    WE TOO: Yin Q on Kink Out and Forgiveness

    WE TOO: Yin Q on Kink Out and Forgiveness

    Yin Q, writer of the piece "We All Deserve To Heal" from We Too, discusses Spike Lee, Body of Workers, Kink Out Spaces at MOMA PS1, disassociation, complicity, power play, control, and forgiveness. // Yin Q is a mother, kink educator, writer, and activist based in New York City. Their media work includes Mercy Mistress, a web pilot, and Fly in Power, a short documentary. They founded a production team called Kink Out and organize with Red Canary Song, an APIA and Asian migrant sex and massage worker collective. Yin has been recognized by Spike Lee as an impact activist in his tribute to Jackie Robinson.// ABOUT WE TOO: This collection of narrative essays by sex workers presents a crystal-clear rejoinder: there’s never been a better time to fight for justice. Responding to the resurgence of the #MeToo movement in 2017, sex workers from across the industry—hookers and prostitutes, strippers and dancers, porn stars, cam models, Dommes and subs alike—complicate narratives of sexual harassment and violence, and expand conversations often limited to normative workplaces.
    Writing across topics such as homelessness, motherhood, and toxic masculinity, We Too: Essays on Sex Work and Survival gives voice to the fight for agency and accountability across sex industries. With contributions by leading voices in the movement such as Melissa Gira Grant, Ceyenne Doroshow, Audacia Ray, femi babylon, April Flores, and Yin Q, this anthology explores sex work as work, and sex workers as laboring subjects in need of respect—not rescue.

Ricky-Rococo ,

So many tips!

I have really been enjoying this podcast, ESPECIALLY during my COVID Quarantine.
I found this podcast a few years ago and really didn’t seem to like it, but have returned and it’s finally the right time in my life.

From listening to this pod cast I have had many personal breakthroughs around internalized shame, and many questions answered. I am especially grateful for the episodes on anal play that have so many good tips that I will definitely be trying! I also have found many of the resources she shares helpful and e, like links to other media in film and writing. This cast has also really helped me find language for sex/erotic life that I didn’t know I needed. So if you can relate to anything I’ve written I encourage you to give it a shot! (Side note : the episode on squirting with Ignacio Rivera literally taught me how to squirt and made me feel so much better about it as a trans masculine person! )
Also wonderful to hear from so many sex workers and queer people in the industry, writers, illustrators, providers and people of all trades. And so much humor.

TRUE, the audio has much to be desired and sometimes the flow of the interviews seems stilted which can be very frustrating as a listener. I usually take a break from listening or choose a different episode when it starts to bother me, because there is so much good stuff in this cast!

Thank you Tina!!!!!

Transformed my POV on Sexuality and Kink

This podcast has been a key aspect of my sexual awakening. I am better informed, more creative, and more accepting because of it. I highly recommend even if you are not kinky because sex intersects with all aspects of life - race, gender, class, history, psychology, and more. Plus, Tina Horn is so charming.

I gave it a shot...

I listened to four episodes of this podcast, each time hoping it would get better. It didn’t.

First of all: sound quality. In this day and age when you get very solid microphones for under $100 and there is excellent free editing software available, it is annoying to have to listen to what sounds like an iPhone was put on record and placed on a desk on the other side of the room. Mix in sirens and other background noise and it’s difficult to focus on what’s being talked about.

My main issue is that the show is so improvised and without any notable structure that there are episodes that take 15-20 minutes to even get to the topic they’re supposed to be about if they even do at all. I listened to one episode that just sounded like two girlfriends talking about everything BUT the topic of the episode.

The claim is that each episode brings in an “expert”. That does little good if that so-called expert is not asked any topical questions.

I got little to nothing from this podcast and decided to unsubscribe.
