When his book Die Fat Or Get Tough came out, it told the truth about getting in shape that people weren't trying to hear. And that's really only one example of how Steve Siebold's work boldly addresses mental toughness in a visceral, yet engaging way that we as men can genuinely relate to. Since Steve's name came up on the show a couple of episodes ago, I reached out to him and decided to have him on to go over his latest work, along with some of his golden gems from past books. Have you ever noticed that whether it's in sports or in life, the one with the most mental toughness generally wins? Certainly, with all of the craziness happening in the world today, mental toughness is necessary just to hang in there. But what does having mental toughness even mean? And how does it directly affect your success on the field, in your career and yes...in your relationships with women? How does 'microwave thinking' defeat mental toughness? What does all of this have to do with financial success? In what ways are we being suckers in life, perhaps without even realizing it? How can mental toughness transform you into a master negotiator? What is the relationship between grit and mental toughness? How can we raise our kids to be gritty, and what makes mental toughness so crucial to successful relationships?

My guest co-host believes men not only are as emotional as women are, but it's important to our masculinity to feel deeply. Don't get that confused with being an 'emo' soy boy, however. For starters, GS describes what a heart-felt relationship with a modern woman who is strong yet feminine looks like. But wait...who is this 'strong woman' anyway, and what is she like? Whoever she is, she's only going to be powerfully attracted to a masculine man. So to that end, GS outlines three ways to be fully masculine without being an unemotional robot about it. How can we respond to women rather than merely reacting? What do women mean when they say they want a man who 'listens'? And what in the world is being 'emotionally available' all about? Why do women start nagging us? And what's even scarier in a relationship than that, although few of us even recognize it when it's happening? How does providing true safety to a woman contrast with the 'alpha model' of masculinity? How can men be emotional while still being conscious of how they're affecting feminine attraction and devotion? So do real men shed tears, or not? And what does that have to do with the larger question of how to be a man of depth?

So what's your personality type? Introverted? Extroverted? Thinking vs. feeling? Whatever...because my guest believes all the Enneagram and Myers-Briggs tests you have ever taken are only marginally better than the horoscope in the newspaper, at best. His ideas are positively iconoclastic, but he's done his homework and shares insights into developing your personality on YOUR terms that will make you stand up and cheer. The first place he drops the hammer is on the concept of personality versus identity. Are you really stuck being the person you've always been, even if you would really rather be someone different? I mean, what if 'just be yourself' isn't working? And furthermore, what if self-help doesn't work either? Does the 'body positive' crowd have your best interests at heart? Why exactly is it that people who lack vision are often so bored and depressed in the present? And on the other hand, how can our loftiest goals actually hamstring us from thriving? What happens when larger societal influences compel us to be a certain way or do certain things? How does 'learned helplessness' inhibit personal growth? How in the world are we supposed to figure ourselves out if we don't use standardized tests to guide us? And here's the clincher...how do our experiences with women shape our identity, and therefore our personality? Plus, even though I've been quiet about it until now, you'll get the story on how I shed over 50 pounds and reinvented my health.

It's been nearly twelve years, but Alex Allman of Revolutionary Sex is back to cover one of the most confounding subjects possible in the world of relationship advice. That's of course, true love. What is it? What does it mean to be 'in love'? Just importantly, what does it NOT mean? And when do you know you're actually there? Well, the truth is people may have different representations and definitions for true love, but there really is some substance to it...despite how nebulous and over-used the word itself is in the English language. Alex kicks the discussion off with some deep hippie stuff from the Grateful Dead, before carefully explaining how love isn't just something to aspire to, it's something you also build...and do. He's also careful to note the spiritual aspect of romantic love, even though what he says may not be what you're expecting. And you'll definitely not hear the same old jingoistic dating advice battle cries here. To that end, we define the difference between love and infatuation. We also talk about how to make sure who you throw your heart to is going to catch it without breaking it...assuming that's possible. Is true love really a 'ball and chain', or the opposite? How do masculinity and femininity--in combination with maturity--pave the way for true love to happen? What meta-level impact does solid self-esteem have on real love that goes the distance? Is love just as much about timing as it is finding the right person? We're living in difficult times, but you're not alone. Call me for 25-minutes free.

