Caution: Unrestricted! features conversations between Ignacio and Aredvi on breaking open sexual stigma and taboos. These are unsanitized version of untold stories, uncomfortable thoughts, and unsavory inquiries. This series is meant for adult survivors who are further along in their healing journey and are ready to engage in brutal, and at times sarcastic, truth-telling.
