Secular Sexuality is a weekly call-in show live from Austin, Texas every Thursday at 7pm CT. Call us at 1-512-686-0279. We talk about sex from a secular perspective. Sex and sexuality are natural to all living creatures but religion takes this and twists it into something awful and to be ashamed of.

Acceptance, education, and fun is what we strive for. We lay the intersection of sex and religion (and occasionally ourselves) bare, openly and honestly. We discuss a wide range of topics each week, removing the shame and reclaiming what has been natural to us all along. Secular Sexuality is produced by the Atheist Community of Austin.

    Secular Sexuality 07.21 2020-05-28 with Vi La Bianca & Johnny P

    Vi La Bianca is joined by ACA host and co-host Johnny P. Johnny has worked behind the scenes and in front of the camera to make our shows even that much more amazing! Vi started the show off summarizing that Black Lives Matter. Tonight's topic is about Allyship and how best to educate ourselves on that topic. Johnny asks himself what can he do, what has he done lately?

    The first caller we have is Laurie in Texas. She is calling to give her take on Secular Sexuality. She was working in the church up until about a month ago. WOW. She is now an atheist.They had a great conversation about past relationships and VI and Johnny had some amazing responses.

    Next Vi took a chat question about consent in sex and what constitutes rape. They felt their wife used them for sex until a plan hatched. Vi gave some great advice and empathized with the person that chatted. Johnny recommended consulting an attorney in this case.

    Our last caller tonight is Lisa in Alberta Canada, she is wanting to discuss the concept of white knighting and true allyship. She was in an uncomfortable situation and wonders if she has the right to be offended when someone negatively comments on homosexuality. Yes, yes, yes, yes, you have the right to be offended. Vi and Johnny responded with some great advice.

bookouri ,

Thank you Dr Ray

I first saw one of Dr Ray’s talks on the subject years ago. I immediately read both his books and watched any of his talks I could find online. Nowhere else have I found ANYONE taking on this subject which is such a critical and fundamental component of our lives.

Good lord

Just no I accidentally pressed on this

The Monkeroo ,

Body positive, non judgmental, and inviting

I like this podcast a lot, because it feels like a productive therapy session that you get to sit in on. You learn a lot about religious programming regarding sexual behavior, but you hear some great stories of empowerment and escape from guests. Dr. Ray is the man, I love what he does.
