I'm Not Your Exotic Girlfriend
Show Notes

In this episode, we discuss interracial dating, sex, romance, intimacy, the whole deal! 
How we are not your exotic girlfriends, your world is just as foreign to us. 

  • We speak about how internalised racism has affected how we date. 
  • Do you have to spend more time defending your relationship than having one? 
  • What does it feel like to sleep with the colonial standard of beauty? 
  • Can you have emotional intimacy with those in places of privilege? 
  • Where does the term exotic come from? 

We reflect on our dating history very honestly, some of it we are not proud of. But, the only way to move forward and grow is to admit to yourself where you have gone wrong too. 

We hope you can get a good laugh out of this episode and can reflect on your own dating history! 

Our podcast acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea, and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today. We recognise our privilege as migrants recording on this land and know that it always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
