I hadn’t spoken to Stephanie Cortese in more than a decade when she reached out to me this summer. By happenstance, a day earlier I’d been rummaging through my trunk of memories and found a T-shirt from my university days with our faces emblazoned on it. Always too small and corny to ever wear, I’d kept it as a reminder of good times with our group of friends and floormates.

An educator and mother, Cortese asked me to be a guest on her recently launched podcast That’s for Company. Of course, I was thrilled to be back in touch and very much intrigued by her podcast series. As of writing, 12 episodes are available that feature interviews with experts on the topics of intimacy, relationship, and health.

“I wanted to create a space where it felt like you were going to your friends for coffee, and there you knew you could share your stories, honestly, listen with intention, and within that connection we would learn and we would grow together,” she explains.

In the episode “Sex for Every Body with Jenna Owsianik,” we talked about how technology can be used as a tool for sexual empowerment and self-learning, as well as its influence on relationships. In addition, I discussed my publication and its goal to make educational resources easier to access and more inclusive, particularly to people living with disabilities and those healing from sexual trauma.

The podcast episode is available to listen to at That’s for Company and Apple Podcasts.
