#27 Let's Talk About Sex, Baby: Part 2

6/17/2024
Ever wonder why we like what we like? Why we have the rules we do? What is "right" or "wrong"? So much of what we believe to be right or wrong, good or bad is wrapped up in the fundamentals of colonization in our country. Many Westernized ideals have long been considered the truth of life and sex. But what if that isn't the truth? What if these are concepts have been told to us to give certain people power and keep them there? Being able to ask ourselves these questions are the basis of decolonization, unmasking, and freedom both in the bedroom and out. Ashley Papineau is back to discuss in greater detail these concepts, how they impact our daily lives, sex and sexuality, therapy, and authenticity.
