Erica: Unlearning Shame


S2: Episode 2

Have you ever thought about putting your deepest darkest sexual experiences into a book? Most people wouldn’t dare, let alone publish it under their real name! Well, Erica, my guest this week has done just that in a remarkably authentic and straightforward account. Getting Off: One Woman’s Journey through Sex and Porn Addiction is not a preachy recovery story—at its core it is a story about a girl whose new found pleasure quickly curdles to shame and a woman’s gradual reckoning with the roots of that shame. Spoiler alert: she still watches porn and she’s still sexually adventurous, but without all the baggage. I highly recommend this book and I highly recommend tuning into our conversation!
