The other rape, denying white privilege, & the teachings of Judy Blume w/Leigh Montavon

No Comment

Sexual assault/misconduct/harassment has been a hot topic this year, along with a slew of other button pushers. Not because these things are new, but because the chickens have finally come home to roost. Voices have been activated and are being broadcast on every platform. Victims are becoming more empowered as the voices of freedom continue to ring.

Inappropriate sexual behavior has gone unaddressed for far too long, but that’s over now. A new day has dawned and the reckoning has begun. What goes on in the dark… 

In this episode, I sit down for a chat with Leigh Montavon (a.k.a. Sex Coach Leigh) and this conversation is juicy. Leigh’s mission is to help people, ALL PEOPLE, to reclaim their sexuality. And I love her for her commitment to making sex safe and delicious for all bodies

In this episode we explore:

Rape, consent, pity sex & manipulative coercion 

Denying white privilege 

⇒ emotions labor & opting out

Coming of age books and the books of initiation




“If you don’t prioritize sex, I promise you… you’re just not going to have it”  – Sex Coach Leigh
