"People who share their fantasies are the happiest and most sexually satisfied in their relationships." //

What’s the different between a fetish and a fantasy? What are the benefits of communicating our deepest desires? What are the most common fantasies among Republicans versus Democrats? These and many more questions are address by social psychologist Dr Justin Lehmiller's new book Tell Me What You Want, for which he surveyed 4200 Americans on their erotic fantasies. //

Dr Lehmiller and Tina chatted about why we want what we can't have, or what we've been raised to believe we're not supposed to want in the first place, and much more! //
