    More Sex Ed: Is it normal to want to give head and not get anything in return?

    In this More Sex Ed episode, DB discusses the question of whether it's normal to want to give oral sex without expecting anything in return. This question leads us to exploring the concept of pleasure beyond physical experiences and discuss power play and BDSM as potential ways to explore this dynamic. The episode wraps up with a gentle reminder from DB that it's perfectly normal to not always feel inclined to receive pleasure!
