About Our Show
Welcome to the Sex Savvy Podcast. I’m Kimberly Resnick Anderson, LCSW, the creator and host of Sex Savvy. Listeners will get a rare peek into my clinical practice as a Hollywood-based Certified Sex Therapist and Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine. I have over 25 years of clinical experience and have treated more than 4,000 men and women with sexual health concerns. I have research, insights, tips, trends, traps, and a treasure trove of sexual stories to share with the world. My mission is sex positivity.
I want to destigmatize sexual differences, release people from their sexual baggage and inspire people to make peace with their own unique sexual story. On the podcast, you’ll learn about the components of sexual identity and the phases of sexual response. You’ll learn how early sexual experiences (both positive and negative) shape our views, notions, and beliefs about sex. I’ll discuss sexual trends, what’s hot, and what’s not. I’ll talk about function and fantasy, trauma and technology, fetishes and flirting, orgasm and obstacles, biology and backlash. The topics are endless!
Email your questions to Kimberly@sexsavvypodcast.com—nothing is off limits. I’ll be answering questions on the show each week. I just might invite you on the show to share your story—don’t worry, you can remain anonymous.
