On Loosening Gender Norms

Breaking news! A new study shows that same-sex marriages tend to be happier than traditional ones. So this week, we're breaking that down and diving into what you can learn and considering what we all can learn about relationships by loosening gender norms and stereotypes. 

J-Lo & Shakira sang a few songs on TV this week, and it was so controversial that they had to put half a football game before and after it. But was it really that big of a deal? 

This week, we're talking about how creating in-jokes is an absolute must for keeping your relationships fresh, fun, and alive. A good in-joke also has the power to craft resilience in a relationship over time, and just make the harder stuff a little less hard. Also, an in-depth review of Gwyneth Paltrow's new $70 vagina candle. 

In this week's episode, Heidi shares some surprising insights from her chat with Peggy Orensetein, author of the new book, "Boys & Sex." Also, in the fallout of the most recent presidential debate during which Bernie Sanders questioned whether or not a woman could actually get elected president, we ponder that very thought.

Porn Porn Porn Porn Porn

We're back! In the first episode of 2020, we're talking about how consent and improving communications often pays massive dividends in the relationships of young people, as well as some startling insights from Peggy Orenstein's new book, "Boys & Sex." We don't talk about porn. Or horses. 

In light of a certain piece of headline news and divisiveness surrounding it, it can be easy to plant yourself firmly in one camp or another without considering the humanity of those on the other side. So that's what we're talking about today. It's important to remember that we're all just humans. 

This week we're talking about Heidi's weird Thanksgiving that ended up at a Boston Market of all places, which gets us reeling on the idea that there is basically no such thing as "normal," except for the weird kind. Enjoy!

This week we're diving a little bit into the relationship between work, self-worth, and purpose. Just how much are all these things interconnected, and how possible is it to separate them? And what's this work-life balance thing all these dang millennials keep hollering about??? 

In this week's episode of On Purpose, we talk about an article that caught Heidi's attention recently about the three battles you should stop picking with your teenager, and consider the pros and cons of these common areas of contention.

Take 5 Minutes

Before you listen to this...take five minutes to yourself. No phone. No email. Maybe just a cup of coffee. Then...make sure you listen to this, because we're talking about all kinds of stuff, like the Chicago teacher's strike, why men don't bring their kids to therapy, and how integrating masculine energy into a healthy family dynamic results in a win for everyone.
