Joyce McFadden is a psychoanalyst and the author of Modern Mothering, a book that explains how our relationships with our mothers affect our sexuality, as well as how the ways we learned about sex growing up have lasting effects on our self-esteem and sexual identity. Joyce also discusses how our feelings about masturbation and menstruation intersect with our feelings about our mothers (eeps!) and why knowing the difference between a vulva and a vagina is more important than most people think. For Mica, this episode was totally and completely self-revelatory and she hopes it will be for you too! Take advantage of some free psychotherapy with our latest ep!
