The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

It’s Sex Positive September, and in celebration, we’re diving back into our catalog to when Dr. Lexx Brown-James joined us to discuss Black women’s sexuality agency and pleasure. When this episode was initially released, Cardi B & Meg the Stallion had just dropped WAP and the single set the internet on fire. In a new timely release, Meg and Cardi are back with another hit, “Bongos,” a sex-positive anthem perfect for celebrating Sex Positive September. In this episode, Dr. Lexx and I tackled the stereotypes often associated with Black women’s sexuality, shame, respectability politics, and agency’s role in sexual liberation. We also explored ways to confront our sexual shame and foster healthier attitudes toward sexuality for the next generation.
