Crystal has inspired me in so many ways from her community work to her shaving strike, but my favorite thing about her is after a traumatic hospital birth with her son she educated and empowered herself, and then had a planned, unassisted, home birth with her daughter. I just love that! She is inspiring and I love her!
In this 48-minute interview Crystal and I talk about children’s exposure to porn, masturbation, the on going sex talk, being present and not rushing childhood or adulthood, drugs (specifically meth), the awkwardness of one’s menarche, and more. If you’d like to digest it in smaller bits, I have a playlist called “Interview Clips: Issues Girls and Parents Face” where you can watch the interview one topic at a time. Let me know what you think!
Crystal Bowden currently resides with her husband and two children in Conyers, GA. She is passionate about her community and supporting other women in their endeavors. Crystal spends her time homeschooling her children, reading smutty novels, drinking wine and hardcore Netflixing when she is not running her two businesses, which is not frequent enough. She dreams of the day when she can afford to hire a personal assistant, so buy some leggings or books. You can buy those leggings here. Or some books here. Literacy is good, y’all!
