InterSEXtional Thinking: Accessing Your Sexual Agency

In January 2021, the soulful goddess Jazmine Sullivan dropped an EP that sent the sexologist in me on a spiral! I loved her collection, Heaux Tales, from the title to the finish. The interludes, the passion, yes. Although she did her thing, this article isn’t an ode to the greatness that is Jazmine Sullivan. Instead,… Continue reading InterSEXtional Thinking: Accessing Your Sexual Agency
