Professor Sharon Lamb, author, sex educator, and therapist, with PhD student Madeline Brodt, podcast enthusiast, victim’s advocate, and social justice warrior, talk over the ethical issues involved in all sorts of sexual situations: sexual practices, sex stories in the news, sexual problems, and sexual assaults. They “trouble” rape culture, consider what may be funny about rape jokes, blow up the idea of consent campaigns on campuses, explore the world of childhood sexual play and games, figure out what’s ethical in “ethical porn,” and complain about the state of sex ed today. Funny and Feminist, with a Filosophical twist, this intergenerational pair look at what’s oh-so-wrong in the world of sex and occasionally bridge the old/young, teacher/student, uncool/hip chasm between them!
