Episode Info: Humans owe a lot to breasts. Have these jiggly, wiggly bits of flesh always held such allure, and induced such revulsion? Is it human nature to be obsessed with breasts? The answer will surprise you. An episode several months in the making, Justina and I hope you enjoy this laughter filled conversation on the influence of the breast on European history, culture, fashion, and even- architecture? You’re have to listen to find out how, and to learn about how embracing her courtesan persona has helped Signora Justina gain control over the way she is sexually objectified by others. Quite a paradox! Show Notes This episode has been delayed a bit by complications from Hurricane Dorian, and I do hope you’ll enjoy the show notes written up by Signora Justina.
