Unveil stigmas and taboos in this confessional series with Pro Hoe host, Penda N’diaye to explore topics on sexual desire, pleasure, and using sex and taboo as social equity. Break down social, religious and racial constructs that some of us have been taught to uphold and how they have stifled sexual liberation in communities of color.
Listen in as anonymous callers ask questions regarding to sex and relationships while Penda re-invents sex talk in communities of color in a candid, fun, “pillow-talk’ manner. When Penda’s mom gave her her first vibrator, it sparked the conversation that there’s a lack of sexual dialogue within communities of color and in return, outside conversations have shaped the Black sexual experience.
The series will tackle cliches which have permeated popular culture and commentary, leaving a gap in the scholarship of Black sexual identities. Questions surrounding black sexuality are central to how we’ve been perceived and we perceive ourselves and this podcast will bring these questions, answers and discussions to light!
