Sex: Mind full or Mindful? TEDxWomen AFC

"We don't talk about the complexity of sexuality. What happens when we don't talk about it is that sexuality ends up on the shadows, and that is where we have shame, embarrassment, exploitation, abuse, and fear." ~Jennifer Gunsaullus, PhD

I was thrilled to speak at America's Finest City's TEDxWomen event in San Diego on December 2, 2012, about my favorite topics of sex, female sexuality, and mindfulness. Also, you can check out 10 of the Sexiest TED Talks about Sex. Thank you for viewing and I'd love to hear what you have to say about sex, female sexuality, and mindfulness!Sex TED Talk

This is remarkable, Jenn! You pulled together so many pieces that I have encountered in different places to form a cohesive presentation that is quite powerful. Thanks for this.

What a great presentation on how women can grow past some of the many societal pressures and develop those "magical powers". Such a critical area in any adults (female or male) life yet there is almost no education besides the negative. Thank you for such a positive and humorous session.

Hey, Richard,
Thank you for taking the time to comment! I'm glad my approach resonated with you. Unfortunately we have a ton of negativity, misunderstanding, and heaviness around sexual topics, despite being titillating. I love mindfulness to help us get through all of this. Thanks :)

It is one of the best spent 16 minutes of my life.
We need to open up to talk about sex just like we talk about sports to get better techniques and be proud of our sexuality.

Hi Jenn!

I'm an undergraduate student at U-Albany. After a gender and sexuality discussion with one of my Sociology teachers, he brought up your blog and suggested I check it out. I am so glad I did - you are absolutely fabulous! As a young woman in my early 20's - I find your work and interests so inspiring academically and also incredibly helpful personally. You're awesome!

Hi, Casey!
Thank you so much for writing here! That's awesome your professor directed you to my work - who's your professor? I presume it's someone I know, who was there was I was getting my PhD from U-Albany??
I'm so glad that my work resonated with you :)
Feel free to email me through my website if you have any questions!

Be well,

This is such an important talk! I'll be sharing it with my friends, for I believe so strongly in the power of mindfulness. To utilize it for healing sexual issues is brilliant therapy! Thank you.
