Sex Every Day with Caitlin Cogan-Doemner
This week Nicoletta and Simone are joined by Christian author Caitlin Cogan-Doemner. She wrote a series with her husband called Sex Every Day, where they emphasize- you guessed it- having sex everrrryyy day. They talk about how to do this, how to challenge the definition of sex, and how to make a sex menu. Caitlin's perspective comes from an Evangelical Christian background, so this episode also explores the possibilities of being sex positive and Christian. Also thought exercise: do you think you should poop in front of your partner?

The Science of Sexual Fantasy with Dr. Justin Lehmiller
What are the most common fantasies people have? Where do they come from? Why do we have them? And how do I talk to my partner about my fantasies? How can we bring fantasy into real life? We also answer a sex question: I’m a straight man engaged to a beautiful woman, but I never crave sex.
Nevada is the only state in the US where full-service sex work is legal, but how much do most of us really know about the brothel ecosystem? This week we talk to Dr. Sarah Blythe, co-author of Sex and Stigma: Stories of Everyday Life in Nevada’s Legal Brothels, a book that highlights stories of brothel employees. We talk about what her research uncovered–the positives of consensual sex work in Nevada and it’s juxtaposition with outdated rules and laws that encourage unfair labor practices, discrimination, and perpetuate stigma about sex work. We discuss lockdown policies & curfews, the hypocritical nature of towns that rely on brothel revenue but treat sex workers like second class citizens, and the importance of co-authoring this research with a graduate student who is also a legal courtesan.

We also include a clip from Cam's grandpa / KarenLee's dad about sponge baths and aging dicks.
