Zach 38 year old man who tested positive for HSV2 in 2017. Our episode here really emphasizes the quality of communication that comes from an STI diagnosis increasing. This is something that can be integrated into an intervention that serves people who have yet to test positive for an STI and for those who date or will date someone who has at some …
 
Elle (She/They) 35 year old Mother, Sex Worker and Educator who’s had experience with chlamydia, HPV and oral HSV shares a powerful perspective with us on how bias shows up from health care providers when sitting across from someone who IS comfortable talking about sex. The greatest analogy here was from how prepared we are for sports, but not real…
 
We talk details about her sex education and how it completely missed the mark for teaching youth to communicate boundaries, consent, and vetting practices for playing in this project that ultimately just said don’t have sex and if you do you’ll be contaminated. Uncoupling pleasure from sex and intercourse from sex allows us to see all that sexualit…
 
Tori, freshly 29 years old (she/her) shares her experience with revisiting planned parenthood 4 times to receive a herpes diagnosis. She brings up a good point about grief, and we tie the lessons she learned through grieving her old self can be integrated into this sex avoidant society we live in. The barrier to the sexual health convo coming from …
 
Ashley (She/Her) shares her experience testing positive for chlamydia, HPV, and HSV1 and 2. What developed from this conversation is that sex positivity is pleasure positivity. She shares how being sex positive is essentially an acceptance for the lifestyles and decisions of others in relation to their on sexualities, but what was missing from my p…
 
Elle (she/her) is a 27 year old sex positive Oregonian. She’s heterosexual and monogamous and ironically our talk led to this statement of mutual non monogamy which you’ll hear more about here. Diagnosed with HSV-1 genitally just a few months ago, I was really shocked at how cool she was with talking about it so soon. We talk about how her self edu…
 
Zia is 22 and tested positive for genital herpes last year during the pandemic and in college. Her experience with the health care providers was neutral and she saw Planned Parenthood. Our discussion brought up this idea that what she learned through sex positivity could’ve been more useful to her if integrated in sex education. Her education was a…
 
Dr. Evelin Molina Dacker joins us to validate and affirm our findings so far throughout this series, which is that the aspects of sex education that people don’t get from their health care providers appear to stem from providers’ discomfort with speaking about sex. We dissect the connection of sex to intercourse and sexuality and pleasure as a way …
 
Erin is a 32 year old cis-gendered heterosexual female who uses she/her pronouns and is sex positive and new to the space of kink.She shares how her experience with HSV-2 diagnosis led her down the path of seeking sex-positive communication resources that weren’t given to her at the doctor’s office (Planned Parenthood). It took for her not only to …
 
Peyton is 27 years old, a monogamous female, who’s involved in kink/BDSM and sex-positivity and has had experiences with chlamydia at age 19 with an abusive partner, and then HSV-2 and trich from a one night stand. What’s interesting here is disclosure. Health care providers can offer information to support a patient disclosing to their recent part…
 
Marc is a 31 year old heterosexual male who’s a beginner in the Kink/BDSM community and identifies as sex positive. He joins us to share his journey of having been diagnosed with HSV-1 orally and genitally after a one night stand that consisted of receiving oral sex in another country. We discuss the road to sex-positivity through various support g…
 
Beginning this project, I had a hypothesis that people who tested positive for an STI would not find the resources they obtained from health care providers useful if they’ve been given any resources at all. Only one response was yes to the information being useful, but with the caveat that it was very basic. Another consistency with the SPFPP 2021 …
 
Our guest Kevin speaks to his personal experiences as someone who just wants to connect and has a genuine interest in vulnerability. We share some of his experiences with the men he was sexually active with before his herpes diagnosis and how that shifted for him AFTER his diagnosis. What I love most about his podcast episode is that he never speak…
 
This is a very important podcast episode for me. The reason is, that I am getting out of my own way and allowing myself to receive for once. It's been a very egoic thing for me to assume people will do for me just because I'm "good" or they "like" me, when the reality is that I'm running a business and enabling people to take advantage of me/my tim…
 
After some challenging reflections I have to put my ego to the side and begin to run this business like a business. Yes it's a non profit, but I see the impact in relation to where other . . . less impactful organizations are providing less and receiving more investment from us. The changes are going to be better for myself and the SPFPP community …
 
Jamie Cawelti is the Executive Director of Sex Positive World, and runs Given Consent! I asked Jamie to join us for a workshop for folks living with herpes as a way of introducing them to the self-reflective tools and support resources people struggle to find their way to, but are always thankful they found them. So much of the non-sex components o…
 
I get tested for HIV, chlamydia, ghonnorea, syphillis (actually I didn't for this one because I was recently tested for that one), hepatitis c (which is on the rise) with Pivot Health here in Portland, Oregon! Listen to the process here on this episode of SPFPP!De către Courtney Brame
 
When you spend so long in an identity that's safe for you, what happens is you attempt to become that person. I became Honmychest not realizing it was supposed to serve a purpose of just getting me through the villanry that is stigma. I downplayed and forgot how to be me. I'm figuring that out more for myself now as I navigate things I want to do f…
 
The Iron Man Suit served Tony Stark very well to get him out of the unfortunate circumstance he was in. It definitely saved his life, but more importantly, outside looking in, it changed his life. When you take a much deeper look though, I am willing to argue that the suit didn't do anything at all. The creation of it came from Tony himself because…
 
I visited home for 10 days and got to witness the challenge of being who I am or reverting back to who I think others think I am. I had an interesting handful of experiences. I will say, I cannot wait to get back to Portland though and develop a new routine incorporating journaling into it as well. This trip home empowered me to revisit family, fri…
 
