Episode 86: Sex in the Mormon News August 2018


Shannon Hickman of Core Healing Counseling and Kristin Hodson join Natasha on this month’s Sex in the Mormon News. On this episode, they discuss several articles which include their criticism about an article coming out of BYU Idaho that talks about why comprehensive sex ed is damaging, discussion around the Mormon Mental Health statement that recently was released about worthiness interviews and then the policy that is harmful to homosexual members in the church.


Also, Christine tells her experience dealing with state legislature trying to teach consent in classrooms.
