Zoe Ligon Podcast Emotional HealingOn episode 78 we speak with Zoe Ligon of the SuperDeluxe web series, Sex Stuff, and owner of Spectrum Boutique. She tells us about the larger forces in her life that affect her relationships, identity, and sexuality–namely, healing from childhood trauma after the death of her father. Some of what we touch on: emotional incest, covert sexual assault, PTSD, loving someone that hurts you, identifying and recovering from subtle recurring abuse, rehabilitating vs. excommunicating abusers, shedding the performative parts of ourselves, consent & abuse, reconciling feminism and BDSM, therapeutic kink + more. Zoe also tells us a hilarious bonus story over on Patreon about an awkward discovery in an unexpected place that can’t be blamed on the cat! 😹
