Spectra: Fucking While Feminist Episode 23

This week Jaclyn catches up with Spectra, a Nigerian writer, media advocate, and “Love” activist, who’s just returned from traveling through Southern Africa for 6 months, where she trained African women’s rights activists to use media and technology for advocacy. She brings us some stories of lgbt lives in some of the countries she visited that the US press never tells — and explains exactly how the US press impacts those lives. Then we dig into a heartfelt and complex listener question about trans* identity, fat bodies, and how to love your body and want to change it at the same time.

Miss Conduct: Fucking While Feminist Episode 22

Hate Valentine’s Day? Love Valentine’s Day? This is your podcast. Jaclyn is joined by Boston Globe columnist Miss Conduct (aka author Robin Abrahams) for an episode full of hearts, flowers and bittertinis. We talk Galentine’s Day, the romance-industrial complex (and the mysterious short-sightedness of marketers), “fake holidays,” dealing with (and avoiding being) the Valentine’s Police, which one of us likes to eat conversation hearts, and some genuinely loving ideas for marking the day, no matter how you feel about it.

Brown Girls Burlesque: Fucking While Feminist Episode 21

Brace yourselves for the fabulousness, people: this week Jaclyn is joined by Jazabel Jade and exHOTic other, two of the Lovelies that make up Brown Girls Burlesque. We talk about what makes shaking your titties in public feminist, what scared them most when they got into the burlesque game (it wasn’t stripping), how they maintain (and sometimes blur) the boundaries between their public personas and their private life , exHOTic’s upcoming burlesque about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, and so much more. Then, we take on a question about how you can give someone special a private dance at home, even if you feel awkward and shy.

Alyssa Rosenberg: Fucking While Feminist Episode 20

Culture writer Alyssa Rosenberg has us coming back for more — she’s our first return guest on Fucking While Feminist! On today’s episode we talk about nearly everything, including Nicki vs. Mariah, some great sexuality-related comedies you’re currently missing on FX, Zero Dark Thirty, Argo, the limits of the Bechdel Test, why everyone hates Anne Hathaway (and why we love her), Tina and Amy, some Sundance films to keep an eye out for, the sexually frank film that should have been Oscar bait but wasn’t, why Beasts of the Southern Wild was the best superhero flick of the year, and the best we can hope for from the Oscars. Then Alyssa teaches us all how to never feel guilty about our entertainment pleasures.

Attack of the Sugar Monster: Fucking While Feminist Episode 19

This week’s podcast is about bodies. Specifically, it’s about the body belonging to Heidi (who writes at Attack of the Sugar Monster), and how she feels about it, and some potentially surprising things she’s done with it, and how people all over the internet react to those things. The story involves fat, weightloss surgery, nude pics, and 4chan. And some serious badass vulnerable bravery.

And then, as if that wasn’t all challenging enough, Heidi and Jaclyn talk advise a young man about rape fantasies.

Enthusiastic Consent: A new model for better – and safer– sexuality

Evans Way Tudbury Auditorium

What if, instead of just the absence of “no,” an enthusiastic “yes” was required as a standard for sexual consent? What if, instead of treating sex like a commodity that women need to guard and men need to get, our culture viewed sex as a collaborative improv performance? Based on her hit book Yes MeansYes: Visions of Female Sexual Power and a World Without Rape, Friedman’s presentation dismantles commonly held beliefs about rape and replaces them with a genuine understanding and respect for everyone’s sexual pleasure. Join her on January 23, 2013, to smash boxes and explore some radical paradigm shifts that just might heal our sickly sexual culture – and talk about how to get there from here.

This is a Wentworth event. Program sponsors include: The Center for Wellness and Disability Services, Campus Life, PEAK, & WEB

Then we answer an advice question about reentering the world of partnered sex after struggling with depression.
