January 23, 2023: Sex as Medicine
Bernadine and Jessica Garner have a frank conversation about sex and its impact on mental health. While sex is not necessarily a topic that one should make note of as triggering — In the spirit of ensuring everyone is ok with today’s topic – we would like to say that some of what we talk about may be problematic for some folks.
Sex is a primary human need along with food, shelter, and water. However, somewhere along the line, here in our society, sex was dropped off the list. Perhaps, since we don’t die from lack of sex – as we might food or water or shelter — it was perceived as not a need but more so a desire. Death comes in many forms and the emotional impact of not having sex or having healthy sex can dramatically impact on your emotional wellbeing. A little death may not always come in the form of an orgasm.
