The Ethics of F***ing

TRIGGER WARNING: The interview with Christopher West in Part 2 could be triggering to members of the LGBTQIA+ community. It's included so people with non-affiriming viewpoints on LGBTQIA+ on sexuality are prompted to examine the implications of that worldview, but we encourge our listners to use discretion before listening to that segment.

In this episode, we’re talking about how to discern what is right and healthy for people in sexual activity.

We’d like to thank our guests on this episode, and we encourage you to check out their work.
