TalkSex with Gabriela Rosa

Dec 26, 2021

One of the most frequently asked questions that I have gotten over the past few years — from women specifically — is how to masturbate. Today we're talking about the how, when, and why of it all with Paloma "Moma" De La Hoz. Paloma is a psychologist and coach who helps men and women explore how to connect to their bodies, emotions, and desires — both in and out of the bedroom.

It took me a long time to find the value and pleasure in masturbating, and I know I'm not alone. As we come into our sexuality in adulthood, many of us need to go through a sort of retraining, as so often in childhood we're taught to not even touch our own genitals. In this episode, Paloma and I talk about the cultural scripts that play a role in our ignorance and the work we have to put in to deconstruct those scripts in order to rebuild a healthy framework for self-love. We also talk about tips for setting the mood for masturbation and the five secrets for a great orgasm.

Paloma “MoMa” De La Hoz is a certified psychologist and relationship therapist who decided to devote her skills toward being a sex and love coach. She helps both men and women to reconnect with their sexuality, develop awareness, and transform their sex life consciously in order to develop healthy and deeply fulfilling relationships. Her School of Sexual Healing is an 8-week transformational program designed to help women take ownership of their pleasure.

Listen in to find out how to masturbate, what meditation has to do with masturbation, and the ethics of masturbating when you're in a committed relationship.
