    If I knew this podcast existed when I was 17 yrs old (and knew the value of it) I would have paid $1000 to listen to it.

    I want to create a BYU-IDAHO scholarship in either Natasha’s OR Callister’s name….in which the only requirement is that you would have to admit publically you masturbated in the past 2 years.

    I should also create a ‘wedding scholarship’ for women.. who are willing to marry LDS male RM virgins who admit they masturbated as well.

    I made a contribution. I hope this podcast goes far and wide. The only humans that could possibly benefit are those that have a biological mandate to reproduce.

    I wept with you Heather, remembering the time I walked into a hollow near my home with a shotgun intent on ending my self-loathing.

    My most optimistic self empathizes with the Callisters of the world. There’s no way a man who cowardly calls masturbation self-abuse, has ever felt his spouse’s body curl uncontrollably around his tongue in paroxysms of pleasure. He embodies Sister Hildegard from Philomena…cold, unsympathetic, mean. Not how I want my kids to grow up.

    I don’t know how you stick with it, Natasha. Hopefully you consider yourself a stop on the underground railroad as people navigate themselves out of the church or at least to a place of healthy disregard for the white male geritocracy.

    I understand how a young man might struggle in a sexually repressive culture, but I’d be interested in having Natasha profile what the struggle looks like for female members of the church.

    Keep up the good work, Expositor!

    So, something people totally forget to talk about with saying how children can be a consequence to this “sin”, you’ve just framed as being next to evil… Is that some of us are adopted. So, not only had my teenage mother been evil, but it was the horrible result of her horrible sin & that’s why I was a toss-away. With the added benefit of being half Native American, with ‘magically transformed blood’ is white, but just tan? Oh the joys of the many discussions I grew up hearing about fence-sitters in heaven @_@. Don’t get me wrong, I love my parents, but they had no clue what I was absorbing at church…
