Girl Boner Radio: True Sex and Relationship Stories

Apr 7, 2021

Have you ever felt as though you’ve lost yourself or your confidence after a relationship? Or wondered how a romantic relationship that started out like a fairytale spiraled into lies, gaslighting and pain? If so, you may be one of the many people who’ve grappled with narcissistic abuse syndrome. 


August has been there, as have numerous of her past guests. For this week’s episode, she explores the impact of narcissistic abuse with Dr. Kate Balestrieri, a sex therapist and psychologist who specializes in treating people on both sides of the equation.


A few things you’ll learn about in the episode:


  • What Kate learned about sex and sexuality growing up
  • Common signs of narcissistic abuse syndrome
  • How gaslighting can impact sex and intimacy
  • Kate’s thoughts for a listener whose controlling ex restricted sex and affection
  • Dr. Megan’s thoughts for a listener who’s haunted by her ex’s “porn addiction”
  • How trauma can impact sex and pleasure
  • Important truths about healing from trauma
  • A few powerful things healing can bring to our lives
