The Natasha Helfer Podcast is here!
Lisa Diamond joins Natasha on this first episode to discuss the evolution of sexuality.
Lisa M. Diamond is an American psychologist and feminist. She is a professor of developmental psychology, health psychology and gender studies at the University of Utah. Her research focuses on sexual orientation development, sexual identity, bonding and social safety.
She is best known for her 2008 book, "Sexual Fluidity: Understanding Women's Love and Desire." In this book, she discusses the fluidity of female sexuality, based on her study of 100 non-heterosexual women over a period of 10 years. This was ground-breaking work and carries huge implications worthy of discussion especially for faith communities impacted by high-demand/conservative religion and religious dogma. We are going to talk ALL about this the evolution and shifts of sexuality being NORMAL, while not allowing religious communities to use the idea of "choice" to shame and belittle normative human development.
