So here's the next part of my dialogue with Jane Prinsep which we've called why not me? part 2
You can download it here.
For anyone who's coming to this new, you should know that this dialogue was part of a series of Intimate Conversations on the subject of sex that we recorded in May and June, edited in July and shared initially at Latitude Festival's Fifth Edition earlier this summer in the UK.
And so you know what you're getting into, Jane's story begins with a description of being raped when she was 14.
Her story is a powerful one. And in some ways a disturbing one.
But it's not a story about being a victim. Far from it.
And for me it's not just a story about recovery.
It's about one woman's journey, moving from a time when she had control seized from her in the most horrible way to a place where she reclaims her life, her identity and her future.
Jane is a remarkable woman. I went over to Switzerland to meet her earlier this summer and after lunch by the lake we sat down and recorded a conversation. A dialogue.
Most conversations I record, I subsequently edit down to a 10-15 minutes version and share it with the world. But sometimes a conversation is so rich that it merits more than just a one part. And this is one of those.
Part 1 which you can download here received a lot of attention and downloads and for many people Jane has been already been an inspiration as you'll see by visiting her blog.
So here's Part 2.
Parts 3 and 4 will come in the next few weeks.
Thanks again Jane.
