Brown Sugar

This episode centers around dating as a black woman. We discuss the beauty standards surrounding hair and when we'd feel comfortable being wigless in front of a new partner. Black women face a constant seesaw of being either fetishised or deemed undesirable. This is compounded by cultural expectations and being asked "when will you marry!" at every family gathering. We break down how to set your standards confidently and believe that you don't need to 'settle' in order to settle down.
