Episode 46: ‘Yucatan Triangle’ (Gretchen Shanks)

Burned out and overworked, corporate employee Gretchen Shanks takes a long overdue vacation to Tulum Mexico to escape. She’s hoping to escape her empty existence for a few weeks – hey, wouldn’t a romantic encounter be perfect?! But during a hookup (yes!) with her Mayan kayak guide, she realizes a lifelong pattern in the bedroom and resolves to employ her research superpowers to change her sex life. Gretchen’s travel involves more than the Yucatan peninsula; using her laptop and impressive spreadsheet skills, she goes from frustrated to an expert in sex parties, dominance and submission, sexological bodywork, tantra and more. Then one night in a BDSM dungeon, she meets a man who takes her to a place she’s never been.
