Today we're going to be looking more at the science angle. It's going to be interesting if you think back to the episode we had with Jaiya, which was very experienced based. It's very interesting the overlap there is between the two, and with next episodes guest, Lawrence Lanoff, also. So we’ve got three episodes around the subject of sex, which I think there’s some great overlap, and it's a lot about the mental game of sex. We'll get more into that later.

A quick note about the new program we launched recently, which is called "Attraction Implant". This program, as I mentioned last episode, is all about action taking and getting people who haven't actually taken the information we've given you in these podcasts, or in products, or wherever you found the information you've been using or you’ve been studying / been learning from; if you haven't actually put that into action and start changing your life, getting the results that we really want you to get, well that’s when you may want to look at "Attraction Implant".

It's a program we've designed to encourage implementing new behaviors for you to actually change, done in micro-steps. In order to go and check that out - I don't want to talk a lot about it because all of the information is pretty much on the product page - you can go to datingskillsreview.com/implant. If you have any questions for me about it, you can just hit me up by email at: [email protected].

Ok…Today's topic is about sex, again. We're going to add a very strong science background to the sexuality topics that we’ve covered before with sexologists like Jaiya, porn stars like Marcus London, and many others over the years we’ve been doing this podcast.

What you're going to find out is that the mind has essential importance in the role of sex. Although we're taught the techniques, and the physical side of it is really important, what today's episode looks at is how important the mind is. How over-powerfully important the mind is in the quality of sex.

Today's guest perspective comes from a study he's done using brain imaging technologies - the functional MRI, fMRI if you know that - which looks at blood flow in the brain. He looks at that with the focus of understanding orgasm. He's been doing this for 30 years and he's got countless, countless images / brain scans behind him to show what lights up in the brain when someone has orgasm, when they’re stimulated by different types of physiology, or mental aspects of sex, different people, how they respond, and so on. He’s got a lot to say about this topic.

Now I won't lie. This is going to be a bit more technical that usual, a bit more 'scien-cy' that usual. You may find it a bit overwhelming, but bear with us because there's some really cool overlaps with a lot of the other stuff we've seen, and it provides that justification; also, some new insights that we haven't talked about before. I also refer to past episodes and bring these subjects up so we can discuss them from a scientific perspective to get some more validation for these things we've previously spoken about.

So, today's guest is Barry Komisaruk, PhD. He's a distinguished professor at Rutgers University. He has dedicated 30 years of his life to exploring the orgasm, most of this via the scans I was just talking about. But also looking at animals and pharmacological studies and other aspects of it, but primarily the image scans.

He's also written two comprehensive books on the subject, notably The Science of Orgasm, and he's published over 100 research studies on the topic. So that's a lot.
