Episode 2.06: Separating Shame and Sex with Gigi Engle

Gigi Engle


This episode is brought to us thanks to our friends at Womanizer.


Hello loves.

When I first decided to do this episode, I was really scared because I’ve never publicly talked about this topic before. Over the past year, I’ve been having private conversations about sex and pleasure, but I think it’s finally time to take it public.

Gigi Engle is a feminist author, certified sex coach, sexologist, and sex educator. As a sex expert for Womanizer and a Brand Ambassador for LifeStyles condoms, she promotes and teaches about pleasure-based sex education, masturbation, and safer sex practices. She also serves as a Pleasure Professional with The O-School where she teaches a number of classes centered around pleasure, sexual health, and confidence.

Gigi’s work regularly appears in many publications such as BRIDES, Marie Claire, Elle Magazine, Teen Vogue, Glamour, and Women’s Health and her articles have been shared over 50 million times. She also writes an advice column, Ask Gigi, and is an original member of The Women of Sex Tech. Her first book, All The F*cking Mistakes: A Guide to Sex, Love, and Life, is available for pre-order at the time of this episode being released.

In this episode, Gigi shares how she found her way into the field of sex education, how masturbation can help you get into your body in a positive way and learn what you find pleasurable, the shocking state of sex education in our schools today, how to communicate with your partner about your sexuality, whether or not it’s okay to masturbate when you’re in a relationship, and more!

The Pain Points We Explore In This Episode:

  • Why I’ve never talked about this topic publicly before
  • The backlash Gigi received from an article she wrote for Teen Vogue
  • The relationship Gigi lost early in her career
  • The stigmas and negatives views we're taught about our sexuality from a young age
  • Seeing your body as a source of pleasure when it’s mostly been a source of pain
