=== SNIPPETS FROM THE SUMMIT === I fully get that plenty of guys out there are fed up with the state of dating, and even to the point of being fed up with women in general. The thing is, now there's a potential replacement for women out there...and although it seemed farfetched at first, it's apparently gaining momentum. But will the new really outweigh the conventional? Or were the futurists actually behind the times in their pred...

Co-Host Sureya Leonara (https://mountaintoppodcast.com/sexenergy) My co-host this time is my new friend and holistic sex coach Sureya Leonara from Asheville, NC. Yes, Sureya is exactly the kind of female 'sexpert' you guys always love when they're on the show. And the topic today is one of those that can't fail. We're talking about how to exude sexual energy every day, so there's zero percent chance this was ever going to be a bori...

=== SNIPPETS FROM THE SUMMIT === A trend has developed in today's young adults that undermines both the quality and level of fulfillment to be had from male/female relationships. It seems we weirdly WANT it this way, even though frustration is inevitable. Could it be that the latest generation of young adults has actually been socially conditioned to accept this 'cheapened' state of affairs? Is there any chance we can reframe our p...

Co-Host Michael Lassen (https://mountaintoppodcast.com/lovefreedom) We all know that as men we need a strong identity and a sense of purpose. That, of course, leads to us being compelled to make a stand for what we value and believe in. But in post-modern Western culture where every social media account is a potential media outlet, and the iPhones go up at the slightest hint of public drama, we're confronted with having to weigh th...

=== SNIPPETS FROM THE SUMMIT === Online dating apps aren't working, and haven't been for some time, actually. And men and women in social circles freely hang out and complain about the state of dating and relating...yet none are actually asking each other out. Ultimately, it's often not necessarily that men and women are mad at each other and bitter, but hoards of people are GIVING UP on dating anyway. And meanwhile, they're STILL ...

Co-Host Dr. Laura Gabayan (https://mountaintoppodcast.com/wisdom) Knowing that you guys tend to LOVE the episodes where we apply science to social dynamics, I've found a true expert in the field of the scientific basis for human wisdom. Dr. Laura Gabayan is both a medical professor at UCLA and a social scientist. As she embarked upon studying the subject of this episode, she recognized that all major religions talk about wisdom and...

=== SNIPPETS FROM THE SUMMIT === Yeah, yeah...'women are like cats and men are like dogs'. We've all heard that before and know what the point is. But if you think about how men and women relate to each other nowadays, we as men aren't really functioning like dogs...at least not in the best way possible. In reality, we're taking on more of a...um...bovine role. What in the world do I mean? Well, maybe I'm completely out of my mind,...

Co-Host Clifford Lee (https://mountaintoppodcast.com/cliffslist) My guest is the most legendary curator of men's dating advice content, and certainly the OG impresario for men's PUA conferences. I'm talking about my returning guest Clifford Lee of Cliffslist fame, of course, who was certainly instrumental in the launch of my own career as a dating coach. Perhaps amazingly, even in the year 2024--a time when anyone under age 38 prob...

=== SNIPPETS FROM THE SUMMIT === Last week's full episode was called 'The Bad Sex Survival Guide'. Well, by request, I'm following up this week with a solo-cast on how to have GREAT sex instead. After all, avoiding awkward, disgusting and painful moments in the bedroom is one thing. But isn't always more productive to focus on the positive? You bet it is...and in this case the best news ever is the golden secret to cataclysmic, toe...

Co-Host Cyndi Olin (https://mountaintoppodcast.com/cyndi) Well, since this is episode 404, I figured we'd talk about something all of us would like to delete and make disappear. And even though Woody Allen infamously believes otherwise, that's BAD sex. Indeed, not all sex is GOOD sex simply because it happened. I brought along none other than my long-time friend and colleague Cyndi Olin to throw this ugly topic on the table in all ...

=== SNIPPETS FROM THE SUMMIT === It's easy to look around and see some other guy dating six or eight women, and another dude who has a great girlfriend who is exactly your type. And we all know comparison is odious. But how do you know when you've really ARRIVED at a place where you're genuinely good with women? As it turns out, there is a specific place and time you can know for sure...and the secret comes to us courtesy of a fina...

Co-Host Brian Marckesano (https://mountaintoppodcast.com/newcity) When my guest Brian Marckesano relocated to a new city for a job, he thought it would be a slam dunk to find a social circle, make new friends and date a bunch of new women. But the stone cold reality was it wasn't nearly as easy as he thought it would be. What was up with that? After all, he's a decent guy with plenty going for him. He became passionate about buildi...

=== SNIPPETS FROM THE SUMMIT === Deep down all of us as men fully realize that women and men are designed to be attracted to each other, and sex is a natural result of that. So how do so many of us get wadded up over showing interest in a woman? Is the 'male gaze' truly despised by women? Do they really see sex as some sort of concession they make to men? Does that, in turn, make all sex 'rapey'? If these all seem like rhetorical q...

Co-Host Brian Ahearn (https://mountaintoppodcast.com/story) My returning guest, Brian Ahearn, has recently published His Story, My Story, Our Story; which is a memoir about his life growing up with his Marine Corps father. But this isn't yet another biography from someone who was told he 'should write a book' because his life is so interesting. Rather, like Matthew McConoghey's Greenlights, it's more FOR you than ABOUT him. In disc...

==== SNIPPETS FROM THE SUMMIT === How many sex partners has a woman had? This is a HUGE question for many men, especially as they consider a woman for a long-term relationship. But what thoughts and emotions on our part drive that concern? And what is a reasonable number? Do the circumstances make any difference? And what about YOUR sexual experience...what is a woman to make of that? Most of all, what are the steps to making peace...

Co-Host Emily McKay (https://mountaintoppodcast.com) Lots of dating and relationship advice talks about how to know when you've finally met the right woman to build a long-term relationship with. And yes, by now we know the basics about attraction, 'chemistry', sexual compatibility, shared values, shared life goals, avoiding 'red flags' and every other success factor we've heard a thousand times. Nevertheless, the divorce rate rema...

=== SNIPPETS FROM THE SUMMIT === If you have 'haters', it probably only means you're standing up for a real cause and doing something right out there. Under most circumstances, you've probably been called worse names by better people than who's insulting you! But there's ONE word that has a way of cutting even strong, masculine men to their core...especially when uttered by a woman. Here's how to step up, make sure the insult is a ...

Co-Host Zan Perrion (https://mountaintoppodcast.com/zan) For this milestone 400th episode of The Mountain Top Podcast, I'm joined by my long-time friend, returning guest and Alabaster Girl author Zan Perrion from Ars Amorata. The inspiration for the topic of this show was a post in Zan's own Facebook group about so-called 'alpha widows'. An 'alpha widow' is a woman who becomes completely addicted to a certain man, and when that guy...

=== SNIPPETS FROM THE SUMMIT === We as men know that being providers of safety and security for a woman is a crucial component of the masculine/feminine dance. It actually creates sexual attraction at the primal level. But what if you're not the kind of guy who can thump potential assailants? And do we have to take bullets for her like a Secret Service agent, or something? Hint...it's mostly about you, not some thug out there. http...

Co-Host Thomas Edwards (https://mountaintoppodcast.com/wingman) A few episodes ago, my guest talked about a certain dating coach local to him in Boston who he had hired. I enjoyed the stories he told so much, that I asked him to make the introduction. And guess what? This week my guest is none other than that dating coach himself, Thomas Edwards. Not surprisingly, he and I think a lot alike on matters of dating, attraction and sedu...
