Tersha Willis | Why sex toys could make a good merch

Co-founder of terrible* - musicians and creators focused platform to source & sell products online + IRL

The Communities Show feels like a conversation with a friend 🥰. Sometimes you can geek out on the most serious topics and it is cool (Laís de Oliveira comes to mind). But sometimes you want to just chill and enjoy your time (remember the episode with Alex Lakatos?).
