    Sexuality Communities with Ayzad

    After the podcast, Lee and Italian sexuality expert and author Ayzad continued their discussions on sexuality communities, projects, and history. From changing the minds of medical professionals (abuse is not usually symmetrical) to keeping international kink history alive, come learn about the first public dominatrix in Italy and some of the activists today doing the work. Whether it is representing kink presenter diversity er to some of the challenges between gay and straight kink communities, this is a chance to peer behind the scenes to what sex educators talk about when no one is listening.

Geminidominique ,

Great content and flow

I've learned a lot on this podcast. Lee has a lot of interesting insight to share and I really enjoy his communication style and flow. He's a lot of fun to listen to and has a ton of valuable knowledge to share. Highly recommend it.

FireZeMissles ,

Yummm

I'm shocked there aren't more reviews here. Through this podcast alone, Lee has become one of my favorite people. Insightful, articulate, open-minded, passionate, and geeky....just wow. So much of Lee's advice resonates with me. Thank you for helping me open up to new possibilities.

Coliviah ,

True to its Title

Lee curates experiences and educates his audience with true passion and soul.
A joy to listen to every time.
As long as they aren’t in the hot tub where you can hardly hear them.
