Unconditional respect isn’t a thing.

And yet we’re often told that men need unconditional respect, just like women need unconditional love.

It’s summertime, so I’m taking a month off of recording new podcasts, and instead I’m going to highlight some of my favourites from over a year ago, and rerun them. We’ll be back in August with an awesome lineup of all new podcasts!

As you all may remember, in December we passed 1,000,000 downloads of the Bare Marriage podcast, and we’re still going strong. I have a lot of new listeners who may not have heard some of the podcasts from a while ago, and so we picked out four to rerun.

And the first one that I wanted to highlight was our podcast looking deeply into unconditional respect–why it wasn’t logical; why it wasn’t biblical; and why the whole idea was actually based on poorly done research.

You can watch the original YouTube video of the podcast here:

And get all the links and the original commentary from it right here!

We’ve also had a number of other podcasts where we’ve been the guest land recently.

I just want to highlight a few of them!

The New Evangelicals–talking about Minding the Gap

Keith and I were on The New Evangelicals, talking about our findings on men, especially men and porn. It was an interesting conversation, because the audience is far less conservative than we’re used to, so we had to make a case for why porn was bad. And we did!

Outgrowing the Good Christian Girl

Here’s one I was on a while ago where we focused on the fruit of the bad teachings about sex, and why I left a lot of those teachings behind (even some that I used to teach myself!). Plus we talked a lot about vaginismus, and someone in our Patreon community was asking about podcasts where I talked about vaginismus, so I thought I’d highlight this one again! 

What if you're NOT the problem with your sex life?

What if the messages that you've been taught have messed things up--and what if there's a way to escape these toxic teachings?

It's time for a Great Sex Rescue.

Don’t miss our piece critiquing the idea that evangelicals automatically have better sex!

Also, recently Tim Keller on Facebook shared Josh Howerton’s article on why evangelicals have better sex–and many sent it to me again. We actually did a thorough critique of his article and his poor representation of the research, and if you haven’t read it  yet, you simply must! 

Please spread this far and wide. Share it on social media. Talk to your friends about it! People are still sharing the original article, and let’s make sure that every time that original is shared, our rebuttal is shared too!

That’s it for today.

I’m taking it easy for the next two weeks, so I’ll be in and out of social media. But have some fun catching up on old podcasts. There may be some really, really old ones you’ve never heard! And we’ve got some great ones planned for the new season starting in August too!
