Shame and Vulnerability in Sex and in Sex Blogging SL003

Now that the holidays are over, it’s time for a new episode. This week, let’s talk about shame and vulnerability that occurs in sex and when we create content – whether it’s about sex or not.

In this episode:

  • This week’s episode is sponsored by Blubrry, a podcast hosting solution.
  • I recently read Daring Greatly and I Thought It Was Just Me by Brene Brown
  • These books focus on her research in vulnerability and shame
  • Shame is, unfortunately, central to how some people think about sex.
  • Talking about it – writing about it – can be an act of vulnerability
  • Our writing creates opportunities for both shame and vulnerability
  • We all have our own shame triggers – criticism, internet hate – it happens when someone pushes a button on something we personally fear might be true about ourselves
  • The act of writing and hitting publish can be an act of courage – and a way to make yourself vulnerable.
