How Leah ended up doing a six month solo road trip around the country in her car, and the sexual healing she never expected to find while on the road.
Leah talks about learning the difference between sensual and sexual touch, learning how to determine and voice boundaries, and her ongoing battle with body image issues.
Leah talks about healing from childhood messaging about her body and sexuality, learning to say “no”, and how women protect men’s feelings during heterosexual sex.
In these new solo episodes, Leah tells her own story. Today, she talks about confusing messages she got around sexuality as a child. Also: listener questions!
It’s been a year! In this final episode of 2019, we revisit some of our most popular conversations so far.
Jessi gets up-close and VERY personal about her recent explorations into sex with women. This is Jessi’s second appearance on the show and she is the body image coach who has supported me through my own sexual exploration over the past few years.
When I began this podcast, I had the typical fears – primarily, I wasn’t sure it was any good! I’ve been overwhelmed and humbled and so grateful for the responses I’ve gotten back from you, dear friends. I’ve had feedback from people telling me deep, personal stories about changes they’ve made and things they’ve learned as a result of this podcast. Nothing could make me happier! My goal in doing this podcast is to help all of us – myself included! – understand that whatever we enjoy is okay.
At age 7, Jessi learned that if she desired male attention she would have to give her body in return. That began a long struggle with her body, her sexuality, and ultimately intense healing work around assault and body image.