My co-host is a sought after social photographer in New York City whose work is featured in magazines. He has worked hundreds of weddings. This means he has seen how that many couples get along, all from a third-party perspective. Now, if you're expecting some sort of protracted 'bridezilla' rant here, you're in for a shock. Sure, couples experience a lot of stress when getting married, but can you really tell whether or not a couple has 'the right stuff' to go the long-haul simply by observing them through the wedding process? Are most guys Steven meets with the right woman for them? How long has the typical couple been dating before tying the knot? What percentage of them meet online these days? How often does it seem like the bride cares more about throwing a big wedding party than the actual man she's marrying? What are the differences between couples who are getting married for the first time vs. the second or third time? And are most guys punching above their pay grade? (how's that for a convenient conflation of two phrases?) By the way, why to we as men dislike getting our picture taken so much?

We've long since evolved from the caveman days, but has our inherent nature as sexual beings? My guest is international speaker, media personality and politico-spiritual thought leader Preity Uupala, who firmly believes most women reject the notion that 'they don't need a man'. She has a fresh, interesting way of speaking about masculinity and femininity, including the fascinating perception that there's often a fine line between the two even while being polar opposites. Find out exactly what she means by that, along with some eye-opening thoughts on why men and women often have such a hard time relating to each other. Why do women say they want a 'sweet, nice guy' when they really don't? And how profound is the importance of having a strong sense of identity as a man in order to help a woman truly feel safe with us? Preity thinks like a woman while thoroughly enjoying men. That leads to her completely unique syntax and thought formation as she travels down a different path to ultimately reach the very same destination I have when it comes to how masculinity and femininity relate to each other. It's a fun conversation, for sure. Schedule 25-minutes on the phone with me for free at https://mountaintoppodcast.com

With the milestone 200th episode, it's fun to consider how far we've come, yet how many of the core ideas we still talk about have evolved. Big thanks to Eben Pagan (aka David DeAngelo) and the team at Double Your Dating for making this classic recording of my 2007 Interviews With Dating Gurus available to you as a free download for the very first time. It's truly like a blast through everything foundational here at X & Y Communications, which is fitting since it's the interview that basically put us on the map. Back then, getting this gig was for a dating coach like appearing on The Tonight Show was for a stand-up comic. We talk about deserving what you want, why self-help tactics usually fail, how (and why) to date multiple women on the way to meeting 'the one', and how I decided to get married. You'll get the first mention of 'the big four' ever, discover what an 'I/J' is and why high-quality women avoid them, hear the case for why chivalry still matters, and get a load of the one simple (and now infamous) meeting with a woman that changed my life forever. Then we talk about the first date phrase women use that lets you know you just hit the jackpot, and secrets to dating success for men who are shorter than average. You'll get my thoughts on dating younger women, how to identify a quality woman without being influenced by what others think, and of course I wouldn't think of leaving you hanging with regard to either 'the nuclear weapon or attraction' or 'the most important 30 minutes in dating'. You're likely to get a kick out of how radically different the conversation is in this interview from the typical pick-up artist advice from that time period. It was somewhat revolutionary back then. There are lots of links in this episode, so it's best to head over to the show notes page and collect all the goodies. https://mountaintoppodcast.com

