This episode, with Layla Martin, addresses the sad state of affairs that is people’s sex lives in the U.S. A majority of people only have access to porn or the repugnant sex education classes offered by a sexually-repressed, puritanical government-run education system.

She has dedicated her life to liberating those who want to integrate a better sex life into their overall well-being.
