Let's talk about sex: Interview with Sexologist Dr. Jenn Gunsaullus

Episode 39 of the Make Life Epic podcast features Dr. Jenn Gunsaullus, nationally recognized sociologist and sexologist.

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.

She also 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.
