You, Me, Empathy - Episode 31: The Birds & the Bees with Jessica Broughton, Jason Michael, and Jeanne Hospod

Note: There's explicit talk of sex, including sexual assault and masturbation, in this episode of You, Me, Empathy. 

On Episode 31 of You, Me, Empathy, it's the Birds and Bees talk and how that impacted our mental health, identity, and sexuality with guests Jessica Broughton, Jason Michael, and Jeanne Hospod.

In this special impromptu collaboration episode, Jessica, Jason, and Jeanne share their experiences with the birds and the bees talk. We explore how being raised in a religious environment impacted our own views on sexuality, masturbation, and pornography. We talk about breaking the stigma of sex, masturbation, and pornography through open, shame-free dialogue. We also cover the fact that all forms of love are acceptable and valid. 

Plus, DH Lawrence, sticky t-shirts, condoms, birds and the bees cartoons, growing up with a Catholic nun as a parent, and much more. Special thanks to Jessica, Jason, and Jeanne for sharing!
