59: Nicole Mazzeo
(Pleasure Pie) &
DIY Sex Positivity
WELCOME TO THE EDUPUNX PODCAST
Nicole Mazzeo runs the DIY sex-positive organization, Pleasure Pie. While Nicole was once located in Boston, she now resides oversees - in the Netherlands - which makes this our second international conversation of the year! We actually had this conversation at the beginning of October - before the podcast was corrupted, and before I was hit by a car last week. So it’s good to know that a lot has changed between then and now. But the conversation is full of fun reflection and perspectives on sex education, destigmatizing sexual health, and what it takes to be incredibly neurotic and keep up with so many projects.
Pleasure Pie is a small activist organization based in Boston, MA. Its efforts center around sex positivity, body positivity, and positivity about other good things. It makes alternative sexuality education materials (including zines, illustrations, and publications) and experiences (events, conversations, and workshops). Make sure to dig around pleasurepie.org to learn more about the fantastic work that Nicole and her crew do. And visit the Pleasure Pie Etsy shop as well and get yourself, or your students, a bunch of goodies!
- This week we shared tunes from the new Typesetter LP, “Nothing Blues,” which came out in October! You can get a digital copy of the album through 6131 Records!
- Typesetter is a vibrant indie emo act with the energy and sardonicism of bands like Tiny Moving Parts and Mom Jeans, to more elegant moments reminiscent of Foxing or Crash of Rhinos.
- In this episode, we played the songs,
- Also, all of the band’s music is already available FOR DOWNLOAD on their bandcamp site, so you have no reason to not download this album right now!
