Somatic sex therapist Charna Cassell joins me to discuss trauma and sex. This one gets quite full-on in places and could be triggering. We chat about childhood trauma, windows of tolerance, numbing, hyper-arousal, the six F’s, being gay, sexual self-medication, attachment, what a “healthy” sex drive is, BDSM, Peter Levine, practical tools for healing, meditation and trauma, celibacy, and top tips for a great sex life. Charna also leads an exercise to help if you get triggered during the episode. A juicy, deep and practical one.
