Love the show. It’s so refreshing to hear these things spoken about without shame, yet with empathy for others. I enjoy that your show has a respect for reveling in pleasure rather than bragging about conquest tales. Hearing your advice, your empathy yet honesty, and your episode with Mistress Jay led me to write, thinking you might have the perfect perspective to aid in my silly recent hook-up dilemma.
