Ep 66: Sex Ed & Parenting, with Steph Auteri

It's been over a year since we checked in with "A Dirty Word" author Steph Auteri! She's back to tell us all about postpartum from publishing your first book and parenting as a sex writer. 

You may remember her from Episode 21, the sex writer who was bad at sex? If you didn't listen, I highly recommend you go back and do it!

For this episode we dive into: exhaustion, achieving life goals "and then what?", creative pressure, diversifying your creativity, going to a writer's residency, being a hot mess, her new project for resources on sex education, parenting sex positively, peer-based education, her historical project on social hygiene, the moral ties and fear-based approach to sex education, mom tricks to hide your tears, gender conversations with her 5yo, world problems and adversariality, and SO MUCH FUCKING MORE. "Just so many more things to be afraid of on behalf of my daughter, that's what motherhood is," according to Steph. 

For info on Steph, go to and make sure to check out her writing section and/or buy her book. Stay tuned for her sticker & book giveaway! If anyone feels like they want to/ know how to help her with her resources project regarding sex ed, get in touch!! 

Thanks so much for listening!!! I love you!
