    Season 4, Ep. 41: Learning How to Drink (Wine) Like an Adult w. Kayla Mensah

    Drinking — it's something we love to do, and at times a hallmark, nay, a right of passage for adulthood. So, why does it seem like a lot of us are doing wrong? Well, because we are.

    In this episode of "Adult-ish," host Afiya A. sits down with Kayla Mensah, a sommelier, to discuss the science behind drinking wine, finding the stuff you like, and some of the stereotypes that have come with drinking liquor.

    The duo go down a rabbit hole talking about drinks that were once outlawed for certain groups (looking at you, Coke!), and how the beverage industry is playing favorites to get sales out of us.

    Oh yeah — even drinks are racialized.

    Tune in for a pretty interesting conversation.

    Season 4, Ep. 39: Talking About Porn Like an Adult w. Jet Setting Jasmine

    Season 4, Ep. 39: Talking About Porn Like an Adult w. Jet Setting Jasmine

    Porn. Pornographic material. We all know about it. Some of us use it, some of us... not so much. Sometimes, uttering the word can bring about many feelings — including shame. So, let's talk about it with an expert!

    In this episode of "Adult-ish," host Afiya A. sits down with psychotherapist, fetish trainer, AND adult entertainer Jet Setting Jasmine to discuss our feelings about porn as adults.

    This very candid conversation runs the gamut from the porn star's first introduction to sex, to how she believes porn can be used to shape our perceptions of sex and sexuality in a healthy way.

    The two speak to how they use porn in their individual lives and why it's essential to break the negative stigma around the industry since it's the way many of us first learn about the concept of sexual pleasure.

    And if sexual pleasure is important, shouldn't the conversation around watching it hold similar weight? We think so!

    Make sure to tune into this episode — you won't want to miss it!

Great show

Stumpedd! ,

Good but...

I don't know if it's just me, but the audio quality is poor. I can barely hear one and then the other is screaming in my ear. The content is interesting though!
