    Squirting

    Squirting

    Some orgasms are wetter than others — so what? A listener calls us in on the squirting shame she experienced from a previous Unladylike episode. Then, author and host Lux Alptraum brings a refreshing dose of squirting positivity and detaches the pleasure from porn fetishizing and the sexist debate over whether it's "just pee."

    "Stealthing"

    "Stealthing"

    Until recently, nonconsensual condom removal, aka stealthing, has gone unnamed and unpunished. When then-law student Alexandra Brodsky published a legal paper about stealthing, it went viral and yielded immediate, real-world ripple effects. Brodsky tells us that astonishing story, why stealthing struck a chord and how changing laws can help change consent culture.

    Alexandra Brodsky is a civil rights attorney and the author of the new book Sexual Justice: Supporting Victims, Ensuring Due Process, and Resisting the Conservative Backlash.

Great podcast

Informative and easy to listen to

Huge fan of C&C

I’ve been listening to Cristen and Carolyn since the stuff mom never told you days. I can’t express how valuable the information that these two women have imparted to me over the years has been. The latest season of unladylike (2021) is probably my favorite so far. You will not be disappointed (unless you are closed minded and sexist)

I really enjoy this podcast. It's very relatable and I always look forward to your episodes
