Empowerment Starts Here with C. L. Williams (click here to listen).

Ep49.The Case of SexIn this episode, I talk with C. L. Williams about sex from a sociological perspective.  Together, we interrogate ideas on the pleasure of sex, the right to have pleasurable sex, and the dignity of sex as related to being human.

We also talk about parenting in the development of healthy sexual identities and the role that church plays in the creation of those identities as well.

In the close out, I explore sexual self schemas and the cognitive dissonance that occurs when new sexual schemas are understood through pre-existing paradigms.
