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.

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.
