Episode 8: My Relationship with Sex
Growing up, sex was a conversation my family never talked about. While it shielded us from the messy parts of it, it also created a stigma that impacted my view and relationship with it. This stigma ultimately impacted my sexual experiences and also my relationships. Besides sharing how the stigma came about, and how it impacted my relationships, I also share how I feel a healthy view on sex for ourselves should look like.  New episodes will be posted every Thursday.
