What To Do When Your Potential Employer Is Also Your Rapist

Bonjour and top of the morning dear Establishers. Get ready to get Unscrewed.

In this week’s quickiesode, host Jaclyn Friedman is curious what delectable, brilliant, or straight-up tingle-inducing smut you’re all keen to read this summer — drop her a line on the Twittersphere, or her good old-fashioned inbox.

You’ll also get an amazing throwback from Unscrewed’s previous incarnation — The Yes Means Yes show — with JoAnn Loulan, boasting all the ins and outs of the messy wonderland that is period sex, from dedicated towel usage to throwing off the heavy yoke of body shame.

Jaclyn also offers up some painful — and imperative — advice to a listener wondering if she can work with a man who once sexually assaulted her in college; together she and the inimitable Brittney Cooper (last week’s guest on #blackchurchsex) guide her through the shoals of self-doubt, survivordom, and self-preservation.

Get at it right here.


Full new episodes of Unscrewed go live every other Tuesday, with quickiesodes boasting outtakes, advice for listeners who send in their sex/uality questions, and other delectable tidbits airing in between.

Have burning quandaries of your own? Tweet @jaclynf (use #Unscrewed) or drop her a line at unscrewed@jaclynfriedman.com. And yes! You can even use your handy-dandy smartphone, personal computer, or laptop and record yourself asking your question; she may just include it in the next episode.
