At Attention Talk Radio, we like to help people with ADHD pay attention to what they are paying attention to, and our favorite guest on today’s topic is Dr. Ari Tuckman ( In this episode we focus on sex, intimacy, and masturbation in the context of attention. As we’ve learned from Dr. Tuckman, some of the treatment for folks with low libido involves mindfulness, or attention training, to notice those passing sexual thoughts, feelings, desires, or fantasies and then amplify them. This obviously ties in to masturbation. Sex involves shifting attention as well, because we shift from attending to our partner's pleasure to shifting back to our own physical sensations and mental fantasies. In the context of attention, masturbation is simpler because you don't need to attend to another person and can focus on your own physical and fantasy experience. If this is true and done with intention, can sex and masturbation be used as a mindfulness exercise to help those with ADHD regulate attention? Join us and learn more.
