    You’ll also learn about:
     
    Fiona’s sexual “firsts” and a few from listeners
    The difference between bisexual and pansexual
    What Fiona’s female gender identity means to her
    Fiona’s “blow job learning curve” (and her related book dedication)
    Why it’s pretty common for people assigned female at birth not to enjoy going down on a penis

Love love love!!

So grateful for this pod. Girl Boner, the book, was a pivotal turning point for me in my journey to exploring my sexuality and unlearning a lot of religious shame. It’s been so amazing to get to learn even more from August! Would definitely recommend!

Cher Hale ,

So juicy and transparent!

I love the stories that August showcases. They are so juicy, real, and honest — often to the point where I feel like I’m sitting down with a couple of girlfriends. Each story helps me examine some of my own longstanding patterns, which I find both transformational and healing. Such a gem!

The Best Sex Podcast, Seriously!!!

The information given on this podcast is invaluable! I have learned so much over the last few months of discovering this show. The tips are super useful, the guests are great, and August is amazing. I’ve shared episodes with my boyfriend and he also finds the content useful and relevant to our sex life. Please never stop! This work is so important :)
