Our first podcast of 2018 – yey! Happy new year!
For this one we decided to take a leaf out awesome sex & relationships podcaster Dan Savage’s book and answer a few questions from listeners together on one show. Content warning: this episode begins with us singing our version of the Savage Lovecast theme song in an *ahem* beautiful homage to Dan Savage!
The podcast this time is all about how to make the festive season as consensual and self-caring as possible (once Justin got over laughing about our sleighbell sound-effects). We’re focusing on Christmas here because it is so omnipresent in our culture, but hopefully it’ll be of use when considering other religious festivals and family-focused events as well.
In this podcast we discuss the short story ‘Cat Person’ by Kristen Roupenian which appeared in The New Yorker last week and has been shared all over social media, partly due to its resonances with the recent #metoo campaign.
This week on the podcast we did a quick follow-up to last time’s conversation about physical and mental health by addressing how to get back into sex after a gap. Specifically we were trying to answer this question from a listener…
This week on the podcast we focused on how to navigate sex when you’re feeling physically or emotionally under the weather or low, as many people do over the Winter period.
In this episode we chat about our work together in the light of really disappointing sales of our book. We reflect on our discussions we’ve been having lately about whether we should continue working together.
Post #MeToo we chatted some more about consent. Rather than aiming to get someone to do something, what if you could make consent your aim?
We recorded this podcast about power and consent in light of the allegations made against Harvey Weinstein (but before #MeToo trended, again). We talk about how power and consent is actually an issue that probably affects all of us at some point.
In this week’s podcast we answer the following question:
I’m an older queer guy who’s just started dating a really lovely trans man. Apart from talking to him, which we are doing, where can I get helpful advice and insight into my own “stuff”? I came out late in life – and I am not really used to a lot of the gay scene – which is probably an advantage! Any advice or comments gratefully received 🙂
We start with discussions about whether we will still be podcasting in 30 years time, how much MJ likes Red Dwarf, Derby County winning a game of football and then how to deal with crushes.
