We receive pressure from all directions to be sexy and then from other directions not to be too sexy and it is incredibly confusing and irritating and frustrating. It can create a very stressful situation for women and men in our daily lives. Its crazy for us to try to figure out how to live our lives to be happy and keep others happy – I’ve found the biggest issues come in making others happy. But that is easily the topic for at least one or more other show.
In this podcast we’ll focus on the concept of not worrying about fitting into the erroneous mold of another person’s or society’s idea of “sexy” but creating our own “brand of sexy”. For that discussion, I’ve invited Dr Susan Edelman to be my guest on the show. She’s a psychiatrist and an Adjunct Clinical Associate Professor at Stanford. I’ll share some of her comments below.

Some Thoughts from Dr Susan Edelman –
Over the last 30 years of private practice, I’ve realized a dangerous trend. Despite advances, women across generations still struggle with having a voice and standing up for themselves. We think it’s getting better, but it’s not.
That same struggle is why women don’t get what they want from men. It’s painful, and in many cases, it stops them from getting what they want out of life.
My patients deserve better — and this is not just a problem for my wonderful patients. It’s global, and we need a new revolution to create change.
That’s why I wrote my book, Be Your Own Brand of Sexy: A New Sexual Revolution for Women. I want to support the women who will never walk through my office door yet need a helping hand.
