You don’t worry about having a bathtub masturbation addiction. Leah answers a listener’s questions about whether she has a porn addiction, and why she can’t orgasm with her husband. She talks about identifying the function of porn, not taking on shame, and navigating a relationship agreement around it.

Bookmark moments:

  • 2:12 - “Am I normal?” A listener calls in with two inter-related questions: is it normal to be unable to orgasm through intercourse with my husband, and is it normal that I only can with porn?
  • 4:11 - Leah responds to the listener. Difficulty orgasming during is a thing that many women experience. There can be physical or mental causes.
  • 6:17 - How do you identify techniques that deliver pleasure if you don’t know what you want or what is possible?
  • 8:17 - Leah calls back to a recent share about being shamed by our partner. This creates an experience of break in trust.
  • 9:28 - Is there *actually* such a thing as porn addiction? We do a fact check.
  • 10:50 - Check in with how porn functions in your relationship. Is it what you need to physiologically relax?
  • 12:16 - Make a relationship agreement that supports you on how to navigate it—without being responsible for your partner or making yourself small.
  • 15:48- PJ Parties for Grownups!
