Fuck YES! In this episode, Kimbree from Vibin' tells us all about her upcoming sex-toy subscription business centred around fat femmes of colour and their self-pleasure. In her search for representation within the sex-toy industry , she found little but frustration and turned that energy into entrepreneurship! The site goes live in about a week so YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST! We discover her childhood in upstate New York, within a mixed race family of Trump supporters to her coming of age in university. Yes, you read that right. We talk about unlearning, privilege, feminism and fatphobia, within the first 5 minutes. So saddle up, and hop on yet another rabbit-hole-filled ride. Topics:  masturbation, racism, elitism, entrepreneurship, fat bodies and self-love, pleasure, sextoys, representation, self-love, cancel culture, being considered "illegitimately political", accountability & empathy, success & capitalism, inequality and SO MUCH MORE! For more on Kimbree and her business, go to biggirlvibes.com, or to @biggirlvibes on Instagram! Thanks again for listening my loves. Speak to you on the next one! C, xxx.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/runningwildwithchristine/support
Well my lovers, welcome to another intimate one. Sam is one of my all time favourite girl crushes IRL. We met on Tinder, and the rest, well, ... is now public. During this episode, you will hear us discussing our versions of non-monogamy, from the perspectives of bisexual women in committed, open relationships with male primary partners. We talk about Sam's path to today, her relationships, her breakthroughs and tribulations. It's quite a ride, so join us! Fave quote: "No one person will ever encompass everything that you want in a partner, so I guess you'll just have to... be a hoe." Topics: straight-passing monogamous-passing privilege, realizing your sexuality, the toxic aspects of jealousy in monogamy, communication, sex, creating rules and setting boundaries, dessert analogies for ambivalent sexual experiences (specifically when swinging!), dating, assumed monogamy, coming out, anxieties, happiness, libido drops & self-esteem, AND SO MANY GIGGLES! I hope this answers some of your burning questions about non-monogamy, love, life and people who do things weirdly. Now go and have some fun on your extra-curricular activities. All my love, C. xox--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/runningwildwithchristine/support

Ooof.. What to say! This one is so very near and dear to me. Bryan is my work husband. We have spent on average 14h/day together for most of 2019 and over the course of it, we have gotten to know each other quite well. It quickly became clear to me that he had a story to tell and so this day was a long time coming. In this witty and vulnerable episode, we uncover what it's like to be in an emotionally, and at times physically, abusive relationship in a small town, from a male perspective (in a heterosexual relationship.) His story, though not often covered, is indicative of the pervasive and stigmatized narrative of mental and emotional abuse within toxic masculinity. In this episode, we retrace the twists and turns of Bryan's life from his small town in Nova Scotia, to the self-discovery of his own potential and break from toxic patterns. TW: emotional, physical and sexual abuse.Topics covered: mental health, codependence, telling mom about oral sex, dating in a small town, substance abuse, sexual bucket lists, moderation, emotional baggage, self-doubt, family patterns, anger, talking about feelings(!!!), self-worth, the irrational fear of travelling, the film industry life and many, many hilarious stories.I hope you enjoyed this refreshing dose of friendship and sharing. I hope it inspires you to spend some time with a friend and open up. Maybe it even sparks the guts to leave the person you're with, or stops you from consistently talking yourself down, or shuts the voices in your head up for a second. I wish that for you. Take a minute and breathe. There's a whole wide world and a whole new life on the other side, and it's all one small step at a time. I believe in ya. As always,  you have my heart. C. xoxo--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/runningwildwithchristine/support

60-EFFING-5! With my gal Sally from Mannerswear! I met Sally at her stall in Spitalfields Market, where she sells awesome bodycon clothing. She serendipitously asked ME to hang out a while as her stalker ex-boyfriend was lurking around and she didn't know what to do. After much giggling, I naturally bought a dress from the loud, exuberant and so very loveable gal. What follows is an unlikely instagram friendship, and my introduction to her phenomenal (feminist AF) world.  This episode is nuts, as are the two of us. Tune in for the hilarious and empowering story of Sally's life and business. We retrace her globetrotting steps through bad relationships and impulse decisions, to find ourselves in an ever shifting space that continues to improve as we learn. (I'm serious; her story is RIDICULOUSLY hilarious and entertaining. Listen in!) Topics: bad relationships, perseverance, parenting a boy, FUCK BRAS, body image (always!), going on Dragon's Den, feeling invincible, catcalling vs banter, women supporting women,  UNDERBOOB SWEAT!, the current paradigm shift, trying things and not being afraid, expecting the complicated and making things hard! For more on Mannerswear,  I URGE YOU to go to mannersldn.com or @mannerswear on the socials! And seriously, GET YOURSELF SOME MANNERS for your bodayyyy. <3 BOTTOM LINE: It doesn't have to be that hard, this life thing. As per usual, I give you all of my love. C. xox--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/runningwildwithchristine/support
Hello beautiful souls!  Welcome back! Today, Jess DeVries brings us a FASCINATING life story! She grew up Evangelical Christian during the crux of the purity movement and is now a somatic sex & intimacy coach. Yes, so many questions, I know. We retrace the steps through her childhood and "loss of virginity", to finding a purpose via arts degrees and people services jobs. Topics: shame, guilt, healing, sexuality & "sacred whores", dating people who end up affecting the trajectory, expectations vs reality, what is somatica, listening to your body, christianity, consent & self-doubt, naming and treating "purity culture" as trauma, white supremacy, learning and allyship, for starters! This peaceful and calm episode lets you take a breather and follow along a path that may have looked chaotic but makes a lot more sense when you take the time to breathe and reflect. I think we all need a bit of Jess vibes this beautiful Friday. For more on Jess go to her website belovedcoaching.net, or find her on Facebook or Insta @belovedcoaching.
