S1E16 We Need to Talk, Filipino:a:xs
Filipinos, it's time to talk about sex. In my final episode for season 1, I will share the preliminary results of a survey that I conducted touching on Filipinos' mindset, beliefs, knowledge, and education about sex. The numbers are in, and they tell a complex tale of how the Philippines and other country's cultures, parenting, customs and traditions, and even the media influence or contribute to how we value, define, articulate, and embrace our gender and sexuality. This podcast episode comes with a TRIGGER WARNING around the half-hour. I am also going to talk about sexual assault histories, experiences, effects, and responses of those who know the stories. I definitely have a lot to unpack here, so buckle up, and let's talk sex. Topics Covered: Learn the preliminary results of the survey I conducted: For those who wish to participate, they can go to [provide a link to the survey] Discover Filipinos' view on gender and sexuality Know why the Filipino community still needs more extensive education about sex Trigger warning: find out sexual assault stories among Filipinos, including survival strategies, responses of those who know the assault, and perpetrators About Goddess Cecilia: Goddess Cecilia is a Sexuality & Pleasure Educator/Consultant who believes that even though most of the ocean remains unexplored, your pleasure doesn’t have to be. She encourages you to dive deep into the depths of your pleasures as a healthy and healing part of self-care. Whether it's through pleasure pod workshops, pampering and pleasure products, or a Vulva/Body Crafts activity, or educating in her finest shells, the Mermaid Goddess helps you relearn and reclaim your pleasure. You can find the Filipina Mermaid Goddess hosting Pleasure Toy Parties, with Voula the Vulva at a variety of events, on social media during #MermaidMonday, and providing private consultations to those curious about exploring their pleasure. If you’re particularly in her favor, you’ll get to see a flick of her tail as she drops some pearls of wisdom.

S1E3 3 A 2 and a 9 Have a Chat - ft Jessica VonDyke
Jessica is such an approachable person that she's literally THAT friend. That friend who we go to about our firsts. It's amazing to know that everything around us is a big factor in our sexuality. In this episode, she tells us how she came from being a theater design student to being interested in erotic art to finally co-owning a Wellness Center while working in a sex toy store and doing what she loves most! Topics Covered: Jessica's story Working with your partner Growth of sex education Hothouse All about Enneagram About Jessica VonDyke: Jessica has always been That Friend. The one you went to when you were nervous about your first kiss, or your first sexual experience. The one you go to when you aren’t sure which sex toy to buy, or which condoms are best. The one you talk to about the STI that is terrifying you, or the partner that might not be the right fit. The first one you told when you got turned on at the dentist. Bringing decades of experience, plus formal education, and a healthy dose of adult retail, to her coaching, she can help you find a more rounded and grounded you. What are you waiting for? Give yourself permission. Jessica lives in Washington DC with her partner and their pups. She identifies as curvy, pervy, queer, polyamourous, and femme. She is of Mexican & mixed European ancestry. She studied design in both undergraduate and graduate school. All of those parts of her come together in her passion for creating spaces of beauty and comfort in her home, garden, and business.
