Continuing right along with our Pridepalooza content, I invited queer sexuality educator Eva Bloom on the show to chat with me about all things queer sex and dating. Queer and straight folks alike will benefit from the knowledge Eva shares in this episode about moving beyond sexual scripts, sexual compatibility, navigating sexting and dating apps, and more.

We discussed:

  • Who Eva is and what they’re passionate about.
  • The super-duper ally phase that many queer folks go through.
  • Common sexual scripts and rules that can hold people back.
  • Sexual compatibility.
  • Sexting and privacy concerns.
  • How to get started with dating as a baby queer in particular.
  • Why sexual experience isn’t everything.
  • The importance of communication for casual sexual encounters.
  • Not expecting sexual partners to be able to read your mind.
  • Other ways to find out what partners like besides asking “What do you like?”
  • How you can start to learn what kinds of sexual touch you enjoy through self-exploration.
  • What queerness is to Eva.
