Episode 2: Today's Not So "Liberated" Sex Culture- with Peggy Orenstein

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.

Episode 7: Overcoming Shame and the Power of Sexual Healing- with Tina Schermer Sellers

Sexual shame is a global issue, but it turns out that in the US it's "even worse that we thought it was." From religion to media, in school and at home, we are bombarded messages about our sexuality that can be subtle yet extremely damaging to ourselves and our relationships. How do we cure sexual shame in order to reclaim not only pleasure but above all else- our mental health and wellbeing?

Episode 8: The Church Used to be Sex Positive- WTF Happened? - with Tina Schermer Sellers

"God loves you like a lover, and longs for you like a lover." This is just one of the many surprising examples that Dr. Tina Schermer Sellers found while researching sexuality in religious scriptures.
In this episode, she discusses how the Western church actually used to be sex positive- so where did everything get turned around, and why did religion end up cultivating and capitalizing on sexual fear and shame instead?
