This week, Ken and Sunny interview a pair of high school teachers. Erin Heaney and Dr. Greg Marks are dedicated to making sure women and girls have equal access and representation in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). Why is this important and what does it have to do with sex and relationships? Surprisingly, a lot. Learn how women not having an equitable seat at the table affects our dating, marriage, and sex lives and what you can do to change it. If you have women in your life, this is a must listen.
Ken and Sunny experience more SESTA/FOSTA woes hitting the sex ed community, and get closer to losing their Patreon bet.
