Merry Christmas everyone! I am giving you the gift of sex positivity and herpes simplex virus (HSV) awareness today with my guest, Trisha of Safe Slut! Trisha is a safe sex advocate and is big on Instagram and TikTok for her transparency of living with HSV 2. A fan requested that I reach out to her for all of the awareness work that she does so I was stoked when she was willing to come on to share her story. As human beings, we all have sex. As sex workers, some of us choose to engage in FSSW, pornography and collaborations with other creators so frequent testing and being aware of what to look out for when it comes to HSV specifically. Trisha has immersed herself completely in learning as much information about the virus, how its contracted and how it spreads, and how to navigate conversations about STIs with your partners, clients or people you might be sleeping with. It’s an insanely informative episode and I hope you all enjoy the episode! Happy holidays!
