We’re in a podcast renaissance at the moment – there are so many amazing shows out there that sometimes it’s hard to know what to listen to next. Luckily for you, we’ve rounded up a list of our favorite episodes from the best sex podcasts out there!
So whether you enjoy listening to in-depth investigative podcasts about sex trafficking or “so-bad-it’s-good” audio-porn, we’ve got the best sex podcasts (and our favourite episodes) to delight your ears.
Starting way back in 2006, this sex advice podcast from Dan Savage (who also writes a weekly advice column called Savage Love) is full of no-nonsense advice and amazing guests, including adult performers Stormy Daniels and Buck Angel.
A proponent of non-monogamy in relationships – he famously coined the term ‘monogamish’ to describe couples who live a lifestyle somewhere in between monogamy and polyamory – his advice is straight talking but always comes from the heart.
Two Australian sex workers – a stripper and a prostitute working in a brothel – sit down together and discuss their experiences of the sex industry. Brash and unafraid to speak their minds, this is a great show to listen to if you want to hear about sex work from people who actually do it for a living.
Sold in America
This 9 episode series follows journalist Noor Tagouri as she investigates sex trafficking within America. This initial aim leads her down a path of exploration of the sex industry generally, looking at what makes people pay for sex, and what the sex industry looks like in the wake of FOSTA/SESTA.
Perhaps most interestingly, as you follow Noor on her journey, you see her realize that the world of buying and selling sex isn’t as black and white as it appears to be at first glance.
American Sex Podcast
Sex educators Sunny Megatron and her partner Ken Melvoin-Berg talk about all aspects of sex and relationships. From cast fetishes to BBW porn.
Each week they invite a different guest who leads the conversation and is an expert on their chosen topic. That way you always finish each episode feeling more informed about something that often you didn’t even know existed!
Pounded in the Butt by my Own Butt Podcast
If you enjoy your porn with a side of absurdism, then this is the podcast for you. Based on the erotic short stories of Chuck Tingle, each episode features a celebrity guest (Mara Wilson, Justin McElroy) reading one of the author’s works.
Many feature unusual pairings including a man and a sentient jet plane, a man and a dinosaur lawyer, and a man and his own living butt.
They are more hilarious than arousing, but surprisingly they are also heartwarming. Tingle’s earnest declaration that ‘love is real’ at the end of every show starts to rub off on you after a while.
Queer Sex Ed Podcast
A wonderful podcast exploring sex in all its forms through a queer lens. Both of the presenters identify as queer and are gender non-conforming. Their focus is on redefining the boundaries and definitions of sex education to be more inclusive of everyone.
The Butterfly Effect
A seven part series hosted by author Jon Ronson, this podcast looks at the decision by one person to create free online pornography and traces the effect that this has had on the world.
His journey takes him far and wide. From meeting porn performers now creating custom porn for people with niche fetishes in order to pay the bills, to discovering the shocking statistics for erectile dysfunction over the past 20 years.
Death, Sex and Money
Whilst this isn’t solely a sex podcast, the episodes about death and money are also well worth listening to. Hosted by Anna Sale, this podcast focuses on a different subject each week, including porn, sugar relationships, and STIs.
There are also episodes that delve deep into the life of someone with an interesting story to tell. For example a high-flying executive who quit her job in her 30's to become a nun. Or a couple who had been married for less than a year when one of them became paralyzed from the waist down.
Enjoy some safe and sexy listening, pleasure seekers.
