Unwinding the Shame of Purity Culture with Amanda Testa

In this Touchy Subjects Podcast episode, Sex, Love, and Relationship Coach Amanda Testa shares her deconstruction journey from a conservative Southern Baptist upbringing to becoming a sex coach. The conversation explores the impact of purity culture on self-worth, relationships, and societal expectations, emphasizing the importance of embracing a positive and informed approach to sexuality.

Key Takeaways:

  • Purity culture sucks: It messes with self-worth, objectifies people, and puts unfair pressure on women.
  • Let's talk about sex, baby: The podcast encourages relearning how we view and discuss sexuality, focusing on understanding our bodies and prioritizing our own needs and desires.
  • Sexy growth: Embracing a positive attitude towards sexuality can lead to personal growth and stronger connections, so let's ditch the old, outdated narratives.

About the Podcast

Touchy Subjects Podcast
The Touchy Subjects Podcast has been designed to unpack the proverbial elephants in the Church- i.e. the topics no one wants to talk about! We want to create space for an open dialogue on issues like social justice, mental health, women in leadership, homosexuality, legalism, and more. 

The panelists that are speaking on this podcast have been intentionally chosen to tell their story from their perspective without censorship. Some panelists are pastors or church leaders, some panelists are deconstructing their faith, and some panelists are subject matter experts on a topic whose guidance can help this audience.

Our mission is not to expose the Church, but to have conversations that will open eyes, open ears and open hearts toward growth, healing, and unity.
