Today’s cultural narratives have significant impacts on how we view ourselves, our relationships and gender roles. Listen to today’s show to understand how culture may be influencing the male narrative and what that can mean for men and women alike.

In this episode, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Male dominance throughout history and how that has changed and impacted relationships
  • The impact that narratives around male sexuality have on both men and women
  • Setting the conditions to cultivate desire in your relationship
  • Stephen’s myths of modern male and female sexuality
  • Understanding you don’t have to ‘be’ something in particular according to what culture tells you
  • And much more!
