A Four-Part Series with Dr. Darrel Ray

Months of scheduling and interviews with Dr. Darrel Ray went into this four-part series that we are both very proud of. And I quote, "You know, Margaux, this is the first time in my entire career that I've been able to talk about exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much for letting me bring these things to light," by Dr. D, Ray. I didn't really know how to respond, as I am equally as grateful to hear about his life's passion and be educated on things that are just not mainstream enough; the thanking went on and on

The Power of Active Listening

This is a brief exposure to the power of active listening and an overview of all the nuances that make a good listener. This is part one of a four-part series because we're going to take a deeper look into the details of each component to understand why it's important to even identify them in the first place. Active listening is a skill that isn't taught to us growing up, but it takes effort and hard work to utilize to the best of our advantage. Here's what you can expect from this episode: It is a skill, requires hard work

The Importance of Social Interaction and the COVID-19 Effect

We all know that COVID-19 has affected everyone’s lives differently—some for the better, some for the worse—but this effect is a common thread throughout the whole of human species. There are lots of threads that connect us together, but this one has slapped us in the face and forced us to see it. My heart sinks as I write this and I think about how easy it is to compare our struggles against our neighbors, but does this prove to be productive? Since COVID, our opportunities to engage in social interaction have decreased exponentially depending on our locality, immune systems,

Attachment theory suggests that the bonds that we form as children with our primary caretakers, set the tone for how we will develop emotionally intimate relationships as adults. John Bowlby, a psychoanalyst, attempted at understanding the intense distress that infants experienced after being separated from their parents. He deducted his research down to a motivational system which he called the attachment behavioral system--"designed" by natural selection to regulate proximity to an attachment figure (parent).

The Nuances of Consent

Oh, what a beautiful topic consent is. I'm sure that every single sexy human who is reading this post has had their consent violated. Sometimes, with their knowledge, other times without. Maybe there's a person reading this who's violated someone else's consent, and maybe (hopefully), they repaired these actions and have pursued a more genuine and empathetic way of approaching someone else's personal boundaries. Who knows? I'm just shooting in the dark here.. ;D So, anyway, did you know that consent isn't just about saying yes? Because, sometimes, yes doesn't always mean yes. Did I just blow your mind? (I

Sexuality vs. Sex

Can we talk about this for a minute? Because there's a huge difference between the two. Why do I say sexuality vs. sex? It seems pretty simple to some, but for others, I feel like the thought of their sexuality rarely ever even crosses their minds. I can only say that because this is exactly how my brain functioned and approached all things "sexy" before I took the extra step to understand my true desires, fantasies, and dislikes.
