In the words of Cameron Diaz in the chic flick classic, In Her Shoes “half the fun of sex...is talking about it.” These are words I firmly believe in. Whether you are looking to be a fly on the wall to another couples therapy session or just need to know that you aren’t alone in having that kink these will have you covered.
Even if you are new to the world of podcasts or haven’t ventured into the sex and relationships genre, most people have heard of the smash-hit My Dad Wrote A Porno. Hosted by James Morton, Alice Levine, and James Cooper this is the podcast that essentially broke the internet. With a sold out tour and over 150 million downloads, if you are dipping your toes into sex and relationship podcasts for the first time this one will have you in fits of laughter and is an easy place to start.

If you want friendly voices with great advice have a listen to The Hotbed.
2. "Probably True"
There are loads of podcasts out there talking about sex and the LGBT experience. So what makes Probably True so great? Seamlessly combining filthy storytelling with more serious issues which face many LGBT people, Probably True will have you hooked from episode one. Hosted by Scott Flashheart and described as “unapologetic, unflinching filthiness” Probably True will leave you feeling like you’re listening to something a little naughty but also completely seen.
3. "Savage Lovecast"
Savage Lovecast is straight up addictive listening and will leave you blushing but super informed. American columnist, Dan Savage is joined by a number of experts and guests to provide you with all of the love and sex advice you could ever want or need. Venturing into the topics of squirting, Sub/Dom relationships, and what to do when you catch your partner having an intimate moment alone, Savage Lovecast is like having a friend with the best sex stories and most informed advice.
4. "Laid Bare"
Advertised as for the “sex positive and opinionated”, Oloni, Shakira Scott, and Shani Jamilah are sorting out their listeners' sex problems one podcast at a time. If you have an issue these girls have covered it. The worst sex ever, phone sex, and one night stands are all recent episodes, as well as consent and body counts. The thing that sets Laid Bare apart is these girls seriously know what they are talking about and listening to them makes you feel like you are with friends. The incredibly empowered and sex positive trio will have you feeling like you can take on anything.
5. "Project Pleasure"
I don't know what you remember from high school sex education but for me it was a lot of putting condoms on bananas, tampons in water, and vague explanations of how you get pregnant. Project Pleasure brands itself as putting the pleasure back into safe sex and relationship education. Every week Anouszka Tate and Frankie Wells come together to talk about the things you probably didn't learn at school such as the orgasm gap, the social stigma surrounding STIs, and the good and bad sides of pornography. Each episode contains Good Debriefing from industry experts, real stories in Switching Positions, and some serious honesty in Real Talk. If you are looking for down to earth advice with girls who sound just like your friends (but seriously informed) Project Pleasure is the podcast for you.
Whether you want to spice up your commute or are in need of some serious sex advice there is no topic left untouched by these podcasts. Sexy, funny, and super informative, they will leave you feeling like an expert and ready to tackle just about anything.
