Sharing inspirational stories of hope, inclusion, and healthy lifestyles are more important than ever. If you are looking for ways to connect with loved ones you are separated from, check out this blog post that I shared recently. On to another inspiring story…
I am so excited to share my latest podcast interview that I released recently with certified sexuality educator Phoenix Mandel. It was such a pleasure to have them back on the show! Check out Episode 127 for my initial interview with them that was delightful as well. Phoenix and I have a lively discussion here in Episode 161 that I am confident you will enjoy, where we talk about current topics of interest for Phoenix. Honestly I don’t want to spoil it here. Check it out live! Phoenix, thank you so much for all of the amazing and much-needed work that you put out into the world! I LOOOOVE your mission to make sex education more queer. So much YES!
Here is their bio:
Certified Sexuality Educator Phoenix Mandel has been a sexuality educator and consultant since 2006, workshopping on sex and body positivity, kink, ethical nonmonogamy, and LGBTQIA+, alongside other areas of sexual health and sexual rights. Phoenix teaches classes internationally and currently resides in Los Angeles. They have an intersectional and activist approach, with a mission to make sex education more queer.
Some topics we discuss in this fun, informative, and entertaining interview:
- What their younger, polyam self would be pleased about their current life.
- The need for any (and all) relationships to be functional.
- How they view polyamory as a romantic orientation (in the same way people have a sexual orientation).
- Their definitions of polyamory, nonmongamies, and swinging.
- The challenges of being a secondary.
- How the nature of humanity is to change.
- Some of their current professional projects and their approach to impacting the sex education industry.
- Tune in to listen to this fantastic podcast episode!
Thank you, Phoenix, for being so open with me during our conversation and for sharing your stories with me via the podcast interview as we talked about the importance of, and need for, increased sexual education for both professionals and laypeople. It was enlightening, entertaining, and so fun. You can follow them on Twitter: @MandelPhoenix, Instagram: @Phoenix.Mandel or check out their Patreon and Linktree pages.
