Episode 3: Sarah Alison Miller on Historical Ideas of Women's Bodies & Isabel Dresler on Making Smut
We interview Classicist Sarah Alison Miller about leaky female bodies in Greco-Roman and Medieval literature, sexual assault in Greco-Roman myths, body fluids, mystics, and witches! 

We also talk to queer photographer and content creator Isabel Dresler (@isabeldresler) about making smut. We discuss her photography career, how her experience as a sex worker informs her art, why she isn't afraid to take selfies, and what it means to do porn ethically. 

We also discuss the Harvey Weinstein controversy and highlight Zoe Williams' article advocating for a bystander ethic.

And we discuss Robert Asterman's article on sex positivism and what we can learn from porn search analytics.
