This episode of DFW features an interview with Dr. Yoni Alkan, who is (among other things) a professional cuddlist. Myisha and Dr. Alkan discuss the different types of non-sexual touch, why consent is so important for sexual health and how patriarchy impacts all of our sex lives. We tend to underestimate the power of touch and we have very specific ways that we are supposed to engage in touch with others. There is also often an expectation that non-sexual touch will lead to sex. Myisha's conversation with Dr. Yoni explores how we can all expand our ability to give and receive different types of touch consensually. Imagine the possibilities!
