Welcome to Celestial Sex, hosted by Chris Duce and produced by Colin Hatch, where we have frank and open conversations about sex. This week we speak with Conor Hilton about being ace- or asexual- and an active Mormon. What is it like for someone who doesn't experience sexual attraction? How do they make sense of that in a religion that emphasizes procreation as a step toward Godhood? We cover all of that, and we catch up with Conor one year after we recorded the first part of his interview to find out how he's doing now. Our thanks to Conor for speaking with us!

Welcome to Celestial Sex, hosted by Chris Duce, where we have frank conversations about sex and religion. In this episode, we speak with Kaisha Medford, the current president of Provo Pride- an LGBTQIA organization that hosts the annual Provo Pride parade as well as other LGBTQIA activities in Provo, UT and the surrounding area. We discuss the recent Freedom Festival in Provo and the attempted exclusion of queer organizations in their parade on the 4th of July. Discrimination against queer folks is unfortunately alive and well in Provo, and we wanted to shine a light on how they are overcoming these roadblocks.

Welcome back to Celestial Sex! This week we have the pleasure of speaking with Derrick Clements. He's the former host of The Pixar Podcast, currently the host of the podcast Mosaic, and recently released an episode titled #MormonMeToo Part 1: The First Law of Heaven which we discuss in depth on this week's episode. Specifically, we tackle the overarching theme of his episode which is obedience- to church leaders, commandments like the law of chastity, and men in general- and how that relates to instances of sexual assault, like in the case of McKenna Denson by Joseph Bishop, her former MTC President. Derrick was an excellent guest, and we highly recommend listening to his podcast at this link-
