Episode 24

Let's Talk About Post-Mormon Sex with Dr. Darrel Ray

Mormonish Podcast co hosts Rebecca and Landon sit down with the always knowledgeable and entertaining, Dr. Darrell Ray in this fascinating episode. Dr Ray is an Organizational psychologist and author who focuses on topics such as secular sexuality, and the treatment of religion-induced trauma. Dr. Ray also founded the non-profit organization Recovering from Religion as well as the Secular Therapy Project. We first met Dr. Ray when our post Mormon virtual reading group, The Good Book Club, read Dr. Ray’s mind blowing book “Sex and God: How Religion Distorts Sexuality” and had him talk to the group. We are so excited to invite him back again, this time on Mormonish Podcast, to tell us more about high demand and high control religion and its negative effect on healthy developing sexuality. Dr. Ray discusses how natural sexual development can be warped in a highly religious environment, and then offers healing strategies going forward. This is an episode you won’t want to miss!
