Let’s talk about sex. No, but seriously, let’s talk about it. Or rather, listen to other people talking about it.
In today’s world, we love to be sexually explicit and joke about sex; however, most of us don’t really know much about sex.
But it’s about time we got over the whole ‘taboo’ around sex and start to get real about it because everyone has sex. Now, these podcasts are raw and real, meaning don’t listen to them if your grandma is around (unless she’s into it!).
So, as a self-help writer, I bring you the best sex podcasts to improve intimacy.
Let's Talk About Sex: Top 10 Sex Podcasts
If you want to build upon your sexual knowledge and start to enjoy having sex, it’s time to listen to these podcasts.
Authentic Sex Podcast
Authentic Sex, hosted by Tantra Practitioner and Australia’s leading sexologist Juliet Allen, the podcast focuses on popular topics like self-pleasure, sex education and tantric sex.
It’s candid, honest and sex-only (so don’t expect any conversations about sports). An average episode is between 30 to 40 minutes.
Guys We F#@$!D
Sex isn’t supposed to be serious and comedians Krystyna Hutchinson and Corinne Fisher know this. In this podcast, they let you in on their wild, naughty, and weird lives – let’s say they give off strong Sex and the City vibes.
These two comedians dive into their sex lives and bring on interesting guests to spice things up. Oh, and things get spicy.
Dying For Sex
Dying For Sex is created by Nikki Boyer originally about her friend Molly, and how her cancer diagnosis inspired her to explore her own life to help her feel alive. This also pushes her to explore her sexuality, and she shares her experiences with us.
Nikki and Molly have raw and candid conversations about mortality and sex, also talking about fetishes and kinks. Throughout the podcast, Molly, who has stage 4 cancer, shows there’s no time like the present. Each episode is around 45 minutes long and worth every minute.
Where Should We Begin?
Esther Perel is one of the leading psychotherapists as she gives groundbreaking insight into modern relationships (she’s also a New York Times bestselling author, too!). Her podcast helps couples navigate through the complexities of relationships and sex.
Not every episode of the podcast involves sex or sexuality, but each episode aims to help couples gain a better understanding of their partner and relationship, in and out of the bedroom. Each episode is around 45 to 60 minutes – and totally worth it.
Why Are People Into That?!
We’ve all wondered to ourselves, why are people into that? Luckily, this podcast goes into that. Host and producer Tina Horn invites special guests to explore an honest and deep look into fetishes, kinks, and other sexual activities outside of conventional norms.
It mixes educational information, personal stories, history, science, and popular culture to help you understand and gain better insight into your sexuality and relationships.
Girls On Porn
As you can tell by the name, this podcast doesn’t hold anything back. Hosts Rachel and Laura are two anonymous hosts that talk about porn. In every episode, they review porn based on popular search terms.
Rachel and Laura interview porn stars and find content that fits all your needs. Girls On Porn is not only a great podcast, but an amazing search engine as well.
You may not have a lot of time on your hands, so listening to chit-chatter isn’t on your list of things to do. If that’s the case, then this is the podcast for you. It gives you straightforward, to-the-point information about sex.
The podcast is hosted by sex therapist Laurie Watson and couples counselor George Faller. In their podcasts, they cover everything from sex shaming to fetishes. Nothing is off the table.
My Dad Wrote a Porno
Well, you probably weren’t expecting this title, which makes it even more interesting. My Dad Wrote a Porno is hosted by Jamie Morton, a guy who thought he had a normal dad until he discovered he had been secretly writing erotica under the pseudonym Rocky Flintstone. Now, this is quite the opening!
After Jamie discovered this, he invited his friends over and made fun of it on a microphone, and that’s how this podcast came to light. Now, it’s one of the most popular podcasts in the UK, with its own HBO special in the U.S. It’s funny, charming, and very witty. Once you start listening, you can’t stop.

Disability After Dark
If there’s one thing that doesn’t get talked about, it’s sex and disabilities. Considering most of us can’t talk about sex without blushing, it makes sense why we don’t talk about the different aspects of sex. However, this podcast does an amazing job of bringing this topic to light.
Disabilities After Dark is hosted by Disability Awareness Consultant Andrew Gurza, who focuses on having real conversations about disability and sexuality. He has over 200 episodes lined up, covering everything from positions to inclusive language.
Andrew does an outstanding job normalizing disability and sex, shedding light on the disabled, and helping the non-disabled community break down biases and misconceptions.
