In this episode, Tracey and Cayly talk about sex, sex education, and sexual desire. Please note that they talk very openly and honestly about these topics, use proper anatomical terminology for all male and female body parts, and do not shy away from things like masturbation and sexual pleasure. If any of these topics offend you, this episode might not be for you. But if you want to listen to some unfiltered dialogue about sex and desire, I’m confident you’ll love this discussion. Specific highlights include:
- What does “normal” mean when it comes to sex and desire?
- How our society defines normal and how we got here
- How misinformed we are about sex and our bodies from a young age
- When and what Tracey and Cayly first learned about sex
