    Mindfulness is one of those wibbly wobbly timey wimey words that seems to mean everything and nothing all at once which… honestly is a little on brand for the American idea of Buddhist psychology. But like, what actually is any of this? And what, if anything at all, can 2,500 years of what we can only charitably call ‘research’ have to say about our modern life and times? Licensed Therapist David Teachout joins Kara and Christy for a discussion on the east-meets-west rumble between Buddha and Freud.

    Kinda telling that we only have one or two nicknames for noses, objectively the most hilarious looking of all body parts, and about 10,000 for vulvas. Besides the obvious purity culture madness, why are we so uncomfortable talking about our vajayjay-kitty-vagines?

    American equality has always been a little more equal for some and nowhere is that more clear than the recent Respect for Marriage Act which failed to fully codify rights granted by the courts in Obergefell v Hodges and Loving v Virginia. Even as those important precedents stand, marriage equality eludes many with financial and medical hardships and its protections exist only for the monogamous. Long-time friend of the show Lily Bacon returns to share her life experiences and day to day realities made less safe in a post Dobbs world. Politicalized polyamory, your calls and questions and what’s turning us on this week on SecX!

    Reality Dating may not be the most accurate mirror to hold up to society but it does shine a light on where we’re at as a culture- a biphobic, mate guarding, co-dependent culture. Is there more to trashy tv than meets the eye or is the toxicity catching? Kara Griffin corrals a conversation with our panel of pop-corn throwing reality tv star super-stans Phoebe Rose, Miss O Kissed and Licensed Professional Counselor Ashley Hogan to find out once and for all who is here to make friends and who is here to win.

  • Secular Sexuality 09.49 12-08-2022 with Christy Powell and Forrest Valkai

    09/12/2022 Duração: 01h25min

    It’s generally true that yeah, size doesn’t matter, at least not for that thing that matters most. And, quite frankly, it’s never a good look to get into some sort of measuring contest in a misguided effort to prove your masculinity. But standing next to the rest of the animal kingdom, what can it tell us about our humanity? This week renegade science teacher and bioanthropologist Forrest Valkai returns to talk about our human form and function, about monkey dicks and human hearts, your calls and questions and of course what’s turning us on this week!Secular Sexuality show is LIVE every Thursday from 7:00 to 8:30pm Central Time

  • Secular Sexuality 09.48 12-01-2022 with Christy Powell and Shannon Q

    02/12/2022 Duração: 01h17min

    Middle ground is in short supply these days- bipartisan legislation, mid budget movies and peaceful protests all seem to have gone the way of the easy listening radio station. As ‘nones’ take the majority and organized religion finds itself in retreat, how much space is there for tolerance? How does a tolerant society tolerate a book that offers no peace but proposes “to turn a man against his father” and ”a daughter against her mother?” In these vitriolic times activist and high priestess Shannon Q returns to SecX to offer her insight, her compassion and quite possibly her sword in the ongoing culture wars.

    Should you ever have the chance to join us here at the Atheist Community of Austin’s Free Thought Library in Central Texas you’ll likely hear one of our favorite bits of local slang- ya’ll know the one I mean. And, as we like to say, ya’ll means all ya’ll. Joining Christy this week live IN STUDIO is LPC Associate JP Cardenas, health at every size therapist and fat liberation activist, eager to set the record straight on body positivity, BMI and possibly a little TMI on bodies of all sorts and sizes.

  • Secular Sexuality 09.45 11-10-2022 with Christy Powell, Kara Griffin, and Emma Thorne

    11/11/2022 Duração: 01h20min

    The internet can be dark, and full of terrors, but many of us rely on it to learn not just about the world but each other and ourselves. It’s no surprise then that the same tools that have endangered our health and threatened our elections in recent years are being used to divide us, not just into arbitrary gender boxes but into the sexed and unsexed, the hunter and the gatekeeper or the alpha and the beta. What’s a lonely ex-vangelical to do? Emma Thorne brings her specific blend of little duck energy and British snark from her channel to ours to help us understand what the hell an alpha male really is and what we can do to avoid the pitfalls and pseudoscience on our way to the love we want and need. Catch the conversation with all of your calls and questions plus what’s turning Emma Thorne on this week on SecX! Secular Sexuality show is LIVE every Thursday from 7:00 to 8:30pm Central Time

  • Secular Sexuality 09.44 11-03-2022 with Christy Powell and Ashley Hogan

    04/11/2022 Duração: 01h16min

    You remember recess at school- dressing up like a firefighter or cops and robbers, playing house, pulling hair… maybe not all that different from playtime for adults. Turns out, play and imagination weren’t exactly things we meant to outgrow and 10,000 ads about how to ‘spice up our relationship’ aren’t exactly solving the problem. This week play therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor Ashley Hogan joins Christy in a conversation about play, toys and the magical kingdom of adult make-believe.

  • Secular Sexuality 09.41 10-13-2022 with Christy Powell and ExXtian Erin

    14/10/2022 Duração: 01h23min

    How exactly does one “love the sinner” and “hate the sin” when the sin in question is fundamental to who we are as people? We’ve come to see religion as one of the most powerfully dividing forces of the modern world so it begs the question- does it matter if our families see themselves as loving people following a loving god rather than the political pawns duped by charlatans that we imagine them as? If Christ came to divide families and put a sword to the wicked, is there community between those inside and outside the body of Christ? Catch this special Halloween month conversation between Christy and ExXtian Erin about why they burned witches and how we can feel about it. Burning philosophical quandaries, your calls and questions and what’s turning us on this week on SecX!
