[Wild Cozy Truth 51] Can Good Girls be Sexually Empowered? with August McLaughlin

August McLaughlin - Feminist Book Club
Today’s episode is brought to you in collaboration with Wood + Weiher, specializing in hand-poured candles crafted in small batches.
My interview today is with health and sexuality writer August McLaughlin. Our conversation takes a number of interesting turns from myths about sexual peaks, healing through sexual empowerment, what it means to be a “good girl,” sexual re-education as adults, sexual health and stigmas, self-defense, and importantly, consent. If you’re in the Twin Cities area next weekend, August will be launching her Girl Boner book tour at Boneshaker Books in Minneapolis and I’m leading the Q&A! So come on out and give us hugs on August 11 at Boneshaker Books. Details below.
The next day, I’d love to see you at the ModernWell Summer Pop Up shop! Free yoga starts at 10:30 and the vendors will be there until 1:00. I’ll be giving away a Feminist Book Club MegaBox and one of this month’s sponsors will be there too! Wood + Weiher provided a travel sized lemongrass and eucalyptus candle for this month’s box (there’s still a couple left!) and these candles are making the box smell like a SPA. You’ll get the most gorgeous olfactory experience when you open the box, I promise. Make sure you check out Wood + Weiher on Instagram at @woodweiher.
