On this episode, we are sharing stories from our listeners about dating as a woman of color, from messages they receive on apps to partners not understanding their experiences to fetishization. We're also bringing on a former (and favorite) guest Amy Chan, founder of Breakup Bootcamp, to discuss her experience growing up as an Asian woman, feeling shame as a child to leaning into the sexy stereotypes as a young woman, and her mindset today. We also discuss how to talk to your partner about these topics. And before we dive in, we're up to our usual antics with a divorced dude date story from Rayna, Ashley being single-shamed, and a tip for taking your phone sex to the next level. Enjoy!
