Great sex for life!

Season 7, Ep. 81

Let's talk SEX!


The taboos, intimacy, pornography, vulnerability, communication, monogamy, infidelity, pleasure, orgasms, erectile dysfunction and so much more...


How can we fit so much into one episode you might wonder? Well, we did it again, we decided to make life easier for you by taking the best nuggets from our series on Sex, Pleasure and Relationships and we put it into one bite-sized episode for you!


This topic is fascinating! We all do it and yet we seem to only talk about it publicly when it comes to fertility. Despite the fact that "90% of sex is for pleasure" - Dan Savage


So why is this? Why can't we have good honest conversations without feeling the need to crack a joke or only talk top-level stuff?


And yet according to the Huffington Post, more people watch porn than they do Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu combined.

With this kind of stats, you'd think we would be talking about sex all the time.


In this episode, we explore this lack of communication, we gain some great advice on how to improve our own sex lives, have orgasms, reduce erectile dysfunction and so much more...


A winning episode. Enjoy!


Lots of Love,

Dave & Steve x

Let’s take the anxiety out of sleep! with Russel Foster

Season 7, Ep. 85
Why do we have a biological clock?Do you struggle to get up in the morning?Does sleep affect men differently to women?How do you know you are getting enough sleep?Is there a link between sleep disruption and mental health?“Most people don’t have a sleeping problem, they have an anxiety problem”Born in Aldershot in 1959, Russell Foster is an award winning professor of circadian neuroscience at Oxford and the director of the Nuffield Laboratory of Ophthalmology. For his discovery of non-rod, non-cone ocular photoreceptors he received numerous awards including the Zoological Society scientific medal. He has written numerous books, his latest being -  Life Time: The New Science of the Body Clock, and How It Can Revolutionize Your Sleep and Health.According to Russell, when it comes to sleep one glove does not fit all. The notion that we need “8 hours of sleep per day” to be healthy is nonsense says Russell. There are numerous factors that interplay to create a good nights sleep and each one of us is unique to the other.Russell wants to remove the anxiety associated with sleep and get down to the root of why we sleep the way we do. “To understand if you are getting enough sleep the first thing is to ask yourself are you not feeling able to function optimally during the day? Do you need an alarm clock? Does it take you a long time to get up? Do you feel sluggish? Do you need caffeine? Do you need a nap? On your time off do you oversleep? Are you irritable? It’s listening to our bodies! And listening to it carefully as the tired brain can delude itself to think that it’s not tired.In this episode Russell breaks down the biological clock and circadian rhythm, why certain people are morning people vs night owls, how waking up in the night isn’t necessarily a bad thing, how sleep and mental health are linked, how morning light vs evening light effects us and how different types of work could go against our sleep requirements.He really covers it all and will put you at ease if you consider yourself someone who struggles with sleep.A fascinating episode - Enjoy!Lots of Love,Dave & SteveTo find out more about Russell Foster and his work, check out his latest book Life Time: The New Science of the Body Clock, and How It Can Revolutionize Your Sleep and Health.This episode is sponsored by Vivobarefoot Footwear.
