The Best Sex Podcasts: A Complete Guide

Want to know which podcasts to listen to if you fancy something more adult?

Podcasts have never been more popular than during 2019 and these handy downloadable audio files have enjoyed unprecedented growth as an alternative source of information and entertainment. According to the latest stats, there are more than 700,000 active podcasts offering more than 29 million episodes between them. Considering these figures were just 550,000 podcasts and 18.5 million episodes at the same time in 2018, this represents an enormous 27.3% increase! And they cover a huge range of topics from music and entertainment to celebrity tips, home styling and fashion/beauty. Of course, there is also a good selection of adults-only podcasts available too.

In this feature, we take a look at some of the best sex podcasts to listen to for 2019 covering a wide range of genres. From educative programs teaching you how to get the most pleasurable sex and podcasts discussing good sexual health to erotic fiction, real life stories from sex workers and other sexy programs, we’ve got something for everyone.

Why Listen to a Sex Podcast?

With the exception of the latest trends in ASMR and some audiobooks on fiction, the vast majority of porn is image-based; something to be watched rather than something to listen to.

However, written erotica and audio porn is becoming more and more popular as people look to discover new ways to enjoy adult content. Some of the reasons behind this may be to do with opting for ethical (or feminist) porn or could simply be a case of opening your mind to new formats. Thanks to podcasts, porn and all things sex-related can now be enjoyed on the go. In fact, this is the main selling point of why podcasts are catching on so quickly; they offer niche and bite-size audio programs designed to fit in to someone’s hectic schedule with very little effort.

Some podcasts are all about creating a sexy and steamy environment with bawdy fiction and illicit true stories. Others are more educational with the focus being on sexual health and how to achieve better sexual relationships. Yet more are simply targeting a broader audience with magazine-style shows aimed at being entertaining as well as informative.

Sex podcasts give you a bite sized dose of education and/or information. Image via Pixabay.

The beauty of the sex podcast is that unlike reading or watching a show about sex, listening to one can be done in complete privacy (as long as you have headphones).Usually around 25-30 minutes long, they are a perfect length to listen to on a commute or whilst you are waiting between appointments. Okay, so some of these (particularly those whose aim is to turn you on) might not be ideal for listening to in public, but most can be enjoyed wherever and whenever you like.

Though the podcast has been on a break since February 2018 with no news on a reprisal, the archives of 180+ episodes are well worth subscribing to on your favorite streaming service.

Discussing a sexual activity each week alongside something more commonplace there is a philosophical edge to this podcast which elevates it from simply being entertaining to something more cerebral….all cleverly delivered with great wit and energy by the show’s hosts, Marcus Parks and Jackie Zebrowski.

Each episode is around 30 minutes length and features guests who talk openly about their issues including a woman who is considering going into escort work, one whose fiancé has a non-existent sex drive and how to deal with a sexual experimentation that goes horribly wrong. All of this interspersed with more typical human problems like dealing a fuck-up of a brother, reconnecting with friends who have cut you off for the right reasons and how to survive a heat wave.

It’s a great show that has been off air for too long and thoroughly deserves a place on our list.

More InformationSex Talk With My Mom

With over a million downloads, Sex Talk With My Mom is one of the most popular sex podcasts on our list. It’s exactly what you think it is from the title; co-host Cam Poter openly discusses some of the frankest of topics with his mom, KarenLee.

Sounds cringeworthy? Well, it probably should be but stand-up comedian, Cam, and his sexually liberated Cougar mom make it pretty comfortable to listen to despite the obvious ‘taboo’ dynamics.

They have a great chemistry on the broadcasts and the tone is honest and kind but with great humor and authenticity. And that’s what makes it compulsive listening, the honesty of their discussions.

Recent episodes have included topics such as:

  • Mom Airdrops Me a Dick Pic
  • Sex With Co-Workers – Yay Or Nay?
  • Mom Cockblocks Cam In The Hot Tub
  • Yoga Boners & KarenLee’s Worst Date

Whilst Cam is relishing the drive the popularity of this podcast is giving his career (they perform live together across the US and have been interviewed for the Today Show and Tosh.O) his mom doesn’t take any of his bullshit. In fact, it’s really mom who steals the show on this podcast and builds on her own career as a successful YouTuber. Yes, prior to the launch of the podcast in 2015, KarenLee was vlogging her experiences as a mature mother going back to the world of dating after tragedy violently took the life of her husband (and Cam’s father) in 2006.

There is no question that grief and deep affection has bonded these two hosts and it is a genuinely enjoyable hour that you spend in their company, even if it is listening to them banter about X-rated topics. A clear favorite for many, we have no problems recommending this brilliant sex podcast.

A critically acclaimed podcast in which comedians Corinne Fisher and Krystyna Hutchinson interview men that they’ve had sex with or simply bounce off each other as they talk candidly about kinks, relationships and sexual health.

Irrespective of whether you like this pair’s approach to real life sex stories and frank sex talk, there is a lot you can learn from these podcasts.

