Tune in to WYBCx Yale Radio on Mondays from 4p–5p EST throughout the fall semester for our second season of live broadcast, and stay tuned for a podcast of the current episode to be posted right to this page. We will be bringing feminist music theory, politics, and cultural commentary into the radio world. Our show is genre-bridging, consisting of a mixture of public affairs talk and music; we bring in guests from the magazine and other spheres of campus life to discuss pressing issues. There is humor, biting wit, twitter beefs, and original written work.
In this episode, we’re talking about masturbation and female pleasure. Nicki Minaj, Ciara, Cyndi Lauper, and many more! Talking about female masturbation is often taboo, but these artists aren’t afraid to talk about these “sensitive” topics. We also address the difference between songs about giving and getting pleasure. We share our own stories and experience with masturbation. Why did we think it was bad? How do girls come to internalize this shame surrounding this totally normal act? Listen in and learn more about masturbation!
BROADScast is managed and edited by Margaret Lee, and includes commentary from Kathy Amiliategui, Zine Editor; Leah Shrestinian, Associate Editor; and Nicole Pina.
