Sluts & Scholars is one of Cosmopolitan's "Hot Podcasts to Listen To." Nicoletta Heidegger is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (#110256) and Sexologist. She chats with folks from across sexuality, kink, and professional spectrums about desire, pleasure, shame, stigma and (of course) bodily functions. 

Combining irreverence and expertise, on the docket is anything remotely related to sexual, reproductive and bodily autonomy; from the indigenous menstrual practices of the Hupa Valley tribe, to beauty confidence advice from Dita von Teese,  anal sex pro tips from Jessica Drake, and Cyberstalking with Amber Heard. Join these slutty scholars as they help to make your sex smarter, and your smarts sexier.

Dr. Evelin Molina Dacker, MD is a Latinx-American, sex-positive Family Medicine physician. She applies her integrative and holistic approach to sexuality medicine, women’s health, preventative care, consent education and teaching. She is active in creating a safe space for LGBTQIA youth and adults and helping people through illness, trauma, and life transitions towards finding balance and joy. She incorporates a multidisciplinary approach with principles of gratitude and pleasure to support her patients in creating their own wellness.  Evelin has a special interest in reframing and re-educating people on Sexually Transmitted Infections. She sees our relationship with STIs as a metaphor for the fear and shame we have around our sexuality. As a practicing physician, this is encountered in her everyday healing. Her clinical and scientific knowledge, along with her lived experience as a Latinx, queer person, have given her a unique perspective that is beyond the Academic. Dr. Molina Dacker was awarded as the 2023 recipient of the Robert L. Haynie Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Award from her medical school, Case Western Reserve University. In addition to practicing medicine, Dr. Molina Dacker created the safer sex communication model STARS to help facilitate open and honest safer sex conversations. She is a community leader, a consent and sex educator, sexual health activist and TEDx speaker. Today we talk about Dr. Dacker's work, Functional Medicine, and the STARS framework.
