Ep. 103 – Emily Nagoski – Bestselling Author of Come As You Are – Where Science and Sex Meet
Emily Nagoski is the award-winning author of the New York Times bestseller, Come As You Are: the surprising new science that will transform your sex life. She began her work as a sex educator at the University of Delaware, where volunteered as a peer sex educator while she studied psychology with minors in cognitive science and philosophy.
She went on to earn an M.S. in Counseling and a Ph.D. in Health Behavior, both from Indiana University, with clinical and research training at the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction. After eight years working at Smith College, Emily is now working on her second book, about women’s overall well-being. It’s called Burnout.
Emily and I dive deep into her work on this episode talking about the dual-control model, what it is and what it means for your sex drive. We chat about what is arousal and why it can be different for all of us. Emily defines and dives into nonconcordance, and why your body and your brain are not always in alignment.
Of course, no talk with a sex researcher is complete without talking about the big “O” orgasm. She talks about why desire not pleasure is the measure. We finish out the podcast talking about her latest book she is working on called Burnout.