Okay, this is going to be a sticky episode for many of you guys, as it contains plenty of potentially incendiary ideas that will rip the scabs off of old wounds. But it's all for the greater good, as you'll see. We'll uncover the types of traumas many of us endure during childhood, and shine the light on how it all affects us as grown men. According to my guest, psychotherapist Riana Milne, virtually all of us experience at least some of these traumatic experiences growing up, and I'm inclined to believe her. Having gotten to know Riana and her work, she has earned my genuine respect, as helping heal brokenness is arduous, messy work. So heads up, when Riana starts going over the top ten traumas kids tend to face, it really is going to stir the pot for many of us...starting with why there is more dysfunctional trauma going on now than in years past, and a greater number of psychopaths out there as well. Next, find out the nature of Jekyll and Hyde relationships and why they're so devastating. What is up with how people nowadays are so addicted to electronic devices and media? What impact does fatherhood in particular really have on child development? Are many of us completely oblivious to even having undergone trauma as kids? How damaging is mental illness to the futures of our children? Could a high need for sexual activity as an adult point to childhood trauma? How will kids going through the current COVID-19 global crisis be potentially affected as adults? And best of all, Riana reveals how to move from the blame and shame game toward a happier, more fulfilling life of great relationships with others.

Over the past four years or so, the idea of The Hero's Journey has come up more and more often. My guest has built his entire practice around it, so for this episode we decided to go beyond the basic definitions and examples and do a deep dive. So for starters, what is it about this archetypal rendition of the classic hero story that is so riveting to us as men? Joseph Campbell's idea of powerful myth has fueled atheistic thought, but is that really the only logical perspective one can take? How does The Hero's Journey speak to universal truth not only in how we as humans attempt to comprehend the universe, but also in how we process the pattern of our own lives? And what's more, how does it all matter to YOU in becoming the best 'big four' man of character you can be? What does The Hero's Journey tell us about patience, virtue and the importance of mentorship? Why is it so important to leave home, only to ultimately return? How does The Hero's Journey narrative help us reconcile 'Imposter Syndrome'? Who is 'The Goddess' and how does she empower us to be better with women? Why is it that the most interesting part of The Hero's Journey comes right before the end? And how come 'hero' is such a loaded term, such that few accept being referred to as one? By the way, is there such thing as 'The Anti-Hero's Journey'? Be the hero in your own life...and in the lives of women everywhere. It all starts with a free 25-minute phone call with me.

You don't have to be fictional--or dead--to be legendary. My guest Tommy Breedlove quite literally wrote the book on it. He joins us to talk about how to man up and reinvent ourselves in order to make a real, measurable difference in this life. So first off, what's the very foundation of becoming legendary? And what does being legendary even mean? How do women view and respond to legendary men? Do you have to be world famous in order to be legendary? What if we struggle to feel like we're 'enough'? How can we start today on our own path to legendary status? What are the new habits we need to develop over the longer term? Next, Tommy reveals the arch enemies of maximizing your core purpose...and wait until you hear the shocking place those enemies hail from. What is the best advice for sticking to what's good and avoiding the 'dark side'? On that note, what gets into certain men's minds leading them to become 'legendary' bad guys, anyway? How can we know the cause we're to become legendary for really is a good one? If we find ourselves angry, how do we harness that for a valid, significant legacy contribution to this world? And how can good be the enemy of what's best, thereby hamstringing our true purpose? Gentlemen, join a band of brothers who will lift one another to greatness. It begins by taking control of your own 'new normal' and getting on board for Un-Settled. https://mountaintoppodcast.com/unsettled

Mark Edward Davis has been a men's coach for years now, and he's the right guest to join me for the topic of 'panic proofing' ourselves...which has been on my mind since the COVID-19 disruption started. We jump right in, starting with how masculinity is integrally linked to staying calm and collected under pressure, and what it actually looks like to be 'the rock' when a storm hits. What is the stark difference between those who panic and those remain calm and lead? Hint: it's ridiculously simple and uncomplicated What is the secret to rising above potential feelings of inadequacy or even 'Imposter Syndrome' to lead in the midst of crisis? How about a real, practical way to literally be the voice of calm? Mark reveals the difference between smart soldiers and dead ones...in other words, why thousands of stormtroopers get shot in Star Wars when none of the main characters do. What do the most respected US presidents in recent history have in common? How can we build the habit of having 'field sense' during intense moments of crisis? How does the importance of fatherhood factor into all of this? Are attitudes even more contagious than COVID-19? How optimistic should we be? Get fired up for this essential conversation, gentlemen. And the way, what would Vince Lombardi do? Visit the newly-updated https://www.mountaintoppodcast.com and talk to me free for 25-minutes.

