Sexuality and Happiness is a topic I have not discussed on the More Happy Life podcast. I have wanted to for quite some time, but I wanted to introduce it with the right person and I think Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife is the right person. This podcast talks about all things from the foundation of positive psychology research. I think positive sexuality is a really powerful topic for the listeners to hear about and to discuss on social media after hearing this episode. There is so much negativity around sexuality and desire (not just in conservative cultures like the LDS culture) and I am excited to shed a positive light on this topic with an expert. Listen today as we discuss the positive side of sex and our own innate sexuality.Some of the topics we cover:

  • How our sexuality is linked to our wellbeing
  • Why sex can be such a taboo topic and how to make it easier to have safe conversations about it
  • What can help parents in talking to their children about their sexuality and sex
  • Why it’s so important to work out your own relationship with your own sexuality as a parent
  • The concept of human embodiment and pleasure
  • How people who believe they are addicted to sexuality can switch from victim to chooser
  • Not just the list of “DON’Ts but also a list of DO’s
  • How to view your sexuality as a conservative single who sees themselves as older and not able to express their sexuality outside of marriage
