Black History Month Continues
Black History Month continues, and this week we take a look at the importance of safe havens for pleasure‚ÄĒespecially for black Americans. We analyze the not so subtle racism of sex toys and more in Is Your Dildo Racist? We get invited to the barbecue in On Blackness, Pleasure and the Cookout. And finally, we celebrate black bodies with November 2019 Playmate Gillian Chan in Better Nature.

November 2019 Playmate Gillian Chan deftly balances working the camera with working to change the way we think about mental health.