My long time friend David Shade is the undisputed master of giving women incredible pleasure. He returns to the show once again to deliver powerful insights into what it will be like relating to women after the current quarantine is over and the 'all clear' sign is given. So how about it? What is the 'new normal' going to be after COVID-19, especially as it relates to women and sex? David offers his thoughts, in context with the fact he is 64 and has a 20-year-old girlfriend. That's not a typo, and you'll hear not only exactly how he made that happen, but why it's not unusual for him. Doesn't he ever feel like he's babysitting...I mean, they're not even old enough to drink? Wait until you hear his shocking answer. That leads to his take on female sexual maturity, and how we as men can be more sexually mature even in our twenties. What does David have to say about giving women what they need in order for them to give you what you want? Will it surprise you to hear David talk about women being in charge? It shouldn't...once you discover what he really means. Find out David's ninja strategy for relating to women you've been dating during social distancing, and how to stop fearing 'rejection'. And how does the nature of women's fantasies portend what post-quarantine dating life will be like? How are you doing during the present quarantine situation?

Beyond the catchy phrase, what exactly was my long-time friend Dr. Jed Diamond talking about when he coined the term 'Disconnection Syndrome'? Well for starters, you'll find out it's far more complex than people merely being separated from each other. It's a systemic issue that's been brewing for years now, and affects even our relationship with self. To kick off the conversation, Jed defines Disconnection Syndrome and explains how it's directly responsible for many of the ongoing social issues we see in today's world. Discover how this transcends the interpersonal to include how we interact with the world itself, as evidenced by some of the perhaps unexpected environmental effects of the current global pandemic. Meanwhile, what are some of the negative effects that purely electronic interaction has on our real, human abilities to connect? Are there subtle ways we've cheapened our sense of connection without even realizing it? Discover the surprising answers to these questions, along with the shocking ways our physical bodies and minds adapt. The most profound part of this episode comes when Jed details how we have become disconnected from our own identity as men. What happened there, why is it so rampant in today's world and how do we fix it? Overall, how can we get back to basics in the form of real, live human connection, and how might the pandemic crisis actually help us collectively to do that? Many of the men who do Laser Coaching with me or who are on the Ten-Plus strategic coaching program have been communicating with me in recent days about specific ideas and concerns in the midst of the current pandemic.

For those of us who live what I call 'The Suburban Sleepwalk', the present COVID-19 pandemic has represented one of the most profound challenges of our lifetime. We can't just watch this unfold on television...we're LIVING it. Obviously, having our proverbial 'cheese moved' is inherently painful, especially when our relationships and our very livelihood are disrupted. Even though such disruption feels like an imminent threat, how do we not only survive but thrive in context? What if instead of losing our sense of humor we found it? How can we turn lemons into lemonade? And does having our world shaken up quite literally challenge us to reevaluate what is important and valuable to us? Meanwhile, were the survival and preparedness guys really on to something here? What can we expect to be different in our lives--and in the world writ large--once the 'all clear' signal is given? Can we look forward to a kinder, friendlier and perhaps even cleaner world to live in, or will people simply revert back to their respective comfort zones? Tune in for surprising predictions on how the state of dating and relating will be affected, along with practical ideas on how to take every good, valuable and positive lesson from this present crisis and run with it long term. Coincidentally, and perhaps surprisingly, Emily and I were already committed to disrupting our lives in the best way possible. These times have only illuminated how powerful that can be. The best news is YOU can join us in reaching for better, doing more and living with greater purpose AND fulfillment. Your open invitation can be found at http://www.mountaintoppodcast.com/unsettled.

