As we conclude our three-part series of sex talks with Kara Haug, we look at the future of sex: will the next generation be able to achieve intimacy or has our reliance on technology handicapped them somehow? Will sex dolls take the place of living partners in an age when you can marry an online avatar? The future, perhaps, isn't as gloomy as it may seem, as Kara tries to show us a way to teach our kids to obtain not only intimacy, but agency.

As our three-part series continues, we uncork a vastly superior bottle to the last one, the 2013 Gloria Ferrer Carneros Pinot Noir, and get down to some serious sex business. Kara offers up her opinions on the advantages of masturbation, why marriage went from a Biblical Model to a Victorian Model (and how hard it is to say which one is worse) to exposing the truth of The Enormous Clitoris.

In the first of our three-part series of Sex Talks, we meet Kara Haug, nationally recognized sex educator and an expert on spirituality's relation to sexuality. Kara's perspective on removing the shame and sin from sex has made her unique in her field and among her peers. Though our bottle of Viano Chardonnay is truly mediocre, the conversation is anything but, swerving from the necessity of masturbation to the idea that God wants you to have an orgasm. We break our own rule about never discussing religion on the pod because...sex. Who knew?

Just when we planned on talking about the challenges of taking kids on vacation, Christine commandeers the podcast and takes a left-hand turn, putting JT in the hot seat about his attempted-rock-star past. Join us as JT spills the goods about the band's early days in LA, signing with Atlantic Records, life on the road, and the ultimate lesson about trying to make the big time. And yes, as un-rock as it may sound, Glutenberg is a gluten-free beer we picked up at Trader Joes. Same amount of alcohol, though, so the rock is still intact.

What do you do to relieve the stress? Do you set aside time to take care of yourself? We do, as the copious amounts of wine will testify. But pounding a bottle of your favorite bubbly, like this insanely value-priced Champagne Ernest Rapaneau, does not constitute an entire self care regimen, unless you consider a hangover to be "self care." In this episode, Christine & JT - two professional-grade hedonists - give you some tips on how to put yourself first from time to time. Because everyone wants you to stop being a dick. Seriously.
