Oral Fixation Oct 19th: Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence RibbonOctober is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a time to connect advocates who are working to end violence against women and their children. One in three women will be the victim of domestic violence at some point in her life. This affects families and communities every day.

On the next Oral Fixation show, I will be joined by Tonya Sue Patrick, MSW. Herself a survivor of child abuse, sexual assault, and domestic violence, she works to raise awareness and to support victims. She will share her story, as well as the story of a close friend of hers who lost her life to domestic violence and the justice that was, or was not, served (depending on your view). We will also discuss applicable laws and the available resources for those affected by child abuse, sexual assault, and domestic violence. Join us for a difficult, but important, discussion on October 19th.

Oral Fixation Oct 5th: Swinging in the Queen City

Group photos of people Swinging, also known as partner swapping, came into vogue after the sexual liberation of the 1960s and the widespread availability of the birth control pill. It involves one or both partners in a relationship being sexually involved with others as a recreational activity. For couples seeking a way to spice up their sex life, this is one avenue that some explore — with mixed results.

The “lifestyle”, as some call it, has a vibrant community in the Carolinas. On the next Oral Fixation, we will be joined by a participant in the community. He is going to share how someone gets started swinging, the unique vocabulary associated with the lifestyle, the reasons why people do it, the pros and cons, resources and events in Charlotte, and he will hopefully share a few personal anecdotes as well.

We’ll also talk about a few performance-enhancing products targeted to men. Promescent is a topical spray and The Private Gym is a pelvic muscle exercise system. Do these products work, or are they capitalizing on men’s insecurities?

Oral Fixation September 21st: Boudoir Photography

Courtney by Lindsay Wynne

Before the selfie craze of recent years, photographers captured the allure of scantily clad women in a style of photography called boudoir. Since the 1920s, artfully arranged undergarments and suggestive poses have allowed women to feel sexy, desired and powerful. Today, boudoir photography is more popular than ever. It’s now common for brides to have a photo shoot and present the images to their new husband as a wedding gift. In other instances, middle-aged women do a boudoir shoot to show that they are still comfortable in their skin. Women of all ages, shapes, and sizes, find the process empowering.

On the next Oral Fixation, my guest will be Lindsay (Wynne) Hess, a Charlotte-based photographer that specializes in boudoir photography. She also has a fine art series that she is working on called River Women, where women are photographed in nature au naturale, and she is donating a portion of her proceeds to a local female-centric non-profit.

Oral Fixation September 7th: Lugenia Grider

Join Becky Knight, local Charlotte sexologist, for another installment of her Oral Fixation show on Monday, September 7th, which also happens to be Labor Day. Although Labor Day is for celebrating the social and economic contributions of all laborers, we are going to focus on a special kind of laborer — the woman who brings a child into the world.

Lugenia Grider PhotoWe know HOW babies are made, but how does trying to conceive, pregnancy, and new parenthood affect a woman’s body, body image, and sexuality? What happens when a couple can’t conceive? How does the woman’s spouse or partner feel? On the next Oral Fixation I will be joined by Lugenia Grider, women’s health educator and doula, to examine how women experience the changes in their body and how those feelings impact their relationships.

Lugenia is also a strong advocate for breastfeeding, especially among black mothers. Fresh off of celebrating Black Breastfeeding Week with an event at ImaginOn, she will discuss the obstacles that black mothers face and what resources are available in Charlotte to support those who choose to breastfeed.

Finally, we will discuss the FDA’s approval of Flibanserin, also known as the “pink pill”, and what it means (and doesn’t) for women who lack sexual desire — and those that love them. Is it worth getting excited about?
