  • Introducing The Me Spot Podcast

    Feb 23 2021

    HEY, SISTER…LET ME ASK YOU:

    Have you ever felt less than the sexy, inner badass babe you really are?
    Do you sometimes wonder is this all there is for me?
    Have you ever thought to yourself, “I’d love to feel like I can bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan and never ever let me forget I’m a total badass!”

    It’s time to cut through the shame, blame, and shoulds that past partners, the media, and your upbringing have convinced you are warranted because that’s all bullshit!

    On The ME Spot Podcast, you will enjoy frank, unfiltered, bite-sized discussions about real-life womanhood, overcoming real-life struggles, and making your real life SEXY!

    Not only will I share anonymous patient stories on the show, but I’m also gonna bring the lights down and get vulnerable about my own personal stories and struggles with body image and weight, infertility, sex, and so, so, much more…

    All with the intention of helping YOU realize that honey, you’re not alone…

    It’s time for EVERY woman to personally redefine her sense of values… her sense of sexy… and her sense of self.

    Now while we will be addressing serious subjects, this is NOT a how-to series or a place to learn what you’re doing wrong. Bunk that bullshit!

     

    If you’re open-minded, curious about sex, sexuality, and a wide array of women’s self-esteem issues, this is the show for you!

    The ME Spot is meant to be a fun, lighthearted, self empowerment vitamin for your day — to learn all kinds of new things while hanging out with your newest Dr. B-FF, who just happens to have a medical degree.

    And if we haven’t met before, you’ll quickly learn that I’m not your mother’s OB/GYN.

    Which reminds me… this podcast is marked explicit due to mature subject matter and the occasional f-bomb, so it’s not recommended for the ears of children or those who are easily offended.

It's Dr. B. and I'm hoping you are feeling very fine today.  So I always think of a little song about this. It goes Baby, you can drive my car. Baby, you can drive by car. So I want to talk about sex drive. Because no one ever says Baby, you can drive by sex. It's also known in the world as libido. And it's quite understood that I don't like the word libido, because I think it does a disservice to women.  But the big thing is, is what is normal? What is my sex drive supposed to be? Am I supposed to drive 55? I supposed to drive in a school zone? What is my sex drive doing these days? So you know, I have women that come in all the time for this question. They say my sex drive is off. And I don't know how a sex drive can be off. Because there's days where, you know, I don't feel like I feel like my normal self or I have a headache or days you don't poop for four days, and you are constipated. I mean, sex drive is not something that is on cruise control, and always going, it will change and vary. But let's go through what some of the norms should look a little bit like.  So when a woman comes into my office and says, I have low sex drive, or my sex drive has changed. The first question I say is, Hmm, what do you think about during sex? And this is a big question. Because she's kind of looking at me, like, why, like, you know, like, Christian Grey or something? And I'm like, No, like, What are you thinking about? Cuz here's the answer. It's a trick. She shouldn't be thinking about anything she should be feeling, and experimenting and experiencing, not thinking. So as a little bit of a trick question. Now, y'all know my trick. I guess I had to throw it out the window. But what are you thinking about during sex? If you're thinking during sex, it's probably contributing to a lower sex drive, because sex isn't meant to be up in your thinking woman's brain, it's meant to be down in your base animal instincts.  So sex drive, you know, people ask me, well, how often should I be having sex with my partner? All right, well, there's no should. I don't like should’s. In medicine, there's no should and just in life, there's not a should world. But the average adult, the average adult gets about 54 sexcapades per year. So once a week, and this is according to some studies, from the archives of sexual behavior, okay, so now also, that doesn't mean it's good sex, though. So people who have sex at least once a week, are happier in their relationships than people who get it less often. But people who had it more than once a week weren't, like, happier. So it's kind of like you couldn't, you couldn't overdo it, but you weren't gonna get like a super boost, because you had sex every day.  Now, of course, we know that in the beginning of a relationship, when all those happy hormones are going on, you may have sex six, seven times a day. And then as the relationship progresses, it may settle into a nice, comfortable two to three times per month. Now, ironically, same sex partners have more sex, and are more satisfied with sex, than the opposite sex partners. So a little tidbit ...

