On this week’s podcast we answered a question about how to deal with trauma responses on a hook up. A content note up front is that this episode does cover issues of sexual abuse/assault and trauma responses/PTSD. So if those things are live for you right now you might want to think about whether you want to listen or not. FYI we don’t go into any description of abuse or assault, we do have a bit more detail about possible trauma responses (fight, flight, and freeze) and what those can look like.
In this episode we explore how to go about having a hook up consensually, given that this has been in the headlines recently with the story about Aziz Ansari.
Our first podcast of 2018 – yey! Happy new year!
For this one we decided to take a leaf out awesome sex & relationships podcaster Dan Savage’s book and answer a few questions from listeners together on one show. Content warning: this episode begins with us singing our version of the Savage Lovecast theme song in an *ahem* beautiful homage to Dan Savage!
The podcast this time is all about how to make the festive season as consensual and self-caring as possible (once Justin got over laughing about our sleighbell sound-effects). We’re focusing on Christmas here because it is so omnipresent in our culture, but hopefully it’ll be of use when considering other religious festivals and family-focused events as well.
This week on the podcast we did a quick follow-up to last time’s conversation about physical and mental health by addressing how to get back into sex after a gap. Specifically we were trying to answer this question from a listener…
This week on the podcast we focused on how to navigate sex when you’re feeling physically or emotionally under the weather or low, as many people do over the Winter period.
In this episode we chat about our work together in the light of really disappointing sales of our book. We reflect on our discussions we’ve been having lately about whether we should continue working together.
Post #MeToo we chatted some more about consent. Rather than aiming to get someone to do something, what if you could make consent your aim?
We recorded this podcast about power and consent in light of the allegations made against Harvey Weinstein (but before #MeToo trended, again). We talk about how power and consent is actually an issue that probably affects all of us at some point.
