Many of us are experiencing PTSD reactions from pandemic panic plus it’s affecting the mental health of those in alt-sex/relationship communities like BDSM, non-monogamy, LGBTQ+ and sex workers who are losing their livelihoods.

Coronavirus is impacting our access to sexuality and physical connection too–which is something many of us need for comfort, especially during trying times. Kate also answers the burning question, “Why are we buying so much damn toilet paper?” and the answer might surprise you. This conversation is jam-packed with workable solutions and free/low-cost resources for the mental turmoil we’re all going through right now.
