Welcome to the podcast! Today I’m very excited to be joined by Galen Fous, MTP. Galen is considered one of America’s leading sex educators, psychotherapists & sex researchers on understanding the unconscious psychological dynamics of kink, fetish and D/s-BDSM sexuality.
Galen is the author of two books: “Decoding Your Kink – Guide to Explore, Share and Enjoy Your Wildest Sexual Desires” and “The Sharp Edge of Love – Extreme Sex, Mythic Passion, Primal Intensity.”
He regularly presents at sexuality related conferences, lectures at universities and grad schools on sex-positive topics, and has been interviewed in numerous media for his innovative views on conscious sexuality and the nature of fetish sexuality
Galen frames his scholarly understandings of sexual identity and expression in the contexts of myth, history and the mediating power of social and psychological constructions. His contributions are made more powerful with his compelling sense of the contemporary and rapid shifts in what is and isn’t sexually taboo.
As a therapist, Galen helps his clients shift from compulsive, dishonest, risky sexual behaviors to authentic sexual expression, and heal from the decades of fear, shame and judgments that held their authentic desire back.

Welcome to the Women In-Depth Podcast! This week I’m delighted to be joined by Laurel Moll, who is a lifestyle writer, dancer, fitness instructor, and co-owner of the inspirational t-shirt company Golden Rhino.
She was born and raised in Florida and has also spent several years living and working in New York City. Her writing has been featured in The Huffington Post, VitaMix Blog, Quiet Revolution, TinyBuddha, Mind Body Green, and more.
Laurel's latest book, Following Fear: How I Faced 30 Fears and Learned to Trust the Unknown, is a memoir about how the curious events of the summer of 2013 inspired Laurel to stop following her bliss and start following her fear. This collection of intimate short stories about facing 30 of her biggest fears shares the journey of learning to trust everything that happens—the wins, the heartbreaks, the embarrassments, the deepest disappointments—and to find safety in the unknown.
Following Fear offers a fresh approach. Instead of encouraging readers to get rid of their fears and be fearless, it looks more at what happens when you are willing to take yourself to the edge; see what’s underneath the fears; and learn to love the experience of growing through your discomfort.
It shares its unique message by telling 30 honest and vulnerable experiences of one woman who never expected to become the brave one.
