Ep. #107: Coming Home to Your Sexual Self with Sexuality Doula Ev’Yan Whitney
“[Our] idea of sexiness, of being a sexual person is being influenced by outside sources, by outside gazes.”
Ev'Yan Whitney is a sexuality doula, sex educator, and witch with a curiosity in Afro-indigenous spiritual practice and ancestral worship. She facilitates, empowers, and holds space for womxn and femmes as they step out of shame and fear and come into the full expression of sexual liberation—whatever that looks like for them. She is an advocate for sexual freedom and wellness, and she guides folks into their own sexual awakening and recovery of their lost connection with their bodies, desires, and the pleasure that is our birthright.
“Everyone’s sexual liberation journey is so different.”
In this episode, we talk all things sexual liberation & I get really vulnerable about what I’m in process with around sex and sexuality.
