Welcome to Amy Alkon's HumanLab: The Science Between Us, a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science.
What do men want? In bed and out? What do women want? How does this all tie together? (And who’s getting tied up?)
These are just a few of the questions I’ll be asking and sex therapist Dr. Brandy Engler will be answering on tonight’s show.
Dr. Engler is unique in that she opened a sex therapy practice for women -- expecting to slowly get some clients -- and quickly amassed a full list of clients: all men.
Engler and New York Times best-selling biographer David Rensin have just published a fascinating book about her sessions and her insights, The Men On My Couch: True Stories of Sex, Love, and Psychotherapy.
This is your chance to go inside her sessions -- to see into the erotic minds of men. And not pervos or deviants, but regular guys. Men we all know.
Beyond the men, we will also see into the minds of the women having sex with these men -- or refusing to -- and find out why, and what it takes to balance love and eroticism in a relationship.
Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8 p.m. Pacific Time, 10-11 p.m. Eastern Time, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.
Please buy my book, the science-based and funny "Good Manners For Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck." It's only about $10ish, new, at Amazon, and every new copy sold helps support the work I put into this show. Also it's funny and Library Journal gave it a starred review and called it "highly recommended."
Those who have experienced narcissistic abuse know how difficult it can be to communicate with them. Every narcissistic abuse survivor asks the same questions: Why are they so defensive? How do we deal with them? Will they ever change?

Darlene is also the author of several other books including Codependency for Dummies and the new book Freedom from Guilt and Blame: Finding Self-Forgiveness.

Please join us for continuing exploration into the phenomenological approach to design.
Okay, let's try this again . .
Do you ever feel like you are being tested in a relationship with a woman to see just how much garbage you will put up with? Does her voice start sounding like fingernails on a chalkboard? Do you often want to pull your hair out and scream “What the heck will it take to make her get off my back??!!”
Well, she is probably not a borderline, or a narcissist or any other kind of personality disorder.
She is a normal female, and she is making you crazy with normal female behavior. She isn’t bad, guys. She isn’t evil. She’s just a woman.
Sh*t testing, also known as nagging, criticizing, shaming, guilting and moaning, manipulating and a dozen other labels that your average guy knows all too well, is often a normal and expected part of the female relationship repertoire, and the fact is that most all men are really powerless and ignorant when it comes to handling these things.
You don’t have to take the brunt of this nonsense, and tonight, on Red Pill Relationship Rehab with Dr. Tara J. Palmatier of Shrink4Men and Dr. Paul of AVoiceforMen, are going to discuss this and the very simple solutions will bring peace back into your life and help you to understand that saying No to a woman is neither a four-letter word nor is it "abuse."
The call in number is 310-388-9709. The show starts at 9:00 p.m. EDT.

The Science of Trust: Emotional Attunement for Couples
For the past thirty-five years, John Gottman’s research has been internationally recognized for its unprecedented ability to precisely measure interactive processes in couples and to predict the long-term success or failure of relationships. In this groundbreaking book, he presents a new approach to understanding and changing couples: a fundamental social skill called “emotional attunement,” which describes a couple’s ability to fully process and move on from negative emotional events, ultimately creating a stronger relationship.
Gottman draws from this longitudinal research and theory to show how emotional attunement can downregulate negative affect, help couples focus on positive traits and memories, and even help prevent domestic violence. He offers a detailed intervention devised to cultivate attunement, thereby helping couples connect, respect, and show affection. Emotional attunement is extended to tackle the subjects of flooding, the story we tell ourselves about our relationship, conflict, personality, changing relationships, and gender. Gottman also explains how to create emotional attunement when it is missing, to lay a foundation that will carry the relationship through difficult times.
Gottman encourages couples to cultivate attunement through awareness, tolerance, understanding, non-defensive listening, and empathy. These qualities, he argues, inspire confidence in couples, and the sense that despite the inevitable struggles, the relationship is enduring and resilient.
