Ariel Meadow Stallings became internet famous at the OffBeat Bride and is now the author of a nuanced self-help book “From Sh!tshow to Afterglow: Putting Life Back Together When It All Falls Apart”. She wrote the books after dealing with her own medical crisis, divorce, and business setbacks that left her life in shambles. Today, she’s joining us from the home recording studio inside her closet!
Ariel talks about how her identity as an “offbeat bride” then added another aspect of complication to her divorce. In the midst of feeling like she was falling apart, she turned to BDSM therapy. Through her traditional therapy, she talked through a new sexual exploration she wanted to go on after her divorce. This experience allowed her to grapple with the ideas of resistance and surrender with her issues. Ariel talks about her journey into this new world of BDSM and teaches Donnica what a glory hole is!