Woo! If you liked Manifesto, you'll love Selfed. The more I speak to it, the more clearly it begins to define the healing process in a way that makes sense. The uncoupling of identity from its association is the working definition I have for selfed. Looking at life as the pursuit of wholeness with the expected pursuit to look like what society labe…
 
I've put a pause on my social media posting for Something Positive for Positive People in order to make space for awareness of actions to take regarding the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade which protected people's access to abortion. Herpes conversations take the back seat because to human rights and it just doesn't feel right posting as if no…
 
Julian shares his struggles with addiction and his healing process while recovering in community. What I love about this episode is that we have a masculine presence here, not in the sense of in relation to the feminine or exclusively to sex. We are able to put a vulnerability lens to our displays of masculinity hopefully as an example for other me…
 
RSVP Here: https://forms.gle/MWSddcXYDahE4yqV6 I’ll send the calendar invites out the week of the event July 21 @6:30pm-8:30pm Pacific time.

The 69 is all about perspective. I've had a healing experience that impacted me immediately because I decided to finally ask for what I needed, which is foreign to me as someone who's been disappointed so often by people. What I learned is that I've created a narrative about my beliefs that stems from thinking that I know what other people think of…
 
There’s a difference between having needs and being needy. Asking for what you need is often also synonymous with begging, and no one wants to be a beggar, so in that, no one wants to ask others for what they need. This episode offers an opportunity to reframe how we view having needs, as well as folks’ reactions to us asking for what we need. I th…
 
The shorter the podcast episode title, the bigger the message. This is another solo episode with a real emphasis on our narratives. The unfinished business we have with our primary caregivers who nurtured us gave us experiences that allowed us to form a narrative around. This narrative becomes our beliefs. Challenging our beliefs, we begin to griev…
 
I strongly recommend listening to episode 232 titled "dating" prior to listening to this episode on relationships. What I've come to learn in my 5 years running SPFPP is that the relationships that include sex are the ones that carry a significantly higher value to us when it's our friendships and other non-sexual relationships that allow for us to…
 
Identifying the most recent event that triggered you in dating can often be tied to one of the first triggering dating experiences you've had. Don't try to find consistency in the situations, but instead, loo, for the consistency in emotion and you can tie it all together. I use my own dating experience lows as an example for you to work with when …
 
We conclude part 1 which we just abruptly ran out of time for considering how deep the conversation got compared to how we had intended. I wanted to speak about being former athletes and how that navigated herpes which we eventually got to organically haha, but we took a JOURNEY to get here that was unexpected but was absolutely necessary. We spoke…

Trigger Warnings of abuse, sexual assault, and some new revelations our guest Tammy had during our discussion. This can be challenging to listen to, so I encourage you to take care of yourself as you listen, or honestly maybe skip this one altogether. Abuse looks a variety of ways and what we discuss here are some identifiers of potential abuse. Ag…
 
Laureen (not HD) is a trauma therapist, bikini competitor, East coaster, and a human who has experienced excessive bullying for most of her life for various reasons. I wanna preface this episode by asking that you respect her bravery in making herself accessible to people by not making any comments about her physical appearance please. It was amazi…
 
Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette in Portland, Oregon joins us for a conversation that taught me a few things I hadn't known before. For instance, I was completely unaware that after you receive treatment from a healthcare facility, you can make an appointment to ask questions. I don't know why but I absolutely thought appointments were exclus…
 
We speak to many aspects of assessing compatibility. For instance, if someone lives too far, and you’re unwilling to commute 45 minutes to visit, and that’s your dealbreaker then that has nothing to do with a person just not a fit for something important to you like closeness. That’s one example to be considered when deciding who’s worth the “risk”…
 
That phrase, ignorance is bliss has officially been cancelled. It’s ignorance that perpetuates stereotypes that keep unfavorable circumstances of the status quo uplifted. In this case, the status quo being that we don’t speak about the reality of potentially having already been exposed to herpes far before we either have someone share their positiv…
 
To this day, a Pandemic, a new baby, and ongoing sexual relations with a herpes positive partner are all seemingly nothing in the grand scheme of being clear on his values and bigger picture. Knowing what you want, AND being confident enough to say whether or not someone has the potential of providing that for you is really where the magic is. Are …
 
Here we have the first of what I hope to be many shared experiences of people who have dated someone living with herpes while not having had symptoms or tested positive themselves. Our guest Laura shares what her experience has been dating someone non monogamously for more than a year.On this episode we chat about how she received her partner’s sta…
 
As I've been applying for grants/funding and experiencing rejection on a regular basis, I've come to realize through this series of recordings that I'm trying to fit in to places where I'm not blank enough. I'm not queer enough, black enough, or manly enough to belong in those spaces. This translates into SPFPP because it isn't enough about sex, me…
 
Dr. Rob joins us in this series of Belonging as I just decided to name it. We discuss aspects of identity from a bit of a clinical perspective, in addition to my sharing of my experiences as I make out what Queerness means to me in relation to my Blackness. The title of Performative Blackness comes into place as a representation of MY Black experie…
 
Two straight black dudes talk about queerness with curiosity. We not only discuss our relationships to queerness, but also our blackness and our manliness. This episode is in a way, a bat signal for those who can relate to the topic of these intersecting and at the same time conflicting. Patric and I talk about being black but not the right kind of…
 
Here's a practical exercise to get to the core of your being through challenging and chizzling away at the social norms projected onto us. These projected identities are not who we are but who others think we are, and we play the role accordingly, UNLESS we challenge these. When we begin to challenge them, we transcend the meaning of the labels and…
