Triggering – Podcast Episode 13

We answer a reader’s question about being triggered at a sex party. We try to answer, what is triggering, how it might happen during any kind of sex and how we might manage it.

Content Note: in this podcast we discuss different meanings of ‘being triggered’ and how to approach being triggered. We don’t describe details of any experience, but there are brief mentions of potential triggers including sexual assault, racism, non-consensual behaviour, and war

Although the question is about being triggered at a sex party we broaden this out to other things too. How to manage that fight, flight or freeze if you’re in any sexual situation (and what you might learn from sex parties in handling that).

Send us your questions and we’ll do our best to answer them.
