TWIH Episode 9: Asexuality in Paganism and Other Fantastic Things with Sarah Thompson


Sarah Thompson returns in this episode to talk about navigating pagan traditions and an asexual, especially when many traditions follow a fertility cycle based on the sexual union of a God and Goddess. How do we adapt and redact rituals and traditions in order to include those who don’t fit into the narrative? What is a “Relationship” and does a committed, intimate relationship always have to lead to sex?
