Episode 7 – Jessi

In this episode of Good Girls Talk About Sex, we talked with Jessi Kneeland, a 31-year-old cis-gendered white woman who is bisexual, monogamous, and currently single.

Jessi is a coach, speaker, writer, and altogether kickass person who is passionate about helping women to understand their bodies and their sexuality. She is the coach who has stood with me through my sexual exploration and reclaiming my body. You can find her online at www.JessiKneeland.com and on Instagram at @jessikneeland

Here are some of the amazing moments she shared with us:

  • 7:18 – The lessons she learned about body image in her young life

  • 16:45 – How detrimental it is to compare our trauma with other people’s trauma
