Trigger Warning: This discussion includes frank, explicit discussions of abuse and pornographic content that may be triggering to some. Listener discretion is advised.
As a child, Theodosia suffered sexual abuse from an older, trusted woman in her life. To cope, she created the idea in her mind that if consent didn’t exist, she could not be violated. The trauma from the abuse later fed into violent and abusive romantic relationships, and eventually to a boyfriend introducing her to the world of pornography. Listen to Theodosia’s story about how her childhood sexual abuse shaped her understanding of sex, paved the way for her career in the underground world of BDSM pornography, and why she eventually left the porn industry on her own terms.
