In the second episode of our series on Sex At Dawn, we ask some of our favorite mena big question—is lifelong traditional monogamy a powerful choice based in love or just some outdated societal programming? As the author Christopher Ryan points out in his book, one of the first things to go when Agriculturalism emerged was having sex with multiple partners as an accepted practice of many tribal societies. This religion-enforced monogamy has led to rampant infidelity, sky high divorce rates, and a society ashamed to be honest about wanting anything outside of traditional monogamous relationships. So what’s the fix? Poly for All-y? Or figuring out how to stay put in one relationship FOREVERRRRRRRRRR?
Welcome to Season 3 of Clit Talk where we return to our roots as a book club, featuring Christopher Ryan’s New York Times bestselling book Sex At Dawn. In today’s episode, we begin with bonobos and the birth of Agriculturalism. That’s right, apes People. It turns out that human DNA differs from that of bonobos by only 1.6%. Sex At Dawn lays out the theory that before Agriculturalism, human tribes behaved just like our close cousins—living in interwoven communities and sharing everything from food to land to sexual partners.
Women want to think of our pussies as a place of pleasure, love, and divine creation, yet many women in the world experience theirs as place of trauma—be it through sexual violence or disease. Once a woman’s pussy has been traumatized, how does she come back from it? Well, we’re here in the studio today with a woman who has done exactly that…with style and with humor. Tune in for the wisdom and wisecracks of creator and star of The Nanny—the one and only Fran F’ing Drescher!
If you missed the Oscars this year, you may not know that a film telling a story about the creation of a period pad machine in rural India won Best Documentary.

Today in the studio, we have three of the co-founders of The Pad Project, who along with their teacher and several other students, won the Oscar for the revolutionary film Period. End of Sentence.
We love the shit out of our fans…and today’s episode is inspired by questions from our beloved Clitterati.

Whether you are a man or a woman, listening to this may liberate you to the next level.
Ever had a partner who was really not into sex? Ever been indifferent or even repulsed by the thought of sex yourself? For some, this is a passing phase and for some it’s simply their sexual orientation. In fact, as the term LGBT has been expanding letter by letter and is now known in its glorious totality as “LGBTQIA,” the A in which stand for—yep, you guessed it—Asexuality! We brought British lingerie model and asexuality activist Yasmin Benoit into the studio to enlighten us on being “ace” and boy, did she ever!
Every pussy has a story to tell, and today the cast of Clit Talk went to a place called Pussy Church to hear they had to say.
