The Most Courageous Love Story Ever Told

EOn today’s episode of Touchpoint, I sit down with two of the bravest people I’ve ever met. Their life stories both individually and collectively stand as prismatic examples of the messes we create when we do not show up as ourselves and the magic we experience when we do. I first met Nick and Katherine North in Marfa, Texas at a week-long creative conference called Yeah Field Trip. I was hosting a town hall about love and sex––obviously––and they were sitting right up front. When I asked people to share what comes up for them when I said the word “sex,” Nick shouted out, “This morning!” He and Katherine were all cuddled up together. It was very cute. Everyone laughed. I turned my attention their way. “How long have you two been together?” I asked. “About five years,” said Katherine. “And how was the sex you were having five years ago different than the sex you had this morning?” They looked at each other lovingly. “Well for one,” said Nick, “I was a woman then.” The room was still. It was a powerful moment. They proceeded to share a few bits of what I consider to be one of the most courageous love stories I’ve ever heard. It’s a story of overcoming poverty, shame, gender and sexual oppression, while cultivating friendship, family, intimacy, and above all things, the bravery to be yourself. I’m grateful that Nick and Katherine agreed to sit with me and share their story. It has changed my life. They have touched my heart. And I’m honored and privileged to bring this story to you. I hope it gives you more permission to be whoever you are––in bed, in love, and in life. Thanks for listening. Here. We. Go. Love, Jmw. Insta: @lovetouchpoint Web: lovetouchpoint.com

Danger, Touch, & Transformation In Bed

What Does It Mean To Be A Man?

EAndrew Horn wants men to get more vulnerable. He’s the founder of a new organization called Junto, a not-so-secret club for men to explore emotional mastery where he curates workshops and weekend retreats for bros to come together, take off their macho masks, and get real about their feelings. In a #metoo world, this work is very important. And that’s why I wanted to chat with Andrew about his personal journey. In this episode, he shares stories of being bullied as a child, how he’s learned to be in partnership with a very powerful woman, some of the books that have guided him on his way, and ultimately, what it’s like to raise a son in the modern world. Andrew is a good friend, so we also share a lot of laughs. But his humor and charm are well-balanced with his insights, and of course, his vulnerability.

What Does It Mean To Be A Man?

BDSM Is Not Shorthand for Buddhism...But It Is

ESex, much like life, is best when we feel self-expressed. But that’s why, for many of us, sex just isn’t as good as it could be. Often, we may feel constricted or afraid, ashamed of what we think, what we want, or where we’ve been. In this episode of Touchpoint, we hear stories of people who have overcome shame and some that are working on it, some really helpful insights from our sex educator in-residence, Dr. Zhana, and the important reminder that when we speak our truth, we set ourselves free. Thanks for listening. Here. We. Go. Check out Touchpoint on Insta at @lovetouchpoint and on web at lovetouchpoint.com

How To Talk About Money When You're In Love

EMae West once said, “Love conquers all things except poverty and toothache.” Because while love is the energy that makes life meaningful, money is the tool that make life livable. And at the intersection of love and money comes a very important and often triggering conversation that when left undiscussed, can make for a very challenging romantic ride.In fact, multiple studies have proven that fighting over money is the number one predictor for divorce in the United States. Ultimately, the relationship we cultivate with dollars and cents will have an existential impact on the relationships we cultivate with lovers and partners.That’s why I wanted to chat with Mara Meinhofer, a certified financial planner who works with individuals and couples on an emerging practice called Financial Therapy, which empowers people to bring a sense of mindfulness to their money, and ultimately, their lives.In this episode, we talk about how spenders and savers seem to always find each other, how our earliest childhood memories subconsciously steer our financial habits, the tell-tale signs of financial abuse, how to open our hearts to financially merge with a partner, and so much more. You can learn more about Mara here. For more about Touchpoint Instagram Web

How Meditation Makes Us Better In Bed w/ Emily Fletcher

ESomeone once said, “It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it.” I only say “someone” because the quotation has been attributed to at least three different people on the internet, and I really have no idea who said it. But citations aside, it’s pretty brilliant, right? After all, life’s challenges in bed, in love, anywhere really are basically measured by our preparedness for their arrival. So what can we do to the lighten the load? According to meditation teacher and author of the new book, Stress Less, Accomplish More, Emily Fletcher, meditation is the answer. Now if meditation feels like a heavy word, I get it. For the uninitiated, it can feel a little daunting. And that’s why I wanted to chat with Emily about how meditation can change our lives, and make us better partners, lovers, and more. In this conversation, she shares her story from going from Broadway performer to internationally renowned meditation teacher, how meditation can dramatically im...

How Meditation Makes Us Better In Bed w/ Emily Fletcher

She Said Yes!

ESierra had a crush on Cassandra in 9th grade. But Cassandra didn't think she was into women at that point so it was a no go. Fast forward to adulthood when they find each other again and fall in love. And then, last week at our town hall, Sierra pops the question. Spoiler alert: this episode contains our favorite Touchpoint moment so far.In addition to all that good loving, stories of "kink party" fails, intimate spreadsheets, never-too-late apologies for nonconsensual sex, and so much more.Here's the next episode of the Touchpoint Town Hall recorded live in New York City on February 5, 2019 at The Assemblage Nomad. Hosted by Touchpoint founder, Jared Matthew Weiss. For more about Touchpoint: Web Insta

Hookups, Happiness, & Heartbreak

EOn this episode, I play a round of the Touchpoint sex tarot with Amy Chan, the founder of Renew Breakup Boot Camp—a shmancy retreat for women to heal after a breakup. While we explore the intimate details of Amy’s sex life—a conversation she admittedly doesn’t have very often—she does drop some knowledge around self-love, the brain chemistry of someone who is smitten, the discomfort we may feel when using dirty words, and what a potential road to long-term partnership could look like if we can just slow down.

Hookups, Happiness, & Heartbreak

Speaking Your Truth In Bed, In Love, & In Life w/ Miki Agrawal

EToo often, we accept things the way they are; leaving ourselves and others without what we really need to self-actualize and grow. Too many desires go unmet. Too many dreams go unfulfilled. Too many words go unspoken. And too many relationships go on and on without reciprocity or joy. In general, we tolerate things that feel wrong or seemingly could be better because we think, “That’s just the ways things are. After all, it’s the way they’ve always been.” But some people don’t think that way. Some people are willing to disrupt the status quo in their lives or in the lives of others because they truly believe that things can be better—and they commit themselves to making it so. One of those people is Miki Agrawal. She’s the cofounder of the first-ever period-proof underwear for women, THINX, the founder of a bidet company, TUSHY, and the author of a new book called Disrupt-Her: A Manifesto for the Modern Woman which comes out today. In this episode, Miki shares about her new ...
