American Sex Podcast Episode 36: Kitty Stryker - SESTA/FOSTA, Consent and Juggalos
Kitty Stryker put the phrase "Consent Culture" on the map. Much of this week's episode is devoted to SESTA/FOSTA, and Kitty tells us why these bills are damaging to not only consensual sex workers but all of our personal and sexual freedoms. We dive into consent both inside and outside of the bedroom, and discuss her new anthology Ask: Building Consent Culture. Kitty also gives us an interesting peek into Juggalo culture and how it might lead us down the path to a brighter future.
Ken and Sunny spontaneously decide to send surprises in the mail to their growing Patreon family and give the secret word for the Peepshow Toys giveaway.
