Sex Wonks Podcast Episode 36: Can’t Buy Me Love

Newsflash! Rosa’s got tits and a newly lasered cooch. And why does Rosa have a freshly lasered cooch you ask dear listeners? Ms. Sparks has the potential for a hot date! And while Rosa’s potentially hot date lives a couple of hours away, Ed’s lives a half a continent away. But hey, you takes the good with the bad as Rosa and Ed discuss.

Can money buy love or at the very least good sex? Ummm, perhaps not according to some women. In a survey done by “All You” magazine more than 50 percent of the respondents said they’d give up sex for  six months to save $2,500. However on the flip side according an article entitled “The Rich Libido”  88% of women surveyed for the article said more money gave them better sex, which they defined as ‘higher quality’ sex.

But according an article by Web MD sex may be better than money for happiness. The article states, “Despite popular opinion, [researchers] find that having more money doesn’t mean you get more sex; there’s no difference between the frequency of sex and income level. But they do find sex seems to have a greater effect on happiness levels in highly educated—and [presumably] wealthier—people than on those with lower educational status.”

So. Can money buy you love? Or is sex the currency that can bring us greater happiness?

Sex Wonks Podcast Episode 35: F*ck Valentine!

While Rosa and Ed somehow missed it, this week they catch up and say, “F*ck Valentine”! Not that they’re bitter or anything. Looks like there’s boy trouble in the ‘hood. Rosa shares a story of a good Valentine’s Day gone bad that recently happened to a close friend. This year, Ed decided to be the objective observer of V-Day rather than be a participant in the holiday. As such, he tells a couple of Valentine’s Day tales of two of his co-workers. What says I love you most? Apparently – according to one of Ed’s neighbors – it’s three foot tall Hello Kitty heart balloons.

What is the secret to maintaining desire in a long term relationship – and can we WANT what we already have? According to Esther Perel it’s a conscious choice to create and foster an erotic space. Ms. Perel has also has discovered the time when we feel the most desire for significant others may be different than we think. The loins don’t only grow fonder when they’re away. But rather, when they’re close but doing their own thing that they love. So love strengthens love and desire.

Sex Wonks Podcast Episode 34: The Big Ten Part 2

Perhaps ten is a magic number? This week the Wonks celebrate another big ten—the ten things you should never discuss after sex (according to D.H. Lawerence’s Lady Chatterly’s Lover). However, before they dive into the D.H., perhaps Rosa has discovered an answer to a shrinking segment of the world’s population?

Feel the magic.

Sex Wonks Podcast Episode 33: The Big Ten

The Wonks are stoked that it’s their 33rd episode ’cause double threes is a lucky number. This week, Rosa is having her lady’s time and shares with us that she has a rather unusual symptom when Aunt Flo’ comes to visit. Or is it so unusual?

Got boobs? Ed relays a recent close encounter of the boob-a-licious kind in Chinatown while he waited for a OKCupid date. Who knew that Hooters serves General Tso’s Chicken?

Why should we be having sex? The Wonks discuss the ten reasons why sex is so awesome (outside the obvious). From critical thinking to pain relief, it’s better than Vitamin C. Not to mention, Juan Ponce de León had it all wrong when he went traipsing the globe for the Fountain of Youth. Turns out we’ve all got access to it – just reach out and touch someone in their… ahem… fountain.

So c’mon, People. Fuck more, feel better and live longer!
