Besides, it features a bunch of interviews from musicians, writers, sex and relationship coaches, to regular Joes and Janes with their own share of stories. One particular account that stuck with me was from a guest named Matt who talked about how sex workers were crucial for getting rid of the feeling of shame following his Christian upbringing.

Shameless Sex – Sex Podcast with Amy and April
Extravagant as its name, Shameless Sex delivers exactly what it stands for. And yes, that’s shameless sex, meaning – talk about sex without all the shame, guilt, and taboo we’re used to experiencing alongside it in mainstream media.
The Shameless Sex podcast is created by two very brave and smart women going by the names of Amy Baldwin and April Lamper. Amy is a sex and relationship coach and a certified sex educator, so you might’ve already guessed she has a lot of expertise behind her, and A LOT to say on the subject of sex and pleasure. April is also a sex educator and a VP at a pleasure product company, so she also knows a thing or two about the pleasures of sex and erotica.
Their goal is to create and open up a field where people can discuss and engage in topics about sexuality and pleasure without shame. In their weekly sex podcast, they often talk about ways you can strengthen and spice up your sex life, but also empower your relationship in general.
Shameless Sex abounds with both the basics and more complex, nuanced topics
Honestly, it’s a great place to start when it comes to sex advice of almost any kind. You and your partner can find the basics like how to give hand jobs or how to masturbate better, for starters.
But you can also find more nuanced and complex subjects such as premature ejaculation and delayed ejaculation (a talk with experts). Also, you can hear about sex-positive parenting and how to work on your sex life and intimacy when you have kids. There’s also talks on why great sex can mean much more than just an orgasm, how it is to have sex while suffering from chronic pain, and so on and so on. And it’s not just simple coverage of these topics! There’s also actual advice on what you can do about it, suggestions, tips on what actions you can take and better your sex life.
Basically, there’s lots of it in there – for everybody.

We Gotta Thing – Swingin’ Hot Sex Podcast With Mr. and Mrs. Jones
Mr. and Mrs. Jones sounds like a hot couple from a spy movie. In reality, we’re talking about a swingers couple who’ve been together for more than 30 years. Yes, a couple who’s decided to redefine their relationship after their kids have grown up and become more independent.
Their credo is: “We believe in emotional monogamy and sexual non-monogamy”, which I think is very nicely put and it tells you all you need to know about their relationship.
The Joneses are very keen on sharing their take on what it means to have a non-monogamous marriage. They hope that their experiences, along with all the good and bad sides of it, will help other couples navigate these exciting, but also challenging waters of a different kind of marital life.

Bawdy Storytelling – Real Life Sexual Adventures With Dixie De La Tour
Sexual folklorist – that’s how the creator of this podcast, Dixie De La Tour, describes herself. And she’s not far from the truth.
Originating from live shows on the West Coast, Bawdy Storytelling features a true wealth of sex stories from people across the states, the topics being almost endless.
This is owed to the same wealth of characters proliferating throughout the podcast and live shows. Actors, poets, comedians, sex therapists, regular people with their own crazy kinks, and stories all show up in Bawdy Storytelling. And they love giving their own take on what it means to be a sexual being in this world, with all the messy and nitty-gritty details of pleasure and embarrassment that come along with it.

Savage Lovecast – Listen to the Wise Words of Veteran Sex Advice Columnist and Author Dan Savage
Dan Savage is a well-known columnist who’s been writing on sex and relationships since the 1990s. San started his “Savage Love” column in The Stranger, a Seattle alternative weekly newspaper. It has since then been syndicated to over 50 papers throughout the US and Canada.
Savage Lovecast brings a variety of topics to the fore, and since Dan is a happily married gay man, you can expect to find lots of LGBT topics as well. But his sex podcast isn’t limited to only queer people, of course.
Savage’s podcast often includes callers who pose questions anonymously. He often calls the people who’ve left their number and talks with them. And yes, all of this is being featured in the podcast. Savage also invites sex-positive guests as co-hosts and for the more difficult questions. He tends to consult with sex therapists, doctors, and a range of other experts in sex and relationships for more specific and professional advice.
He also invites guests, but this is usually featured in the so-called Magnum episodes. These are about 80-minute long and require a subscription. But the Micro episodes are totally free and they last around 50 minutes (including ads).
The great thing about Dan’s sex podcast is how inclusive and modern it is. His views and sex advice have remained empathetic and relevantt for all these 30 years that they’ve been on-air and in print.
Celestial Sex – Sex Podcast With Chris Duce For People Growing Up Religious
When I set out to compile this list of sex podcasts I said to myself I had to make it as diverse and inclusive as possible. And that also means including a podcast that deals with people struggling with religious dogmas and overly conservative upbringings where sex was a major taboo.
The host, Chris Duce, has gone through a Mormon upbringing himself, which means he’s more than capable of directly empathizing with people from similar backgrounds, as well as giving a first-hand account of his experiences regarding religion and questioning beliefs about sex and love.
Celestial Sex is structured in the form of interviews. Each episode is usually connected to a particular guest that has also been raised Mormon. Some of them have since lapsed, became atheists, or stuck to their faith but managed to talk about sex in a more open way. The host and the guests (people from the entertainment industry and also regular people) talk about how it is to grow up in a very religious family or social setting. The share the awkward conversations they had with their parents and important religious figures in their lives. And they also don’t shy away from talking about their first sexual experiences, how they view sex now, etc.
Honestly, it’s pretty rare to find a sex podcast that combines religion, sex, and love so adeptly and so wisely as Celestial Sex does it. I highly recommend it for those of you interested in these topics.
I mean where else will you have the chance to listen to a young woman who’s a feminist Mormon giving you a list of reading suggestions where the first on the list is I Love Dick by Chris Kraus?
My Dad Wrote a Porno – Sex Podcast About Erotic Fiction From a British Father Hosted by His Son and Two of His Friends
I mean, I think you can tell from the title that this will be a hilarious sex podcast! Besides, I dare you to listen to it while you’re riding the subway and trying to keep a straight face. Won’t work, trust me.
So how’s this a sex podcast? Well, it’s actually about erotic fiction. There are three hosts, James Cooper, Jamie Morton, and Alice Levine. Morton’s dad (with his pen name Rocky Flinstone) is the one that wrote the series of erotic fiction going by the title of “Belinda Blinked”. (I also love the title). So, in each episode Morton reads his father’s book series while his two friends listen intently and regularly intervene by cracking a joke, giving a comment, or posing a question in regard to the narrative.
The sometimes awkward prose adds to the charm and is saved by the wit and sheer love shared between the hosts and the work in question.
I urge you to start from the beginning, and make sure you don’t miss a single chapter from the books!
Oh, and before I finish yammering about it, I also mustn’t forget mentioning how My Dad Wrote a Porno has a host of celebrities as fans. Elijah Wood, Daisy Ridley, Michael Sheen, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Nicholas Hoult are just some of the names among them. Top that with 250 million podcast downloads, an HBO comedy special, and two sell-out world tours, and you definitely have a surprise smash hit of a podcast.

Dive deep into sex talk with sexologist Juliet Allen. There’s plenty for everyone in her podcast so I think if you decide on this one, you definitely won’t be the one drawing the short straw.
Allen likes to talk about how to have hot sex. I mean, after all, she is a sexologist, Tantra Practitioner, and head teacher at something called Pleasure School™. And, she also likes to consider the ways you can achieve a deeper emotional connection with your partner.