As you listen to her, you'll quickly realize her story is not only inspiring and unexpectedly uplifting, it's also as powerful a roadmap to understanding and relating to widowed women as you've ever imagined. And of course, if you've lost the love of your life yourself, this episode promises to be a source of inspiration for you. In this episode, we tackle all of the most confusing, frustrating and heartwrenching issues, beginning with why people's behavior tends to be so ironic toward those who are near death. And what about how weird people also get when you've experienced deep personal loss? Wait until you hear Alison's brave and ingenious plan to cut through that shame and uncertainty in order to genuinely connect with those around her. What was her stunning realization that somehow gave her peace and even freedom after her husband passed? And how did she open up to successfully finding love again?

I have to tip my hat to my guest, Matt Sinkovitz. Not only has he taken on the topic of how porn affects our lives, he's made it his primary gig. Right out of the gate, we address the concept of porn addiction. You'll appreciate Matt's candid take on this loaded topic. And with the global percentage of Internet traffic that's porn-related, could it be true that virtually everyone is watching it? In that context, how does a guy reconcile his deep feelings of shame and guilt over doing so? What are some of the particularly jarring and at times unexpected sources and consequences of that shame? Do most men really have schlongers as big as male porn stars? Are all porn actresses being exploited and/or trafficked? Isn't porn sex nothing like real-world sex anyway? What's the real-world difference between watching porn and satisfying oneself using pure imagination? Should getting a hot girlfriend or wife be a reasonable cure for the desire to watch porn? Is there a correlation between porn usage and other negative patterns in our lives...even at an unconscious level? So let's say we're successful in quitting porn...what real-world advantages can we expect to gain from that? Should we go full-on 'no fap'? How can we as men overcome hiding in the darkness to find the community and support necessary to succeed? And hold on a second...is porn really all bad? Is there a counterpoint that outlines some of the benefits of watching it? Listen and be both challenged and amazed.

Want to feel more alive, pursue your passions, make women love you and score some extra money on top of all else? Two words: side hustle. My guest Nick Loper is the man with the plan, and he joins us for the long-overdue deep dive on the subject. So what exactly is a side hustle? And how come nobody ever uses the term 'moonlighting' in the online entrepreneurial space? What does it take to let our ideas become reality and how does that make us feel more alive? Next, we talk about how to launch a side hustle that matters, including specific action steps. Why is starting a side biz like online dating? What is Nick's 'buy buttons theory'? And what if you can't seem to come up with any genius, original ideas? (As a bonus, this is also a ninja strategy for developing your stand-up comedy routine!) How does Nick's 'what sucks' exercise relate to all of this? As counter-intuitive as it sounds, how can building a new source of income actually increase your overall freedom as opposed to bogging you down with more busy work? Finally, what are the first steps you can take once you decide you're all in on starting a side hustle for yourself?

Man, isn't it true how some people grow older, but they somehow never grow up? My guest is Josh Burnette, author of Adulting 101, and he has very specific theories as to how and why this happens. What's going on in our minds when we opt to avoid evolving into mature, responsible adults? Is what we're holding onto really better than what we gain by growing up? Obviously, being a child--or worse, a Neanderthal--isn't attractive to women at all, and it won't ever advance your career. Is there a 'bigger picture' to adulting that extends beyond our sense of self? What is more important to a true adult than mere happiness? What are some of the key life lessons that adults have figured out? And what does Josh do to motivate guys toward adulthood? What specific tips does he give? And who's going to be around for guys in real life to lead by example? What happened in Josh's life when he got married and became a father? Clearly, one must BE and adult before one can effectively raise kids, right? So wait a minute, does that all add up to a sobering reality that lots and lots of people skip marriage, swear off having kids and perhaps stay in that dead-end job out of a desire to avoid 'adulting' altogether? Sounds preposterous... All of this and more crisp, golden tenders of wisdom from the back of the house at Chick-Fil-A.

