    72. Refusing Compulsory Sexuality

    72. Refusing Compulsory Sexuality

    Are you trying to be someone you're sexually not? In this one, Ev'Yan speaks with asexual storyteller and author of 'Refusing Compulsory Sexuality: A Black Asexual Lens on Our Sex-Obsessed Culture' Sherronda J Brown about the ways compulsory sexuality has shaped and harmed our sexualities. Sherronda talks about how compulsory sexuality shows up in our world, its links to systemic oppression (like ableism, racism, and fatphobia), and how we can see asexuality as a queer identity to radically reject it. Ev'Yan also shares a practice to help you uncover your sexual authenticity outside of stories of "should".

    Are you in a consensual relationship with your body? In this one, Ev'Yan speaks with Jonathan Mead, a body relationship and movement coach (and also Ev'Yan's partner) about what it means to be in a trusting, respectful relationship with your body.

    Announcement! Ev'Yan and Jonathan will be doing a workshop together exploring in real-time what it means to trust our bodies and flow with our sensual selves—with movement, breathwork, and gentle curiosity. Go here to register.

    70. Give Your Inner (or Actual) Child a Sex Positive Talk

    70. Give Your Inner (or Actual) Child a Sex Positive Talk

    How has your experience of your sexual self been shaped by what you grew up understanding (or not) about sex? In this one, Ev’Yan speaks with Melissa Carnagey (she/they) about what it means + how to raise sex positive kids. Melissa speaks about why “age appropriate” sex ed might not be as useful as you think and what to do instead, why this work is so controversial in culture right now, and where to actually start when approaching sex and body talks with young ones (and it’s not with a particular book). At the end, Ev’Yan shares a sensual practice to help you connect to and reparent your younger self around sex positivity.

Episode 59 on REPEAT

On my third listen since this episode came out and it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Ev’Yan is a nutcase

Ev’yan Whitney is a nutcase. She fired me as a client for literally being, I’m not kidding, 3 minutes late to a zoom. She is an ahole lol. If you actually listen to her work it’s completely devoid of content. Don’t waste your time, money or energy.

Sexuality Doula

Ev’Yan is my favorite and most accessible sexuality doula. They’re journey resonates with my experience and the way they articulate their process has been such a warm, supportive resource.
