Here it is, the long-awaited post Exxxotica Chicago 2017 wrap-up episode. It’s a shorter one, both because there wasn’t a lot we (publicly) had to talk about – being a convention and all – and because we’re aiming for shorter, but more frequent, episodes. Continue reading
Sex & Dating Podcasts
It’s real work to build a partnershipEverybody wants to be in love and nobody wants to talk about what it’s really like to find your way there — or what it’s really like once you finally get there. Whether it’s petty arguments, existential crises, heartbreak or finding a new partner, love isn’t all fairy tales and couch cuddles. It’s real work to build a partnership. We love these sex and dating podcasts because they’re some of the few places that really explore the reality of relationships — the good, the bad and the painful and confusing. Whether it’s advice columns or real stories from folks in the trenches of heartbreak or falling in love, each of these relationship podcasts helps to illuminate what it means to be intimate with others and what it teaches us about ourselves.
This is a special double-episode : Pre and Post Stoya-in-Helsinki edition.
Up first : Stoya & Mitcz discuss the recent Alamo Drafthouse Wonder Woman screening controversy, lending itself to a brief discussion of masculinity and Bromance (which is officially a scholarly term, we found out). From there, we discuss the two-part T*ts and Sass articles about Hot Girls Wanted, and what they explain about the adult industry – including what Rashida Jones truly think of sex workers (in her own words).

Ohh boy is this gonna be a fun episode for you. For the first time ever we have a special guest : the one and only Buck Angel. He was a g’damn delight, and managed to talk more than Mitcz! We discuss so many things in this episode, it’s easier to use a list format than the usual paragraph style : Continue reading
We’re back again and finally have a proper name for this thrice-renamed podcast. This time, it’ll stick!
This episode is far more representative of our hopes for this podcast. We talk a LOT about sex work, sex workers, sex workers’ rights, feminism (and the controversy about feminism vs sex work), trans-folk rights and America’s dismissal of same, answering listeners’ questions, making a lot of jokes, keeping a positive attitude, and exploring nuances of so many related topics. If you stick around until the end, you’ll learn how Stoya and Mitcz met, and hear some fun insider knowledge about their respective careers. Continue reading
We kick things off this week with two cat-related news items, leading Stoya and Mitcz to discuss their struggles with their hyper cats that know how to — and always keep trying to — play fetch. Stoya sets the record straight about a story that her TrenchcoatX co-owner (Kayden Kross) loves telling people — and Stoya posits a theory about why Kayden loves embellishing the story every time. Mitcz introduces Stoya to the “Nutscaping” phenomena, leading to a discussion of #freethenipple and Instagram censorship. Stoya discusses her ongoing battle with “the turks” after Mitcz finds an interesting Google trend with her name. We spend the final 1/3rd of the podcast discussing sex trafficking, and mainstream media’s inability to actually report on it properly, and Stoya makes a number of suggestions on how they should deal with the subject moving forward.

Whether it’s petty arguments, existential crises, heartbreak or finding a new partner, love isn’t all fairy tales and couch cuddles. It’s real work to build a partnership. Continue reading
In our inaugural episode, Stoya presents the idea of a “Church of Porn” after a brief discussion of coconut oil as lube while Mitcz tries to get a fuller picture of what the Church of Porn can do for the follower. Our main story this episode is PornHub’s “revenge porn reporting tool”. Stoya has a lot to say on the matter, remains skeptical of their intentions, and gives an overview of the revenge porn space as it relates to multiple online companies, while Mitcz investigates just how crappy the PornHub tool actually is.
