Everything we do at The Honey Pot is born out of an obsession with vaginas but also the experiences of having one. Built by The Honey Pot Co.’s co-founder & CEO, Beatrice Dixon, The Honey Potluck is an exploration in all things wellness; from vaginal wellness, to sexuality to spirituality, where humans from differing lived experiences and expertise come to the table and where everyone leaves feeling like family. Let’s dig in.

How do we limit our understanding of vaginas and vulvas?
36:56We need to open up spaces that facilitate conversations and experiences around humans with vaginas. Those conversations and experiences should be rooted in an acknowledgement of what the vagina is and how to build a relationship with it. On today’s episode of The Honey Pot Luck, we dig into what it means to tap into something that is so hidden (both literally and figuratively) and what it could mean to unlock a healthy relationship with your vagina.
Sex as a connector: How Sex and The City became a tool for overlooked conversations

This extension of last week’s conversation continues to present the dichotomies of representation and what it means to be a viewer, to love a television show but also ask it to do more.
It had us thinking…what if what we knew about sex and friendship came from Sex and The City?
24:03Today, we lead with a question…with a television show that was both a cultural movement and has a problematic legacy, what have we learned about friendship, sex, family and “the City” from Sex and The City? Today, we speak to our two incredible guests, Ida Harris, Managing Editor at MadameNoire and Liz Eswein, owner of the IG account @newyorkcity and New York focused clothing brand, New York or Nowhere. We delve into a collective love of Sex and the City and things we believe created unity across all humans while evidencing a need for representation, dynamic human stories and more great sex.
Where to start? Journey to discovering your own definitions of wellness
36:23Wellness is often an intimidating concept. A concept that has also rapidly become one of the largest industries and filled with so much information and misinformation. The wellness we think of when we hear the word, is marred by an infinite list of things you “have to do” to be well, with so many differing opinions and noise, it’s hard to know where to start. Today we connect with Dr.Naika Apeakorang, a naturopath and functional practitioner, on reconnecting with self, culture and your priorities to build a wellness journey that is defined by you.
What is wellness? And what does it mean to be well?
28:58On today’s episode of The Honey Potluck, we delve into a conversation around the commercialization of wellness with our incredible guest, Lauren Solomon. What does it look like to reclaim healing modalities and usher in a new perspective on what it means to be well?
