Jennifer Chesak joins Diana to delve into the potential benefits of psilocybin for sexual health. They discuss how historical gender biases in medical research have led to a lack of treatments for AFAB-specific conditions and how women are turning to psychedelics for self-treatment. The conversation touches on the concept of ego death and oceanic boundlessness experienced during psilocybin use, which may enhance intimate partner communication and body image—two factors protective against female sexual dysfunction. While psilocybin isn't presented as an aphrodisiac or a cure-all, the episode suggests that both macro and microdoses of psilocybin could offer insights and support for women dealing with sexual health issues, emphasizing the importance of community support and integration therapy in the healing journey.
