A must-listen for all parents and caregivers!

If you are a parent/caregiver/teacher or have children under your care, this podcast is for you. The way Melissa explains different topics related to sex, bodies, consent, puberty, is all shame-free and inclusive. I loved the episode about STI’s, it provides a great non-stigma perspective on this and also teaches us that it is nothing to be ashamed of. If you want to raise or help raise confident and happy children who know their bodies and that their body is theirs, you must listen to this podcast. Consent is a big topic in almost every episode. Absolutely love this an look forward to more content.

Truly a gift

This podcast and website is my favorite resource for all things sex education. Melissa and her content have changed the way I reflect on my own sexual health journey and how I navigate parenting my young child. I can not recommend everything Melissa does enough. She is a beautiful gift to this world!
