It’s time for another educational podcast–this time on contraception!
Plus we talk with Patrick Weaver about the recent #DearBrian dust-up, where that pastor from Utah told women to cover up and not show skin on Instagram, like pictures with their newborn babies.
Great discussion with Patrick–and I hope the beginning with Keith was educational too!

Main Segment: Education Time about Birth Control!
We had so many people saying that last week’s podcast on the sexual response cycle was helpful that we decided to do another educational segment about different contraception options!
We handled this like we did in our new books The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex and The Good Guy’s Guide to Great Sex. We give the pros and cons of each method, but we don’t tell you what to do, because it’s ultimately up to you. Some people have moral objections to anything that interferes with fertility, and some have health objections to anything that interferes with her hormones. So let’s look at all the options–because there’s nothing that’s 100% easy and perfect and always works. There are always trade-offs!
I asked in my Instagram stories this week about favourite birth control methods, and I shared some of your responses in the podcast, but I’ll share more on Facebook later today too!

Patrick Weaver Joins Us to Talk about Lust–and How Men Can Be Involved in Change
I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Patrick Weaver on Facebook over the last few months, and he’s been a great voice standing up against abuse and asking men to step up to the plate.
If you don’t follow him on Facebook, you should, because he’s very no-nonsense.
We opened our conversation talking about the #DearBrian tweet from last week, which I “fixed” on Instagram:
Our conversation then turned to how we can get more men speaking up for healthy relationships. We have so many great guys and great commenters on this site, and we have so many great guys in our Patreon as well, but how do we engage with men more? Patrick had some good thoughts.
