Masturbation is great and all, but sometimes you just want to settle down with a cup of tea and listen to people talking about sex. We’ve got a few fabulous suggestions – from the funny to the educational, and everything in between. Check out some of our top sex podcasts, and let us know which we’ve missed out in the comments or on Twitter!
Perhaps the most perfectly-titled of all the sex podcasts, the Dildorks is exactly what it sounds like: two fantastic people getting dorky about dildos (among many other sexy things!). Hosted by Bex Caputo and Kate Sloan, this podcast brims with fun and enthusiasm – and more than its fair share of wordplay. As evidenced by this excellent episode – Cockoisseurs, in which our hosts wax lyrical about penises.
First Time Pod
While we’re on the subject of cute and funny podcasts, First Time is a podcast run by comedian Christian Talbot, and each episode he interviews a new guest about – you guessed it! – their first times. As well as being a fascinating insight into some of his famous guests, it’s also a lovely exploration of teenage angst and lust, and some of the weird crushes people had when they were younger. Check out our favourite episode with comedian Bethany Black, or the slightly-X-rated interview with sex blogger Girl on the Net.
Meg-John and Justin
Perhaps the best way to introduce you to Meg-John and Justin is to tell you that their best piece of sex advice is: “Forget sex advice!” They don’t dole out tips or tell you how to blow someone’s mind in bed – instead Meg-John and Justin encourage you to ask questions and explore: what do you really like? And why? Which of our ideas and narratives around sex are flawed? How does this affect us? Their podcast is like having a pub chat with two fascinating people, who won’t make any assumptions about you, your sex life, or your desires – they just want to invite you to join them on their journey.
If you like your podcasts a little kinkier, then Loving BDSM – hosted by D/S couple Jon Brownstone and Kayla Lords. The podcast covers a whole range of topics from the emotional such as how to tackle insecurities to the practical, such as guides to kink equipment and techniques. It’s a great overview of some key kinky topics with insight from people who love both the lifestyle and each other.
This independent kinky company has been podcasting and blogging for a long time now – and they are never afraid to tackle difficult topics. Their podcasts are usually based around recent blog posts that are written for them by different sex bloggers – the sheer number of contributors to the Kinkcraft blog, and their thoughtful takes on the topics, mean you can guarantee you’ll finish each episode with a lot to think about.
Perhaps fittingly, we’re going to put a shameless plug in here for the Shameless Sex podcast. Hosted by relationship coach Amy Baldwin and our very own head of sales April Lampert, Shameless Sex explores fun and creative ways to enhance your sex life. Whether that’s new sex toys, techniques, or simply tips on communicating and taking control of your sex life, April and Amy use their own and guests’ expertise to motivate you to explore your own sexual desires.
Disability After Dark
Andrew Gurza is a fantastic writer, speaker, activist and podcaster. He’s dropped by our blog before to talk about masturbation, disability, and his experiences with PULSE. His podcast, Disability After Dark, includes a lot of very frank discussion about sex and disability, weaving in interviews with guests and Andrew’s own experiences too.
We’re a sucker for any podcast that runs an ‘Orgasms’ special episode, and our attention was drawn to Guilty Feminist when they invited one of our favourite sex journalists Alix Fox on to talk about exactly that. Check out this episode, which was recorded live at the Udderbelly, to hear about all things orgasmic!
Seamlessly mixing personal stories, in-depth reporting, and the odd review of a sex toy or two, the Girl Boner podcast has a huge archive for you to delve into. We’d especially recommend the episode ‘Feeling Sexy + Keeping Sparks Alive‘ because it features our very own PULSE III DUO. Listen to hear what August McLaughlin – host of Girl Boner – thinks of PULSE.
Have we missed any out? We’re excited to see so many fantastic podcasts tackling sex and relationships, but inevitably we’ll have left some fab ones off this list – please do tweet or facebook us your suggestions for who else we should listen to!
