Episode 10: Dr. Rica Cruz on finding your sexual self
This new episode with sex therapist, Dr. Rica Cruz is filled with twists and turns! There’s a part about getting your first sex toy at mid-life (and wondering if keri ba ito sa gives), deflecting questions about body count, and what to do with random d*ck pics that slip into your DMs. Listeners who find themselves in the “Conflicted Sexual Stage” (listen to Episode 9 if you haven’t) will be relieved — and excited — to know that there is life after feeling conflicted. Hint: Basta, you go back to your body and everything will be ok. Rica also shared how she juggles her happy active sex life with being a mom. Wait…there’s more!
