Today on the show, I answer your questions about how to talk to kids about sex and about identifying as asexual. I’ll also be sharing part 2 of my interview with Emily Percival Paterson, where we talk about coming out to our parents, how to create inclusive spaces, and get into all the juicy details about their relationship with Clary Chambers. Clary will also be my next guest on the podcast and I am so excited to share this power couple’s story both in and out of the bedroom.
