How to Overcome Sexual Shame

Messages related to sexual shame are engrained from a young age and they affect how we feel about how bodies, how we interact with sexual partners and how we experience sexual pleasure. This week, we discuss a range of approaches to relinquishing sexual shame. Consent educator, survivor-turned-thriver and founder of CONSENTParenting, Rosalia Rivera joins Jess and Brandon to share her story and insights. They discuss:

  • Rosalia’s personal path to recovery after assault
  • Pleasure as a route to relinquishing sexual shame
  • How partners can support survivors when they disclose past trauma/abuse
  • The importance of your inner compass in recognizing sources of shame

Prompt questions to help you examine shame-based beliefs including:

  • What messages did you receive above sex from your parents?
  • What did your parents tell you about sex with their words?
  • What did your parents tell you about sex with their actions?
  • How did your parents react to sexual depictions on TV?
  • What messages did you receive above sex from your peers?
  • What messages did you receive above sex from your teachers?
  • What messages did you receive above sex from media sources?
  • What messages did you receive above sex from your religion?
  • Am I okay with these belief systems?
  • What do I want to do differently for myself?
  • What do I want to do differently for kids?
