Today we’re talking about autism, orgy’s, lemon thievery, weighted blankets, feeling like an outcast, being called weird but learning to not give a hoot! (Sh*t’s about to get weird y’all, put the kids to bed!) Jess, better known as “Jess the Prequel” on Instagram, is a comedian and host of PILF podcast, a sex-positive show where she delves into topics relating to love and relationships. Jess is proudly outspoken about being on the autism spectrum, and uses her platform to normalize autism, and break the myths and misconceptions related to the three A’s: Autism, ADHD, and Anxiety. We’re excited she’s joined us today. This is a fun one, enjoy!
