Today I’m sharing an episode from last September — because With Pleasure: Managing Trauma Triggers for More Vibrant Sex and Relationships — just turned one! As you may know, I co-authored this book with sex therapist Jamila Dawson, and we are both so grateful that it’s been out in the world and resonating with folks.
You’ll hear our conversation about how the book came together and a theme that runs through it: cultivating pleasure practices: why they matter, what they might look like and how they can enhance our lives. You’ll also hear from several of the courageous survivors we featured in the book, talking about their own pleasure practices.
Keep listening after the show for excerpts from my very first conversation with Jamila, from the day we first met in person in 2019. It’s basically a mini bonus episode, tagged onto the end.
Thank you for being here to celebrate with us. I really hope you enjoy the show.
