Podcast: No Life Skills

Ashlynn of the No Life Skills podcast asked me beautiful questions and held incredible space.

Give it a listen and Subscribe to the podcast!

Some of my fav moments:

“The prostitute archetype is ancient and empowering. It has the potential to revivify but also threatens to dismantle a lot.”

“I understand people’s motivations for stereotyping and oversimplification, but even so, that’s not a place we can remain if we want to evolve as a species.”

“Real life people are complicated and silly and contradictory and interesting and that isn’t all automatically negated because someone’s a sex worker.”

“No simple answers, no simple questions, no simple anything.”
