In Episode 25 of Let’s Talk Wellness Now, Dr. Deb invites Susan Bratton, Sex Advisor To Millions, onto the podcast for a raw, exhilarating , action packed conversation about her upcoming Summit (sexualvitalitysummit.com), and a variety of sexual health related topics ranging from self love, Susan’s 30 Day Masturbation Challenge and choosing the right vibrator, to hormones, pornography, footgasms and the health benefits of semen!
My husband and I just went to Europe for a month – and I said to him I’m going to try to masturbate everyday… and I don’t want you to worry that that’s going to cut into our lovemaking time… my sex life is not a fixed pie – my sex life is an abundant, overflowing cup of sexuality… And you’re welcome to masturbate along with me, as much as you want… And I’m a shy masturbator… I like to masturbate right when I wake up… But what I really like – he’s goes off and gets coffee and I masturbate while I’m waiting for him to bring me coffee in bed!
Dr. Deb and Susan discuss the value of self acceptance and choosing to love your own flesh – regardless of the circumstances. Susan brings up the idea of having a Goddess mindset, and the value it can bring to your overall (and sexual) happiness.
We can come from a place of self love and acceptance, or we can come from a place of self flagellation and disappointment. If we take on the mantle of being a Goddess, if we hold ourselves like Goddesses, if we connect ourselves to the earth – we ground ourselves… The Goddess loves herself – she takes her pleasure. She opens and allows, she receives, she feels rooted to nature, she is expansive and forgiving, she is graceful and elegant. She is in the mind of pleasure and joy. She is not worried about other people, she is focused on the moment, and being present with herself and her partner.
Susan discusses tips and techniques for better masturbation and overall sexual experiences. She discusses oils, vibrators, vulva and penis massages, and the value of utilizing different toys for different forms of pleasure.
I realized that most women only have maybe 1 vibrator, or 2 vibrators – they’re not really using them. And then I thought, boy, if we all thought about having as many vibrators as shoes – or having half as many shoes, and twice as many vibrators!

I have made it my mission to aid anyone who wants the kind of lovemaking that improves with age.”
