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

It’s our chai show, and who better to celebrate with than the gloriously vivacious Hanne Blank? She joins Jaclyn to talk about her new book The Unapologetic Fat Girls’ Guide to Exercise and Other Incendiary Acts, why we need to talk about exercise on a sex podcast, how she changed Jaclyn’s life in the 90s, the story behind the cover of the revised version of her classic book Big Big Love, and lots more. Then we answer an advice question about reentering the world of partnered sex after struggling with depression.

Eesha Pandit: Fucking While Feminist Episode 17

Feeling confused or overwhelmed by all the recent gendered violence in the news? The shockingly brilliant Eesha Pandit joins Jaclyn to shine some much-needed clarity on the realities behind the headlines, from Delhi to Steubenville and far beyond. We break down silos, and talk “innocence,” rehabilitation, what matters and doesn’t about “cultural differences,” and the importance of the right question. Then we confess our failures around even understanding what “self-care” means, and punt to Loretta Ross.
