SEASON FINALE: Celibacy
What do you imagine when you hear the word celibacy? A monk taking a vow of chastity? Someone denying themselves pleasure? Do you think of incels posting misogynistic threads to Reddit in the dark? Do you imagine someone saving themselves for marriage or God? Do you think that if you go too long without penetrative sex, you’ll grow cobwebs? Do you consider celibacy the absence of all orgasms - including masturbation? Have you ever gone through a period of self-imposed celibacy? For our season three finale, Liz dives deep into the topic of CELIBACY with the help of some friends: Dr. Kate Lister, Shan Boodram, Weezy & Mandii of the Whoreible Decisions Podcast, Money Mark, Carolyn Murphy, Ramy Youssef, Bebe Buell, Mykki Blanco, Joanna Angel, Riley Reid, Kenneth Play, Justin Simien, Brianda Agramonte, and Alessandro Michele.

Cheeky, interesting, and important
In a society where so little is left to actual science and education concerning human sexuality and relevant subjects, resources like the ‘Sex Ex’ and the work they do are priceless and so important to the overall health and well-being of society.
Not just educational, but entertaining and diverse. If one episode isn’t for you, just go onto the next. There is something for everyone.
...not using language like “teaching boys how to process complex emotions”. While it’s good to address the ways our society teaches different skill sets to each gender, you become the prejudice we’re fighting against when you choose sexist and reductionist framing such as this
I’m so inspired by Liz Goldwyn and her podcast and community, The Sex Ed. This podcast and all the conversations she has shared with us has inspired me to pursue a career shift and become a sex therapist and educator. Everyone needs to listen to this podcast.
