Today’s essay is all about the beautiful mess that is burnout. I think I’m on the other side of it but I wanted to share some of the lessons I’ve learned.Then I sit down with Kristen Sollee, author of the March Book Club book, Witches, Sluts, Feminists: Conjuring the Sex Positive. I was thrilled that Kristen agreed to chat with us and answer some of the questions that have come up in our book club group. We cover a little bit of everything in this interview, including witchcraft and sex magic, Kristen’s experience as a young slut in the kink culture, and reclaiming problematic words to take away their power. Kristen also shares a little bit about the class she teaches that inspired this book and takes this feminist to school about the fourth wave of feminism.
