Sexual sovereignty may sound complicated but the concept is simple. Dr. Saida Desilets (http://saidadesilets.com/) describes sexually sovereign as being in control of your own sexuality – and it goes beyond gender and sexual orientation. It is the very basic right of deciding for yourself who you love and how you love. But it goes further than that. It is about setting and respecting boundaries. It is about acknowledging people’s comfort level and not pushing people into awkward situations. It starts with kids and extends to women and men into their 70s, 80s and beyond.
Saida, Karyn and Jean had a great discussion that went from defining sexual sovereignty to what it looks like in real life and all the way to the “Me Too” movement and what should happen next.
