114: Let’s Talk About Sex (Education! And Masturbation! And Toys!)

Partner for $3

A sex educator is in the house, and she’s taking us back to school for the education most of us never got. Erica Smith founded the Purity Culture Dropout™️ Program to equip people like us with information and education that is “accurate, queer inclusive, trauma informed, compassionate, and comprehensive.” We discuss:

  • why sex education is more than preventing negative health outcomes
  • what happens when we pathologize all things sex related
  • all things masturbation
  • sex toys and sex shops

Join us in patreon to hear Jess & Devi relive the romcom, Notting Hill. Also coming next week, Devi and Kelly debrief this conversation on sex ed and masturbation. It’s $3/month (USD) and you get three episodes a month plus a ticket to the Green Room where you get to meet others in the community.
