Show Notes

Hi! Welcome back to the Owning Your Sexual Self podcast with your host; Rachel Maine. Today's topic is brought up a lot, exciters & blockers. Exciters and blockers refer to our turn-ons and turn-offs.


Think: What things in your life need to be done in order for you to be turned on?
What smells can you associate with pleasure?

*Your brain is the most important sex organ!
*Our pleasure is our responsibility

Rate these Inhibitors (Turn offs/blockers) on a scale of 0-4
*0 not at all like me 1 not much like me 2 somewhat like me 3 a lot like me 4 exactly like me*


1. Sometimes I have so many worries that I am unable to get aroused

2. If I think that I am being used sexually it completely turns me off

3. If I am uncertain about how my partner feels for me it is hard to get aroused

4. If I am worried about taking too long to get aroused or orgasm, this can interfere with my arousal.

5. Sometimes I feel so shy or self-conscious during sex that I can't become fully aroused.


What is your score? __/20



Rate these Inhibitors (Turn ons/exciters) on a scale of 0-4
*0 not at all like me 1 not much like me 2 somewhat like me 3 a lot like me 4 exactly like me*


1. Seeing a partner doing something that shows their talents or intelligence or watching them interact well with others can make me very sexually aroused.

2. When I think of someone I find sexually attractive or fantasize about I easily become sexually aroused

3. If it is possible someone might see or hear us having sex it is more difficult to become aroused
(Scale: 4 not at all like me 3 not much like me 2 somewhat like me 1 a lot like me 0 exactly like me)

4. If I am very sexually attracted to someone I don't need to be in a relationship with that person to become sexually aroused

5. I think about sex a lot when I am bored

What is your score? __/20

Now you can determine what you are low & high in for exciters and blockers.
0-6- Low breaks
7-13- Medium breaks
14-20- High breaks

*More than half of the people score in the middle for both exciters and blockers.

We often think it's what goes on in-between our legs but it's not! It's about what goes on in our brains!
