Ep09: Male Sexuality & Overcoming Resentment Toward Women with Ryan Thomas

March 18, 2019

Ryan Thomas - The Intimate Lifestyle.jpg

Details: In this episode, I talk to Ryan Thomas about his journey from resenting women and being in the military to becoming a sex & relationship coach for men. Ryan spent 11 years in the Canadian military, which was where he mostly learned about sex and masculinity. We talk about his sexual experiences that were based on insecurity, and how they led him to become involved in conversational hypnosis and the pick-up artist community, which largely taught him about manipulating women (you can even hear him give me an example of what this type of communication sounds like). Disliking the manipulation, he left those communities and continued on a deeper journey of self-growth to understand how to have better sex, intimacy and relationships, which resulted in him starting his own business, The Intimate Lifestyle. He also gives a great description of what it feels like for men to have non-ejaculatory orgasms, we talk about sex parties and the nature of humanity... so many topics! I think this conversation will be interesting for everyone.


Ryan made a surprisingly uncommon career transition. He transitioned out of the army as Captain, after an 11-year career. Now, he is a Sex and Relationship Coach for men.

He helps men become fully expressed in who they are sexually and emotionally so they can have healthier, and more fulfilling relationships.

As a coach, he comes with a mixed bag of experience. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Space Science, from the Royal Military College as well as a decade long training and development in leadership in the military. He’s a Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and certified hypnotherapist. And for the last 8 years, he’s taken innumerable workshops and training around meditation, sexuality, group therapy, and conscious relationships.

Ryan has interviewed over 100 sex and relationship experts, and currently has numerous articles, videos, and over 130 available podcast episodes to help men get the kind of sex life and relationship they deserve.

The podcast episode I mention when discussing studies done on the human brain was The Ezra Klein Show, Episode 174 (“Will Storr on Why You Are Not Yourself"). I got a detail incorrect when I spoke - the treatment for epilepsy at the time was to cut the brain, the brains weren’t cut for the study.