If both partners are evolving in tandem discord, it causes sexual tension.If there's verbal abuse, or if there’s no sexual chemistry anymore, recognize that it's not your sexual desire, it is the relationship itself. Libido, or our sex drives involve many, many layers of mindset, physiology, biology, relationships. It is really, really hard to feel sexy with a man (or a woman) who is taking advantage of you Your next best steps... Be sure to subscribe from your favorite podcast app. Come join me in The ME Spot Community! It’s FREE & a great safe place to get your intimate questions answered by me directly, and to meet other marvelous members as well!  http://TheMeSpotPodcast.com   TRANSCRIPT  Hello, my friend, Dr. B here checking in with you. And I hope you are feeling stupendous today. So I want to get into something really interesting and really essential for our sex lives. And that is discovering the Naked Truth of relationship discord in your sex life, which is a really big way of saying, honey, we can't fix your sexy if you got problems going on with your one and only.  So one of the first questions I asked, every woman that comes in sees me with any kind of questionable sex concern is, what are you thinking about during sex? It's kind of a strange question. But it really can tell me a lot about the status of the relationship. So if I have a woman that says, Oh, I, I was making my grocery list in my head thinking I had to do this. And we were out of cottage cheese, and I need to get this. And I'm thinking, Oh, boy, we got some problems. If a woman is really into shoes, no, ma'am, there, I'm right there. And I still can't get off different topics. And it's not a problem with the relationship. So let's face it, sometimes the problem is not you. So I want to burst through a big block to great sex, people change, relationships change, and you may not be feeling it for your lover for obvious sometimes also, secret reasons. The sex, it may be bad. And I'm not talking like wrong whole bad. I'm just talking empty, unfeeling and sad. So if both partners are evolving in tandem discord causes sexual tension. And this happens a lot, especially after a relationship over time.  So if the other person say isn't fulfilling their marriage vows if you're married and if they're cheating on you, or they're financially erratic, they're disrespectful, demanding too much if you're exhausted, because you feel like you're doing all the work around the house. If there's verbal abuse, or if the sexual chemistry is not there anymore, we need to recognize that it's not your sexual desire is the relationship itself. And this is a huge step to getting your feelings of sexy back. Now, this may also be a little controversial, because you know what we say well, but our partners are going through their own things as well. And that's true.  Now we're gonna get into what I like to call the Seven Deadly Sins of your partners. And this is based on the seven deadly sins and the Bible, but we just kind of changed them up a little bit. So we're going to get through all of these. But first, I want to talk about boosting your confidence to have sex again, feel sexual again, and doing the right thing for you. So one of the things I hate hearing is when women come into the office and say, I have a really low libido, they don't always say it quite like that, but that's why I say I have a really low libido. And a lot of women tell me this, they come in the office, alright, and I'm not even sure we all really know what libido really is.  So let me get into a little historical lesson for you. This comes from dear Sigmund Freud. And he popularized the term libido from the selected papers on hysteria. Now, keep in mind that 100 years ago, 150 years ago, all women's issues were classified as hysteria. That's where we get the word hysterical from. It's also where we get the word hysterectomy from. So histor- has to do with women. So if you were any kind of a woman that had a problem, you were probably hysterical. Now, the Latin derivative of the word of libido comes from libido. That means desire...

So smart and so relatable

I love this podcast! It covers a lot of questions I've had but have been a little embarrassed to ask. And Dr. Bartos talks about these topics in such a fun, engaging way. It's like listening to a good friend, who also happens to be a board-certified OB-GYN.

Like Chatting with Your Bestie

I love this podcast! Dr. B is so approachable and she talks about all the things you'd like to ask a doctor but are too embarrassed to bring up. It has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts and a weekly must-listen.
