More people than ever are exploring the possibility of opening up their relationships — and not only that, they are fighting for their legal rights to love however and whomever they choose. In Polyamorous, reporter Jenny Yuen digs into why open relationships are such a hot topic, why they’re becoming more normalized, and how relationships with multiple partners can be a practical alternative to monogamy and an intriguing expedition through uncharted emotional territory.
Briana Banks is a veteran porn star with 20 years experience in the industry. A former Vivid contract star, Briana experienced the last of the "golden age" of the contract stars, alongside big names such as Jenna Jameson and Tera Patrick. In this episode, Briana talks about the highlights of her career, as well as the lows-- including her abusive relationship with fellow porn star Bobby Vitale and her descent into drug and alcohol addiction. Today Briana is sober and motivated, and has come out on the other side a stronger and wiser woman. Her inspiring story gives hope to all of us who have experienced our own life struggles.
This week, Sluts and Scholars welcomes suprihmbé, who you might know as @thotscholar. On the docket: womanism, definitions of sex work, rejecting inclusivity, bisexuality, OMNIsexuality and the racialization of sexual slurs. It’s a good one!
When #TravelJunkie Cerulean journeys to Seattle for a friend’s wedding, her modest budget means a room at the Green Tortoise Hostel. A reservation error turned her woman’s room booking into a coed dorm – but she’s OK with it when handsome yoga rockstar Scott walks in. They end up canoodling over a globe and a few beers on a pub crawl, nerding out on World Travel. Scott ends her multi-year dry spell with a life lesson on sex and pleasure – and leaves her with new knowledge that will stay with her forever.

Your erotic desires may be far vaster than can ever be met in your lifetime. What do we do with desires unfulfilled – so that we can be free to pursue more erotic fulfillment? In this paradox there is a rich terrain of both personal and relational exploration – so you can figure out which of your desires might be met more fully and which may never be touched.
Cam finds his sexy voice and KarenLee discovers her new fav lube. We're all over the place in this Monday Morning After Show (MAS)! We chat about whether we convey our authentic selves on the podcast and in life, Donald Trump, moving apartments twice in one week, death, and of course sex.
