Season 2, Episode 6
Before we get started I need to mention a couple things:
First, the content of this show may not be suitable for young kids. There's no profanity but the topic may not be something you want to expose your kids to. Just a warning.
Second, we had a decent amount of technical issues with this show and unfortunately because of that I had to use a phone recorder. About 20 min into this episode the sound quality changes, my apologies in advance. And also because of this I kept the show concise but there is so much I wish I could share and explore with you. Perhaps another time…
Now on we go!
One of my goals for the #mumboss podcast is to bring up topics that we don't typically share in public but are so vital to our well being. This particular episode feels like the crux of that. There is so much tension around sex as it is - throw a baby or more into the mix and it feels like the sensual side of our world can crumble down pretty quickly. The ripple effect is felt in our marriages, through guilt, shame and frustration. But what if there was another way?
Are you with me? If so, tune in for the next 25 min to Kimberly Johnson and myself take an honest approach to this loaded topic.
Kimberly Ann Johnson is a birth doula, Certified Sexological Bodyworker and near-certified Somatic Experiencing practitioner.
A lifelong yoga student, yoga teacher, and bodyworker she leads workshops throughout Thailand, Malaysia, Brazil, Portugal and the US on the intersection of women's sexuality and spirituality.

What we cover:
- The importance of getting back into the bedroom
- Expanding the definition of sex
- Simple ways to feminize sex so that it is replenishing rather than draining
- Communication through sensation

My biggest takeaway from this show is that sex is energy and we can take that energy back so that it fuels us rather than drains us. I have been practicing some of the tips Kimberly shared and it’s already starting to make a difference in how I approach this very heated, pun intended, topic. Now go have fun!
Until next time...I'm Rachel Maskell and this is the #mumboss podcast.
