Sex Gets Real: Talking Sex, Relationships, and Kink with Dawn Serra (health)

If you're in the Atlanta area, also be sure to check out Sex Down South, a brand new sex conference happening October 15-17. Dawn will be there representing the podcast, and a ton of awesome folks are speaking on everything sex positive, kink, and racial justice.

We are so excited to have Amy Jo Goddard joining us today to talk about her new book "Woman on Fire" and talking all things sexual intelligence, erotic empowerment, and pleasure.

From finding your voice to staying adventurous, Amy Jo is so eloquent and wise when it comes to exploring and growing your sexuality. We talk about identities and finding community, being endlessly curious, and giving yourself permission to define your yes in a world that tells us sex is all of these no's.

It's one of our favorite interviews we've done on the podcast, and you can find Amy Jo at womanonfirethebook.com and amyjogoddard.com.

Listeners, if you're in the DC area and you're a sex educator of some sort, you HAVE to join Dawn at Tristan Taormino's Sex Educator Bootcamp on October 18th. Our listeners get 25% off with code "deal25". Check out details and register here.

Dawn and Dylan are back in the studio after being apart for a month. We talk about the sex adventures we've had over the past few weeks, including some yummy Domme'ing in L.A. that Dawn did.

A listener, Baby, wrote in asking for our advice on how to ask her Dom to be more controlling and demanding, so we talk about all the fun ways you can play with asking for what you want in a relationship that has a power exchange.

Pegging, porn, and prostitution.

A listener wrote in with a terrific message and mentioned pegging. Which sent us off on a bender about butt sex.

Then, Dawn and Dylan talk about the new pink Viagra pill and why that name is so misleading. Flibanserin/Addyi is not what they're claiming it is, and there are better ways for most people to stimulate low desire.

Dawn ran across a fun article about Pornhub viewers that found women (yes, it's heteronormative) watch more hardcore porn than men. We discuss.

Finally, after nearly a month, we talk about the amazing Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit. With amazing talks by Charlie Glickman, Joan Price, Monica Raye Simpson, and more, it was a powerful weekend of sex and human rights.

George O'Keepe was on to something

Pussies are beautiful. Vulva are spectacular. And the problem is that too many vulva owners don't realize this.

After reading an article on the alarming demand for reconstructive surgery on labia, Dawn and Dylan weigh in on the gloriousness of pussies.

Also, a listener writes in with a confession and we talk dick pics. Again.

If you live long enough, you'll become part of the club.

Robin Wilson-Beattie joins us this week to talk all about sex and disability. So often people with disabilities are seen as asexual, but that is so wrong.

Robin shares her journey with her body as an incomplete quadriplegic, sex and BDSM, ableism, and abortion as a disabled person. It's juicy stuff. Oh, and her BDSM scene at the end is so fun to picture. Rawr!

If you're looking for more information on sex and disability, or you just want to connect with Robin, check out her website, Sex Abled with Robin WB, and also follow her on Twitter.

What does sex positive mean to us?

Dawn explores one of her super embarrassing fantasies. Sometimes taking the risk of sharing the scary stuff pays off.

Oh Joy, Sex Toy recently did a comic on water sports, which gets us talk about peeing on folks.

Plus, at the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit, Lotus Blooms asked us to talk about what sex positive means to us. Let's explore this and see where we land.

Camping, public nudity, face licking, and more.

This episode is definitely a rainbow of all the things.

We've got some listener emails talking about the Hitachi Magic Wand, face licking, and a really deep question about a spouse who claims that being put up on a pedestal is killing her libido.

Dawn reports back on Sex Geek Summer Camp and the interesting things that unfolded there.

 

Plus, Dawn recently visited a Sacred Intimate for some hands-on healing work. Hear all the details of what happened and how profound the experience was for her.

A listener calls us out.

Small penises...they're the butt of many jokes, the catch in many commercials, and even featured on SNL as a reason to kill yourself.

So, when a listener writes in to call us out that small penises really are that bad - after all, he's been broken up with four times specifically for his small dick - Dylan and Dawn take a step back and contemplate what it means.

Hear our feedback and why the worst thing in the world may not be quite so bad.

What happens when everyone learns about sex their whole lives?

A listener writes back about their group sex situation. Dawn experiences a lovely display of empathy. Wouldn't it be amazing if we were allowed to have bad days?

Plus, the Netherlands start sex ed at the age of 4 and carry it through their entire lives. What do the statistics show? What could we do better? What can go wrong? Let's discuss.

In the DC area in August? Then join Dawn at the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit from August 13-16. Learn more on their website
