S2E12: The Problem With Woodhull and Tantus

*TW discussion of sterilization, and mentions of rape and incest* Today, I’m rambling about the Woodhull Foundation and Tantus – and how they’ve messed up big time. PS the sound gets crappy.

S2E10: Freddie Mercury, HIV/AIDS, and the Straightwashing of Queer Icons

The trailer for the new Freddie Mercury biopic came out and I'm pissed - there's no mention of his HIV/AIDS or his queerness. Let's talk more about Freddie's REAL life and how it weaves into the HIV/AIDS crisis. (TW death, queer erasure, queermisia)


S2E9: It's Arthritis Awareness Month!

TW: Medications, death, grieving, and I cry for like ten minutes. Yay? I’ve talked a lot about arthritis. For nearly the last decade, it’s the bulk of the work I’ve done. On my other site,, I’ve worked on not only talking about my own health but how we can improve healthcare systems. Today, though, let’s stick to arthritis facts since May is Arthritis Awareness Month. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go listen to Wine & Crime to cheer my sobbing ass up....


S2E8: O.School, SESTA-FOSTA, and So Much More

Content note for mentions of suicide, sexual violence First, I discuss O.School and why a lot of us are leaving it or were forced out - they don't actually support sex workers. On that same note, some terrible bills have recently been signed or are on their way like SB1204 in California and the combo of SESTA and FOSTA. Bottom line? Sex work is real work, and it needs a goddamn safe space. Unlike some politicians believe, sex work and trafficking are not one and the same. Check out #LUOF...

S2E6: Isabelle and Uterus Owner's Pain

Endometriosis is an incredibly painful condition where the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus. It's vastly underdiagnosed, undertreated, and assumed to just be 'bad' period pain. This can cause excessive bleeding, pain with bathrooming, pain with sex, and much, much more. Endo affects approximately 176 million people worldwide. Today I'm talking with Isabelle Lauren - a blogger, writer of erotica and sex toy reviewer. She believes in better sex education for everyone. You can hear...
