10. "Sex Ed in Color" with Cameron Glover
View this post on InstagramSo many new followers in the last few days... I figured that I was overdue for an introduction post! I'm Cameron, the host and creator of #sexedincolor! I'm a Black femme, sex educator, writer, podcaster, and anime nerd (anyone else obsessed with how great My Hero Academia is? 😭) I created #sexedincolor because there is a need for MORE sex podcasts to focus on BIPOC [Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color], especially those of us in the field. I'm really excited to see this podcast & community grow to recognize the folks that have been here, doing the work and who continues to inspire us. In the comments, I'd love to hear more about who you are, where you're from, and what you hope Sex Ed In Color will bring for you! #sexed #sexeducator #sexedincolor #sexpodcast #blackfemme #sexwriter #sexualityprofessional

14. "Dating Sucks" with Jonah Feingold & Ilana Dunn
View this post on Instagram*This episode of Dating Sucks was filmed prior to the stay at home ordinance. Please do you your part to keep everyone safe and date from home* According to a Hinge IG poll, 71% of people are nervous before a first date. One way to take the pressure off is to do an activity — when quarantine ends — like trivia, which allows you to learn more about each other without having to come up with the questions on your own. And yes, this power move applies to virtual dating as well! @augustlauranyc

17. "Heal Your Heartbreak" with Kendra
View this post on Instagram Not even those with the strongest will power and most discipline can avoid looking at an ex's social media. I get it, we feel like we hav to keep tabs on what they're doing, how they're doing, and who they're with. In this video I walk through 4 different ways you can avoid doing this. That obsessive thinking about looking and the act of doing it can both be super detrimental to your healing process and being able to let go of your ex.
