TMSG 008: Carlyle Jansen


This episode features none other than founder of the Toronto sex shop, Good For Her, Carlyle Jansen. She joined us in studio to share her experiences growing up in a conservative household and what that meant for her sexual journey. In addition to being the owner of Good For Her, Carlyle is also the producer of the (now 10th annual) Feminist Porn Awards, happening in Toronto on Friday, April 17th. We talked about the birth of the awards and how it’s evolved over the years from one small event to multiple days of conversation, screenings, and fancy parties.
