No one will f*ck me, I will f*ck them – Shasta

Shasta is a 45-year-old, cis-gender woman who describes herself as Canadian First Nation/Cree, heterosexual, monogamous, and married to her husband who she has been with for 20 years.

Major themes in this episode include:

  • balance of power in heterosexual relationships,
  • bedroom boredom in a long-term relationship, and
  • working to heal childhood issues as an adult

You can find Shasta online at www.ShastaTownsend.com. Her book, Happy, Sexy, Shameless – What Our Mother’s Didn’t Know About the Birds and the Bees, is available at Amazon.

  • 5:30 – Her first memory of sexual pleasure, masturbating at age 4

  • 9:30 – Rediscovering masturbation as an adult

  • 15:00 – The messages we hear about being a smart and outspoken female
  • 17:00 – Using sexual dominance as a protective measure, sexual prowess as power over men
  • 21:00 – The cultural balance in wanting men to pursue women and ask for things vs. men being perceived as aggressive/entitled
