    Also the unfortunate ‘side effect’ for want of a better word, in that SOME men who view the product frequently may then view normal looking women as ‘abnormal’ because they’re not digitally enhanced / artificial / surgically enhanced as the women on the screen are.

    I just wanted to add a further comment if I may to say that I’m definitely not ‘anti-men’. I think it is appalling that both men and women are suffering through no fault of their own. As Wendy says, conditioning is powerful, in the context of the subject of the podcast. Separately, but still in relation to Wendy, I’m still reading through one of her previous books. It was originally written some years ago and it has since been revised. It is an extraordinary self-help book. Wendy is a remarkable analyst and writer.

    Hey Danny,

    Personally, I think your podcast is exceptional.
    If you are worried about not getting enough recognition, just give it some time.
    Your topics are well chosen, and I’m learning so much of things I wouldn’t even have considered.

    If I had one complain, I would say these podcasts are a bit too long. It’s good that you are exploring everything in the realm of a specific topic with an expert, but sometimes this can sidetrack a bit and sometimes I simply don’t have a window to listen for more than hour. Of course you can pause and come back to it, but it’s better to have it all wrapped up in one listening.

    If you do want to get more recognition, you can share this particular podcast on Reddit(r/pornfree or r/nofap), it’s definitly going to be of interest for these subreddits.

    By the way, I have to adjust a bit to your accent, but it’s much easier to understand for a non-native speaker than some slurry and fast american tongues, which definitely helps.

    cheers,
    guybrush
