Have you Heard of Sex Nerd Sandra? Go! Listen!


I know I’ve posted about Sex Nerd Sandra on here before, but her work and podcast are soooo good, I want to make sure you all know about her. Sandra Daugherty is the host of Sex Nerd Sandra podcast on Nerdist.com.sandra2

Sandra is smart, curious, funny and real. One of my favorite parts about working in the sex education realm is watching and listening to people feel comfortable being themselves. It’s not something only sex ed peeps do, but people in general. When people feel comfortable being themselves, they can make some beautiful, honest work. And that is what Sandra does on her podcast.

One of my favorite parts about the podcast is that Sandra lets loose and allows herself to be goofy, shy, flirty, questioning etc. All those things that many people are afraid to be in a public space, such as a podcast. Mad props!

So that’s it. Go… listen… learn and have fun learning!

External Prostate Massage: I Got Cock Blocked


A little more detail about prostate massaging! Sex Nerd Sandra is a smart lady.

I’m both embarrassed and thrilled to find out this week that I’ve been cock blocked, quite literally, in my understanding of external prostate massage.

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with genitals. Or more specifically, their underlying structures. Recent time spent staring at Planned Parenthood’s diagrams (so detailed!) mixed with enlightening sex conference lectures have inspired me to take some of the fuzzier (read: enigmatic) pleasure areas and really flesh them out. 

One spot of confusion has been the male perineum. That is, the space between the scrotum and the anal opening. The way I’ve always heard it, to pleasure the prostate externally, just “push up on the area behind the balls.” I’ve experimented pressing on this area on partners many a-time, with little more reaction than a shrug.
