On this Mama Bear Mini episode, co-hosts Tesi and Leslie grab the mic and talk through several ideas and concerns, namely, The Orgasm Gap. The sisters knew that women were paid less in the workplace, but the rewards differ in bedroom as well? This required some conversation. In a lively We Read It, We Loved It, Let's Discuss, the women talk about the article entitled Straight Women Are Having Fewer Orgasms Than Everyone Else and endeavor to figure out why this is so and encourage plentiful orgasms for all. The sisters also spend time pointing out the goodness and hope in the world with one of their favorite segments, WE SEE YOU! They share observations of what they've seen in their own lives and celebrate small acts of bravery and love. The episode ends with an OBSESH SESH in which Tesi and Leslie mention what they're currently loving and leave listeners with a dare for braver, more joyful living.
