Show Notes: Episode 1

Feast or Famine:
Sex Toys, Strip Clubs and Celibacy in Lockdown

In our pilot episode, we explore how the pandemic has changed our experience around sex, intimacy and pleasure, through the lens of Feast or Famine.

We’re talking rampant solo sex, celibacy (elected or otherwise), virtual dating, self-care, and how sex workers have responded to the pandemic. And we have a whole array of thinkers, speakers and scientists with us to discuss.
