The Great Man Within


Jan 13, 2020

#58: When it comes to the menstrual cycle, many men have been taught:

  • It’s “her thing to deal with”
  • It’s an inconvenience/barrier to having sex
  • It’s gross
  • PMS = a trip to crazytown

For the men who want to continue to believe this narrative, you can stop reading right here.

This episode is for the man who identifies himself as one who:

  • Celebrates the menstrual cycle as one of the core experiences of being a woman
  • Wants to better understand the “4 seasons of the cycle” so he can build intimacy with his partner
  • Wants to know what she needs from him during those 4 seasons
  • How to express his needs during the different seasons

Our Guides for this Discussion

Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer founded The Red School, which is a new approach to women’s leadership, creativity and spiritual life based on a uniquely feminine way – the menstrual cycle.

They’ve written the book Wild Power: discover the magic of your menstrual cycle and awaken the feminine path to power. (published by Hay House)


In this Episode:

  • A breakdown of the 4 seasons of the 28-day menstrual cycle
  • What your feminine partner may be feeling during those stages
  • What she may need from you during those stages
  • And when and how to ask for what you want

“During the first 6-7 days of my cycle, I want my man to fight for me to have the space I need to go inward.” – Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer

“It’s dangerous to be needy around a woman who is in her autumn (PMS) phase.” – Alexandra Pope
