Myisha interviews two sex coaches in training, Tama and David, who participated in a month-long (almost) gender swap where they dressed in the other's gendered clothing and performed gender as the other. From shaving to not shaving, from no makeup to makeup, this couple experimented with what it means to "act like a man" and "act like a woman" in this world. They both learned so much as a result! Tama and David were inspired by Peggy Orenstein's book Girls & Sex. Check it out.

The newest episode of DFW is called The Poly Amish Atheist. With a title like that I bet you can guess what Myisha will be discussing with her guest, Kenneth who is kind enough to dive deep into his restrictive religious roots and their impact on his sex life. 

Sex and religion often have a complicated relationship and many people find themselves in conflict over the kind of sex they want and the sex that they believe they should be having according to their faith. Kenneth does such a great job at parsing out what that conflict looked like for him and how that moved him to leave his faith behind.
