“Rev Up Your Sex Drive with Stefani Ruper” the Podcast…or, Stefani Talks Hormones, the Clitoris, and the Best Positions for Women (Yes, the Sex Kind)

 

Last week I had the enormous pleasure of chatting with Caitlin and Mary of the Health Nuts podcast. The topic? Libido. The question? How to enhance it. The answers? Many:

Balance your hormones (often, though not always, easier said than done.) De-stress. Quite chronic exercise. Lift weights. Lose weight if you need to. Gain weight if you need to.

Think about your body better.

Think about sex better.

Love your skin.

Love your vulva.

Demand that your partners love your skin and your vulva, too.

And you can ditch the upside down wheelbarrow, but never let a good old fashion cowgirl or reverse missionary.

Listen for the smart and uproarious time @ The Health Nuts site  or get it straight on iTunes.

(Warning: to be clear, I say the words clitoris and vagina several times and do in fact talk sexual positions, so this podcast is not for the sexually prim or skittish. But we don’t get explicit in that way until the final 20 minutes or so, so you can listen about hormone balance for the first 45 minutes of the podcast if you like.)

  1. Hi Stephanie
    I love what you had to say in this podcast, as I love so much of what you write. Thought it was disappointing that in this case the interviewers seemed intent on reducing it to a ‘tips and tricks’ chat about sex and body image. As such their questions (and awkward laughter) prevented the far-ranging and fascinating conversation about sexuality and fertility that could have been possible. Your perspective and story has such depth and I look forward to hearing that tapped into better in your next interview!

    • Very insightful, Kate. As “health advocates” we often want to – and HAVE to – provide quick, actionable steps to people. But these steps need to be grounded in a firm and profound philosophy, I believe. Thus why I often find myself in interviews rambling on and on – I can’t help but feel like discussing the deeper issues is the most important thing. And I struggle to remember just how important those actionable steps are.

      • Oh and I’m so sorry I spelt you name wrong!! Normally I’m more attentive to such details. If you’re ever in Australia I’d love to know. Kate.

  2. This has nothing to do with your post, but I am hoping to receive some feedback anyway. I have been reading your blog for about six months. I went Paleo 1.5 years ago and have lost about 125 lbs. I am near my ideal weight, never get sick (never had the flu in my life and haven’t even had the sniffles in over two years), am very active. However, I got staph infection on my leg (thought it was a spider bite) about a year ago. I went to the doctor and to make a long story shorter, have taken several rounds of antibiotics, tried every natural, herbal, and strange remedy known to man, but my staph infection is recurring. Every two months or so I get a knot in my armpit or a spot on my thigh or belly that is staph (and it’s really painful). My husband and doctor have never gotten infected, which is strange since my husband’s immune system is not very good due to kidney disease. I am 33 years old and the only medication I take is birth control. I eat extremely clean and the only sugar I consume is fruit a few times a week. I walk 5 miles a day, do kettlebells and body weight workouts, plus lots of gardening and physical activiites with my daughter. I use natural cleaners in my house and make my own deodarant with alcohol and tea tree oil. I can’t figure out why this stuff keeps coming back and how to get rid of it. One doctor told me that some people never get rid of it and only become resistant to the antibiotics. I was just wondering if anyone out there has ever heard of anything like this. I’m frustrated!!!!

    • That’s incredible. I would focus on immune system support as much as possible. Sarah Ballantyne’s book “The Paleo Appraoch” is about autoimmune disease but in being so is highly educational about the immune system in general. I would also consider flipping through Paul Jaminet’s blog as I consider him the most expert expert we have on recurring infections.

      I know that’s not a huge amount of help, but the immune system is not my speciality and I would prefer to send you to some resources and people I trust who can help you better.

      • Thank you!

      • Thank you!
