More From My Conversation With Emily Morse About Her Book Smart Sex

Dr. Emily Morse never imagined she would become a leading voice in the world of sex education and pleasure when she first embarked on her journey as a journalist and documentary filmmaker. Emily was busy exploring the secrets and stories of the people of San Francisco through her cable access show when a chance encounter with an intern introduced her to podcasting. With a passion for the audio format, Emily decided to take the plunge, diving headfirst into the realm of podcasting with Sex with Emily.

As she tackled the sensitive topic of sex and pleasure, she began to uncover the pervasive presence of shame and fear in our society. Driven by her own experiences and the countless stories she heard from her listeners, Emily set out to empower people to take control of their own pleasure and understand their sexual needs, ultimately leading to the creation of her book, Smart Sex: How to Boost Your Sex IQ and Own Your Pleasure.

Five Pillars of Sex IQ

Smart Sex by Dr. Emily Morse for Passion Struck recommended books

The five pillars of Sex IQ include embodiment, health, collaboration/communication, self-knowledge, and self-acceptance. Embodiment focuses on being present and connected with oneself during sex, while health encompasses both physical and mental well-being. Collaboration and communication are key in forming deeper intimacy with partners, and self-knowledge involves understanding personal arousal patterns. Lastly, self-acceptance means embracing oneself wholly, including one’s sexuality and desires.

Dr. Emily Morse discussed these five pillars, explaining that each plays a crucial role in achieving a fulfilling sex life. For example, through embodiment, an individual is more in tune with their body and desires, thus setting the stage for improved communication with their partner. By acknowledging the importance of each pillar and actively working to strengthen them, individuals can create a more well-rounded understanding of their sexuality and cultivate a more satisfying sex life.

The Impact of Shame on Sex and Relationships
Shame can have a significant effect on an individual’s sex life and relationships, as it can deter open communication about desires, create insecurities, and hinder intimacy. This emotion can manifest itself in many ways, such as body shame, feelings of inadequacy, or guilt around personal pleasure. It is essential to address and overcome shame in order to have a fulfilling sexual experience and build stronger connections with partners.

During the interview, Dr. Emily Morse shared her insights on how shame affects people’s ability to talk about sex and feel comfortable in their bodies. She emphasized the importance of shedding light on our shame and discussing it openly to help dismantle it. By promoting open conversation and reframing how we view pleasure, particularly masturbation, we can take steps toward building sexual confidence and reclaiming our sense of self.
