Sex positivity has become something that’s gotten a lot more attention in the past few years, but what does it mean, especially for folks of color? I invited sex positive Asian auntie Jayda Shuavarnnasri on the show to talk about this with me and unpack the things we all didn’t learn about sexuality, our bodies and how our sensuality is our birthright.
Note: Sexual violence and trauma is mentioned in this show, but not in detail.
