Let’s Talk About Sex: Podcast Edition

When it comes to conversations about sexuality and our bodies, many of us still carry insecurities. We’re told we’re not good/big/small/firm enough, and that the people or things we’re attracted to are weird or inappropriate. It’s saddening just thinking about how pervasive this line of thinking is, and that it still exists. However, you can break the silence and join in on the conversations being had by some of the most compelling and enlightening people you could imagine.

Make the most of your downtime, and indulge in empowering and hilarious podcasts about sex, relationships, bodies, and fetishes. After all, the best part about headphones is the ambiguity. Happy listening! 

Why Are People Into That?! 

Tina Horn is a sexpert, erotica author, and feminist pornographer. In this podcast, Tina explores sex, love, gender, and kink through in-depth interviews with experts on the topic. Each episode focuses on one topic at a time, ranging from prostate massage and sexting, to hair pulling and spanking. She non-judgmentally brings up the question: why are people into that? Together with her guests, Tina provides us with answers to all of the loaded questions that we wouldn’t dare to ask ourselves. Not only is this podcast educational, entertaining, and extremely interesting, it may even make you explore (and get hooked on) stuff you didn’t even know existed.

Sex Talk With my Mom

Sex Talk With My Mom explores the dynamic between a sexually-liberated, sex expert cougar mom, and her stand-up comic son, while offering sex, dating, and relationship advice. When KarenLee and Cam Poter aren’t discussing things like clit-blocks, phone sex, and foot fetishes, they’re interviewing porn stars and sexperts. Listening to someone talking to their mother about stuff you might even find cringeworthy discussing with your friends can get a little uncomfortable at times. But even at it’s most awkward moments, this podcast is absolutely brilliant!

The BodCast

The BodCast from Bustle magazine aims to cover radical body positivity, fat positivity, and visibility for all identities. With a focus on plus size life, host Marie Southard- Ospina talks about what it’s like to exist in a marginalized body, and the many ways media, fashion, and culture at large are failing to recognize the infinite expressions and shapes of womanhood.

My Dad Wrote a Porno

Imagine if your Dad wrote a dirty book. Most people would try to ignore it and pretend it had never happened - but not Jamie Morton. Instead, he decided to read it out loud to the world. With the help of his friends, James Cooper, and BBC Radio 1's Alice Levine, Jamie reads a chapter a week and discovers more about his father than he’d ever bargained for. This podcast may not be the biggest turn on, but each episode is sure to have you laughing out loud throughout, giving you every excuse ever needed to talk about bondage, threesomes, and ‘working on the job’. After the success of season one, the second season has just kicked off, and it is no less hilarious than the first one!  

Unscrewed

Unscrewed is a podcast discussing all the ways our sexual culture is screwed up, and what it will take to change it. Host Jaclyn Friedman untangles the complicated world of sex advice and sexual culture with a rotating cast of incredibly smart and interesting guests. Unscrewed welcomes questions from its listeners, and discusses subjects such as why masturbation is still considered taboo, and if a man calling someone “the tits” can really be considered a compliment.  

HuffPost Love+Sex

Huffington Post’s own sex and relationships podcast is a show that seeks to redefine the way we talk about love and sex by examining it from an anthropological perspective. Hosts Noah Michelson and Carina Kolodny begin each episode with a single question. Things like “How will Artificial Intelligence change the future of sex?” Or, “What is going to a sex party really like?” With the help of listeners and experts, they find the answers they need.

B Stories

A collection of non-political, lighthearted stories about boobies told by women and men. Each episode of this awesome podcast contains, in one way or another, an incredible breast-related story. In the longer episodes, we get to meet fascinating individuals like Amber, the romantic novel-writing priest who tattooed her breasts.  In the shorter ‘minisodes’, we get to hear stories like the one about M, who experienced an accidental boob flash during a night late night dip in a pool.
