As the host of the longest running sex and relationship podcast, Emily shows us how every aspect of our health is connected to our sexual wellness. By educating us on the 5 pillars of sexual intelligence we can walk away more confident in our skin and our sex lives. From the hormone disruptors that hinder our libido, the long-debated impact of kegels (should you or should you not do them?), and whether or not you should give non-monogamy a try, this episode dives into all the juicy questions you've wanted to know but have hesitated to ask!

She is uniquely qualified to have candid conversations that challenge cultural taboos, misinformation, and awkward sex talks to create a future where people can deeply connect and embrace pleasure-filled lives.
