Episode 100: Don't Dim Your Light Because Others Don't Wear Sunglasses

Thank you everyone for 100 episodes (by number). I appreciate all the support you’ve given me and I cannot believe I’ve been able to publish podcasts of me interviewing people with STDs on a weekly basis! I answer some of the listener questions which I’d really enjoy doing more of. I welcome the engagement and interactions with you all.

Our guest this week created a safe community on Instagram to share space for sexually charged conversations. Respect is all she asks for as this community she recently started grows. We discuss confidence and the importance of creating a safe space to express yourself. She shares her experience with her recent genital HSV-1 diagnosis and possibly having passes it on to partners, which there’s just no way of knowing for sure.

Recording this podcast was fun and I look forward to many many more.
