Episode 5: Part Two - Christina's Story (long term relationships, sex, white privilege, and raising children to have healthy sexuality stories)

Welcome to part two of episode 5. In part two, Chrissie and I talk even more about communicating with a partner and how difficult it can be, Chrissie talks about how her and partner’s sexual languages can be so different and how it is a continuous process to try and get on the same page. We also talk about shame, how she has conversations with her children around masturbation and how she plans on soon having the porn talk with them.We also talk about white privilege and we touch on gender issues. This conversation took place around 3 weeks ago, at the start of the latest wave of Black Lives Matter that was triggered by the tragic murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police. This is an imperfect conversation between two white sisters, and it only provides a snapshot of what we covered. I didn’t keep this part of our convo in the episode to educate anyone or to act as a spokesperson in any way. But normalising these conversations is extremely important, although the real work is doing it with people who aren’t on the anti-racism journey yet. I myself am on a journey to be even more anti-racist, recognise and check my privilege, and use my resources to dismantle systemic racism and call out racist attitudes and behaviours.Reading list:Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge,White Tears/Brown Scars by Ruby Hamad,Me and White Supremacy by Layla Saad,Mauri Ora by Peter Alsop and Te Raumawhitu Kupenga,@letsgetsexual.podcast
