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!
