In My Chair

I love Liz Goldwyn. She is smart, compassionate and non judgemental. She's the kind of person you confess things to. She's also a writer, filmmaker, and artist-turned-sexuality guru, caught on to the importance of sex from an early age. She was stealing her father’s Playboy magazines when she was just a little girl. It’s that curious nature that turned Goldwyn into a sort of Nancy Drew for sex, asking the questions people are often afraid to ask. She has built a career deconstructing the taboos built around sexuality, not only the extreme and kinky corners of sex, but also how it shapes our day-to-day lives. As a filmmaker, Goldwyn’s documentary Pretty Things, an adaptation of her own book, is an in-depth exploration of the golden age of burlesque. As an activist, her company The Sex Ed aims to fill America’s void of comprehensive, accessible sex education by providing a platform with “practical answers, real ‘sexperts,’ and humor.” In addition to the Sex Ed podcast, hosted by Goldwyn,she created Sexpedia, a total glossary of sex, health, and wellness terms that includes everything from “Roe V. Wade” to “Cream Pie.” Goldwyn has lectured all over the country at Museums and Universities.She was New York Editor of French Vogue and she became the first guest editor of Town & Country in its 168-year history. She has contributed to publications including The New York Times Magazine, The Financial Times, British Vogue and Vanity Fair.Goldwyn has been commissioned as an artist and designer by M.A.C Cosmetics, Van Cleef & Arpels, Le Bon Marché and Shiseido cosmetics.Liz Welcome In My Chair.

Can You Meditate Your Way To Better Orgasms? With Liz Goldwyn

After Work Drinks

Hello lovely humans and welcome to another weekend edition of After Work Drinks With… This week we’re speaking to the remarkable Liz Goldwyn. Liz is a member of Hollywood royalty—her grandfather, Samuel Goldwyn, helmed the iconic MGM studio and her father, Samuel Goldwyn Jr. was one of the industry’s most celebrated independent producers. But Liz took a slightly different path from the rest of her family. She has dabbled in everything. She’s directed documentaries; contributed as a writer for Vanity Fair and The New York Times; served as the New York editor of French Vogue and lectured at UCLA. She’s also worked collaboratively as an artist with brands like MAC, has curated a documentary program for LACMA, worked as a curator at Sotheby’s, she had a stint at Planned Parenthood and is a muse to designers like Zac Posen… But the thing we most love about Liz is The Sex-Ed, the a shame-free space she launched in 2018 to explore the relationship between sex and mental and physical health. The Sex-Ed deep-dives on everything from the effects of cannabis on sexual enjoyment, to how meditation leads to better orgasms, and what us vanilla heterosexuals can learn from the kink community, while the Sex-Ed podcast, hosted by Liz, features amazing interviews with artists and creators, people like David Lynch and Natasha Lyonne. She was more than open to field our many questions about sex, like—Is watching porn anti-feminist? What if our sexual fantasies are problematic? And can you really meditate your way to better orgasms? We can’t wait for you to listen and, if you do, rate, review and subscribe on iTunes. Love you all.

Liz Goldwyn: Sex, Sex Ed, and Hollywood

The Pornhub Podcast with Asa Akira

Liz Goldwyn is a woman of many talents - aside from being Hollywood royalty (her grandfather is THE Samuel Goldwyn,) she is an author, filmmaker, artist, and creator of The Sex Ed - an educational site that explores sex, health and consciousness in the digital age. In a time where so many young people are looking to porn to educate themselves on sexuality, Liz’s platform is a really important one. She comes on to The Pornhub Podcast to discuss ways we can further sexual education and make it less shameful, and more accessible for everyone. Where does sex ed belong - school? Or the home? Does porn have a place in sexual education?  What is the best way for parents to teach their children about their bodies? About masturbation? At what age is it appropriate to begin that conversation? How can one maintain a vibrant sex life within a long term relationship? Why does the male orgasm have to determine the length of a sexual encounter? How can we manifest things through masturbation? Also, Liz teaches  how us to practice “orgasm breathing.” Also also, tons of Hollywood questions.
