Ep. 31: The Law of Attraction

Attraction is the action or power of evoking interest, pleasure, or liking for someone or something. On this episode we talk about how attraction can make us blind but also how can we use attraction to improve our personal life and our love life through the Law of Attraction. Sometimes when we feel very attracted to someone we forget about the world and miss the red flags. Lorena Russi tells us about her experience. Lorena is a Comedian and filmmaker based in Brooklyn, she has hosted Chipotle’s Snapchat channel, and has worked in editing for places like "The Late Show w/ Stephen Colbert," Spotify and T-Mobile. How can we use the Law of Attraction to have a better love life?... Nikki Novo walks us through the process. Nikki is a Cuban-American bestselling author and intuitive dating coach. Her latest book, “The Final Swipe: Heal Your Heart, Find Your Person, and End the Dating Search for Good,” was listed as the number one dating book in Amazon.

Ep. 8 One Night Stands

One Night Stands Having casual sex is ok, but for me, growing up in a religious and very closed minded environment and culture, one night stands were some what of a taboo, so I wanted to learn how other people in this modern world see one night stands. On this episode I first talked to Athalie, who is getting ready to start her Masters degree in Human Sexuality and whom gave me her opinion on why some people are better at causal sex than some of us. Secondly Bobby will tell us how technology is completely changing the way we can get sex. And last but certainly not least, Susan and Jamie gives us heartful stories of what could happen after a one night stand.

Ep. 27: NO means NO

The #MeToo movement has changed not only the workplace, but also the dating scene. Getting someone too many drinks on a date, to get a few more kisses out of it is not right. Buying someone a drink doesn’t give you permission to take them home, and seeing a woman with a pronounced cleavage is not a green light for anything. Consent is the only green or red light you should get. Today’s episode is dedicated to teach you and me about consent. Featuring: Matty Konrath, a 30-something year old woman living in NYC, who went to a curly hair salon in the neighborhood of Gramercy in Manhattan, and did not get the best haircut… or experience. Domina Franco, a sex educator, coach and writer who has been studying human sexuality for over 20 years. For the male perspective we talked with Mark Pagan, who, for personal curiosity, has been studying masculinity for a while and produces the awarded podcast: Other Men Need Help. We also talked to Jamie Ansley and Courtney Cleman from The V Club. Courtney Cleman is a New York City based sex + relationship expert. She co-founded The V Club in New York City to help women and men break down the mental barriers that prevent them from having the love life they desire. Jamie Anslie is a drama therapist. She teaches group and private classes and also leads the Talk Love Chat support group. The V Club is a space that offers masterclasses that teach women and men everything they need to know about dating, love and relationships to create the love life of their dreams. It currently offers 5 types of classes: How to Get a Second Date, Ladies Come First, Men by Design, The Mature Woman’s Guide to Sexual Health and Relationships and Talk Love: Chat Group. Your host and producer is Vanessa Valerio. Our music on this episode is the song “Colorless” by Twintapes. Today’s episode is sponsored by TukFab, a tuk tuk design and fabrication company.
