Episode 2: Today's Not So "Liberated" Sex Culture- with Peggy Orenstein
In the second part of our conversation with Peggy Orenstein, we analyze the effects of pop culture, how sexualized it is today, and the ways this affects how young girls are living their first sexual experiences. Peggy talks about how these first sexual experiences tend to be a performance rather than a reflection of feelings- as a result of misleading ideas from the media regarding what empowerment and being a "feminist" actually means. Peggy Orenstein is a New York Times best-selling author of the book Girls & Sex and was voted one of the “40 Women Who Changed the Media Business in the Past 40 Years,” by the Columbia Journalism Review.

Episode 3: Let's get Cliterate! Narrowing The Orgasm Gap- with Laurie Mintz
“People should use their scale and the ultimate goal would be to have the same type of stimulation with a partner as they have when they are pleasuring themselves.”
A brilliant piece of advice from our guest, Laurie Mintz. She is the author of Becoming Cliterate: Why Orgasm Equality Matters and How to Get it, a professor at the University of Florida, and an advocate for female pleasure- helping both men and women learn more about how to better achieve it.

Tara tells inspiring stories of the women she works with and talks with us about the ongoing process of discovering your sexuality through your life and throughout body changes- which is something all of us have to deal with eventually in some way, and we probably all need to improve upon.
