On episode 84 of American Sex Podcast, you’re a fly on the wall during a candid conversation between Dirty Lola, Jimanekia Eborn & Sunny Megatron. What started as a twitter debate opened the door to a much larger, systemic issue in both the sex ed community and the world at large. We examine what happens when our well-meaning feminist activism leads way to paternalism, savior complexes, and intersectionality that’s more of a buzzword than something that’s widely understood. We touch on performative allyship vs being an accomplice, when it’s appropriate to speak up on issues affecting marginalized communities and when “stay in your lane” applies, how anti-blackness rears its head even in the most liberal communities, and more. Take a deep breath, listeners, there’s a lot to unpack in this episode.
Jimanekia Eborn is a Queer Media Consultant, Comprehensive Sex Educator, and Sexual Assault & Trauma Expert. She is the host of Trauma Queen – a podcast mini-series for survivors of assault and our allies. The podcast focuses on uplifting voices in all communities and exploring our collective journey to healing.
Dirty Lola is a performer, edutainer, sex educator, and the creator and host of the live sex Q&A / variety show and podcast Sex Ed A Go Go. During the last six years, she has shared her distinctive brand of kickass body and sex-positivity and her personal journey into the kink and poly lifestyles on and off stage.
