Melissa Febos: Hickeys, Daddy Issues, and Celibacy

Melissa Febos talks about how the conditions of our childhoods inform our adult relationships, dealing with daddy issues (yay!!!), and her new book, Abandon Me. Melissa also discusses the freedom in the lack of societal scripts around queer sex, why her life as a dominatrix helped prepare her for teaching higher ed, and why she chose to be celibate for six months.
