Emily Morse is a Doctor of Human Sexuality and the host of the longest-running sexual wellness podcast Sex with Emily. She is also the best-selling author of the book Hot Sex: Over 200 Things You Can Try Tonight.

Emily has helped millions of people around the world navigate their sex lives.

Her candid conversations challenge cultural taboos, misinformation and awkward sex talks to create a future where people can deeply connect and embrace pleasure-filled lives.

Warning: This podcast is content of an adult nature.

This is a very wide-ranging conversation around all things sex (for single people and those in relationships) but here are some of thing things we talked about in today’s podcast:

Key Points

· Pleasure is our birthright, and it goes beyond sex. We should be deliberately setting aside time everyday to go toward those things that give us pleasure. For one reason or another, there are times when we feel the need to stifle or numb pleasurable feelings. In the context of sex, this is one of the big reasons many topics have become taboo, and why many men and women find having these conversations with their partners very uncomfortable.

· A lot of people believe that scheduling sex is the least sexy thing you can do because it just seems like another task instead of being spontaneous. But the whole point of scheduling sex is that everyone is so busy nowadays that everything is prioritized before sex. Before we know it, days, or even weeks, go by and nothing happens. By having sex

scheduled, you incentivize yourself to prepare for it and make it worthwhile for both partners.

· “When we heal ourselves sexually, we heal so many other parts of our life.” Many people look at sex as an “outlier”. Physical, mental, and spiritual health are all the rage now, and sexual health is like the “bastard child” of the wellness industry. On the extreme end, some people have experienced sexual assault. For most others, there is low self-esteem around one’s sex life. Once we come to terms with these “underlying roadblocks” to a healthy sex life—perhaps via therapy, other times by simply having open conversations with our partner about sex—other areas of our life improve, such as having boosts in our immune system, serotonin, and other feel-good hormones.

Vicki is a motivational speaker, adventurer, entrepreneur and world record holder. 

After 20 years in a relationship that limited and stifled her, former advertising professional, turned fitness pioneer and award-winning entrepreneur, Vicki became one of the first ever women to participate in Channel 4’s ‘SAS Who Dares Wins’, reaching the final stages after 11 days in extreme conditions at an altitude of 3,000ft in Chile.

In 2021, she and 2 other women, the Girls Who Dare, set a new World Record for rowing unaided across the Pacific Ocean, confronting her fear of deep, open water to do so. It took 60 days, 17 hours and 6 minutes.

This year, she plans to participate in the World’s Toughest Bike Race, the Race Across America (RAAM), covering 3,000 miles across 17 states in just 7 days.

Today’s episode is a fly-on-the-wall conversation with one of my closest friends, Paul Dermody. We focused initially on nutrition and diet and then went in a different direction about halfway through the episode. If you enjoyed any of our previous conversations with a similar show structure, then this is not to be missed.

Key Points

· Many of us have a tendency to overestimate our nutritional knowledge. Paul encourages us to reflect on why we think about food the way we do, especially if we’re stuck in our health and fitness goals. Cultivate self-awareness around where you’re taking in your information and humble yourself to embrace the possibility that there may be gaps in your knowledge—and that some of that “knowledge” may be outright wrong.

· Suffering comes from our belief that we can predict the behavior or thoughts of other people. It’s unproductive to rely only on the little voice inside your head, because more often than not, we tend to be our own worst critic and overrationalize situations when relying on our own assumptions. Don’t try to predict the intentions of other people. It’s almost always a fruitless endeavor.

· It’s easy to get wrapped up in the idea that this one achievement or one event or one purchase will make you happy. What usually happens is, once those goals are reached, whatever high you experience always turns out to be temporary, and you’re off chasing the next goal. True happiness is found in the moment and counting all the small blessings that we tend to take for granted, and not in simply pining for targets that we may or may never hit.

Orla O’ Flaherty is a herbalist, naturopath, and nutritionist who specialises in female health.

She’s also one of my closest friends, and we go deep on hormones (for women and men) in today’s podcast.

This one is worth saving for a couple of relistens as there are knowledge bombs left, right, and center in today’s episode.

Key Points

· Most people know that what we put into our system has a direct effect on our health. That said, the general public has accepted as healthy certain foods that actually have negative effects on your body. Oats are a great source of carbohydrates, reduce anxiety, and promote sleep; but at the same time oats are proinflammatory because they contain what are known as phytates. Then there is soy, which contains phytoestrogens that may adversely affect hormones. Unless your soy is organic, non-GMO, and fermented, Orla advises keeping it out of your diet.

· Before looking at how to boost your sex drive, the first thing to ask yourself is why your sex drive is low in the first place. For women, predominantly, there is an issue with their estrogen and testosterone—their estrogen levels may not be rising optimally, and their testosterone isn’t being activated. Women on the pill will automatically have a lower sex drive. For men, especially those over 45, low sex drive is usually due to low testosterone levels. Men under 45 with low sex drive, on the other hand, may be experiencing psychological issues.

· Stress is not only one of the biggest culprits when it comes to fertility issues, but it makes the sex act itself robotic. “My first thing is to get women to stop trying,” says Orla. In addition, beware “The Two-Week Wait” following ovulation when a woman

waits to see whether they are pregnant. Those two weeks may turn into two months or two years, which only serves to compound their stress levels.

Tim Spector is a Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College London.

He has won several academic awards and published over 700 academic papers, a large proportion of which relate directly to nutrition and the causes of obesity. Since 2011 he has been leading the largest microbiome project in the UK, using genetic sequencing to study the bacteria in the guts of 5,000 twins. He is the lead investigator for BRITISH GUT, the UK’s largest open-source science project to understand the microbial diversity of the human gut.

He is a prolific writer with several popular science and diet books, the most recent of which will be the focus of today’s conversation. That book is called Spoon-Fed: Why Almost Everything We’ve Been Told about Food is Wrong.

If you’ve never questioned the conventional “wisdom” when it comes to the food choices you make, or you just geek out on nutrition and anything to do with the gut (like me), then this is a must-listen.

Key Points

Personalized nutrition is the way to go. As Tim explains, mainstream consensus on proper caloric intake, macro ratio, and the like are basing numbers off of a mythical ideal human being. Women needing 2000 calories per day and men needing 2500 per day is based on very crude averages that ignore all the latest science about how our body uses different foods differently even if they have the same calories.

If you want to improve your gut health, the main focus should be on increasing the diversity of species. There is no one probiotic that will optimize gut health. You need more strains to produce a wider range of chemicals. People who, every week, avoid ultra-processed foods and eat 30 different types of plants, nuts, seeds, and herbs that are high in polyphenols have the most diversity in their microbiome. They also don’t snack to rest their microbes.

We’re all unique in how we process different kinds of foods. There is no one-size-fits-all nutrition plan. You need to experiment with different foods and portion sizes to see what your body and brain best respond to. All the while, always look after your gut microbes. Gut health is

an incredibly underrated factor in human wellness. If you make it a point to maintain a diverse microbiome, your overall health will skyrocket.

She is the host of the podcast of the same name and founder of Sunrise Social.

This episode is very applicable to anyone who struggles with social pressure or worrying too much about the opinions of others. It’s a bit more of a ‘fly on the wall conversation’ than a traditional structured interview; so I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed recording it.

  • Her backstory and the creation of a county down under 
  • The social pressure around not being married and having kids in your 30’s
  • Giving up alcohol and casual drinking (and the extreme social pressure that can come with it. 
  • Why you need to do regular digital detoxes for your mental health.
