PODCAST THREE Do Kinky Things With Power: Erotic resistance and the dancing body
Greetings fellow wonderers --
Joining me today is friend, sex-educator, dancer, writer, kink-advocate, ritualist, and community worker, Zahava Griss. A dancer by training, Zahava has been using embodiment, ritual, and radical love to perform and educate on themes of racial and gender justice, sex and the erotic, and ways of de-colonizing our relations with pleasure, grief, and communal ethics. Enjoy our discussion as we weave through these topics, wondering on how things have come to be as they are, and what support for, and from, our sensual bodies can look like.