Let's face it. If I know anything about you guys who listen to this show, it's that you're not getting any sleep. It may seem heroic now, but it's not healthy and it's pretty much killing us. Enter Mollie McGlocklin, a sleep optimization expert who knows how to put this topic to bed, once and for all. Fortunately, she didn't take my advice and call her upcoming new podcast 'Sleep With Mollie' or 'Let's Go To Bed'. She wisely chose 'Sleep Is A Skill' as her brand, and her mission is to give us a wake up call when it comes to healthy sleep. So don't worry, sleepyhead...this ain't one of those weird but crazy-popular podcasts designed for insomniacs. So then, what did Mollie discover through her own sleepless experiences? And why is it that we have such a harder time getting to sleep in today's world? Why is everyone up all night and getting up at the crack of lunch? How exactly is that making us sicker? Meanwhile, is there really an ideal sleep amount, or does that vary? Why do older folks actually need less sleep? How come some people need a cold and/or noisy room? And what's up with 'power napping'? Plus, as a special bonus you'll get my quick and dirty tips for solving 'jet lag'. Sweet dreams, amigos.

Well, if there has ever been an overdue topic, this one is it. On this show we shamelessly discuss the 'm word', courtesy of my charming guest Helena Nista. Helena is originally from Poland and now living in Australia. She is a sex therapist, tantric practitioner and occasional body worker (yes, it's what you think). According to her, the body is capable of 'tons and tons of multi-layered amazing, ecstatic, blissful pleasurable experiences', and she is all about helping us realize those blissful states. She believes that practicing with oneself allows us as men to achieve better sexual control and discover more intense, full-body orgasmic experiences. Discover the fascinating reasons why most people are so bad at self-pleasuring, perhaps without even realizing it. What does Helena have to say about the No-Fap Movement? Do men lose their sexual energy when they masturbate? And what makes her so confident that she knows how men experience orgasms, even as a woman? Discover why Helena believes self-pleasure is fantastic training for paired sex. Can you have a 45 minute, full-body orgasm as a man? And would we even want to, considering most of us are already realizing how much we could go for a burger and a beer before we're even done ejaculating? Finally, what about women and masturbation? What do we as men need to know about that? Find out more about our guest and sign up for a free 25-minute call with me personally at http://www.mountaintoppodcast.com.

My guest Rob Kowalski grew up without a dad, and ended up becoming a male stripper in his early adult years. Finally, after leading a rambunctious life of sex and debauchery with countless women, he had a faith conversion experience which inspired him to stop having sex outside the bonds of holy matrimony. Now in his mid-forties, Rob is still unmarried...and yes, he's still not having sex. In most faith based settings, both teens and adults are simply told to stay away from sex until marriage, without really being told why. But in this episode, you'll hear Rob's resolute, logical case for abstention until marriage, and why even masturbation is out of bounds. Are people getting the timing of marriage all wrong vis-a-vis modern postponement of adulthood? And how does the virtue of delayed gratification enter into all of this? And is sex outside of marriage inherently disrespectful, if not downright abusive to women because they're wired differently? What if the big disconnect really is that we as men are still focused on sex, even if it's while vowing abstinence? Whereas, what if a truly healthy relationship focuses less on sex as the central cornerstone of long-term happiness? Wouldn't it be easier to bypass fast sex under those circumstances? And moreover, does that have anything at all to do with what love is really all about...as opposed to pure lust? And how does any of this apply logically or emotionally to men who aren't of the Christian faith? Ready to introduce the woman of your dreams to your world?

