DBM Episode 23 Mama’s Pleasure Matters



Dear Mama: Let’s take a deep dive past sex tips and tricks, beyond stimulation and center pleasure.  Pleasure lasts beyond orgasms. Pleasure pours into us, inspires us and touches our deepest creativity.  We’re talking nude yoga, Black porn, weekday sex and kundalini so this is what we call an #EarbudsEpisode meaning this episode contains explicit language of a sexual nature so you may wanna ask your little ones to put their earbuds in or pop yours in.

We wanna hear from you. So please keep emailing us, keep engaging with us through social media comments, your reviews, and SoundCloud comments. Please keep sharing us, even if it’s only with one other person. If you’re a new listener, welcome to the ride. Invest in us (all links in our show notes on our website) by becoming a DBM patron, buying merch or giving a one time donation.

Afrosexology:   Afrosexology was birthed out of our desire to experience a more sex-positive Black community. One that encourages self agency & promotes love in regards to our bodies, relationships, and sexualities. One that liberates us from the sexual shame & policing that we’ve inherited from generations of sexual & body oppression. One that follows in the tradition of Black sexual politics by seeking to rediscover & reclaim our sexuality. Our mission is to educate, explore, and reclaim Black sexuality.  Our vision is to promote Black self empowerment through sexual liberation.
