Birds and Bees Podcast

Birds and Bees Podcast is a sex positive education podcast with a specific goal in mind, to empower parents and couples to have sexual health conversations with each other and with their children. We strive to meet this goal by interviewing experts in their respective fields to provide listeners with tools to discuss topics in regards to: sexual development, building intimate connection, sexual health and healthy communication. We believe parents should have a source of reliable information they can turn to as they teach their kids about sexuality. Many parents feel they don’t know enough about sex to answer their child’s questions, how to bring up sexual topics, when to bring them up etc. We want this podcast to be your personal reference you can turn to when you have questions.

Braxton Dutson and Alisha Worthington talk candidly about child sexual development from birth to adulthood and beyond. Alisha pulls from her many years as a sex educator, and as a mother of seven children, to answer common questions parents have about their child’s sexual development. Children go through many sexual developments such as: running around naked, masturbation, playing doctor, asking about sexual practices, just to name a few. Alisha and Braxton dive into some simple actions you can take as a parent to understand the development of your child and how to manage the feelings of uncertainty you may feel as a parent.

Because of the impossibility to pinpoint exact ages when kids and adolescents experience (or don’t experience) certain developments. We talk in approximate ages you may see certain behaviors.

Attention! Due to the nature of the topic, anatomically correct body terms are used in the show (ex. Penis, Vulva, Vagina etc.) as well as some examples of slang teens may ask their parents to define. The content of this show is meant to educate on a broad spectrum, and should not be used in lieu of a primary care physician. If you are concerned about your child’s development, please seek out individualized professional support.
