Dr Ramani and Silvia Saige dismantle the dream of fairy tale love! Not because it doesn't exist, but because those who look for it get the WORST possible outcomes. We explain why.

Part of our ongoing look at HOW TO PICK A PARTNER. We break down the dream of "fairy tale romance" from all angles – the excuses it causes us to make for our partners and ourselves, the ways it creates damaging codependencies, and the unhelpful judgments it convinces us to make about potential lovers. Plus, where does this dream come from, and what can we do to change it?

If you enjoyed our GAY 101 episode, please write in to let us know what other "Intro Courses" you want! Blowjobs, narcissism, polyamory, periods, tantra – no topic is too taboo, too basic or too complicated for Sexual Disorientation. Write the show, ALWAYS ANONYMOUS: sexualdisorientation@gmail.com

Dr Ramani and Silvia Saige welcome "guest professors": 2-time Gay Porn Performer of the Year, Wesley Woods, and the co-hosts of Gay vs Straight Bitches, Rachel Paulson and Lindsey McKeon!

This episode is everything you ever wanted to know about homosexuality but were afraid to ask. Whether you're woke AF or a traditionalist evangelical, we have answers to your questions, like:

  • "How do lesbians 'have sex'?"
  • "Are gay men always either a 'top' or a 'bottom'?"
  • "What does 'heteronormative' mean?"
  • "Do gay relationships always have a masculine partner and a feminine partner?"
  • "What about the view that homosexuality is 'unnatural'?"
  • "Does sexuality affect your view on monogamy?"
  • "Can gay people have non-sexual friendships with the same sex?"
  • "What 'makes" someone gay? Can you be gay without having gay sex, or can you be straight while having gay sex?"
  • "Do straight people watch gay porn?"

And tons more! Because the only step to understanding is open and honest communication. Write us with ALWAYS-anonymous suggestions for future 101 segments: sexualdisorientation@gmail.com

Dr Ramani recaps SxSW, where a capacity crowd piled in to hear her talk about narcissism. Speaking of, Ramani and co-host Silvia Saige dissect Donald Trump, Stormy Daniels, and the public's response.

This scandal is the perfect prism to examine how specific men and society at large turn women into objects. Ramani worries the national conversation may exacerbate the problem, not solve it. They both acknowledge and try to unpack the complicated morality and values issues tied up in Trump/Stormy, regardless of political bent. And there's an even more frustrating talk to be had about the place and purpose of porn.

Plus, Ramani explains the concept of Love Bombing as she cracks into her Narcissist Handbook.

Finally, a listener suggestion leads Dr Ramani and Silvia to announce Sexual Disorientation's new occasional series: DISORIENTATION 101. Answering all the most callous, offensive questions about taboo and simple topics alike. First up: HOMOSEXUALITY 101. Stay tuned!
