Sex Talk: Interview with Sexologist Dr. Jenn Gunsaullus

Let’s talk about sex!

Today on our show I talk to nationally recognized sociologist and sexologist, Dr. Jenn Gunsaullus.

She is a frequent speaker about sexual empowerment, healthy relationships, body image, erotic play, sexual health, and mindful sex. She has presented two TEDx Talks, is a writer on sex and relationships, and a recurring intimacy expert on the San Diego morning news. Dr. Jenn is also an active philanthropist and leader within the Women Give San Diego donor’s circle. She has over a million hits on her In the Den with Dr. Jenn YouTube video series.

Dr. Jenn was a blast to interview and I think you’ll really like this episode. You’ll see how a self-professed “good Catholic Girl” from Pennsylvania became the foremost expert in mindful sex.   

See below for a few of the questions I asked her.  Luckily, she talks as fast as I do so we able to go off on several tangents without making the show run too long.

Questions:

  1. What’s your background?
  2. Where did you grow up/who was your favorite high school teacher and why?
  3. Tell us about your work- who do you work with & what do you help them with, etc? 
  4. What are the biggest misconceptions about sex we all have?
  5. What are the biggest problems/issues you help people with?
  6. What are the biggest keys to a great sex life?
  7. Any specific advice for guys?
  8. What is your ‘why’?  Why do you do what you do? What inspires you?
  9. What would you tell the 25 year old version of yourself?
  10. You are an incredibly strong, powerful woman, what life advice would you give to other women?
