In today’s episode I’m joined by Ev’Yan Whitney—a sexuality doula, writer, facilitator, and sensualist.

 

We discuss…

- What led Ev’Yan to the work they are doing now—origins in purity culture, childhood sexual exploration, and their journey to sexual healing and liberation

- How the same messaging can be received in both a toxically sex positive household and in homes where sexuality isn’t explored and encouraged

- Unpacking asexuality as an identity and common pieces of misinformation

- What happens when you take away the pressure of what sexuality and sex ’should’ look and feel like

- Balancing different sexual wants, needs, and libidos in relationships
