Most men learn about sex from porn, which does not always provide an accurate view of women’s sexuality. That’s one of the reasons why Real Dude Radio exists: to provide science-based information for men who want to learn more about women’s bodies and women’s sexuality. Totally for free.
Also, women live five years longer than men do, and men die by suicide three-to-five times more often than women do. We make up almost seven-out-of-every-ten drug overdose deaths. So men’s health will be on our radar as well.
ABOUT DR. PAUL
I am a training and supervising psychoanalyst. I have worked with men for more than thirty years and I’ve written a book about sex that has been used in dozens of college courses and in some medical schools. I’ve been on the editorial boards of the Journal of Sexual Medicine and the American Journal of Sexuality Eduction, and I was approved by the NCAA as a speaker for college athletes on sexuality.
I’m Dr. Paul. Welcome to the Real Dude Radio podcast, which is a free weekly podcast for men that’s about women, sex, psychology and medicine.
Most men learn about sex from watching porn, yet most porn actresses say that’s not the way they enjoy having sex in real life. They want something different from the men they have sex with when they are at home and not on camera.
And that’s one of the reasons why I created Real Dude Radio: to provide science-based information for men who want to learn more about women’s sexuality and women’s bodies—I’ll be keeping you up on the latest studies and research that you’ll want to know about if you want to be your best in bed.
Also, women live more than five years longer than we men do, and the death rates for men are substantially higher than for women in every age group. We also die by suicide three-to-five times more often than women do and we make up almost seven-out-of-every-ten drug overdose deaths. So we will tackle physical and mental health issues when I come across something I think you will find helpful.
What podcast would be complete if it didn’t talk about how getting a finger up your butt at the doctor’s office during a routine physical exam might soon be a thing of the past.
This is officially called a digital rectal exam when they put a glove on, tell you to bend over, and check your prostate gland. But studies are now showing that getting a blood test that measures PSA or Prostate Specific Antigen is a much more effective way of gauging whether your prostate gland might have cancer, which usually doesn’t cause symptoms until it’s really advanced.
So perhaps the best reason to subscribe to this podcast is because I will let you know just as soon as they officially declare that routine digital rectal exams are a thing of the past—and that the only person who should be sticking a finger up your butt is your sex partner, or your boss.
I’ll be letting you know about things like a recent study of thousands of professional hockey players where they found that the guys who were the enforcers die approximately 10 years earlier than the hockey players who weren’t enforcers, and that the enforcers died more frequently of drug overdoses and suicide.
That’s because the enforcer dudes do a lot of fighting and head butting, to help promote ticket sales and to protect the scorers from getting injured. And this is just one of many examples of how men need to be more aware of how concussions and repetitive head trauma can mess us up mentally whether we play contact sports, or are in military, or whatever. So I’ll be reminding men that we need to protect our brains, given how they are the second most important part of our body after our penis and testicles.
In case you are wondering who I am, I am a training and supervising psychoanalyst, licensed by the Medical Board of the State of California. I have been on the editorial boards of the Journal of Sexual Medicine and the American Journal of Sexuality Education.
I was approved by the NCAA as a speaker on sexuality for college athletes, and I belong to the International Society for Women’s Sexual Health and the International Society for Sexual Medicine. I am also the author of a book on sex that’s been used in dozens of college sex education courses and in some medical schools.
I will try to do a new episode each week and hopefully release it on Mondays or Tuesdays, and I will do my best to make these less than ten or fifteen minutes long, because I think that’s about the sweet spot for taking in complex information.
