American Sex Podcast Episode 51: How to be a Woman and Not Give a F*ck with Airial Clark

In this episode, Airial Clark teaches us "How to Be a Woman And Not Give a F*ck." It's a must-listen no matter your gender.

Typically, women in the U.S. are on the losing end of an uneven division of labor. We are expected to give a f*ck about everything. This isn't only for those that are parents or in heterosexual marriages. These rigid gender roles seep in at work, in school, in friendships, etc -- even when we're consciously trying to break free of them.

In this episode, Airial Clark teaches us "How to Be a Woman And Not Give a F*ck." It's a must-listen no matter your gender. Airial also tackles sex-positive parenting with us -- when and how should you start to your kids about sex? What's the best way to teach bodily autonomy and privacy but still parent effectively? How do you introduce sex-positive parenting when your kids are already teens?

Ken and Sunny discuss unsolicited dick pics and the demand for well-endowed sex workers.
