Pillow Talk: The Psychology of Erotica with artist and therapist Pitaru

We're bringing sexy back, as artist and psychotherapist Pitaru joins Debonee to discuss erotic photography, and the psychology behind the process and the images.  This Valentine's Day, we'll talk about the gift of intimacy, the metaphor of being seen, creating a story and the preparation process for a shoot.  You'll learn how her therapeutic background influences her work in the studio and tricks to turning on the sexy.
Listen to explore the differences between erotica and pornography, sexism in art, beauty versus body parts, and the importance of the Personal.

You'll learn where Pitaru gets that sexy accent, (and how it affects her clients), where her own limits lie, and her fantasy subject.

Innersexions: "Sex Addiction on Film: Don Jon & Thanks for Sharing" with Sex Addiction Expert Bill Herring

This podcast explores the intersections between queer issues, sex, faith and art – in any combination of two.  Expert guests will offer commentary and insight, as well as opening new questions to examine the rich diversity and misperceptions within various permutations of our topics.  Each element alone – LGBTQ, sex, faith, or art, presents controversial possibilities, so join us as we jump into the fray by pairing them to elicit interesting and memorable conversations.

In this episode, Debonee talks with sex addiction expert, and certified sex addiction therapist, Bill Herring, about problematic sexual behavior, and the insights from the films, "Don Jon", and "Thanks for Sharing".  How accurate or helpful are the portrayals?  How do we even define 'sex addiction'?  What causes people to act out?  Young men who pledge to refrain from masturbation...??  All this and more, right here, on Innersexions.
