TSGS 024: Dr. Michael Bader - The Secret Logic of Sexual Fantasies
"While the desire for sexual pleasure is hard-wired into our bodies, we can only feel sexual arousal if it's psychologically safe to feel it." Explore with us the appeal and misconceptions of sexual fantasies, male pleasure through internet porn and cybersex, and what blocks our psychological arousal. According to Dr. Bader's research, sexual arousal is not automatic or purely physical just because erogenous zones are stimulated. By examining what turns you on, you can start to realize how important the psychological cues and messages are to physical arousal.& Peoples' beliefs can make it difficult to get aroused.& This comes from conditioning by society, family, friends, media, etc., about what's "okay" to turn us on. What helps us get past these difficult feelings? Our programmed beliefs can lead us to shame, guilt, worry, etc. These things are not compatible for maximum sexual arousal. Voila…the mind creates sexual fantasies to carry us past the thoughts blocking our potential sexual pleasure! This episode may lead you to deeper exploration. What are the specific details around your own sexual fantasies? Have you shared the details with anyone? Do you fantasize about men or women more? Do you fantasize about real people or the imagined perfect lover? What message and elegant solution do you believe may be addressed by the specific fantasies that your mind has created? "By exploring the meaning of the sexual fantasies you often get a great look into deeper things that are troubling you."
