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.
