The Reality of Porn with Dr. Jakob Pastoetter

Few topics are more controversial than Porn. This is because Porn stands so much in the intersection not only of so many different points of view what sexuality should be about but also of what constitutes a visual medium and a piece of art in general, what are their messages, and how do they exert influence on our real world experiences and interactions. As with many other things, you can only try to approach from different angles to get an idea of what constitutes the “Reality of Porn” for different people, rather than to decide once and for all what it “really” is.

In this show German Sexologist Dr. Jakob Pastoetter will answer these five questions to get a clearer picture:

1) what makes porn porn;
2) tell us about ethical porn;
3) is porn addictive;
4) what are the harmful effects of porn;
5) what are porn perception differences between men and women – preferences/ views/ attitudes;
6) my partner watches a lot of porn. Is this cheating?

About the Guest: Dr. Jakob Pastoetter

Dr. Jakob Pastoetter started as a very spiritually interested teenager, delved then into cultural anthropology, developed a taste for sexology while doing research at the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction, wrote his doctoral thesis on Hardcore Pornography and the Constrain to Self-constrain Mechanisms of the Civilizing Process it is entangled in – Question: Why were Sexually Explicit Pictures only developed as an Entertainment Medium in the Postindustrialized Western societies. He got his Ph.D. in Education at Humboldt University, and finally became an ABS certified Clinical Sexologist at the American Academy of Clinical Sexology in 2003, teaching and tutoring there since 15 years while doing research, media work, and sex, couple, and life counseling as President of the German Society for Social Scientific Sexuality Research. He started organizing the prestigious biannual conferences of DGSS. Since 2014 he also provided sexual counseling for bi-national couples in English and German via Skype.

His websites are www.sexologie.org, www.sexualitaetleben.de, https://www.facebook.com/erosarising/, https://twitter.com/jpastoetter, and soon www.liveyoursexuality.com.

Right now he is the Editor of a German-English book series “Sexuality Crosswise” with Springer Science and is writing a book on “The Development of German Sex Education”.

The Inability to Receive: The Story Inside The Story

In this episode, Clinical Sexologist Dr. Martha Tara Lee of Eros Coaching shares two personal stories involving her mother to facilitate this discussion on the effects on our inability to receive. She also reflects on the dynamics of mother-daughter or parent-child dynamics that play out. These stories are intended to be used for your own reflection on whether you have difficulties in receiving in your life, and are “killing love”. Perhaps you are in a hurry to get things done, that you take charge, and dismiss, overrule and dominate over others in your life? Listen to these personal stories and reflect so you can claim a life of love and power.

Warrior Woman - A Path Away from Shame Toward Power

Warrior Woman - A Path Away from Shame Toward Power

We are living in extraordinary times. On both the material and spiritual level, there is a sense of things in flux. Our world feels overwhelming right now, doesn’t it? What are we to do, in this climate that is sometimes agressive, often separated from spirit, with very real risks in play?

This transformation calls to all of us. You have a tremendous amount of power and there is much you can do to be physically and spiritually ready for resilience. It sometimes feels like there is something blocking your power though, doesn’t it?

Very often, what blocks us is shame, and the value in holding on to shame is to try to assert control over our ability to belong. On the path of the Warrior Woman, then, the fight has to be in us and for us first before it can be for the world. The Warrior Woman belongs to herself first, and so releases shame and reclaims her power.

A warrior is strong, brave, courageous, and powerful. She risks losing things, burning bridges. A warrior risks getting hurt. But, she takes those risks because what she’s fighting against precludes the healthy existence of what she’s fighting for.

Do you value yourself enough to take those risks on your own behalf?

The fight is for YOU – for yourself, for your right to the best life for you, for space to flourish and for the peace and pleasure that you deserve.

About the Guest: Sarah Martin
