When podcasts on murder, politics, and fracking feel too heavy, there's always a sex podcast to keep you entertained wherever you're tuning in. From raunchy stories, to studies of sex cultures around the world, to sex Q&As and advice, there's more than enough variety on the Internet to pique your interests. NSFW? Don't even worry about it.
Guys We F@#ked
This podcast, hosted by comedians Krystyna Hutchinson and Corinne Fisher, lets you be a fly on the wall for the raunchier, weirder reincarnation of Sex and the City. On the show, Hutchinson and Fisher discuss their own sex lives (hilariously, we might add) and even bring some of their conquests on as guests.
Why Are People Into That?!
If you've ever wanted to safely dip a toe (um, make that an ear?) into the world of festish culture from the safety of the other side of your headphones, then Why Are People Into That?! is just what you've been jonesing for. Host Tina Horn talks to guests about everything from porn and BDSM to cannibalism and daddy culture.
Sex With Emily
If you're looking for something a little more advice-y, subscribe to Sex With Emily. Hosted by sex & relationship expert, author, talk show host (and Bravo TV star—you know, just for good measure) Emily Morse, this sex advice podcast offers the answers every question you've ever had about sex but were too embarrassed to ask, along with a bunch of questions it never even occurred to you to ever ask.
Death, Sex, and Money
In Death, Sex, and Money, host Anna Sale dives headfirst into not just sex, but the big questions and hard choices in all areas of life that aren't considered "polite" to talk about. Since real life isn't polite, this is absolutely necessary.
Celestial Sex is here for anyone who grew up in a religious or otherwise repressive environment when it came to sex and needs to talk it out. Host Chris Duce understands this firsthand—he was raised Mormon and spends a lot of the show reflecting on his upbringing and his relationship with growing up. These days, he also brings on guests who he interviews about their experiences, all in the same realm.
Dying for Sex
Nikki Boyer created this popular Wondery podcast about her friend Molly, and how her cancer diagnosis inspired sexual adventures to help her feel alive. If you're looking for a show that's about sex, but not just about sex, this is a must-listen.
Girls Gotta Eat
Ashley Hessentine and Rayna Greenberg brilliantly combine two of the best things in the world—food and sex—in this witty, often raw show about dating in the modern age. The hosts tackle truly relevant topics for anyone in the social media dating scene, from micro-cheating to how to know if you're being benched and more.
Sex With Strangers
This one isn't about having sex with strangers so much as it's about talking about sex with strangers. Host Chris Sowa travels far and wide to find strangers willing to sit dow and chat with him about S-E-X and the conversations are usually nothing short of fascinating.
If you want informative, straight talk about sex with no punches pulled, allow yourself to binge the back catalogue of Foreplay Radio, hosted by sex therapist Laurie Watson and couples counselor George Faller. The show covers everything from kinks and festishes to trauma and sex shaming.
The Kiss Me Quick's Erotica
This anthology podcast, hosed by Rose Caraway, is a collection of weirdly wonderful and super sexy stories for the erotic enthusiast. The podcast describes itself as an "escape into the fantastic, the outlandish, and the literary" and boasts a library of sexy stories about everything from space pirates to lonely ghosts and everything in between.
If your erotica tastes run more in the fan fiction realm, Fangasm has you covered with sexy tales centered on your favorite fictional characters, from Jim and Pam in The Office to just about every pairing of Harry Potter characters you can possibly imagine.
We Gotta Thing
Curious about the swinger lifestyle? In We Gotta Thing, married couple, identified only as Mr. and Mrs. Jones, openly (and, fair warning, explicitly) discuss their experiences in the swinging lifestyle.
