Lady Lucia (Activist, Performer, Sex Worker) was raised Buddhist and majored in Gender and Women's studies.  Her identity was defined by activism, particularly Climate Justice, and to fund a trip to Germany (as a delegate at the UN Climate Talks) she started exotic dancing--though she had never been in a strip club previously.  At the same time, she was burning out from her activism work and experienced a mental breakdown.  How did she found empowerment in sex work and burlesque dancing?  Listen to this episode!  It's a GREAT one and sex work NEEDS to be talked about!

We also discuss 
her first time having sex for money, 
idealism + disillusionment, 
spirituality + witchcraft, 
sugar-daddying, 
animal liberation, 
FOSTA, 
sex work stigma and decriminalization, 
existential depression, 
eating disorders, 
general anxiety disorder, 
looking outside of capitalism for liberation, 
and SO much more!

Thanks so much for listening, friend!

Sabrina Benaim (poet/writer) explains how finding a squash-ball-sized tumor in her twenties led to her vocalizing her feelings and mental health struggles through slam poetry.  Her first mental breakdown was in tenth grade, but she wasn't diagnosed until she was 24.  When she was a kid, she felt like a weirdo, and learned to not talk about her feelings, but now she tours the world, sharing her poems with audiences, breaking down stigma and spreading awareness of mental health.  Sabrina and I alternate between laughter and seriousness in this wonderful episode!

We also talk about: 
writing as catharsis/therapy, 
travelling with mental illness, 
depression + anxiety, 
panic attacks, 
isolation, 
positive social media, 
dance as therapy, 
spirituality + meditation + tarot cards, 
synchronicities, 
John Mayer, 
powerful films, 
and MUCH more!

Sabrina is the author of Depression and Other Magic Tricks and can be found on instagram @badass_sab
