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 08.15 with Christy Powell and Amberly Rothfield
We’ve all got dirty laundry and while SecX viewers’ may be a bit uh, stickier, then most that’s nothing to be ashamed of. Sex is perfectly natural and while adult diapers and blackmail fantasies may be anything but, the impulses are and that’s kind of the point anyway, right? But how do you unpack all that baggage and lay out your kinks and quirks, whether in front of a partner or a professional? Amberly Rothfield, phone sex operator and adult industry consultant, has heard it all returns to the show to talk about boundaries, communication and dirty little secrets, not to mention your calls!

Secular Sexuality 08.11 with Christy Powell, Vi La Bianca and Arden of Eden
Do you ever wish things could be just a little bit… gayer? I mean whether you’re gay, straight or anywhere else on the spectrum it feels like there should be a little bit more breathing room then what super-straight stoicism allows for, or atleast a La Bianca Loophole. With so many new adjectives and labels available (hello poly viking power bottoms) why are so many of us rushing to the extreme ends of the spectrum? Join Christy, Vi and Arden of Eden as we work to untangle some toxically black and white thinking around who we are and who and how we love, plus your calls!

Secular Sexuality 08.10 with Christy Powell, Serafina Smith, and Nate Smith
The internet is huge, and weird, and ever changing. While that last bit is key two things seem to stay evergreen, religiously fueled homophobia and web forums for talking about it. Recovering From Religion, one of our favorite places on the internet, is helping to host and move these conversations forward through their broad collection of resources, chat rooms and forums and Nate Smith, RfR volunteer and forum moderator, joins SecX to tell us all about it. Catch him and Christy with fan favorite Serafina Smith as we log on and dial in to take your calls!

Leaving the Fold: A Guide for Former Fundamentalists and Others Leaving Their Religion by Marlene Winell
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.
Um... in the bio religion as a whole doesn’t it’s specific aspects of it that could make it bad...
Just no I accidentally pressed on this
