In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Ev’yan’s experience of growing up in purity culture, and using discernment around moving away from purity culture by continually asking if this still make sense for them.
  • Ideas on honoring yourself, your sexuality, and your energy even while in a relationship and marriage, and how Ev’yan and their partner have navigated this over the course of their partnership.
  • Removing the stigma around being asexual and ideas on how to discern if you are asexual, or if being asexual is a part of your sexual identity.
  • How to discern between having a true sexual desire vs. feeling like it’s something you ‘should’ do, and how that really applies to every aspect of our life.
  • Ideas on having different phases of sexuality and sexual drive, as cyclical human beings who are always changing and transforming, and how honoring this can help us stay in integrity with ourselves and remove judgment and feelings of shame if we feel like we ‘should’ be hitting a certain sexual number per week, month, etc.
  • And more!
