Podcast Description:

Natasha Helfer Parker interviews Alisha Worthington, SSW, a sexual educator, on the topic of sexual lubrication. This is a fascinating, educational podcast on such subjects as: How are our bodies designed to engage in sexual pleasure? What is the relationship between arousal and bodily fluids? What are the common myths and misconceptions about lubrication? What types of issues can get in the way of bodily function? What types of lubrication products exist? Which are good for you to use, and which can actually exacerbate problems? How do you define a good quality lube? Which kinds of lubes should you use depending on age, type of sex, use of sex toys or condoms, or even medications one might be taking? Where can you buy good lube?


Alisha Worthington is an LDS Sexual Educator and has contributed to many media resources such as: FamilyShare.com and The Deseret News. She has been a regular contributor on the Radio From Hell show on x96 taking live calls on sex and intimacy and has been a guest on KUTV 2 morning news.
