2.7 Masturbation May with Clit Talk
WE ARE ON A MISSION. A MASTURBATION MAY MISSION. Join the 3 hosts of Clit Talk and I as we dive into our own experiences, my opinionated obsession with semantics surrounding female orgasms, and did you know there are 5 different types of clit?! Katie, Lindsey and Sugar share their very contrasting upbringings and how that affected their practices/views on sexuality, how embracing and taking control of their own pleasure has changed their lives, how they did it, and what we’re all doing to empower YOU to do the same. Let’s talk about masturbation, baby! πŸŽ‰πŸ’•

2.6 Diabetes Damsel: Type 1 Taylor
Taylor is really, really good at stabbing. Also at staying alive. No, she’s not a murderer on the run – she just has Type 1 Diabetes! Her graceful guidance as I learn all about insulin, glucose, pumps and jabs was much appreciated because there is SO MUCH ignorance surrounding this auto-immune disease. She didn’t eat too many donuts, yes she can still eat donuts, and no, donuts were never the problem! We chat management, misconceptions, American healthcare, dating with diabetes, and I ask really invasive questions! (Surprise, it’s another guest with herpes!) Let’s talk about Type 1 Diabetes, baby! ⭐ Find Taylor: @Two_Chronic_To_Care
