Touch Podcast Ep 8: Virginity and Porn with Dr. Tina Schermer-Sellers

Episode 8 explores the topic of visual erotica (porn) and virginity. Before Ryan and Nate finish their conversation with Dr. Tina Shermer-Sellers from episode 7, we listen to one of the stories they recorded back in the fall in Nashville. Lauren, a divinity school student at Vanderbilt, talks about how she viewed sex and virginity growing up as a preacher’s kid. 

Nate is overcome with emotion when he is surprised by Dr. Seller’s response to Ryan’s question about people of faith making and consuming erotica. Dr. Sellers gives some guidelines about explicit sexual content and offers a touching word of encouragement to Nate.