Previous episode titles include:

  • You got circumcised at seven?
  • The doctor prescribed jerking off?
  • You couldn’t find the right hole?
  • You took your own virginity?
  • Am I being brainwashed by porn?

Sure, they have almost entirely run out of guys who they’ve slept with who are willing to talk online about their encounters with either of these two girls but the archive is full of some astonishingly funny interviews with these brave fellas. Most recently they have been topping up their schedule with special guests and live shows.

She’s even covered sex work, pornography and polyamory as well as sex toys, enemas and power exchange.

Delivered in educational and intelligent way, there is plenty of psychology and science helping listeners to understand these fetishes and not to further stigmatize them. Horn weaves a clever blend of historical background, popular culture and personal stories to illuminate often very misunderstood aspects of human sex lives.

Don’t get us wrong, this is a very positive podcast about the lifestyle but you do get the very real conversations between a couple who are navigating this world together.

By now, the episodes are less a foray into swinging and more a way for the hosts to share some of their experiences. However, the show was never meant to be a step-by-step guide just one couple who want to overshare….thank goodness.

If you are looking for more of an instructional kind of thing the, happily, the pair actually do sell lifestyle courses via their website. They aren’t professional counselors of coaches but they do talk a lot of sense and have put in some mileage to share their hints and tips.

One of the longest running podcasts on our list and with good reason. Polyamory Weekly is a community-based broadcast that lets listeners share their experiences of this kind of lifestyle. From sexual to romantic relationships, the host navigates this alternative to monogamy…warts and all.

Originally founded as a resource for the poly community, it has a huge following of loyal fans who value the expertise of the show’s host, sex-positive educator and activist, Cunning Minx. She is a warm presenter who cares about her subject and her listeners and she gives some thoughtful and useful advice.

Each episode delves into a cornucopia of issues that can be faced by the poly-amorous lifestyle from how to live honestly, dealing with family and friends to safe sex with multiple partners. In fact, only a small percentage of what is discussed here is about sex….most of the discussions are more about living your life as someone who ‘deviates’ from the societal ‘norm’.

For people who are new to the poly journey and even for those who have been navigating  this lifestyle for some time, this podcast will offer plenty of useful information and is a fascinating insight into non-monogamy.

Married poly-couple, Jeremie and Bryde, use this podcast to share their experiences of being a less than ‘traditional’ pairing.

They are intelligent and adventurous and, above all, honest about their relationships outside of their coupling. Each episode stands alone but it is well worth starting from the beginnings with this podcast to really get a feel for what they are about.

There’s a lot of talk about threesomes and ‘other lovers’ but they also discuss everything from butt play to camming, kink dungeons to pegging. There isn’t anything (or so it would seem) that they wont talk about together. And this is really refreshing. They present the show in a fun and intimate way  that makes you feel a part of their pillow talk.

Funny

At the heart of any great podcast is a sense of humor, particularly when it comes to sex and relationships. Yes, the more professional and educational podcasts are a little more formal but when talking about something like sex, humor helps and these podcasts offer it in bucketfuls. More irreverent than some of the others on this list, the hosts of these programmes will make you see sex in a wholly different way.

Dan Savage has been a sex advice columnist since 1991 and has a huge following of fans across the U.S. This is partly due to his trademark combination of being empathetic style as well as being (often, brutally) frank and honest. Sometimes his advice is obvious but other time he can catch you completely off guard with some wild and unusual suggestions.

There’s a comprehensive library of episodes to catch up on and it would take you a while if you went back to 2006 to do so. However, you can slip straight into the most recent episode and enjoy whatever the topic is without feeling lost.

Recent discussions include an interview with a bisexual man who shares his first attempt at being a unicorn, the perils of sexting your female friends and the best approach to asking out your co-workers.

Sex and Relationships

Sex and relationships go hand in hand with any kind of discussion on sexual well-being but these podcasts look more at the act of sex in long term partnerships rather than casual hook ups, tinder dates and one night stands.

Porn & Sex Workers

The beauty of a podcast is that you don’t need to be a broadcasting professional to start your own show and this lends itself well to giving voice to those people in our community who often don’t feel they are heard. These podcasts cover those shows that are hosted from people who work (or have worked) in the sex industry including porn, the commercial sex trade and BDSM Dominas.

More Information

Though no longer active The Whorecast was a pretty radical podcast that openly celebrated American sex workers. In fact, celebrated may not go far enough….these women were virtually revered yet normalized.

The whole show only featured guests whose work was in the sex industry so hookers, strippers, erotic masseuses and escorts. This podcast gave voice to the mostly stigmatized women of America taking listeners behind the scenes and lifting the lid on issues such as exploitation, anti-criminalization and workers rights and protections.

Mixed in with the serious issues was a more lighthearted look at some of the popular adult industry events such as The Adult Novelty Expo (attended with popular FTM porn performer, Buck Angel).

It was a provocative podcast that was made by sex workers, for sex workers but very much enjoyed by a whole host of people. It’s a shame that the podcast is now inactive but great that you can listen to the large archive of shows that is its legacy.
