This week we welcome Christina Kartchner to the studio to discuss her teenage years in the Mormon church, her early experiences with drugs and alcohol, and teenage sexual exploration. She talks about the ways in which she justified looking at porn when she was younger, where she thought boy's penises were located, and her current outlook on sex. We also approach the atonement from the post-mormon point of view.

Welcome to Celestial Sex- an interview series hosted by Chris Duce and produced by Colin Hatch about sex and love through the lens of Mormon upbringing. This week we talk to Jordan Michael Blake, a filmmaker living in Los Angeles, about being a good boy, deciding not to go on a mission, early- and frankly adorable- forays into self pleasure, going to BYU then NYU, and a life changing road trip to lose his virginity.

We discuss the idea that early experiences with sexual images may "burn themselves on your mind" and what that means outside of belief. We reference the article "The Naked People on Your iPod"- look it up! It's a great way to teach your kids about what to do when they encounter pornography. 

We also discuss the conversations Jordan had with his church leaders and parents when he was a teenager about sex, and how he dealt with shame. And how later on, he took charge of becoming the person he wants to be.

Welcome to Celestial Sex, an interview series hosted by Chris Duce and produced by Colin Hatch, where we have frank and open conversations with post-mormons and active mormons alike about their early sexual education and current outlook on sex. Their stories are funny, gross, revealing, and cathartic for anyone who grew up LDS. If you ever had to confess to your Bishop that you masturbated to biker porn on your dad's PC, you will be able to relate. 

In this intro episode, we outline our goals for the show, introduce ourselves, and set the general tone. While the show is open about any doubts we may have regarding the LDS church, the focus of the show is on the ways we learned about sex in the context of a mormon upbringing.

Chris Duce is a comedian and filmmaker in Los Angeles. He performs at the Upright Citizens Brigade theater, makes videos for a living, and is fascinated with human sexuality. 

Colin Hatch is a musician and producer in Los Angeles. His music is deeply personal, fun, and washes over you like the waters of baptism. He is also fascinated with human sexuality.

Chris and Colin are fans of Mormon Stories, Savage Lovecast, You Made It Weird, and The Work and the Glory.
