Welcome to episode 257 of the Sexology Podcast! Today I am delighted to welcome Lucie Fielding, MA (she/they) to the podcast. In this episode, we discuss Lucie's new book: Trans Sex: Clinical Approaches to Trans Sexualities and Erotic Embodiments, looking at erotic privilege and genital curiosity and how we can cultivate erotic embodiment.

Lucie Fielding, MA (she/they) is a white, queer, non-binary femme, and a Resident in Counseling, practicing in Charlottesville, VA. She received her Master’s in Counseling Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute (2018). Lucie also holds a PhD in French from Northwestern University (2008), where she specialized in eighteenth-century literature, histories of sexualities, and erotic literature.

Her background in literature and history attunes her to the many ways that image, metaphor, and cultural scripts shape and inform the narratives we carry with us as we move through the world as well as how these narratives inscribe themselves on our bodies. She is the author of Trans Sex: Clinical Approaches to Trans Sexualities and Erotic Embodiments (Routledge, May 2021).

  • How Lucie became inspired to write: Trans Sex: Clinical Approaches to Trans Sexualities and Erotic Embodiments

  • The benefits of trans for trans dating
  • How biases that exist in society effect who we see as desirable
  • Looking at erotic privilege and genital curiosity
  • How we can cultivate erotic embodiment
  • Overcoming the unrealistic expectation that trans people should disclose upfront
