S2E2. How To Creatively and Safely Explore Sex, Love and Relationships w/ Jared Matthew Weiss
Manage episode 233002101 series 2413188
Jared Matthew Weiss is on a mission to create safety and security when it comes to relationships and sex. The founder of Touchpoint Townhall, a podcast and social experiment taking place in New York City, JMW is all about creating a safe space to discuss what you are experiencing and exploring with your sexuality.
As creatives, when we feel empowered to create the things that are in our heart, we feel free, and the same goes when we are in bed with another person. JMW creates a space where people can express their thoughts and feelings and create an intentional and conscious decision to explore ongoing conversations with your partner.
On this episode, we explore the paradox between safety between partners and exploring the unknown, embracing your spontaneity while still finding security, and which questions to ask when defining your relationship. When you are able to talk openly about what you and your partner are experiencing and exploring, you can transcend your physical identity and hold space for yourself and others.
It is possible to gain permission to be whoever you want to be by finding a place where you are able to listen to other people. By opening these conversations you can explore who you truly are in bed, understand how you express yourself and learn what is true to you. It is time to harness your self-expression into sexual freedom with the help of JMW.
