13 love and sex podcasts to spice up your ride
The best podcasts make you feel like you’re chatting – uh, having a very one-sided conversation – with a close friend. This is why the medium works so well when the subject is love, sex or meet; if you find a good pod, it’s like listening to a smart friend give you their best advice every week or so.
We can’t get enough of it, so we decided to ask marriage therapists, writers, and comedians to share their favorite love podcast. See what they had to say below.
“My love / sex / everything favorite jazz podcast recently is“ Private Parts Unknown. ”It’s a relatively new travel podcast where hosts Courtney and Sofiya interview people in different cities around the world (their first is Helsinki) on gender and sex.I came for the fun jokes about how foreign cities have different attitudes about sex and sexuality, but I stayed for the in-depth discussions on the structural issues that are why foreign cities have these different attitudes. Johnathan Appel, a comedian in New York
“Married couple Rachel and Dave Hollis have created an amazing podcast on how we can be intentional to create a great relationship. They offer practical advice and speak candidly about topics that many couples are afraid to bring up openly. Plus, they’re hilarious and will make you laugh even when talking about tough topics! “- Vanessa Marin, sex therapist and creator of online courses
“We knew Nicole Byer was hilarious and engaging from her Netflix show ‘Nailed It!’ and her comedy specials, but this podcast is Nicole next level. While she honestly talks about her own dating dilemmas, Nicole’s fun friends and interesting experts help her understand why she (and so many other women today) are still single. – Damona hoffman, dating coach and facilitator of the “Dates and companions“Podcast
“My favorite podcast is ‘LoveLink’, hosted by two Brooklyn therapists who interview experts from all disciplines – from researchers to astrologers to psychologists – on all things love and sex. The conversations are captivating in their honesty. They explore the intimate corners of human relationships with such thoughtful undertone, like the latest episode on the impact of attachment styles on our adult relationships. – Tara Fairbanks, therapist in Los Angeles
“My favorite sex podcast is ‘Sex Talk With My Mom’. Cam Poter and her mom, KarenLee Poter, talk about an insane variety of sexual issues, ranging from basics like pegging and anal, to orgasmic meditation and cream pies. They interview the most fascinating experts (the phone sex operator is particularly good). They are so vulnerable and they keep listeners up to date with everything that is going on in their life, so the pod is a mix of education and pretending that you are listening to your friends’ sex gossip except that they are mother and son. Their dynamic is also great as they disagree on everything (dude in his late 20s and hates casual sex). Highly recommend! “- Ginny Hogan, sex and dating writer at Elite Daily
“My favorite podcast that focuses on love is the New York Times ‘Modern Love’ podcast based on the column of the same name. The short essays submitted by general readers on love are read aloud by celebrities and, on occasion, by the author himself. An intro and music are added and the essay is read aloud like a soliloquy. It definitely brings a new dimension that you can’t just read in print or online. Stories are often vulnerable and touching. “- Marni Feuerman, registered psychotherapist and author of Ghosted and Breadcrumbed: Stop Falling For Unavailable Men and Be Smart About Healthy Relationships.
“I love ‘Modern Love’ because a lot of storytellers recognize that modern dating is all about presentation and you have to stand out when people are glaring at you, all of which I try to help my clientele! It’s a great look at how people look at other people and how you can improve your game to stand out in the crowd. “- Ollie Pearce, a dating coach
“In an otherwise vanilla mix of sex and love podcasts, host Damona Hoffman delivers some incredibly interesting and diverse guests. Plus, she talks about meeting her husband online long before it becomes the new normal. I would give him two condoms! – Natasha Lewin, editor-in-chief of Zuckerberg Media and co-host of the “Once Upon a Timestamp” podcast
“I recently discovered Ken Page’s ‘Deeper Dating’ podcast. Ken breaks down common blockages to finding healthy love using proven, research-based psychological approaches (eg, attachment theory) and accessible, actionable language. What a relief to find wise dating advice that avoids outdated and damaging “advice” that emphasizes games! In addition, Ken is kind and pleasant to listen to. “- Jessica engle, founder of Bay Area Dating Coach
“Each week, the very funny host and human Rebecca Bulnes talks to the guests about their childhood favorites, from elementary school to high school. It’s hilarious and at the same time, I feel better naming a Build-A-Bear after a guy I had a crush on in seventh grade who said no when I finally had the courage to ask him to. dance with Me. “- Carrie Wittmer, author of New eroticism for feminists
“I’m still browsing the archives for ‘Dear Sugars’, an advice podcast produced by WBUR and The New York Times and hosted by writer Steve Almond and Wild memory Cheryl Strayed. The couple handed out tough love and emphatic advice on everything from ghost and sexless marriages, to getting away from toxic parents and learning to say ‘no’ to the people in your life. Steve and Cheryl are both quite comfortable using their own life mistakes as learning moments for listeners, which makes the capsule a beautiful ‘older sister giving lessons of the great life’. ‘. “- Brittany Wong, lifestyle reporter at HuffPost
“My favorite podcast is the ‘Sexology’ podcast with Dr. Moali, a Californian psychologist born in Iran who moved to the United States with her family at the age of 17. What I like about the podcast is Dr. Moali’s approach. and style. She offers sex science research and practical tools to improve her sexuality and relationships in a curious and informative way, which makes it easier to absorb taboo subjects. Each week, Dr. Moali interviews a variety of guests including sex researchers and therapists on topics such as polyamory, conscious sex, sexual jealousy and more. If you are looking to expand your knowledge base on sexual health and learn from the experts in sexuality, this is it. You can also listen to the podcast in Farsi! “- Janet Brito, psychologist and sex therapist in Honolulu
“Both are greeted by real women, with real-life experiences talking about the inner workings of relationships and orgasm. Rémy Kassimir, host of “How Cum”, could not reach orgasm and accompanied everyone step by step through every detail of the female orgasm. And “ Girls Gotta Eat, ” hosted by Rayna and Ashley, is about the inner workings of romantic relationships and adventures: when to move in, whether to move in or when to play for the night and let go. Love them both! – Mara Marek, host of “The Happy Never After podcast“
