Erika takes on a chat with MMA coach, and host of “The Takedown”, Josh Thomas about brain injury and making decisions that protect athletes (and, subsequently, their partners). They emphasize the importance of preventive activity, and the requirement for athletes to speak with their partners openly and consensually when negotiating sexual activity and dynamics. Erika gains some enlightenment on masculinity and progressivism in the MMA community and Josh offers his own quarantine sex tips.
