Episode Description

I’m not talking about the kind of box you might be imagining. I mean the regular old container box, the container that holds your knowledge, beliefs, and feelings of what constitutes Hot and Healthy Sex. This opening episode of Hot and Healthy Sex Radio is all about starting with the very basics of sex and sexuality, creating a setting for further exploration and testing your understanding of the subject. Dr. Cindy and I are going to talk about the origin and development of the sexual system including physical, social and psychological aspects. The sexual system is dynamic, capable of change, sometimes fluid and sometimes ridged. Rigidity keeps us in the same pattern. Fluidity allows us to adjust as aspects of the system change over our lifetime. This episode of Hot and Healthy Sex Radio will help you understand the foundation you have to support or interfere in your experience of Hot and Health Sex. Before we’re done I’ll test your knowledge with the Sex Organ of the Week Question.

As a child I was always curious about the way things worked; how the parts went together and meshed with each other. I spent more time than girls usually did under a car, learning about electronics and building things.

As a young adult I had the opportunity to return to school after 10 years ‘in the real world.’ Again my focus was understanding how things worked. This time the questions were about people’s personalities, beliefs, education, experiences and how they mesh in us.

Since I couldn’t seem to find a single program that helped me understand my complex questions, I spent 12 years exploring psychology, sociology, anthropology, and development while earning a Bachelors of Science, a Masters of Education, a Masters in Lifespan Development and a Masters in Counseling.

I did library and experimental research. I observed people in many settings and with different kinds of lifestyles. I talked to them about their lives, sexuality and sexual behavior. I was licensed as a therapist and completed the requirements for certification as a Sexologist in January 2000.

I've practiced as a Sex Therapist since then helping hundreds of individuals and couples, with these and other issues. From this diverse background comes an understanding of potentiality, an ability to see outside the box, and a way of putting people at ease. An alternative perspective allows me to help people see things differently.
