to bring them up etc. We want this podcast to be your personal reference you can turn to when you have questions.

Braxton explores conversational IQ and how to develop with Lyn Christian M-BIT, Coach. This episode is a continuation from last week’s discussion. Braxton and Lyn discussed making your priorities the priority in the last episode. In this hour they combine your priorities with getting what you want in conversations with Conversational IQ. Lyn discusses the ways to invite communication vs trying to force a conversation. Conversational IQ is used in family dynamics, sales, customer support, and any other situation where you want to understand someone and have them listen to you. Lyn covers the levels of conversation, 6 functions of your brain, and how to use your head, heart, and gut to develop C-IQ. Braxton and Lyn explore how to use C-IQ to continually have constructive conversations with your partner, child, teen, colleagues, and loved ones.

Many of the tools and references were made from Judith E Glasser’s book Conversational Intelligence

Tina Schermer Sellers is our latest guest on Birds and Bees Podcast. She is on the show today to talk about her experience, and research around sexuality and religious beliefs. Tina gives a brief history of sexual shame in religion, talks about the purity movement, and her reasoning behind writing the book "Sex, God and the Conservative Church."

In her history research she explains the Vow of 'Onah and what this means for women being respected as sexual being, and what is expected of men. (My mind was blown learning of this vow ancient vow).

Tina goes on to identify ways to heal sexual shame (Beit from religious context or another source). She also speaks directly to parents about having 100 one-minute conversations with your children about sex. She explains how this process works and what research tells us about these minute conversations. Dr. Sellers has amazing insight and advice on how parents can teach religious values, while avoiding sexually shaming your children, while building you relationship with your children.

 And for couples she addresses how to build anticipation, desire, and intimacy in a relationship, even when you are choosing to be celibate before marriage.

How do we fit all of this into a 40-minute show? Space time manipulation .... but for real, she has so much information on such a huge subject. The show is exciting from start to finish.