When my co-host Jennifer Dougherty was in the business world, she started to feel a bit burned out. What did she do to pull herself out of that conundrum and change her mindset? Well, it all led to her to write a book on how she beat burnout and got focused. How can you too genuinely come to grips with what your dreams really are, and why you're dreaming them? And what if you're already doing that which you genuinely dreamed of doing, and yet are still feeling crispy around the edges? How does that mess with your productivity, let alone your mindset? How do talent, passion, strategy and hard work intersect to contribute to dream realization? What are the ironic bad feelings people can experience even after apparently accomplishing what they dreamed of doing? Are dreams overrated, given how people tend to feel once they've fulfilled them? Is it unreasonable and possibly even counter-productive to encourage our kids to dream big? And what of the idea that we often don't even realize what we wanted all along until we get it? How in the world would we reverse engineer such a concept? Do people sabotage their dreams willingly when they can't see past the moment? And of course, what do you do if you feel like your dreams aren't working out as planned? Isn't it time for you to start living your dream...or possibly even dreaming BIGGER? Let's talk.

You guys tend to love those shows where we do a deep dive into a particularly intelligent realm of thought and seek out truly profound breakthroughs. When I happened across a piece by my long-time Danish friend Michael Lassen on virtuous patience vs. simply waiting around, I instinctively knew it was a moral imperative as men to have him on the show. So for starters, what's the difference between accepting and embracing a certain situation? Is waiting really a virtue? And what's the concrete difference between waiting and patience? Further, is patience meant to be aimed at achieving perfection, or is that counter-productive? How patient should you be when the woman you want is dating another guy who is no good for her? Discover Michael's three-faceted approach to gaining personal power, regardless of the outcome of any particular situation. Then, find out what my own personal interaction with Navy SEALs has revealed about how they are trained to harness personal power in the exact same way. Also, if patience is a virtue, shouldn't life be about enjoying the journey? Science may in fact support that very notion... And as a special bonus, you'll also get Michael's truly evolved thoughts on 'approaching' and attracting women, along with some objective ideas on avoiding the number one most devastating attraction killer.

We never want to let things get too straight-laced around here, so for a change of pace I 'talk smack' this episode with my new friend Jillian Keenan, who is an international journalist and spanking expert. So the obvious first question is how does one become a spanking expert to begin with? Jillian's surprising answer sets the tone for the rest of the show, beginning with why women LOVE to be spanked during sex, and how spanking takes on profound sexual importance for some. Next, discover the mindblowing physiology behind why women find spanking sexually pleasurable. What is the difference between spanking as a kink vs. as a fetish? Why is it that spanking is so closely tied to playful flirtation? And of course, I'd be in for a 'red ass' if I didn't acknowledge how the classic representations of spanking in film didn't factor into all this. Is scolding--or even downright disciplinary shame--a part of what makes spanking so sexy? What goes on at organized 'spanking parties'? What is a 'service switch'? And how about the most effective mechanics of a good, proper spanking? By the way, does Jillian basically run around 'butt hurt' her entire life without being able to sit down...or is there 'recovery time' allowed? Basically, even though we get slap-happy about it, you can look forward to the whole truth about spanking, no ifs, ands or butts. January is already half over. If 2020 is going to be your year to get the right woman into your life, let's get on it: http://www.mountaintoppodcast.com.

My new friend and fellow 'Balti-moron' Dave Elliot talks about relationships between men and women in a visceral, down-to-earth manner that I'm sure you're going to appreciate. Among his numerous interesting ideas is his brilliant A.L.L.W.A.Y.S. framework for predicting whether or not a relationship is built to last. After all, you and your woman want to always stay together, but there are also all sorts of ways to stay together. So first off, how is it that some people can date for literally years, but their marriage is wrecked within just a few months of saying 'I do'? And on the other hand, what are those seven major factors that genuinely and accurately determine whether or not a couple will defy the divorce rate odds and be happy together for decades? Dave and I talk clearly and candidly about what it takes. This episode is all about knowing your own values and avoiding the fear of going deep with a woman you've just met only to encounter bitter disappointment...and instead boldly seeking out and finding the relationship of a lifetime with a fantastic woman who is truly your significant other. Talk to me for 25 minutes free, and let's make 2020 the year you get the woman of your dreams into your life. http://www.mountaintoppodcast.com.
